The story goes that Taiko no Yu was founded by a famous samurai warlord called Taiko who loved going to Arima onsens during the 1600-1700s (?). So the Arima district has a lot of history attached to it. I travelled to Taiko no Yu during...More

It is probably the best day tour onsen facility in Japan. The hot water itself is super, and other things like restaurant is also nice. You can enjoy Arima town before or after here. Strongly recommend visiting here!!

Been to many of such themed park onsen elsewhere and I have to give it just 3 stars. There's no spectacular views to boost, no great meal and can be very crowded. It is also quite expensive for the price. Parking fee is exorbitant. We...More
