Mt. Rokko and Arima Hot Spring
Mt. Rokko, 930m is included in a region of the Seto Inland Sea National Park. The azaleas and the hydrangeas beautifully bloom in the spring. The maple leaves turn to bright red and yellow in the autumn. Going up on a cable car, you will enjoy a panoramic view of the Osaka Bay from the observatory. You can go down on a ropeway to Arima Hot Spring on the northern slope of Mt. Rokko. It’s the oldest natural hot spring resorts in Japan. You can take a bath at the public bathhouses and some Japanese inns. Kinsen is brown water of iron chloride and Ginsen is clear water of carbonate. You will feel old Japanese atmosphere by strolling on the alleys in the town.
