Oyasukyo Daifunto

Reviewed By Danielle M - Washington DC, District of Columbia

I have never seen anything quite like this; a steaming hot river cutting through a gorge, complete with steam vents shooting out of the cracks. Oyasukyo has a short and lovely hike down into the gorge. There are many onsens to soak in afterwards. I highly recommend Doroyu Onsen (however it is a little bit out of the way).
The gorge is beautiful in spring and summer but I recommend visiting in autumn as the gorge has many colorful trees. Do not recommend visiting in winter: the hiking path is closed due to heaps of snow. However, the onsen are still open.
There is a bus that takes you directly there from the Yuzawa bus station.

Kawarage Oyutaki Falls

Reviewed By SwinkRa

We stopped here after going to oyasukyo, and it was so beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice, it looks otherworldly. There are a lot of steps, but not unreasonable. There is a waterfall all the way at the bottom. Definitely visit if you enjoy things in nature. We spent about 2 hours here.

Michi-no-Eki Ogachi Komachino Sato

Reviewed By 智子鈴2015

地元のお野菜を探しに行きました。お土産ものとレストランの建物、農産物を売っている建物がわかれています。大きな道の駅でしたが、農産物の種類は多くありませんでした、また高めでした。比内地鶏のアイスクリームを購入しました。滑らかさがもう少しほしいところ。

曇りであったためもあり、ゾクゾクするような霊気を感じました。硫黄の匂いもある中、恐山と同じ雰囲気です。複数で行った方が良いです。

Ryozeki Sake Brewery

Reviewed By DanL917 - Tokyo, Japan

Hard to visit sake Breweries if you are not part of a guided tour. I am not into sake but I hit this area as it was near my hotel in Yuzawa and I was finished traveling for the day. The lady at the front summoned her daughter or niece who was in junior high, and she spoke a bit of English and showed me around. The building for the brewery itself is original, but modernized on the inside with steel tanks to hold the sake. There are four kura buildings housed inside which are still used to store sake in various stages. The exterior of the brewery is very handsome and well maintained as the pics show. Inside there is a first class showroom replete with red carpet, where you can sample 5-6 bottles of sake. I wasn't aware of the quality of sake at this place until I saw their tourist brochure. Their sake has been winning international awards every year since 2008 or so, and one sake won double Gold as best sake at a competition in SF, California in 2014. Their sake is also sold a lot at gift shops and road stops in the Yuzawa area. Anyways the girl showing me around said many tour groups visit the place during the day. I was there at 4:30 PM so the place was pretty quiet.
I don't drink sake but their sake seemed pretty good. Didn't clear out your nostrils like some do. Yuzawa in Akita is pretty out of the way, below the more famous Yokote City (Ha!), so don't expect a lot of English support when you visit this place unless you are part of a JTB or Yokoso tour group.

Yuzawa Municipal Inaniwa Castle

山の上に天守閣型の資料館があり、展望がよいです。
中には黄金の茶室もあり、見どころの多い資料館。
山はなかなか険しいですが、山の上まではスロープカー(乗車券と資料館の入館料がセット)で上がれるので、楽ちんです。

稲庭でうどんを食べた後、川原毛大湯滝へ向かう途中、この橋を渡りました。まあ美しいけど、この辺りの他の橋とくらべてどうってことはないです。一応、駐車場があります。橋の片側には地獄のエンマ様、反対側にはお地蔵様がいました。ここが地獄の入り口という意味だそうです。

秋の宮温泉郷を流れる川のそばに小屋があり、スコップなどが置いてあるので、それを使って河原の石を掘り、マイ温泉を作ることができます。お湯はとても熱いので、川の水を引き込まないといけませんが、適温にするのがかなり難しいです。今までの人が作った温泉をそのまま利用することもできます。

Onoda Ayujo Ayunoya

Reviewed By SolLuna25

川沿いにぽつんと建っているお店です。
友人と一緒に地元の方に美味しいからと連れて行って頂きました。
鮎の養殖業を営まれており、新鮮な鮎が頂けます。
特にお刺身が頂けるのは貴重だと思います。
注文したのは小町鮎定食2700円。食べきれないほどの鮎料理三昧にびっくり。
刺身、マリネ、塩焼き、甘露煮、空揚げ、10匹以上の鮎が乗っていました。
これはもうお酒を頂くしかありません。鮎酒を頂きます。鮎も日本酒との相性ばっちりです。
うるかはちびちびと日本酒と頂くと苦味が癖になりそうですが、最初は苦手でした。
地元の山菜も美味しく、とても静かな田園の中、ゆっくりと食事を楽しみ事が出来ました。
鮎は食べきれずにお持ち帰りさせて頂きました。
あ~美味しかった~。また行きたいと思えるお店です。

国道108号沿いを中心として約10軒の宿が存在している秋田県内最古の温泉であり、秘湯の宿の鷹の湯温泉は、川沿いの露天風呂がなんともいえない解放感がある。川原の湯という川を掘ると出てくる温泉もある。
