Nioh 2 The First Samurai hot spring locations

The Nioh 2 The First Samurai hot spring locations are for those who not only want a hot bath, but for those who also want to heal without going to a shrine. These hot springs are once in in this expansion, as was the case with the first two expansions as well. Bathing in all of them will unlock the “Spa Connoisseur” trophy. Here’s how to find all of the hot springs in the Nioh 2 The First Samurai DLC (and here’s the guide on how to find all of the Kodamas, the Grilled Tang Sweets, Mujina, and brushes).

The first hot spring in The First Samurai is quite easy to find. Go to the shrine near the final boss of the stage.

It’s on a very short path near that shrine. Walk in the direction away from the last boss’ door.

The first hot spring in the level is before the boss fight with the cyclops. Get to this crossroads and go right (not left toward the gate and cyclops) and watch out for the crab that pops up.

Once defeated, summon the elevator but do not press down the button in the center. Instead, go around the button and dash off the edge onto a platform just below.
