About Tocen Goshoboh

Tocen Goshoboh is a traditional inn located in the sanctuary spa resort village of Arima Onsen, which is a thermal and spiritual retreat dating back to the mythical age of Shinto gods, and one of the three oldest hot-springs areas in Japan.
Since its establishment in 1191, and for 16 generations, Goshoboh has been long-loved by many Shogun and men of letters, and is considered the most historical hot-spring Ryokan in Japan.
The property was bestowed the honoring label “Gosho”, which means “Imperial palace”, after the visit of the Samurai Lord “Ashikaga Yoshimitsu”, who ruled Japan between 1368-1394. The lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi has also left fingerprints in the history of Goshoboh by moving the wooden building few feet next to the Taki River, where the inn stands now silently.
Goshoboh continued to receive the elite of the era, including the very known writer of “In the praise of Shadows”, Tanizaki Junichiro (1886-1965), the historical novelist and poet Yoshikawa Eiji (1892 – 1962), and many others who became Goshoboh’s patrons, and left some work expressing their experience at the inn.
