Okunikko Yumoto Onsen (奥日光湯元温泉)

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A quiet hot spring district surrounded by lakes and forest in the heart of the Senjogahara area. Serving as the retreat of Nikko, the district sprawls along the north shore of Yunoko Lake, the source of the Yukawa River, which itself drains into Lake Chuzenji. The area's simple hydrogen sulfide sulfur springs are renowned for their superb skin beautifying powers; their waters emerge emerald green but turn a milky white when they come in contact with the air. The springs are ancient and are said to have been discovered 1,200 years ago by Shodo Shonin, founder of the Nikko Rinno-ji temple. The Anyo no Yu footbath, located in the north part of the district, is frequented by area mountain climbers and hikers seeking to sooth their tired feet (facility free; closed in winter). The area produces an abundant volume of piping hot water which is used not only by local inns and bathhouses but which is also piped to Chuzenji Onsen and Kotoku Onsen.

          Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi’s capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
