Arima Onsen

Arima Onsen
The Essential
Nestling at the foot of lush green Mount Rokko, Arima is one of Japan's three oldest spa towns. After years of unbridled tourism, the resort is attempting to regain its former charm thanks to carefully planned modifications to the heart of the old town, the reopening of craft centres, the establishment of a Toy Museum and the renovation of traditional homes. For centuries, the onsen of Arima have been renowned for their mineral-rich waters and healing virtues.
