Kinosaki Onsen Station is served by the Sanin Main Line. The station is the dividing point between the electrified segment of the line up to Kyoto, and the non-electrified segment down to Hōki-Daisen. This is the farthest along the line that any regularly scheduled train from Kyoto will go (except the Hakuto Limited Express, which stops at Tottori Station but avoids the Sanin Line for much of its route). Passengers wishing to continue onward must change trains at this station.
The station is also the departure point of an aerial tramway to the summit of Mount Daishi.
