Located in the Tohoku region of Honshu, the area presents beauty throughout the four seasons. There are seven hot spring inns scattered around the western foothills of Mt. Nyuto-zan in Towada Hachimantai National Park, which is known its beautiful Japanese scenery. Nyuto Onsen-kyo Hot Spring Village spreads over a large area, blessed with natural hot spring waters that flow out from deep underneath the virgin beech forest over the valley. Even today, you will find inns that were visited by feudal lords seeking hot-spring cures more than 350 years ago, making it seem as though you have slipped back in time.
