Tsuta Onsen, located near the entrance of Oiraese gorge, lies surrounded by virgin beech wood. The hot spring is known to be used dating back 1000 years ago, and the inn has become one of the hidden gems of Aomori. The structure was made with beech and Japanese horse chestnut wood, with a comforting atmosphere that reminds people of the Taisho period. The meals include seasonal locally produced ingredients.
Behind the inn, numerous ponds and lakes of various sizes attract people to the great natural beauty that changes each season. Walking trails around the ponds and lakes beginning at Tsuta Onsen are available and easily accessible, allowing visitors to revel in Mother Nature.
