Yogokorotei Onsen has a beautiful outdoor pool that overlooks a meadow of snow-covered silver birch trees with a small waterfall where the free flowing hot spring water pours in.
After your soak you can take advantage of the free massage chairs in order to reach ultimate zenic relaxation.
They also have a restaurant that serves up tasty Japanese dishes such as donburi and sashimi.
The onsen is on your right-hand side, just before you enter the wooden arch into Moiwa off of Route 66.
