Took my son for a night in a traditional onsen. It was pleasant to unwind here on the start of our two week trip. Lovely small restaurants and a beautiful temple above a lovely market street. Highly recommended

Many people would go to Kin no Yu or Gin no Yu in Arima Onsen. You might find that they were overcrowded and some tourists might not observed the rules of using public onsen. My suggestion is to go to hotels that open their baths...More

Its slightly far from Kobe town by train, it takes around 1 hour to reach but it is really worth to visit. From here you can take arima rokko ropeway to rokkosan where you see the most beutiful autumn view of Kansai area.

金の湯に伺いました。連休でしたが、然程混んでなかったと思いました。湯色は、透明では無く色がついています。金額は¥650で、レンタルタオルなどもありました。有馬駅から歩いて行けます。温泉街で旅館やホテルもあり、食べ歩きも楽しいです。駐車場は、近くの有馬温泉駐車場3時間¥600です。3時間有れば十分です。銀の湯も近くです。温泉内の景色はよくありませんが、お湯は最高ですよ。 I asked at Konoyu. Although it was a continuous holiday, I thought that it was not so crowded. The color of hot water is not transparent, it has color. The price was ¥ 650, there were also rental towels and others. You can walk...More

I went to Arima Onsen and found that I LOVE THIS PLACE. It's calm, peaceful and I can walk around the town by myself. ไปแบบไม่คาดหวังอะไรแต่ประทับใจมาก อากาศดี วันที่ไปคนไม่เยอะมาก เดินเล่นรอบๆ เมืองได้สบาย ได้ชิมน้ำแร่โซดาอร่อยๆ ด้วย

A lovely hill town. There’s narrow streets, Grand and Moderate hotels- at a price. The marvelous Arima Toy Museum is worth the half hour trip from Sannomiya station. We haven’t found a great restaurant there outside the hotels. Good for a day trip and great...More

The gold and silver onsen waters are the highlight of this onsen town. This town is very small and can be covered with a day trip. There are very few foreign tourists here, mostly Japanese tourists in this town.

Hi! Taiko No Yu is the 2400 yen for a day pass onsen. I went there as well and enjoyed it! Consider looking online for package deals with Taiko No Yu as well. :)

I’ve seen people do it, but you’re not supposed to and they have signs at the entry forbidding it. If it’s small enough to put a bandaid on it, then I suggest doing that.
