Welcome on our forums. Yamada Onsen area is a fantastic place to soak, and offers great opportunities year around.
I myself visited the onsen in Fukeikan in the middle of winter, when the waterfall was almost completely frozen! A great bath, definitively. Have you had the opportunity to stop in the nearby ryokan, like Taki no Yu
and Goshiki no Yu
? They also offer great baths in natural surroundings...
Thanks for sharing your trip's details with us! Hope to read from you soon again.
