And other hidden beautifying onsens of Akita Prefecture

Nyuto Onsen

When it comes to hot springs in Tohoku, one cannot miss out the famous Nyuto Onsen (hot spring). Located in the secluded mountainous area of Akita Prefecture, Nyuto Onsen may lack the accessibility and the vibrancy of onsen streets but it is definitely the epitome of nature and relaxation. With 7 onsen ryokans in the area, it is worth experiencing each and every one as they are characterized by their unique water qualities and therapeutic properties. Enjoy the best onsen moments as if you have stepped into the past that abounds with timeless Japanese charm!

Taenoyu Onsen

Renowned for its two baths of different colors, Kin-no-yu (golden hot spring) and Gin-no-yu (silver hot spring), Taenoyu is an onsen ryokan that is widely popular among ladies. It boasts a distinctive brown-white wooden exterior with an elegant interior designed in modern Japanese style. Rejuvenate your mind and body with the magnificent scenery of gushing waterfall from the stream nearby.

Tsurunoyu Onsen

As the oldest onsen ryokan in the area, Tsurunoyu Onsen still retains the traditional “Honjin” architecture of the main mansion and evokes the ancient atmosphere of old Edo times. Besides soaking up the rejuvenating properties of spring waters, you may enjoy unrivalled snow views at the open-air bath. No wonder many people flock here every winter!

Ganiba Onsen

Traverse through the forests and streams to reach the most elusive Ganiba onsen, a mixed-gender open-air hot spring that is named after the crabs residing in the vicinity. (Don’t worry as there are no crabs in the onsen!) Dip in the emerald green waters and take in the breathtaking landscapes which change according to the seasons.
