Located in Japan’s historic Arima Onsen hot-spring village, renowned for its unique thermal properties, Tocen Goshoboh has been a favorite destination of many Shogun and men of letters for over 800 years. Designated a “gosho” (Imperial palace) after the visit of Lord Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, the inn is one of the most prestigious hot-spring yados in Japan. The traditional wooden building is infused with the tastes of the legendary novelist Tanizaki Junichiro, who was also a patron, showing a Japanese sense of aesthetics and beauty with a poetic balance of East and West, old and new. The cuisine has been known for its signature Goshoboh Yamaga style since the earliest days of its history.
