車で行きました。駐車場は1時間300円です。有馬温泉の中は結構道も狭かったです。Uターンするのも場所をさがさないといけなかったです。すぐ近くに神戸電鉄の有馬温泉駅があるので電車でもいいかも。どちらでも、神戸や大阪から行きやすいところだと思います。 有馬温泉は金泉といって、赤褐色色のお湯と、ラジウムが成分の透明な色の銀泉の2種類のお湯で有名です。ホテルに泊まるのもいいけど、日帰りで温泉を楽しむこともできます。ホテルの日帰り温泉パックみたいなのもありますが、金の湯、銀の湯、という、普通のお風呂屋さんみたいなのもあり、手軽に温泉が楽しめます。金の湯も銀の湯も普通に洗い場と浴槽があるだけ、ですが。金の湯は650円、銀の湯は550円、両方のセット券は850円です。金の湯はほんとに温泉街の真ん中にあり、便利です。銀の湯はすこし坂を上ったところにあります。 時間的に1つしか無理だったので、金の湯に行きました。 お湯が赤褐色なので、タオルに色がつきますが、シャワーをちゃんとあびたら大丈夫でした。朝8時オープン、だったので9時前にいきましたが、地元のおばちゃんらしき人たちもいて、ゆっくりはいれました。上がるころ、中学生らしき集団がはいってきました。ゆっくりはいるなら、朝のうちがいいかもしれませんね。リンスインシャンプー、ボディソープはあります。ドライヤーも心配だったのでもっていきましたが、6つありました。 タオルも売ってはいるようですが、みなさん、マイタオル持参でしたよ。 金の湯、お湯はほんとによかったです。上がった直後はほんとに体が真っ赤でした。ロッカーもちゃんと鍵がついたのがあります。 Arima Onsen is located in northern part of Kobe, and you can go there by train or car easily. You can enjoy onsen, hot spring, at hotels here, but you can also enjoy on a day trip. Kin-no-yu, is...More

Arima located on the north side of "Mount Rokko", Kobe is on the South side, is one of the oldest Spa villages in Japan. Even in ancient times Samurai came to Arima to cure their battle injuries.

If you stay overnight in a "ryokan", a Japanese styled hotel, there might be a private Onsen bath room. The price depends on hotel, but in general it should be very expensive in Arima. If you can afford, it would be an... More

Sorry, I went on a day trip. Tried just the public onsens. There are several hotels and ryokans around. There might be but I don't know.
