Yumoto Onsen

Yumoto Onsen
The Essential
Yumoto Onsen stretches along the north shore of Lake Yunoko, facing Mt Shirane. The spa facilities include ryokan and public bathhouses. On the northern outskirts of the village, a boardwalk mounted on stilts provides access to the Buddhist temple, Onsen-ji, (and its bath) while taking you over the Yunodaira Marsh area. Nine hot water springs bubble up from the ground in spectacular fashion. In winter, heavy snowfalls transform the site into a ski resort.
