  • A Japanese hotel : Tocen Goshoboh
  • Arima hot spring town
  • Onsenji temple


This plan is not offered in the busy time as new year holidays

Tocen Goshoboh preserves traditional Japanese wooden architecture which is built roughly 100 years ago. There is no elevator and has difference in level on the floor. The architecture reserves the original one as much as possible, there is the squeal of wooden floors. To create a beauty of shading which a great writer Tanizaki Junichiro preferred, the inside is dim during the day. Please enjoy the one and only attraction of Tocen Goshoboh to spend quiet and relaxing time.

The road of hot spring town is slope, good exercise but might be a little hard in a case.

Please follow some instructions to enjoy Onsen. For example, no swimsuits are allowed and avoid bathing right after dining and drinking alcohol for your health.

The hot spring in Tocen Goshoboh has semi-mixed bathing, so men and women can meet at the partition of each bathroom. Please accept this situation.

“ Very knowledgable and sweet tour guide ”

Thank you Ms Toshiko-san for showing us the Kobe/Arima Onsen. She was so sweet and gave my 2 boys a fan as a remembrance. She is very knowledgable on the Kobe history. She even has these big binders that she created on her own. we love the walking area and seeing the Kobe / Arima Onsen. She help us like a mother and my grandma to my kids. She entertain my 2 boys as well. Eventhough we didnt have enough time to see Harbour City, she showed us the upper area of Kobe. We were in a hurry since we dont have enough time but still manage for me to get some goodies from Kobe. Arigatou Gozaimasu Ms Toshiko-san. We would love to see Kobe again.


Thank you so much for your warm review. The time with you and your family was also a big pleasure for me. In your tour, I was very impressed your attitude to show the respect to Japanese culture, and to your kids to teach the manners and behavior. I want to see your beautiful kids again in a near future. Kobe has more attraction such as harborland and Rokko, please come to Japan and Kobe again.
