We stayed at the Taenoyu Onsen which is just a 5 mins walk from Nyuto Onsen and this is the best onsen i have ever gone to!!! the ride from Tokyo was a 4 hour ride via bullet train but it was all worth it! It's a small ryokan but very personalised in terms of the service - there are... More

I came to Nyuto Onsen with the intention of 'onsen-hopping'. Nyuto Onsen is made up of 7 onsens in the region. I bought an 'onsen-hopping passport' for 1550 yen which gave me access to all 7 onsens. The passport was valid for one year but I only had the afternoon and the next morning to visit all 7. The passport... More

This onsen and the surrounding village, scenery, and buildings are utterly gorgeous. Come here to get a quiet taste of Japanese tradition, and the luxury of one of their best hot springs. It's especially nice in the winter - sitting in the while water as snow flakes fall down is amazing.

This was an awesome trip. I had prior to this spent two nights in Tazawako (see my review for Rose Park Hotel), and then before that 2 nights in Kakunodate. In Nyuto, I spent two nights in Tsurunoyu Onsen Ryokan (of which I also submitted a review). This review will focus on the hiking that I did around the area.... More

The room was booked for us by a good friend and from all accounts we were lucky to have accommodation in the older section. It was a beautiful traditional room, with an area in the floor where our dinner was cooked before our eyes. This was my husbands first Olsen experience, and my first mixed Olsen experience. As the previous... More

My husband and I did a day trip to Ganiba Onsen, specifically to the mixed gender outdoor facilities. Although we were body conscious, we put all of that aside and built up the courage to be naked outdoors with strangers. It was stunning with snow around the onsen, and we found the entire experience to be liberating, relaxing, and traditional.... More

I spent two days with my wife in this area and tried five onsens during our stay. I highly recommend you buy a 7 day pass, which costs JPY1,500, allowing you to visit each of the eight onsen once. Each of them is is unique. Some is of luxury style, while some of the is primitive but traditional. Most of... More
