Hot spring

Arima Onsen:One of Japan's oldest hot spring.

One of the things to be enjoyed at a hot spring ryokan, is of course, the hot spring bath.
No matter what culture you are from or what language you speak, everyone can enjoy a large public bath.
Hot springs are good for your health and help your mind and body relax.
Arima Onsen is one of Japan's oldest hot springs.
In Japan's oldest document 'Nihon-Shoki' it is mentioned a record of the Emperor staying at Arima Onsen in 631 AD.
There are 9 known properties that hot springs are known for, and the hot springs here have 7 of them, truly a rare feat.
The "Golden Spring" of Arima Onsen has a high concentration of iron and sodium.
The spring water is clear, but it turns reddish brown as it contacts the air. At Hyoe Koyokaku, you can enjoy this "Golden Spring" at all three large public baths.
