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.

We went here in the Autumn and enjoyed walking in the gorgeous woods after a nice, hot soak in the onsen 温泉 ♨️ (hot springs).
My husband and I both have colourful, full sleeve tattoos and there was no problem with us enjoying the onsen.
It is a big faculty with a large bathhouse attached for shampooing and washing up. Female side has three indoor tubs of various temp and one smaller outdoor tub.
Massage chairs, milk, and delicious soft serve ice cream awaits your visit!

A rare onsen resort in the area with Western rooms as well as Japanese futon style. The gender separate onsen baths are great, the ladies get two indoor and one outdoor, with views of the tree tops. Excellent value- we paid AUD$160 per person, per night including buffet breakfast and buffet dinner. The buffets are a highlight as they feature traditional as well as regional Japanese fare! Best reached by hiring a car (driving in the area is super easy as there's hardly any traffic), it's a manageable drive to all the attractions in the area like Tazawako lake, Dakigaeri Gorge. The staff speak very little English but are helpful anyway. Loved the Japanese style room with tatami mats and futons, with mountain views. Be aware there is no bathroom (only toilet and sink) in the rooms - showering / washing is done in the communal onsen.

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.
