What you'll do
This is my most favorite trekking course in Kansai area. Crossing over Rokko Mountain range to Arima hotspring is very dynamic and exciting way, because normally people go to Arima by bus or train(sometimes rope-way). You begin from south part of Rokko Mt and start climbing to the north with setonai-sea in backside, and then passing by highest point, walk down to the other part of the mountain, where scenic Hotspring town of Arima is located. If weather is clear you will see panorama view of Osaka town and sea from the top. Approaching Arima by your own foot makes you touched for sure. Many of my friends and guests are so impressed with this route actually, who went Arima by bus or train before. Rokko Mt is very huge with many local trekking course without any english sign, though I well know about this mountain area and how to enjoy it. Arima hotspring is one of the three oldest hotspring in Japan, which already exist at 631 known as the emperor stayed for 3 months on that time. I have been there for plenty of time, with my family, friends, guest because its scenic atmosphere is very attractive and its spiring quality is very special. More detail HP:jet-jin.com

Almost 20 years I've been big mountain lover since junior highschool mountaineering club. 5 years of Mt.FUJI guide and 4 years of Trekking Guide. Backpacker and Round the world journey consist of my basement. Uncountable experience of meeting kindness of the local people and help have drove my desire of paying back in the future. Consulting and guiding host are my big pleasure. This is kind of my lifework. Japan has many beautiful mountain with deep forest and rich nature. Hiking is one of the best way to enjoy it for sure. I hope to share my expernce and make your staying much fruitful.
