Spring water quality at Arima Onsen

  • Arima Onsen is the oldest hot spring in Japan.
    In other words, it is a natural hot spring that gushes forth with the blessings of the earth even before hu-man beings had the technology to dig for hot springs.
    Even with advanced technology in modern times, Arima Onsen still offers spring water filled with natural blessings (therapeutic ingredients in the spring water).
    Arima Onsen gets its spring water from a shallow depth of up to 300 meters.
    The Ministry of the Environment has specified nine ingredients which exist in "medical hot springs."(The nine ingredients are simple hot springs, carbon dioxide springs, hydrogen carbonate springs, chloride springs, sulfate springs, ferruginous springs, sulfur springs, acidic springs, and natural radium springs).
    Arima Onsen includes seven of these ingredients, except for sulfur springs and acidic springs.
    This mixture of many different ingredients makes Arima Onsen one of the rarest hot springs in the world.
