We went on an “Onsen-hopping” in the area, and Nyuto Onsen was our last stop out of the three places we stayed. Although we only stayed for one night, it was enough for us to experience the lack of authenticity of this place. There’s also...More

They have few onsens here. If you decided to go to tsurunuyo onsen don't stop at this bus stop as the bus stop is few stops before This. And take note on the opening time as some onsens opens at 9,10,11
