All-You-Can-Eat and Onsen in Nyuto

Finding the right kind of meal could be difficult in Japan, especially when you have a special preference for philosophical or religious reasons. Or, maybe you find the Japanese portion too light or small for you.

Kyukamura Nyuto Onsen-kyo solves everything, offering a buffet with various items for all-you-can-eat!

What makes Kyukamura buffet so special is that they offer items in various cooking styles --from regional cuisine to typical Japanese and western style-- while using locally-grown, freshest ingredients!

Kyukamura offers special deals for an overnight accomodation, starting from 10,700 yen, including two meals both at the buffet. They also offer a special deal for day-trippers: an all-you-can-eat dinner with a dip in Onsen for only 2,000yen.  

Considering the bathing for day-trippers ("higaeri nyuyoku") is 500 yen and until 5p.m., a buffet and onsen for this price is very reasonable! If you are interested, please let the hotel know before you arrive. The buffet is available between 17:15-20:30 p.m. and allows you enter until 19:30 p.m.  

Kyukamura stands inside beautiful beech forest as a part of Towada Hachimantai Quasi-National Park.You would definitely enjoy walking around the hotel.
