  • When I planned my trip to Tohoku, I decided to plan a stay at Nyuto Onsenkyo. As we cannot book Tsurunoyu online, and Taenoyu was full on the date I planned to go there. I decided to book a room at...  more »

  • Great. Didn't expect much for the onsen after coming straight from tsurunoyu but wasn't disappointed at all by the open air onsen which offers different experience from tsurunoyu. It required 50m walking to the open air onsen and the onsen wasn't much less crowded and the water was clear. Experiencing the open air onsen quietly with snow falling was wonderful.
  • Stayed at Ganiba for two nights in winter. Ganiba onsen is a small establishment - small reception lobby, small indoor onsens, with not much room in ryokan to explore. The outdoor onsen is a beauty but a challenge to ladies with semi-exposed changing room and clear waters. The message was unclear on whether ladies can use towels to cover their modesty. In the cold winter, service with a warm heart, and sincere and earnest gestures made the stay cosier than the actual weather outside. Breakfast and dinner was the typical kaiseki (though a notch lower in presentation and quantity, but not quality than some other ryokans). The creamy, oh-so-delicious crab innards are seasonal and served in huge portions, a rarity not to be missed. There is nothing much that is unique to Ganiba onsen to be purchased. The down-sides to the place are (i) poorly heated and maintained indoor onsens with rotting floorwood, (ii) laundromats which are not working, and (iii) my biggest grip, no lunch available. At least snacks could be sold. Thus, for anyone staying here please plan ahead by either bringing food from the convenience store on your way here, or taking the ticketed shuttle bus at Nyuto onsen and go to the other ryokans for lunch.
