Nyuto Onsen is a collection of rustic, hot spring ryokan in the mountains of eastern Akita Prefecture. Most of them offer mixed bathing. There are eight ryokan of different onsen characters, and Tsuru-no-yu is the most famous with 300 years of history.
You must arrange to have your meals in ryokan as there is nothing nearby. The food was quite good and the area has good hiking trails. For onsen aficionados, a 7-day pass allowing to experience each of the eight hot spring is recommended.

Quite a sanctuary among the hilly woods - Kyukmura is a lovely hotel with onsens, modern facilities and seasonal activities without losing the traditional Japanese spirit and hospitality. Kyukamura has 2 indoor onsens, each linked to an outdoor onsens, a nice waiting lounge area, and a small cafe outside the restaurant (one of two places in Nyuto that serves lunch). The breakfast and dinner buffets are quite a spread, and if you are starting to get wearied by often-seen kaiseki served in ryokans, the diversity offered by the buffet is greatly welcomed. One would feel pampered with onsens which are well maintained and equipped, the waters are at the right temperature; in particular one would enjoy the falling snow while soaking in the outdoor bath surrounded by beech trees. The staff are friendly and patient which they do not speak English. Ladies also get to choose their yukata and winter jackets were available for borrowing for personal outdoor activities in the snowy winter when I was there.

Stayed here in dec 2014. The food was great (tempura megochi was a favorite for us) and the guided tour around the snow filled surrounding was fun too.
