A secluded spot with more than ten types of hot springs
The seven spas around the base of Mount Nyuto in Towada-Hachimantai National Park make up what is called the "Nyuto Hot-Springs Village." Each has its own hot springs, whose waters are of diverse quality. A leisurely soak at one of these spas surrounded by virgin forests of beech soothes both body and soul. Another pleasure lies in sampling the local fare featuring wild vegetables and mushrooms.
