If you're looking for a quieter way to enjoy an onsen, I would first recommend Nyuto Onsen in Akita Prefecture. Among Nyuto Onsen, the Tsurunoyu on this page is especially highly rated by tourists from abroad. Tsurunoyu is an onsen that was used by feudal lords of the Akita clan in the Edo period. The buildings where the samurai of that era stayed are still standing and you can stay there. In winter, you can also enjoy wonderful snowy scenery!

Photos: Snow Dome "Kamakura" in Akita Prefecure

In Japan, when snow falls in winter, children make snow domes and play. The snow dome is called "Kamakura". When I was a kid, I played with my friends in Kamakura. Recently, in Akita Prefecture in the northern part of Honshu Island, many large and small Kamakuras are made in the winter to welcome tourists. Especially in Yokote City in the inland area of Akita Prefecture, the "Yokote Snow Festival" is held in the middle of February every year, where many Kamakura Domes are built. The inside of Kamakura is surprisingly warm. In Kamakura, local children will serve you warm food and drinks. Why don't you make fun memories in Kamakura?
