- The inn traditional inn with sunken fireplaces in the downstairs public rooms, exposed beams in the ceiling, twisting corridors, and a small garden was built over 300 years ago by monk Ninsei to honor a local deity and is located in the popular hot spring resort of Arima. The guestrooms are Japanese-style with private facilities. The segregated indoor hot spring baths are in fragrant cedar tubs. Outside are naturalistic open-air pools. The water is classified as carbonated sodium chloride and is rich in iron, as the reddish residue on your bath towel will attest.
