    Nigata Pref. Minamiuonumagunyuzawamachi Mitsumata 686
    This hot spring inn, which also allows day trip bathing, is located 800 meters up in the mountains. The hot springs, which were discovered seven centuries ago by the monk Shirakumo, are famous for being one of the country's few hot springs said to relieve eye ailments. The secluded single-building inn was known to have been a favorite hot spring of the warlord Uesugi Kenshin. Bathers enjoying the elegant stone open-air baths can hear the sound of the wind moving through the trees and of water running in the clear streams. The baths also offer a great view of the starry night sky. The chloride spring waters are said to provide relief for cataracts, fundus hemorrhage, dry eye, and other eye ailments. The slightly lukewarm baths, fed entirely with spring water straight from the source, make them a good choice for a nice long bath. Bathers can also wash the eyes with the hot spring water just from sprue.

    This hot spring bathhouse, whose baths are free-flowing spring water “kakenagashi” style from a source spring, is said to have been patronized by Yasunari Kawabata, author of the famous novel “Snow Country.” The public bathhouse, located in the hot spring district beyond the west entrance of Echigo-Yuzawa Station and the Yuzawa Kogen Ski Resort, has long been known as a health spa. Locals call it “Yamanbocha.” The waters of its hypotonic alkaline high temperature spring are on the hotter side and are said to leave the skin soft and silky smooth. As bathers often get dizzy from the heat just as they feel like they’ve fully warmed up, customers are encouraged to take a short break when they notice sweat running down their face.

The district encompasses two free open air baths, however, they are not open in winter; from spring through fall, many visitors come here to enjoy a hot spring bath while taking in the area's gorgeous seasonal natural beauty.

The waters of the district's sulfur springs are said to treat such ailments as nerve pain, rheumatism, women's diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, skin diseases, and hemorrhoids. In ancient times, the area's waters were used exclusively for curative purposes and their quality is superb. Situated along deep inside the ravine carved out by the Otagiri River, the Kawara no Yu bath is known for its spectacular scenery, while the open and airy Ogon no Yu commands a view of Mt. Myoko; between these two open air baths, the Kawara no Yu is mixed gender.
