Me and a few friends went on a day hike up to the top of Mount Rokko and then down into Arima Onsen. The hike was tough, but the Kin no Yu really fixed all the tired and achy muscles. The little town is also beautiful and has some neat shops and places to eat.

It was our first onsen visit and we really enjoyed it - the place was much nicer, cleaner and friendlier than a Sento we visited recently! They are also tattoo friendly if that concerns you.

There is a normal Onsen I think but I still feel comfortable and related! Maybe I am foreign and walked harder! It's a great experience and good memory this year!

This is first onsen that we visited, we had visited the sento when we are in Nara and kyoto Last year. But this experience is of a different quantum. Partly because it's fed by natural hot spring that is "gold" in colour (sulphuric) i presume. But the experience is a truly Japanese experience that we would definitely return for another... More

The Kansai Thru Pass allows access to Arima Onsen, one of the region's premier onsen towns. We went to the Kin no Yu for a short dip rather than shelling out on the admittedly more expensive ryokans and hotels there by staying overnight. Kin no Yu is a short way from the train station (closer than the Gin no Yu)... More

We were a bit disappointed, since it's just like a normal Japanese onsen, and a bit on the small side. We didn't see any milk sold there, though. Nice for a short soak. The onsen was very hot, and we couldn't stay in there for too long.
