There are lots of accommodation facilities in “Arima Onsen”, but there are things with lunch and hotel hot spring set as a set in day-trip plan!
There are differences depending on the hotel and meal content, but the approximate adults are 8000 yen / person.
If you enjoy hot springs more easily without reservation, it may be better to use public hot springs! !
There are three hot springs in Arima Onsen, “Kin no yu”, “Gin no yu” and “Taiko no yu”.
“KIn no yu” is famous for golden (brown) hot water containing a lot of iron, hot water temperature is slightly higher.In addition, “Gin no yu” is colorless transparent water.
Both are becoming old-fashioned public baths in the Kansai, enjoyed among the common people since ancient times, making it narrow and creating a feeling of history.
Next to “Kin no Yu” there is a free footbath facility, and you can warm the bottom of the knee with the Arima hot spring.When using footbath, it is good to take a towel or a handkerchie wiping your feet!
“Taiko no yu” has amusement facilities for hot springs where you can enjoy meals in open-air baths, gold water, silver water. The price is 2,500 yen / person for adults.

Another way of enjoying “Arima Onsen” is a walk while shopping in hot-spring town and taking a take-out meal!Also, there are some historic shrines in Arima Onsen Street, we promise to be able to fully enjoy the day!
There is a well-balanced balance between the historic old spa town and the new shops, croquette and local beer etc in the famous “carbonated crackers”, “Arima carbonated water”, “hot spring manjyu” … etc
