Business Proposal

Construction of a resort hotel on approximately 0.23 square kilometers of land near Arima Onsen, one of the three major hot springs in Japan.
Nippon House Kobe has experience in hotel construction and will be in charge of the construction. We will also introduce hotel operators, banks for financing, and offer other support so that even those who have no experience in the hotel business can start hotel management right away.

We propose hotel architecture that increases asset value.

The lodging business is a highly profitable business.
Especially in areas popular among travelers, accommodation facilities are in short supply and stable earnings can be expected. With the passage of new laws regarding lodging in Japan, it has become easier for newcomers to enter the market. In addition, we connect owners with operators and offer business proposals tailored to the area. Even those who do not have operational know-how can start a lodging business with confidence.

What is Arima Town?

Arima Town is centered around Arima Hot Springs, famous throughout Japan as one of the oldest hot spring resorts in the country and a favorite of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (famous Japanese samurai). In Arima Town, there are historic temples and shrines such as Onsenji Temple, Gokurakuji Temple, Nenbutsuji Temple, Yusen Shrine, and Inari Shrine. The sculptures at Onsenji Temple and Zempukuji Temple and paintings at Yusen Shrine are designated as national important cultural properties.

Traditional events such as the "Irihatsu Ceremony" in January and the "Arima Grand Tea Ceremony" in November are also held here. The tourist spots include "Nene Bridge" and "Taiko-no-Yudenkan," which are associated with Taiko-Hideyoshi, "Zuihoji Park," "Kakogataki Park," and "Atagoyama Park," which are known as the three major parks, and the recently opened "Kin no Yu," "Gin no Yu" and "Arima no Kobo," all of which attract many tourists during all four seasons.

Hot Spring Quality

The active fault, the Arima-Takatsuki Tectonic Line, is distributed in this area, and hot spring water gushes out through the highly permeable fault fracture zone as a flow path. Low-temperature hot spring water is gushing from the east-west strike of the fault, and high-temperature water is gushing from the north-south strike of the fault.

Iron-containing chloride springs (akayu) are at first clear but become colored when exposed to air and are called "kinsen", gold spring, while the other clear springs are called "ginsen", silver spring. The composition of ginsen differs slightly depending on the source, but they are broadly classified into hydrogen carbonate springs and natural radium springs. The names "kinsen" and "ginsen" are registered trademarks of the Arima Onsen Ryokan Cooperative Association (Kin-sen: No. 3295652 and No. 4672302, Gin-sen: No. 4672303).

Arima Onsen consists of a mixture of deep hot spring water and radon spring water from the natural water system. The deep hot spring water is of the NaCl-HCO3 type with high concentrations of Li, B, and Cl, and is characterized by its high D/O isotope ratio (δD-δ18O) and He isotope ratio (3He/4He). Groundwater in southwestern Japan with these characteristics is called "Arima-type (-hydrothermal, -saline, -deep water).

It has been pointed out that the origin of Arima-type hydrothermal fluids, including Arima Onsen, may be water that was incorporated into the rocks of the Philippine Sea Plate under the seafloor, subducted from the Nankai Trough as a slab and transported deep underground, and due to underground pressure, and the water from the rocks is directly gushed to the surface.
