Yamamotoya is the oldest Ryokan in the Kinosaki Spa Resort. Boasting 350 years of history, and a major renovation in 2007, this is a classic Ryokan that maintains both traditional, and acceptance of modern ways. It is about 8 minutes on foot from JR Kinosaki Onsen Station, and within walking distance of all 7 of the bathhouses that make Kinosaki famous across Japan. Rooms are all Japanese style. The onsite bar serves beer from the inns micro brewery, and is a great place to cool off after a session in the hot spring.
