    Accommodations / Hot Spring
    Gunma Agatsuma-gun Kusatsumachi Kusatsu
    A hot spring area counted as one of Japan’s three most famous. With over 100 source springs, the area generates some 32 thousand liters of natural hot spring water every minute, the greatest production volume in Japan. Since ancient times, the area has flourished as a therapeutic spa, and unique, long-standing traditions remain deeply rooted here, such as the custom of “yumomi,” the cooling of extremely hot spring waters by agitating them with thick wooden planks; and “jikan-yu” timed bathing, a practice distinct to Kusatsu which emerged in the late Edo period. The area’s primarily acidic springs are known for their powerful antibacterial properties, and it is even said they will “treat any disease other than love sickness.” The area is dotted with art museums and is also known as an art town.

    "Sekizenkan, the oldest wooden bathhouse in Japan, was built in 1691 and consists of three buildings: the main building, the ""Sanso,"" a registered tangible cultural property, and the ""Kashotei,"" a fusion of tradition and modernity. The view of the main building from the vermilion-lacquered ""Keiun Bridge"" is reminiscent of the Ghibli movie ""Spirited Away. In 2020, the Yakuzen Restaurant ""Yakuzen Ya Koshin"" opened in front of Keiunbashi Bridge."

    Gunma Pref. Agatsumagunkusatsumachi Kusatsu 521-3
    Sainokawara Open-Air Bath is one of Japan’s largest open-air baths nestled within wide open natural splendor. Here you can enjoy all the changes of the seasons from the fresh verdure in early summer, to the changing color of the leaves in autumn, and the snowy landscapes in the winter. And in the evenings, gaze at the night sky full of stars. The source of the hot spring is an ever hot well, almost as hot as magma, from within Kusastu Onsen. Because the water temperature is as high as about 95 degrees the spring water has an anti-inflammatory and sterilizing effect. It is also beneficial for burns and those suffering from nerve pains. There are separate changing rooms for both men and women but no washing facilities.

    This very large outdoor pool in the park is said to be able to accommodate 100 people. I was the only one using it! We stayed in Kusatsu for 3 nights and chose to visit here on the rainy day of our...

    Netsu no Yu in Kusatsu Hot Spring is a sightseeing facility where you can experience “yumomi,” a type of performance that has been passed down since the Edo period. Besides experiencing yumomi by following the lead of the female performers, there are many other daily events you can enjoy, such as the “yumomi dance show.” Particularly popular is the “yumomi-kun show,” which is performed by the “Thespakusatsu Challengers,” a sub-group of the “Thespakusatsu,” a local pro soccer team.

    Came here with our tour group and at first i was wondering why we had to see this but i quickly changed my mind. This show was impressive. The effort that these ladies put into their show is awesome...

    This facility is at the center of the Kusatsu Onsen resort and regulates the temperature of the water as well as acquires samples of the flowers that bloom in the area. The nearly 32,300 liters of water gushing every minute have come to symbolize the resort. You’ll find a walkway and benches set up around the area, perfect for a stroll after a dip in the springs. The area is illuminated at night, creating a totally different atmosphere. In winter, you can enjoy events such as the “Kusatsu Onsen Yubatake Illumination” and the “Yubatake Special Lightup.”

    A public bathhouse situated on the right hand side of the Ikaho Stone Steps which leads up to Ikaho Shrine in Ikaho, Ikaho Town. The brown spring waters drawn up from the source which fill the bathtub are said to be good for backache and other ailments. It’s a great place to stop off for a dip for those visiting Ikaho Shrine or the Stone Steps.

    伊香保温泉名物の石段の横にある共同浴場。 露天風呂なし。小さな内風呂が1つあるだけ。 自分が行ったのは、平日の昼飯時だが、客が数人いた。そのほとんどが地元に住んでいるらしいお年寄り。 湯はうぐいす色。湯には成分の濃さが感じられず。 水道水の加水があるのかも? 私の住む埼玉には、ここより泉質が優れた日帰り温泉が幾つもある。 そういう事を考えると、ここへまた行く事はない。

    A free communal bath near the yubatake (hot water field and spring source) in Kusatsu, Kusatsu Town. The bathhouse itself is managed by the local residents but tourists are also welcome to use it. It is said that Minamoto no Yoritomo discovered the spring where visitors can now soak in the cloudy waters of the Shirahata (white flag) source, named after the flag of the Minamoto clan (Genji).

    "A day trip hot spring bathhouse located a two-minute walk from JR Maebashi Station. The bathhouse' vaunted private natural sodium chloride spring wells up from directly underneath the facility. This spring, also known as the ""Netsu no Yu,"" is adjusted so that the waters are just a little on the lukewarm side. The bathhouse sells sets which include a towel and robe, etc., making it easy to stop by here without needing to bring anything. In addition to an indoor bathing area, the bathhouse's bright, open, and airy outdoor bath has a view of a beautiful courtyard area for bathers to enjoy. Other facilities include a dry sauna and steam bath, as well as a bedrock bath back you can take a relaxing soak in with a reservation made at the front reception desk."

    「泉質がいい」という噂だが、行って実際に入ってみると、それが本当だとわかった。 内湯も外湯も、少々ぬるみがあり、入るとすぐ(これは、体の芯まで温まりそうだな)と思った。 泉質は伊香保、熱海らと同レベルだというが、本当では? また駅から徒歩数分で行けてしまうアクセスの良さもあり、高い評価とした。

    This day-use hot springs bath resort is just a 2-minute walk from the Onogami Onsen Station. Keeping the same quality water of the former Onogami hot springs center, which drew its waters from the Onogami springs flowing from the Agatsuma River banks, this resort has been newly renovated. There is a small garden with the main bath, an outdoor bath, and a private bath in the individual rooms, creating a refined space for relaxation and healing. Containing sodium, calcium ion and mildly alkalescent, Onogami hot springs waters are gentle on the skin and thus called ‘the waters for beautiful women’. The resorts own original gel and lotion products incorporating the source waters are also sold here.

    This bathing facility is located in Tanigawa Onsenkyo Hot Spring Village. The facility is unusual in Japan, because it uses water from three different sources. The hot springs are simple alkaline spring water in the Fudo no Yu bath, calcium sodium sulphate chloride spring water in the Kajika no Yu bath, and simple spring water in the Hotaru no Yu bath. The large, open outdoor bath was built along the river, and visitors can enter the bath from the decking at the back of the building. There are also shops and rest facilities available inside the building.
