The Eccentric Family - Arima Onsen

In the second season of The Eccentric Family we see Yasaburo visiting Arima Onsen.

This road is located between Arima Onsen Station and the main parts of the town. The red bridge in the background is called Nene-bashi.

Yasaburo is looking at...

Kin no Yu.

Kin no Yu is one of the public onsen bath houses in Arima. The insides match what's shown in the anime as well, but no pictures allowed there.

After going to Kin no Yu, Yasaburo goes to the café on the second floor here. In the background on the top right you can see the roof of Zenpuku-ji Temple.

Unfortunately the café was closed when I visited, so I couldn't get pictures inside.

Though the café windows Yasaburo spots...

Benten and other Friday Fellows.

Benten and the others is at the souvenir shop on the right. On the left is the bus terminal where you'll arrive if you take a bus instead of the train to get here.

Yasaburo follows Benten and the others to this ice cream shop.

Reverse view. If you look closely at the picture here you can spot a cardboard cutout inside the shop on the left.

It was cardboard cutouts of Rinka and Fuuka Arima, characters from Onsen Musume.

On the table there were Onsen Musume beef curry rice for sale.

Before everybody heads to their hotel.

Yasaburo still tailing them. This corner of the wall is slightly different than what's shown in the anime.

The stairs here are a bit further away from the corner of the wall in real life.

Before running over to the hotel.

This place is called Point Vacation Arima in real life. I've marked a path from the ice cream shop to this place in the map below.

At the local tourist information office I saw more Onsen Musume items.

Another cardboard cutout of Fuuka Arima.

And a signed Onsen Musume poster.

I also saw this Naruto and Boruto decorated bus here.
