The easiest option to get to the hotel is to take the shuttle bus...More
This place has very few Americans. And here's why: Arima is an onsen town that many Japanese locals love. It is small humble town that has nothing glitzy. But oh, the "golden" mineral water and the exquisite service of everyone there in the town and...More
While we are on a family holiday we couldn't resist the temptation to meet with some suppliers as well. They invited us to Kobe and we stayed at the aroma grand hotel with their families and ours. It was an amazing experience for us and...More

Hello, Arima Onsen is located is middle of Rokko mountain, so it doesn't have direct ferry to go there. There are several way to go Arima Onsen, however ferry is one of idea. Ferry shuttle from Kansa- International Air port goes to Kobe air port, means you need to extra transit by using Port Liner to Sannomiya Station and switch to bus to Arima Onsen.
I would recommend 1 transits "May possible has traffic jam around Kobe area "
1, Kansai International airport to Sannomiya Station "Shuttle Bus"
2, Sannomiya Station- Arima Onsen Eki "Shinki or Hankyu bus"
*Pls check the last bus from Sannomiya Sta. to ArimaOnsen Eki.
Then you would wait Hotel shuttle, which you reserved hotel.
* some hotels does own shuttle bus, but some doesn't. So you may check to hotel about shuttle bus. Arima Grand hotel owns shuttle bus.
If you want comfortable to go Arima, then choose bus. However you want to fix time schedule, then choose ferry
or all train to go.
