There are 7 hot springs which respectively have open air and in-house bath.
I bought a pass (Yumeguricho in Japanese)which is valid for one year at one of the 7 . The pass allows you to ride on a minibus to connect all the hot springs and take a bath at all the spot.
Yen 1,800(about US$16.50) is very reasonable if you think about Yen600-800/one spot i.e. if you have time to visit 2 or 3 spots, that would save you money. We tried 6 out of 7 including one I stayed at.

The actual onsen we went was called Tsurunoyu.The outdoor mixed onsen is so beautiful. The design of the female changing room is very considerate so that female can go into water before reaching the main area with other visitors. Water is so milky that it can cover up very well. Strongly recommend to go in Winter when snowing. We stayed 2 nights as a family. Food is more suitable for locals but quantity is more than enough. Location is very remote but they provide free transportation which is great. If stay longer, there is also a ski field nearby. We actually went Shiga Kogen for several days before Nyuto Onsen. They also sell a pass which allows you to visit other onsens in the Nyuto onsen area with transportation. Suitable for those who like to experience different onsens. Really love to go again, possibly during Autumn. 我們去的實際溫泉被稱為Tsurunoyu。室外混合溫泉是如此美麗。女性更衣室的設計非常周到,因此女性可以在與其他遊客到達主要區域之前進入水中。水是如此乳白色,它可以很好地掩蓋。強烈建議下雪時去冬天。我們作為一個家庭住了2晚。食物更適合當地人,但數量綽綽有餘。位置很偏僻,但他們提供免費的交通,這是偉大的。如果停留更長時間,附近還有一個滑雪場。在Nyuto Onsen之前我們實際上去了志賀高原幾天。他們還出售一張通行證,讓您可以在Nyuto溫泉區參觀其他的交通工具。適合喜歡體驗不同場景的人士。真的很想再去,可能是在秋天。

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 smugness amongst the workers, less customer-friendly compared to the rest. At check-in, the “reception” was unwelcoming.

There’s also tons of day-trippers.

The room we stayed at, though clean, had clear marks of wear and tear (specifically the stained tatami). The most disappointing part are the onsen baths. For men, there are two -three small indoor baths that can probably fit two people. The best one is the mixed-bath or the private baths.

Food was good, at least. Dinner was served in the room, and breakfast in a common area.

Would I go here again to stay? No. It lacks the welcoming atmosphere that we’ve experienced at other Ryokans. Are the baths worth it? No. Is the surrounding area beautiful? Yes. Visit maybe as part of the Onsen bath tour, but keep it at that. If you want superb experience in the area - try Taenoyu instead.

The onsen baths are great and relaxing, of course, but we really enjoyed the food. We stayed in one of the older traditional rooms which had the "irori" in the floor. They skewered and cooked trout over the coals right there in the room - very fun and delicious. We had lots of veggies including eggplant, fern sprouts, and mushrooms. Everything was delicious. We went in August - is was hot and humid in Tokyo, but much cooler and pleasant here.

Nyuto Onsen has a very nice location, and nice baths. Service was definitely lacking though, with lack of attentiveness and an almost smug attitude towards guests. [I speak Japanese, so I could sense that perhaps more than one would in English]. Beware that rooms in the buildings lining the entrance is almost primitive, and cannot be locked. Food is reasonably good, but not as good as many other onsen. I had the feeling this place truly does rest on its laurels, and assumes that visitors will come no matter what because of the baths themselves. Be prepared for day-tripping gawkers, sometimes in tour buses, with the occasional lecherous eye checking for nudity in the baths. The best bath is the unmarked private bath right next to the stream; no tourists there.

Bring your own outdoor slippers if you have larger feet. Oddly, management doesn't have any larger ones.

This must be my favorite Akita experience. I went to the mixed outdoor onsen, where u can feel the snow fall and enjoy the snow scenery, but yet feel warm and cosy in the hot onsen. Very unique and enjoyable experience.

Do note this is very traditional so there's no showers or soap / shampoo.

This was so charming and beautiful. We visited in November when the leaves were red but the weather was warm to be outside comfortably. I wish very much we'd had time to walk in the surrounding forest. The road to the onsen was very narrow and I would have been afraid to drive it by myself but luckily our friends were driving the car. There's a charming waterwheel and such silence and peace in this wonderful forest. The onsen is very simple, it can't have changed much in 100 years.

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

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 about 6 onsen, 1 private and 1 mixed. Everyday, they change the location of the male and female onsen so you could get exposed to different views while enjoying the onsen. I finally realised why people say that onsen "nourishes" your soul - in the cold winter and when you are out in the open bath in the 42 degrees water, you feel so peaceful and relaxed! It was a wonderful experience and i have never tried onsen during winters and this is certainly one of the best.

Upon check-in, they will give you an overview on the onsen and what time is breakfast served etc.... Our server - Haga-san is patient and this ryokan serves one of the best mochi in Japan! The skin is thin and tender, certainly melts in your mouth.

Dinner is served in the traditional kaiseki style and the kiritanpo here is fantastic - famous hot pot served in Akita during autumn/winter. Chicken and rice sticks on a stick with wild vegetables. The ingredients are so fresh and definitely an excellent experience.

Please do book yourself in Taenoyu Hot Spring when you visit Tazawako the next time. I will be sure to be back.
