April 5, 2015 - Energy recovery at Kinosaki Onsen

Taking convenient ltd. express "KONOTORI" from Osaka Station,
my target was Kinosaki Onsen.
After few days of tight sightseeing schedule I decided,
to explore and take rest at pleasant onsen town.

Drinking hot spring water
One of many restaurants serving crab meat
Jizo-yu Hot Spring Bath

Most bath's and ryokan line up along pleasant canal area created by Otani River.

At the western end of town visitors will reach mountain slope.
Rope-way operates between Onsenji Temple and mountain summit.

2 hours before return train, I have decided to take long refreshing bath at Satono-yu.
