Located in Hyogo Prefecture, Kobe has prospered as an international trading port. This means it has been influenced by many exotic foreign cultures over the years. It has long been known for its unique multicultural streets. If you find this kind of western style to your taste, you should come to Motomachi and the Kobe Kitano Museum to see the old foreign style houses. However, Kobe is most famous for Kobe beef. Almost everyone who comes to Kobe has to try the best steak in the world. Kobe also has beautiful scenic spots like Mount Rokkō and the Arima Onsen. Prosperous since ancient times, it exudes antique Japanese atmosphere and is a popular tourist city.
Located in Arimacho in the north district of Kobe, Hyogo, Arima Hot Spring is a relatively ancient hot spring in the Kansai area. It is famous for being one of the best hot springs in Japan, with a history dating back thousands of years.

Coupled with convenient transport links and a tranquil environment, it proves to be a popular place amongst tourists.

It is also part of Setonaikai National Park.
