Nikko Yumoto Onsen is a ski area located on the east slopes of Mt Shirane in the western Oku Nikko region of Nikko city, close to the border with Gunma Prefecture. Marunuma Kogen in Gunma Prefecture is on the western slopes of the same mountain. Nikko Yumoto Onsen is about 30km from Nikko city centre and the famous Toshogu shrine.

The northern shores of the Lake Chuzenji (Chuzenjiko) are about 9km from Yumoto Onsen. During the winter months the section of Route 120 that connects Nikko with Katashina village in Gunma Prefecture is closed.

Tochigi Prefecture is located to the north of Tokyo and is perhaps best known for the Nikko and the famous Toshogu Shrine, Lake Chuzenji, Kegon Falls, the Oku Nikko area and also the mountainous region in the north that includes Mt Takahara and Mt Nasu.
