Description
Goshoboh was founded 800 years ago and is the oldest inn in the spa town of Arima, an exceptional spot with astonishing brick-coloured waters. «Gosho», which means «imperial palace», is an echo of the long, ...More feudal era when the establishment was reserved for the nobility. It has maintained its renown and high quality. The region's excellent Kobe beef is also served here. Less

If you booking does not include dinner, email them to book. I highly recommend having dinner there. Our dinner (Western style) was excellent with top service. And it will save you a trip down the hill and back up again... More
