Kinosaki Onsen (城崎温泉) is located in northern Hyogo Prefecture on the coast of the Sea of Japan. This pleasant town, built along a willow-lined river, is one of the top onsen destinations of the Kansai Region.
Hot springs were discovered in Kinosaki around the 8th century and since then the town has developed into a charmingly old-fashioned onsen town. In the evenings guests of the local ryokan stroll about town in yukata and geta (wooden clogs), visiting the numerous public baths and nostalgic game arcades (Japan Guide, 2015).
Snow crabs are especially popular in this town and you can pick up some pamphlets about them from the train station. The crabs are from Tsuiyama Harbor and Shibayama Harbor and are usually caught from early November till around mid-March.
Definitely go here for the best Japan hotspring experience!
