About hot spring

You can enjoy the highly effective gold and silver baths, sauna, water bath, and open-air bath.

In the Pillow Book written by Sei Shonagon in the Heian period (794-1185), there is a sentence that says the hot springs are Nanakuri no Yu (Sakakibara Onsen), Arima no Yu, and Tamatsukuri no Yu. Since ancient times, Arima’s hot spring has been popular as one of the three oldest springs in Japan, one of the three most famous springs, and even the Ozeki (highest rank) in the west of the East-West Onsen Ranking System. It is rare for a hot spring to have been visited by so many famous historical figures, from the emperor to Taikoh Hideyoshi and Chiang Kai-shek, making it a truly historic hot spring among hot springs.
In the old days, there was a very strict code of manners for bathing, and there is a record that those who did not follow the code were chased away by the bath girls. Touji is purification, and Arima Onsen is proof that it is a hot spring given to us by God. At the entrance of “Kin-no-yu,” a municipal hot spring facility operated by the Kobe Municipal Government, there remains an old stone monument that reads “Japan’s first sacred spring.
Since ancient times, Arima Onsen has been one of the most famous hot springs in Japan. A hot spring resort town that evokes a sense of history. The sound of geta (wooden clogs) of visitors can be heard from the narrow cobblestone stairs and winding alleys. This is an extraordinary hot-spring cure, and a stroll in a yukata (Japanese bathrobe) will refresh you perfectly.
