Dear DYA717, Thank you very much for your comment. With its elaborate architecture, an outdoor bath surrounded by nature and a spacious interior bath, Gosho-no-yu is very popular among both tourists and the inhabitants of Kinosaki. We are glad to know you liked it.

This is one of my two fav onsen here at Kinosaki. It comes with an outdoor onsen pool overlooking the waterfall. Due to the location which is of very easy access, this is also the busiest/crowded onsen among all.

It was super crowded on Sunday night. Went back next morning. Enjoyed the peaceful morning at the outdoor pool with an amazing waterfall setting. There is also a steam room and jacuzzi. Definitely one of my favourite.

As a foreigner, probably one of my favorite bathhouses in Kinosaki. Centrally located, spacious, with an appealing layout inside. Since it can get really crowded on weekends, a larger bathhouse really does help. The only one that rivals this one in my opinion is the...More

This was by far our favourite bath house in Kinosaki. We went here multiple times. The outdoor pools with the waterfalls made for a most relaxing and beautiful experience.

This popular onsen is deservedly so. Once you get outside from the inside pool, there's a lovely 2-level bath backed by a waterfall and lots of plants. It's clean and well organised and you'll come out feeling SO relaxed.

This onsen is a must while visiting Kinosaki. The indoor and outdoor pools (waterfall) are black stone and very hot. Enjoyed the experience thoroughly, especially the evening drumming sound from the temple next door.

Hello, There is no private outdoor bath in Gosho no yu. Gosho no yu have only public outdoor bath. If you prefer a private bath, I recommend you to stay in Ryokan. In Ryokan, there's a room with a private outdoor bath.
