Located in the shadow of Mt. Rokko, Arima Onsen is one of the oldest and most famous bathing resorts in Japan. One such reason for its popularity might be its unique dual water supply: so-called “gold springs” are yellowish-brown in colour and rich in iron and salt, while Arima’s “silver springs” get their name from their high concentration of radium and carbonate. Make sure you leave enough time to enjoy the unique health benefits of both.
