Nyuto Onsen is a well-known onsen town in Akita prefecture, with a rich history of 300 years, that one of the ryokans here was dated back to the Edo period. As Nyuto Onsen is located within the Towada-Hachimantai National Park, onsen visitors who soak in the outdoor onsen are able to enjoy an amazing view of the nature.
Tohoku is home to dozens of hot springs for serious travellers. Some might even refer them as the mother of all Onsen baths. Hot springs are nature’s gift to the region and can be found in rustic rural areas, so much so that they embody the culture of the place.
The area where Iwate, Miyagi, and Yamagata meet is full of such hot springs, some even dating back hundreds of years. Make sure you soak up the surreal experience with unobstructed views of breathtaking sceneries, where you can be one with Mother Nature.
