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

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 -...More

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...More

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...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

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...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...More
