This is a huge onsen complex and you could easily spend a few hours here. Unless your really into history, I'd skip going to the public bath houses and just come here as they have everything that the other onsens have and more. When we...More

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

If you're intending to make a quick trip to have an onsen experience, this would be a good option. Most onsen(s) in the arima area would require a pre-booking. Either you're staying overnight or reserving the onsen together with lunch / dinner. Taiko-no-Yu would accept...More
