Kyukamura Stands as a Unique Place in Nyuto - Modern Facility, Regional Food Buffet, and Two Types of Hot Spring Water!

Kyukamura Nyuto Onsenkyo is a unique facility among the seven hot spring inns in Nyuto Area! It is the only inn that can accommodate more than 130 people in rooms both  Japanese and Western Styles.

This location is a branch of Kyukamura, nicknamed “Qkamura” and also called in English, National Resort Villages of Japan. Each facility is located in a national park. This allows them to offer you some unique experiences in  the surrounding environment.

Kyukamura Nyuto Onsenkyo features the following in the facility:

The All-You-Can-Eat Regional Cuisine for Dinner and Breakfast!

The Kyukamura hotel serves foods that reflect the regional originality! The all-you-can-eat meals are available in the common dining area. The “okazu” dishes – a side dish enjoyed in accompaniment with some rice – of traditional cuisine seasonally varies depending on the availability in the local area.

Here is an example of December 22, the day of winter solstice! The delicious kabocha pumpkin was served because it is believed to bring health if you eat it on this day. Also, hatahata fish in a kayaki (“shell-cooked”) hot pot, Iwana (Japanese chars), Yamanoimo nabe soup, some sansai dishes, chestnuts, and many more.

For your drinks, you can choose from a list of local sake such as Hidoyoshi and Ranman, and non-alcoholic drinks are also available.

Try Both Two Types of Hot Spring Waters!

The Kyukamura's onsen comes from two different types of headsprings - it means you can compare two different types of water at one place! There are 2 indoor and 1 outdoor hot spring baths for women and men – separated, not mixed!

The two different types of waters are called Simple Sulfur Spring and Sodium-Hydrogen Carbonate Spring, which are believed to provide positive benefits on chronic dermatitis and gastrointestinal diseases.

(Note: the English terms for each hot springs may not be correct. Also hot spring water may not have the same benefit to everyone.)

Indoor Bath

Outdoor Bath

Even if you are not planing to stay here for a night, you can still enjoy both bathing in hot springs and the buffet dinner! It's only 2,000 Yen! Check the details here.
