    My children went skiing at Mt. Rokko. After dropping them there, I drove to Arima town. It is only a 20 - 25 mins ride. Arima town is a very nice small town. I tried both Kin No Yu and Gin No Yu...

    This is a city-managed day trip bathing facility in the Arima Onsen area, famous as a place loved by chancellor Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

At the Tansan Sengen Koen park just a five-minute walk away, there is a place where one can drink carbonated spring water.

    There was just one pool, a sauna and a pressure shower. The pool had silver coloured water. It was quite nice and the water was bubbling up at one end of the pool. There were far fewer people in this...

    A visit to an onsen or offuro (bath without the natural hot springs) is a quintessential experience in Japan. Despite my very limited stay in Japan, I made time to visit, and I was not disappointed...

    神戸に行った際に寄りました。ベイエリアにあり暗くなってはからは明かりがキレイです。温泉であること、立地を考えると1,000円を超えると思っていた価格もそんなことなく、温泉を満喫すれば妥当な価格とも思いました。 施設内・浴場もキレイで良かったです。駐車場も一見コインパーキングのように見えますが、入力利用であれば5時間無料です。

Last entry is at 12 a.m. The waters of the spa's natural simple alkaline hot spring are said to treat sensitivity to cold and chronic digestive diseases, as well as beautifying the skin. The waters of the spa's high-concentration carbonated spring are gentle on the heart yet result in bathers achieving a state of hypoxia similar to that after exercising, promoting blood circulation. Bathers can enjoy a variety of baths, including a white-water bath, cold bath, jacuzzi, and more. The spa also offers a unique sauna service."

    We came primarily for the 9.5ph Onsen water but it was not as smooth as expected. The Onsen itself was rather small compared with the large modern ones that are located in cities like Utsunomiya. The...
