ReviewOne of the many day use onsen in Kinosaki. I chose this one because the tourist information said it had the best rotenburo. The wide shallow bath is pushed up against the forested hillside. The abundant plants and greenery also help make this a very beautiful bath.

ReviewThe only sento in the area and one that is still barely around. This is a piece of living history that should be experienced. Located in the middle of Toyooka city, locals can travel just down the street to Kinosaki Onsen or one of the many other day onsen / supersento type places with natural springs in the vicinity. The bathing area has a simple kakari-yu basin, a single shower and one large bath. The washing areas only have spigots—no showers. This is a classic ofuroya. The entire building has seen many years of use and it’s extra beautiful for it. There are a few missing tiles in the bath and the wooden floor of the chaining room creaks and moans when you walk across it. Kyogoku-yu is like a beautiful old temple far in the mountains. Please take the time to go here before it closes.

ReviewSupersento / day onsen located right near the Takeno beach. Great after a day at the beach. The water is good quality. Great views of the beach and ocean. During the summer beach season expect it to be busy. I went here after hiking to the most northern part of Hyogo and then taking a swim in the ocean. It was perfect.

Review:Part of a Michi no Eki local products store and restaurant. Small, but perfect. Decent spring that is noticeable on the skin. Beautiful use of rocks in the small but comfy sento. Got to take a bath with the snow falling around me here and loved it.
