- The Nikko Yumote Hot Spring has more than a 1,200 year-old history. It was blessed by the Buddhist monk Kobo Daishi, famous for discovering and blessing hot springs. In the 14th century, Nikko Yumote was an onsen (spa) resort for the rich and famous—nobles and highly placed government officials had private baths here. The water is a mixture of sodium sulfate and hydrogen sulfide and is great for treating arthritis, rheumatism, diabetes, and general fatigue. You can discover for yourself why this area has been popular for over a millennium. Yunoya Ryokan is a modern Japanese style inn.
