One of the main highlights of my recent trip was a stay at the Arima Grand. It had the full suite of a resort with lavish interiors, good onsens, stellar dinner service and spacious rooms. Japanese hospitality at its best!

I stayed couple of time in this hotel and this hotel is famous old fashioned in this area. So my impression, the room is feel old but if Onsen "Hot spring" is your first priority. I will recommend you to choose this hotel. Cause they...More
For every trip to Japan there's always one thing I make sure is on my itinerary - a ryokan stay with a much needed soak in the onsen. Arima Onsen is an important destination to onsen aficionados and I was really looking forward to it....More
The arima grand hotel is a perfect family vacatin spot. I've been to other hot spring hotels but this one had huge rooms, great on-sen (hot spring) and a lot of attention to details. The Japanese dinner set was nice but the western style dinner...More

Hello, Arima Onsen is located is middle of Rokko mountain, so it doesn't have direct ferry to go there. There are several way to go Arima Onsen, however ferry is one of idea. Ferry shuttle from Kansa- International Air port goes to Kobe air port, means you need to extra transit by using Port Liner to Sannomiya Station and switch to bus to Arima Onsen.
I would recommend 1 transits "May possible has traffic jam around Kobe area "
1, Kansai International airport to Sannomiya Station "Shuttle Bus"
2, Sannomiya Station- Arima Onsen Eki "Shinki or Hankyu bus"
*Pls check the last bus from Sannomiya Sta. to ArimaOnsen Eki.
Then you would wait Hotel shuttle, which you reserved hotel.
* some hotels does own shuttle bus, but some doesn't. So you may check to hotel about shuttle bus. Arima Grand hotel owns shuttle bus.
If you want comfortable to go Arima, then choose bus. However you want to fix time schedule, then choose ferry
or all train to go.

Fastest and easiest way will be from Kansai Airport -> Kobe Airport -> Sannomiya Station -> Arima Onsen. Instruction step 1: If you are landing at Terminal 2 then take a shuttle bus to Terminal 1, otherwise heading out to the North wing on the 1st Floor at Terminal 1. Look for a high speed boat "Bay Shuttle Ferry" office/booth to purchase a ticket from Kansai Airport to Kobe Airport . Ticket for visitors to Japan have 45% off which is only 1000yen oneway per adult (half of the time and price if you are taking a bus via Osaka, ask to see if the ticket including the Port Liner ticket (like a Monorail here in the US) from Kobe Airport to Sannomiya Station? if not, you can purchase the ticket at the port liner station. No12 bus stop for departure right outside of the building. This shuttle bus will take you to Kansai Aiport Pier departure. Step 2: When the ferry arrived at Kobe Aiport Kaijo Access Terminal Pier, follow the sign to Port Liner. Takes Port Liner to the final stop Sannomiya Station. When you arrived at Sannomiya station, exit out of the building to the left you will see the bus terminal at ground level. Go into the bus ticket to purchase a bus ticket to Airma Onsen. Bus ticket is 700yen one way and express is 770yen without any stops in between. Bus No 4 line is just right outside of the ticket office to Arima Onsen. Step 3. Once you are off the bus at Airma Onsen, you will see a bus stop right across the street and wait there for the hotel shuttle. The hotel shuttle comes around every 15-20mins and will have the hotel name on it. You won't miss it, and hope this information helps and enjoy your trip there.
