More about Gekkoen Yugetsusanso

More about Gekkoen Yugetsusanso

Gekkoen Yugetsusanso is a purely Japanese hotel, featuring a wooden structure with hot springs baths fed straight from the source. There is a natural river flowing between the lobby building and lodge, and the rooms are on the other side of the Gekko Bridge, of which the rich atmosphere permeates deep into the buildings. The Gekkoen Korokan is located in the perfect location, with each guestroom offering vast, picturesque views of Ochibayama as well as spectacular scenery viewable from throughout the hotel, including the lobby and baths. The hotel offers so many hot springs baths that you can enjoy trying out the many different varieties, and experience Arima’s hot spring water at the source to your hearts content!
The outdoor baths "Yufuku no Yu" and "Tamahoko no Yu" along the Takigawa River are free flowing onsen (hot spring) baths that get their names from the God of Children enshrined in Tosen Temple.
*Please note that this hotel, which is a 3-story wooden building, does not have any elevators. Stays for guests in wheelchairs or with baby carriages are very difficult. Please consider our partner hotel, Gokkoen Korokan, which has been awarded a Silver Star certification for being an “elderly guest-friendly” hotel.

    Hot Springs
    The springs at this ryokan feature reddish water from the ryokan's own spring source, a rarity even in Arima Onsen.
    The spring water type is slightly radiated with sodium and chloride elements.
    The waters at Arima Onsen are thought to have a variety of positive health effects, especially in relieving nerve pain, muscle pain, joint pain, cuts, burns, chronic skin issues and more.
    Baths with 100% naturally flowing water from the source are the riverside open-air baths.

    Sister Ryokan "Korokan"
    The two ryokan are connected so guests can go back and forth on foot.
    Feel free to use the baths and visit the shop at Korokan.

    Pickup Service
    Pickup via minibus is available from Arimaonsen Station and from bus stops in Arima.
    Contact the ryokan by phone after arriving (8:00-19:00).
    Tel.: 078-904-1737

    Location
    Located slightly away from the center of Arima, offering one of the best views in the area.
    It is about 15 minutes on foot from the ryokan to the nearest train station.

    Charges are required for bookings for children. Please check the rates on the details page.

    You can also enjoy the hot springs baths in Gekkoen Korakan!
    Guests with bookings of the dinner included plan must arrive at the hotel and check in by 18:00. Guests arriving later may not be served dinner, or their bookings may be canceled in which case a cancelation fee may be incurred.

    性价比还不错的一家温泉酒店,只是房间感觉有一点点旧,衣橱里会有淡淡的霉味。服务中上,前台有英语很灵的服务员,沟通无障碍。食物味道不错,帮忙服务餐食和铺床的老奶奶给人感觉很温暖。我们住在游月山庄,可以到胧月馆的公共风吕里去泡澡,不过个人还是比较喜欢游月山庄里的露天温泉。不知道是不是因为只住一晚,所以被安排在厨房隔壁的房间里,小小的有一点不爽。
