No, swimsuits are generally forbidden at onsen, including Benifuji no Yu.

Onsen does not allow you to bathe in swimwears.

This place above allows you to wear swimwear. There are a few exceptions like this.

You might not want to anyway. My daughters wore undies into the private onsen at Hakone and then the undies stunk like rotten eggs and had to be thrown away. That was sulfur, though of course not all onsen water smells

You get to differentiate sulfur and rotten eggs after a while. As an onsen addict, I've grown fond of sulfuric smell (and I don't like rotten eggs).

Why throw away? Wash it once and it'll go away.

Going to an onsen or sento with swimsuits is like eating with your hands at a plush French restaurant with dirty clothes.

I can imagine that sulphur smell hanging around through several washes- it would come out eventually though. Since you can't wear anything in most hot springs it doesn't usually matter though ;)

I was apprehensive at first too about nudity in an onsen yet I'm glad I did it and I'm now quite the onsen fan.
The nudity is nothing to worry about and the onsen experience is really what is required for a trip to Japan to be complete, IMO.
