Kinosaki Onsen with a Japan Rail Pass
Kinosaki Onsen is a pleasant town, built along a willow-lined river and is one of the most popular onsen destinations of the Kansai Region. Hot springs were discovered here around the 8th century and since then the town has developed into a charmingly old-fashioned onsen town.

To reach Kyoto Station, you can ride the Limited Express Kinosaki or change in Fukuchiyama.

Discover Amanohashidate with a Japan Rail pass
A TRIP TO AMANOHASHIDATE Just 35 minutes from Fukuchiyama by direct train is Amanohashidate, and it is well worth the detour! Listed as one of Japan’s three most scenic views, Amanohashidate is a pine-covered sandbar spanning the mouth of Miyazu Bay. Viewed from the mountains at either end of the bay, it looks like a pathway between heaven and earth, which is the literal meaning of its name.

What to see in Kinosaki Onsen ?

What to see ? 
Kinosaki is well known for its picturesque, tree-lined river that runs through one part of the town. Unlike ryokan in the rest of Japan, in Kinosaki your ryokan will lend you a colorful cotton kimono to wear as you stroll through town.

Onsenji Temple was created to honor the founder of Kinosaki Onsen, hence the temple’s name! You can take a ropeway up the mountain to see the temple, which also offers spectacular views of the town, its river and the Sea of Japan.
