#1 of 215 in Spas in Kinki
Take a dip in one of Japan’s oldest bathhouses, Arima Onsen, a hot spring resort in a scenic mountain setting. Mentioned in documents for the past millennium, the resort offers two public bathhouses and a number of inns that feature baths for non-staying visitors. Explore the small town, check out the hot springs museum, or sample cookies made with mountain spring water. Have a traditional onsen experience and bathe in two types of hot spring waters: the “gold,” which is rich in salt and iron, and the “silver,” which contains radium and carbonate.

  •  I live in Rokko local, sometimes, families in taxi, go on a day trip to Arima Onsen. Lunch + day spas is recommended in the ARIMA Grand Hotel or Koizumi Pavilion. Grand Hotel offers delicious Chinese, Koizumi Pavilion for a nice garden, and multi-course meals will be in a tatami room. It is any good. ARIMA Grand Hotel, basement and roof-top open-air bath, is reasonably broad. If of Koizumi is not so spacious that morning to go hungry now, fall is emotion, is very good. Like many Chinese tourists there are also cheap public baths in Arima Onsen, so go.

  • It is including Iron, carbonic acid and salt. Hot spring water are good for your body and health. Its famous hot spring in japan.
  • The male serving us at the ticket counter was rude. As soon as he knows we don't speak Japanese he showed us his sour face. Don't even say 'thank you' like most of Japanese customer service do, very 'unjapanese', one of the worst customer service by far. The hot spring not very spacious and high season would be very crowded, so best to go low season. The lady section according to my wife is very crowded even in the low season.
  • A really great place to chill out after a long day of hiking in the mountains of Kobe ! The hot springs are very relaxing and I am definitely recommending everyone to go there since it is one of the best onsen in Kansai. There is two type of onsen: the gold one and the silver one. Both of those are usually very crowded so I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea to try out one of those that are in the hotels located around the place.
  • Cozy and comfortable hot spring.
  • Very convenient onsen area, just 30 min bus from Kobe. Some good tourist spots and comfortable paths to walk around the area. The place in general has charged premium on the convenience though... there are many places in Japan which can offer similar experience with lower price (but will be more remote for sure)
