This ryokan was recommended by my sister, who had stayed here a few months before me. Nishimuraya Honkan is, as far as I can tell, the best ryokan in Kinosaki Onsen, with the best onsen facilities, a lovely building (and a gorgeous courtyard garden) and very nice staff. The location is very central, within walking distance of all the other... More

We wanted to stay at a higher-end ryokan and picked Nishimuraya Honkan because of its reputation online and travel materials we read had great things to say about the ryokan. We stayed one night and ordered the seasonal kaiseki dinner + breakfast. We weren't disappointed! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a staff member who spoke English very well. He... More

Kinosaki is one of the famous onsen (hot spring) towns in Japan, located on the western Japan sea coast. Due to the mountains between Osaka/Kyoto and this area, it is not easy to get to, but there are direct trains from both cities. They will pick you up from the station, but you can also eaily walk (<10min). It is... More

I was getting lazy about writing reviews of Japan, until I received the email I have pasted below. It says it all! Kinosakionsen is a great town, the onsens are to be experienced, but it is the stay at this hotel that will absolutely make it! It is one of those experiences in life you won't forget.

From start to finish, an adventure in service and attention. We in the West do not have people worry about where are shoes are or whether they are pointed in the right direction. But the bliss comes from the "onsen" hot spring and the ryokan's lay-out. We were fortunate to have our own outdoor bath which added a romantic touch.... More

This ryokan is a unique experience. It is beautiful, with a wonderful garden which can be admired from most (all ?) rooms. The kaiseki meals are among the most impressive meals I ever experienced (and I have a long experience, including many high level restaurants). It reaches a level of sophistication and variety that you hardly can imagine. And the... More

My sister and I stayed two nights at this ryokan and it was really a fantastic experience. Our room was really large (with additional space, shower, bath and a small onsen outside).

We've been in Japan over 10 days, and it was our night at this amazing inn that has prompted me to not only register with TripAdvisor but also write this review. A brief survey of recent guest comments reveals a nearly unanimous vote of confidence, but I am also motivated to contrast my experience with the isolated and unfortunate guests... More
