Yumoto Onsen / Nikko / Tokyo & Kanto Area

Yumoto (lit. "origin of hot water") is a small hot spring town in the back of Okunikko ("Inner Nikko") and part of Nikko National Park. The town is attractively located next to Lake Yunoko (lit. "hot water lake") and consists mainly of ryokan with hot spring baths.

North of the town stands Onsenji, a Buddhist temple with a small hot spring bath open to the public. Next to the temple is Yunodaira Marsh, where most of the town's hot water bubbles up from the ground. Some hot water is also bubbling along the northern shore of Lake Yunoko, and a pleasant sulfur odor hangs over the whole town.

Immediately south of Lake Yunoko, the lake's calm waters suddenly plunge down a steep, 70 meter high slope. The spectacular waterfall is called Yudaki (lit. "hot water waterfall"), but the water of neither the lake nor the waterfall are actually warm.

From Yudaki starts the attractive Senjogahara Plateau Nature Trail, leading along Yukawa River (lit. "hot water river") through the woods and across the marshland of the Senjogahara Plateau to Ryuzu Waterfall at the shores of Lake Chuzenji.
Autumn colors around Yumoto Onsen are usually best from early to mid October.

How to get there

Yumoto Onsen is connected with central Nikko by Tobu bus. Buses leave from Tobu Nikko Station (many also serve JR Nikko Station) and are bound for Yumoto Onsen. There are one or two buses per hour. The one way trip from Tobu Nikko Station to Yumoto Onsen takes about 80 minutes, costs around 1650 yen and is covered by the All Nikko Pass. A 2-day pass for unlimited bus rides between Nikko and Yumoto Onsen is available for 3000 yen at Tobu Nikko Station.

Note that during the autumn leaf season in October, traffic between central Nikko and Yumoto Onsen can be very heavy, and buses can incur heavy delays, especially on weekends. If possible, try to visit during the week and not on weekends.
