Kinosaki Onsen Ropeway is just a 3 minutes walk from Ryokan Tsutaya. The ropeway will take you up Taishiyama (Mt. Taishi) where you can have a spectacular view of Kinosaki town. If you are afraid of heights, take a leisurely walk to Kinosaki Bungeikan Heritage Museum and enjoy the Japanese arts or take a drive to Kinosaki Marine World and enjoy the aquarium. If you want to experience the Japanese lifestyle, stroll through the streets dressed in yukata (light cotton bathrobe) and take a bath in one of the "onsen" or public hot spring.
