This was a fabulous visit we will always remember. The places were full in Kyoto, so we thought we'd spend our time in Kinosakionsen, just a two hour train ride north of Kyoto. (Onsen means hot springs, and Kinosakionsen is a special place that the Japanese have visited - since the Edo Period, I think - for their luxurious baths... More

We spent two nights in Kinosaki just to explore this charming onsen town. As this trip was to celebrate my hubby's birthday, I decided a treat was in store so I booked our first night in this property and it was nothing short of amazing. Looking at the Kinosaki online guide - http://www.kinosaki-spa.gr.jp/global/ - there is no way you can... More

Came for 2 days and impressed by the overall experience -food was great, complemented by attentive yet unintrusive service. Want to thank one of the managers Keiichuro Ikegami especially - our daughter fell ill and he personally drove us to the doctor, acted as translator ad stayed with us both at the doctor and the pharmacy. We are very grateful!

This hotel was a highlight of our holiday in Japan. The staff were incredibly friendly and super polite, and went out of their way to make you comfortable. The gentleman who brought our kaiseki dinner and rearranged our table and futon was fantastic...and the gentleman at the front of the hotel took us to the station himself after we had... More

My adult daughter who is living in Japan had heard about this wonderful hot spring town. I was still jet lagged from just arriving from N. America. This place was the cure. It is really magical and a walk back in time. Colin at the front desk worked hard to make our stay perfect long before we even arrived. He... More

My husband and I visited Nishimuraya Shogetsutei this June and enjoyed very much. We have been to quite a few other Onsen hotels and Nishimuraya's facilities are definitely outstanding. The Hotel is newly built (comparatively speaking) and it is located at the very end of the onsen town. They have a huge and cleverly designed garden, incorporated natural tall trees... More

The tatami room is very spacious and the staff there is very helpful. We enjoy not no only the onsen, but also walking around the onsen town. The river, traditional shops and morning market, Yes, it is real Japan!!!

Tucked into a mountain side, and at the end of the quaint little onsen town of Kinosaki, is the Nishimuraya Shogetsutei Hotel. The town of Kinosaki is considered a part of Kyoto, but is a two hour train ride from Kyoto City Station. Well worth it, as you get to see a little Japan's country side on the way. The... More
