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.

Arima Onsen Reviews
関西の随一の名湯である有馬温泉。金泉、銀泉の両方を楽しめる温泉地です。運悪く金泉の出る浴場が行った日が休館日で入れませんでした。 more »Arima Onsen is the premier hot spring in Kansai. It is a hot spring area where you can enjoy both Kinsen and Ginsen. Unfortunately, the day when the bathhouse of Kinsen went out did not enter by the closed day.
4月に初めて訪問しました。温泉街の中心地は食事処やおやつになるようなお菓子や軽食のお店、お土産屋さん、等などがひしめき合っています。数ヶ所に源泉があって湯気が吹き出しているのも大変趣きがあります。温泉街としてはそれほど広くなく、坂もきつくなく、お年寄りや小さいお子さんでもあまり辛くはなさそうですが、人混みは相当なものです。 こちらで食べた揚げたての「かりんとう饅頭」の味が美味しすぎて忘れられません... more »It was my first visit in April. The center of the hot spring town is crushed with sweets and snack shops, souvenir shop, etc. that become a meal place and snack. There is a source in several places and it is very attractive that steam is blowing out. It is not so wide as a hot spring town, the slope is not tight, and the crowd is considerable though the elderly person and a small child seem not to be too spicy. The taste of the freshly fried "karrintou bun" which I ate here is too delicious to be forgotten. I think that it is good to ask the person in the shop because it is important whether it is fried.
