Mythical  Hot-spring

A strongly basic ferruginous sodium chloride spring

Arima is the oldest spa area in Japan. According to the Nihonshoki (Chronicles of Japan), Arima-Onsen Hot Spring that is said to have existed since the age of the gods, was discovered when the two divinities (kami in Japanese Shinto) Onamuchi-no- mikoto and Sukunahikona-no-Mikoto saw that three injured crows were cured after they drank from the thermal water. Since this discovery, people have travelled from allover Japan to soak in the so-thought of as holy and miraculous hot-spring that cures any type of illness. Arima has three type of hot-springs, among which the most famous is the “ Kinsen”, or “golden hot-spring”. A part from its soothing warmth ( original temperature 98°C, controlled at 40 °C), and its relaxing golden-clay color, Arima golden hot-spring is a strongly basic ferruginous sodium chloride spring which has far more healing properties.
