At Kinosaki Onsen, visitors leisurely make their way among the seven public baths wearing wooden clogs and yukata. This practice has its origins in the fact that since long ago bathing guests have been entertained by the whole town based on the concept of the inns being guest rooms, the streets being halls connecting the public baths. When you arrive at the onsen, change into a yukata right away and enjoy the public baths to your heart's content.
