Kinosaki is located on the Sea of Japan coast in Hyogo Prefecture, in the Kansai Region of Japan.
This popular hot spring resort area surrounded by beautiful natural scenery, making it the perfect place to take a break and relax. There are many public hot spring baths to choose from, and the seafood (especially the crab) in Kinosaki is famous.
Railway connections to Osaka and Kyoto are available along the San'in Main line. Technically, Kinosaki is no longer an independent town, as it was legally merged along with other towns into the larger Toyooka City in 2005.
