Kinosaki & Yukata
Although certainly not required to enjoy Kinosaki, wearing a yukata on your visit adds a great deal of pleasure and culture to the experience of hot springs, ryokan, street markets, and enjoying the local cuisine, such as fresh crab and the famous Tajima beef (the stock cattle of Kobe beef). Kinosaki is a very yukata-friendly town and we invite you to experience this part of traditional Japan on your visit with us.
Where can I get a yukata?The most common way to get a yukata is at the ryokan you are staying at.
Your room should already have several yukata stored and available for use both inside and outside the ryokan.
Simply select a yukata you like and put it on! Some ryokans may also offer a larger selection of yukata to pick from or rent.
If you aren’t staying at a ryokan then direct rental might be an option.
Kahoru Beauty Parlor in Kinosaki offers rental of men’s and women’s yukata. For an additional fee, assistance in wearing the yukata can be provided. If you visit the hot springs you will be taking your yukata on and off quite a bit, so instruction will also be provided on how to put it back on yourself. Please contact Kahoru Beauty Parlor beforehand to arrange your rental:
