Private Tour - A Healing Journey Filled with History and Culture in Arima

Private Tour - A Healing Journey Filled with History and Culture in Arima

star-5
1
Arima Onsen (hot spring) is famous as the oldest hot spring resort in Japan. The high quality of the spring water still attracts people, and many tourists from Japan and abroad come to spend a relaxing time in the old-fashioned streets. In this tour, you can experience the deeper Arima culture by strolling around the hot spring town. There are two main types of onsen sources in Arima Onsen: the reddish-brown "Kinsen" (Gold hot spring) and the carbonated "Ginsen" (silver hot spring). It is said to be very rare to find two hot springs with completely different ingredients gushing out in the same area. At some of the spots, you can see the source gushing out, touch it, and drink it. We will introduce you to the mechanism of the source, and visit stores that sell Japan's first cider, which developed from carbonated water, and specialty rice crackers, to show you all the charm of Arima Onsen. Join this tour of the highlights of Arima Onsen and experience Japan's hot spring culture!

Kobe City 3-4 Hours Private Tour

Kobe City 3-4 Hours Private Tour

We introduce you to a tour of Kobe, one of Japan's most famous port cities, where you can capture some of the most beautiful scenery! The city of Kobe developed rapidly from a farming village with sprawling fields as the Port of Kobe was opened in the modern era and trade with foreign countries began. The city topography limits the amount of land you can live on due to the proximity of the sea and mountains, and the buildings are lined up along the slopes. Looking out to sea, cruise ships and transport ships come and go, and unique buildings such as the Port Tower and Harbor Land attract the eye in the harbor. Many tourists come to Kobe to enjoy the beautiful scenery. If you look towards the mountains, you will find many Western-style buildings that are deeply influenced by foreign cultures, and walking the streets will make you feel as if you have gone back in time. Why don't you join us for a photo tour that will leave you with memories of your visit to Kobe?
