Kindaichi Onsen (金田一温泉?) is an onsen in Ninohe, Iwate.

The onsen consists of seven establishments on the banks of the Mabuchigawa River, and was developed from the early Edo period. It was named a National Public Health Spa from the Ministry of the Environment in April 1994.

The Ryokufūsō establishment in Kindaichi was famed throughout Japan for being the home of a zashiki-warashi, but it burned to the ground in a fire on October 4, 2009.
