Recommended family-friendly hotels and inns in the Kansai region

I want to visit somewhere with plenty of nature in Kansai over the weekend with my family. Please give me the best accommodations for a family of 5. No meals needed but a hot spring or bath is a must.

Hello. Try staying in Minami Tennoji in Osaka. It's a lot more convenient to stay in the southern part of Osaka if you're going sightseeing. Apa Hotel is within walking distance from Tennoji Station.
