Taketoritei is regularly cited as one of the best Ryokans in Japan. A Ryokan is a traditional Japanese Inn that features tatami matted rooms and are located mainly in hot springs areas of the country. Taketoritei is located in Arima Onsen, the oldest Onsen (hot springs) town in Japan, founded 1300 years ago and a timeless relaxing place for emperors, nobles and samurais.
The modern Japanese resort host two kinds of hot springs: the Silver one (Radium hot spring) and the Golden one (high temperature, containing high level of iron and salt). Soaking in these baths before savoring Kaiseki (Japanese Haute cuisine) dinner is the quintessential Japanese experience!
