This historic open-air bath house is said to have been discovered 1,400 years ago after a representative of Emperor Jomei healed the injured leg of a stork, hence the bath’s name—“The Stork Bath.” The Yumepa bath ticket allows purchasers to visit bathe as much as they like at seven different hot spring facilities, including Konoyu, whose waters are said to bring happiness. Located on a mountain ridge, bathers can enjoy a quiet outdoor bath enshrouded by verdant trees. The Kinosaki Motoyu hot spring is located nearby; here visitors can enjoy a foot bath or make boiled eggs in the hot waters.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
