Maruyamaso, stands along the banks of the Maruyama River
commanding the perfect location for relaxation.

A place for the whole family to unwind & enjoy together.

It goes without saying, we welcome guests in the hopes that each family member may be able to relax and enjoy a memorable trip. Unlike larger ryokan and hotels that have an array of features, our smaller 6 room lodging is run by a husband and wife creating a more personal atmosphere that allows us to give special attention to each guest.
Also, we have tried to eliminate some inconveniences for guests with limited mobility by installing handrails, slopes and elevators.

Magnificent Views! River view from every room.

Maruyamaso is located along the Maruyama River, about a 5 minute drive from JR Kinosaki Onsen Station. All of our rooms naturally have a view of the river thanks to the superb location. You can also enjoy views of the impressive Maruyama River from the yard and lobby, as well as the baths. The night views from the baths as you soak in the hot waters are also quite lovely.
The mountain skyline gently spreads across the skyline changing its appearance through the seasons and creating a vivid panoramic view.

5 minutes by car from Kinosaki Onsen, but only 1 minute to the beach.

Kehi beach is a popular summer destination that's 1 minute by car and 10 minutes by foot. This is a wide shallow beach that is great to take children to. After returning in high spirits and slightly sun kissed, feel free to use the showers and washing machines, no charge for guests.


Tsuiyama Fishing Harbor across the way.
