Kinosaki Onsen has long been known and its hot spring is famous for healing sores and wounds. Ogiya’s history dates back to the Taisho period (early 1900) and is known to have free-flowing hot springs which you seldom see in the Kinosaki Region. Free-flowing hot spring retains all the nutrients because the water comes directly from underground. We only take up to 5 bookings per day and make sure every guest receives the best Japanese service to feel welcome.
In a Japanese traditional onsen ryokan inn, there is an Okami who is responsible for the waiting and looking after of guests, also the Okami acts as a chief service manager and is a female. Where most of ryokan inns have chiefs, here at Ogiya, our Okami prepares meals as well. We buy our fresh ingredients from local farmers and use organic ingredients as much as we can.
Our onsen is a free-flowing hot spring where all the water comes directly from underground and is 100% natural. Only 3 onsen inns use this natural water in the Kinosaki area.
