    Gunma Pref. Agatsumaguntsumagoimura Kambara 1053
    This beautiful scenery was created from the lava that flowed out and spread when Mt. Asama had its giant eruption in 1783. The sight of the giant lava boulders scattered around makes for an impressive sight. In spring the lovely alpine plants bloom in profusion, while visitors can enjoy the changing leaves in the fall. The contrast with the deep black earth is indeed a sight to behold.

    どこを見ても溶岩に囲われていて、自然の凄さや強さを感じることができる場所でした。 景色も良く30分ほど歩きました。 一度は訪れるべき、おすすめの場所です。 I drove there at late February. There is nice view and I felt the power of nature. I walked for about 30 minutes there...

    Gunma Pref. Agatsumagunkusatsumachi Kusatsu Shirane National Forest Field
    "A 40-minute ride on the JR Bus bound for the Mt. Kusatsu-Shrine volcano leaving from JR Naganohara-Kusatsuguchi Station. This area, situated right next to the ""Sesshogawara"" bus stop, is one of the extinct calderas at the southeastern foot of Mt. Kusatsu-Shirane. A part of Joshin'etsu-kogen National Park, the area continuously emits vapors containing poisonous hydrogen sulfide, and a nose-stinging sulfur smell hangs in the air. In conflict with the desolate scenery, the area is the starting point of the Kusatsu-Shirane Nature Trail which connects with Kusatsu Onsen and along which walkers can enjoy the sight of patches of beautiful Rhododendrons and azaleas."

    Minakami Town, Tone-gun, Gunma Prefecture
    Located in the farther in from the Doaiguchi stop on the Tanigawadake aerial tram, this is one of the peaks of the Tanigawadake range. It is one of Japan's three great rock formations, and is a rock climbing haven. The steep rock walls are awesome and overwhelming, and the view is enough to take one's breath away. The gorge can be visited by tram, chair lift, or bus so that one can enjoy a little mountain field trip with even young children. Here one can take in all the bountiful expanse of nature with its colorful foliage in the autumn, and the fresh green against the lingering snow in mid-summer. From November through May the gorge is closed.

    Gunma Pref. Agatsumagunnakanojoumachi Shima
    These eight giant and small kettles can be seen at the Shima River that flows through Nakanojo Town, Agazuma County, Gunma Prefecture. Where whirlpools have formed, stones and sand eroding the bedrock of the riverbed have produced the giant’s kettles over tens of thousands of years. The largest is eight meters across and 3.2 meters deep and has been designated a prefectural natural monument.

Gunma Areas

Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
