Very nice milky hot spring water. I had lunch there and it was mainly traditional maintain vegetables. I loved the soba and mushroom dishes.
I will definitely want to come back one day during the fall season to watch different colors of leaves.

We took the bus from train station and we asked someone at tourist office in train station to call ahead(in Japanese) to tell them when we would arrive at the bus stop, so that their shuttle bus could meet us at that bus stop at that time. It is a long winding road from the main bus stop to this onsen. But I dont know if they will pick you up for just day use. Perhaps they regularly meet all the buses (?). Their shuttle bus also spends time going around the circuit between all the different onsens (which have different kinds of water to enjoy) and requires a ticket. The tourist office in any JR train station may be helpful to answer your query.
Not sure. You can use a towel to cover for the mixed gender baths. If worried, you might enquire at Yamanoyado, 1Km apart run by Tsuruniyu, which has a private rental outdoor bath with the same onsen water as Tsurunoyu... More
Not sure. You can use a towel to cover for the mixed gender baths. If worried, you might enquire at Yamanoyado, 1Km apart run by Tsuruniyu, which has a private rental outdoor bath with the same onsen water as Tsurunoyu onsen. I also soaked in the mixed gender bath at Kuroyu onsen, the farthest in the Nyuto onsen town. Both have opaque milky water so once in the water, nobody knows but if somebody complains, you may be out.
