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

Fastest and easiest way will be from Kansai Airport -> Kobe Airport -> Sannomiya Station -> Arima Onsen. Instruction step 1: If you are landing at Terminal 2 then take a shuttle bus to Terminal 1, otherwise heading out to the North wing on the 1st Floor at Terminal 1. Look for a high speed boat "Bay Shuttle Ferry" office/booth to purchase a ticket from Kansai Airport to Kobe Airport . Ticket for visitors to Japan have 45% off which is only 1000yen oneway per adult (half of the time and price if you are taking a bus via Osaka, ask to see if the ticket including the Port Liner ticket (like a Monorail here in the US) from Kobe Airport to Sannomiya Station? if not, you can purchase the ticket at the port liner station. No12 bus stop for departure right outside of the building. This shuttle bus will take you to Kansai Aiport Pier departure. Step 2: When the ferry arrived at Kobe Aiport Kaijo Access Terminal Pier, follow the sign to Port Liner. Takes Port Liner to the final stop Sannomiya Station. When you arrived at Sannomiya station, exit out of the building to the left you will see the bus terminal at ground level. Go into the bus ticket to purchase a bus ticket to Airma Onsen. Bus ticket is 700yen one way and express is 770yen without any stops in between. Bus No 4 line is just right outside of the ticket office to Arima Onsen. Step 3. Once you are off the bus at Airma Onsen, you will see a bus stop right across the street and wait there for the hotel shuttle. The hotel shuttle comes around every 15-20mins and will have the hotel name on it. You won't miss it, and hope this information helps and enjoy your trip there.
