Where to enjoy hotspring (with snow) ? 2007/10/22 04:25

I would like to visit or stay at a place with hotspring while the area is snowing. Like the picture here:

I will be in toyko in early Dec. Would it be possible to do so if i travel to nikko?

Thank you

Typically any onsen in a snowy zone will look something like that picture as long as you can find a rotemburo (outdoor bath). I recommend Takaragawa Onsen in Gunma although it's a little hard to get to. Anywhere north of Gunma will have snow during most of the winter so Nikko should be ok.

Also, check out Yuzawa in Niigata. It is easily accessible by shinkansen from Tokyo and is the closest place to Tokyo for guaranteed snow. Many of the ski resorts have their own onsen in the snow.
