Recommended hot springs hotels for healing lower back pains in the Tokai and Kansai region

I had an operation last year in August but my lower back's not well yet so I'd like to know a hot spring hotel with a hot spring cure. Will probably be a girls' trip for two female travelers staying one night.

The quality of the hot spring in this hotel seems terribly good and you can feel your skin being silky smooth. It will ease your fatigue after a long trip.

Kinsen

It is said from long ago that the brown-colored hot spring full of iron called Kinsen in Arima Onsen has good effects on muscle and lower back pains. The hotel has a splendid feel.

Arima Onsen

This Kinsen is said to be good for lower back pains, muscle pains and rheumatism. It's a relatively reasonable hotel and you can have meals in your room.

Kinsen

It's well known from adverts in the Kansai region. The reddish hot water, Kinsen is apparently good for lower back pains. If you stay in the building on the high grounds, you'll get good views.

There's a public bath with a nice view as well as many kinds of open-air baths so you can enjoy the day just by soaking in the hot spring. A turbid Kinsen is said to be good for pain so it's perfect for those with lower back pains.

A salty hot spring. Good for fatigue.

I only often take a one-day trip here but you can feel the difference even when you just go in once for a one-day trip and you can feel the fatigue wearing off. The hot spring source apparently includes sodium chloride and hydrogen carbonate. Your skin will feel smooth.
