Where to Find All Hot Springs in Nioh 2

Nioh 2 Hot Springs

There are 27 Hot Springs in Nioh 2. Resting at a Hot Spring or Spa during main missions or sub-missions restores all your HP and gives temporary healing over time effect. These can only be used once unless you pray at a shrine, which also respawns all enemies in the area.

It’s generally a good idea to use a Spa before difficult sections or boss fights. Once you’ve found all Hot Springs, you’ll unlock the “Spa Lover” trophy.

Most of the Hot Springs are usually found in secret rooms behind Nurikabe disguised as walls with glowing red eyes. To get past these yokai walls, you can either fight the Nurikabe or try to guess the color of the gesture i.e. red, yellow, blue.

The color of the gesture is random on every playthrough. If you’re unable to guess the correct color in two tries, you’ll have to fight the Nurikabe. Guessing the correct color will let you pass without a fight.
