Do you know a temple having hot springs?
Hot springs often pertain to religion.
The place I would like to introduce today is a renovated temple, and not an actively working temple.
However, it takes an important role as a community network, which temples realized at a time in the past.

What is superiority of Kurokawa Onsen?
Both the relaxed atmosphere and nature of the spring would be correct answers.
However, you should learn good lessons from this phoenix-like city, which changed from a ghost town just as same as many spa cities in the world, to one of the most popular hot springs in Japan.

Do you know real Arima Onsen?
Arima is counted among Thee Ancient Springs and is near big cities like Osaka and Kobe, and some of you may have been there.
However, this historical spa city is facing depletion of the water; therefore, there are few inns providing real hot springs in terms of water not artificially processed.
