Kinosaki (城崎町) Hyōgo, Japan.

Finally, we had a break for awhile. And also my advance gift for my birthday. Relax and Enjoy the heat of the summer.

Kinosaki (城崎町Kinosaki-chō) was a town in Kinosaki DistrictHyōgo Prefecture, Japan.

Kinosaki is famous as a resort area, with onsen (Japanese hot springs). In 1913, the writer Shiga Naoya came to Kinosaki and stayed there for three weeks. Kinosaki provided inspiration for his short story, Kinosaki ni te or "In Kinosaki".

There are seven public onsen bath houses in Kinosaki Onsen. Tourists staying in most of the ryokans (Japanese traditional inns) in Kinosaki can receive a free pass to all seven. It is common for tourists staying in Kinosaki Onsen to walk around in yukata, this saves them having to change into their own clothes every time they use an onsen.

A feature is the fountains in the square where mesh bags of eggs can be immersed and boiled while you wait. There are several ashiyu foot baths with running hot spring water where one can sit by the edge of the road and relax while soaking one's feet. A ropeway at the far end of the street transports visitors to the top of Mt Taishi, which has spectacular views of the town and Japan sea coastline.

The Sanin Main Line provides a JR rail connection to Kyoto, and direct trains to Osaka are available via Fukuchiyama. Direct limited express trains take about 2.5 hours from Osaka to Toyooka.

It will be better if you will come here in the winter season. But, the snow here is thick. We are to buy snow tire now. So, that we can drive there.

We are a bit early so, we have to look around the area and we also need to eat lunch as well.

Now, we are check-in the hotel. Morizuya Ryokan is the name of the place we stay. Japanese style room and clean of course.

I can't imagine this is quite a lot for us. Anyway, the price of this place is worth it.

We have time to attend the "Ubon Festival" and wearing Yukata clothes. We watched the fireworks display for summer and it held only weekdays.

What I like about this place. They have family onsen but, it will only start 6:30 pm and will close until 11 pm. Lovely place. Anyway, perhaps I would say this place is nice location center of the streets of shops and restaurant. And we had time to go to the Kinosaki Marine World. I will separate the post for that. But, Of course, I will post here the video for you to see.

This is our first time to go here. Suprisingly huge and more rides. It’s a Combo! in a one Place:  Zoo, Marine and Park, that’s great right.

Tickets

Not that bad for the fees right… as I told you is a COMBO! What we are looking forward was the Pandas. They are so cute and adorable.

But, we are a bit late to have a ticket to up close encounter of the dolphin and sea lion feeding them, Sold out ticket oh that was a separate fee for that special encounter. So, we just look around what else we can see we try the Safari by train because is free. But, seems it will be fun by walking, so we also tried.Map

It was a really huge place one day is not enought, we didn’t even ride the park rides like roller coaster, ferries wheel, etc. But, for us animals are enough for now, learning stage for my little princess to know the animals and see in person than in the tv or books.

We tried the free train for the Safari, but much more fun in walking at least you can stop and take a selfies with them hehehe…

safari

We didn’t see any of the shows, but only the dolphin show.
