Visit Onsenji Temple to learn about local Buddhist traditions and then contemplate life from the comfort of a hot spring tub. The main activity of this tour is to trace the 16 Chinese characters used to spell out an ancient Buddhist sutra. Those unfamiliar with the language will still enjoy taking part, as the activity gives you a chance to relax and take in this idyllic and beautifully preserved area. Afterward, head to the temple's on-site bath, which draws water from the same source that supplies Nikko Yumoto Hot Spring Resort.
