Since its opening in 2002, Hatago has been patronized by many people as a culinary inn in the Arima area.
The inn has been reborn in pursuit of even greater luxury, with a restaurant that focuses on the kappo counter, where Tadamichi Ota’s essential, kyakumae ryori is performed up close to the guests, and a “kinsen(golden spring) guest room open-air bath” in all rooms for privacy and comfort.
Enjoy your premium stay to your heart’s content in Arima Onsen.
Dynamic kyakumae ryori (cooking in front of guests) that stimulates all five senses.
A chef is a first-class cook only when he or she goes in front of the customer, gives a thorough explanation of the dish, and makes the customer happy.
Ota holds this idea to be the essence of cuisine, and “kyakumae ryori” was born from this principle.
The various performances by the chefs who cook across from you will make your trip to Arima even more enjoyable.
Seasonal kaiseki cuisine that brings out the essence of the four seasons in Japan
For our cuisine, season and timing are of utmost importance.
We express the early, seasonal, and remnants of the season in our cuisine, and we use cooking methods that bring out the best of the seasonal ingredients.
The performance of kyakumae ryori is fun, but it can be both tasty and amazing only through a solid base skill of Japanese culinary arts.
We hope you will enjoy our unique cooking courses while savoring the moment.
Kappo counter seating with an abundant sense of presence
For guests to enjoy the kyakumae ryori, the dining area is centered around a kappo counter facing the chef.
With good conversation as well as observation of the ingredients and cooking techniques, we hope you will fully enjoy the chef’s live performance right before your eyes.
We can also adjust the seasoning to your preference.

“Kinsen” hot spring water, one of the “Three Famous Springs of Japan” and “Japan’s Three Great Medicinal Baths,” is used in the open-air baths in each guest room. Among them, we use “Gokuraku-sengen” hot spring water, which contains twice as much salt as seawater, and the way it warms you is truly exceptional.
Arima Onsen is the oldest and most famous hot spring in Japan, with its history going back to the era in “Nihon Shoki (the Chronicles of Japan).” There are two types of springs: “Kinsen,” a muddy spring with high iron content, and “Ginsen,” a silver spring with high carbonic acid content. It contains eight of the nine qualities that are considered to be therapeutic springs, which makes it one of the world’s rarest and finest springs.
Spring quality …Gokuraku-sengen Golden spring, Iron and sodium (High temperature chloride strong saline springs)
Spring water temperature etc. …94°C (201.2°F), originating from 240m below ground
Health benefits…Moisturizing, promotion of blood circulation, healing of knee pain, joint pain, neuralgia, cold, and cuts, and sterilizing effect
