Osen Falls嫗仙(おうせん)の滝


This waterfall is about ten minutes by car from the Kusatsu hot spring town in Agatsuma County, Gunma Prefecture, and about a further 30 minutes on foot from the parking lot. The water falls 25 meters and the white water flowing over the red rocks is delicate and beautiful, just like the femininity the name implies. There are many shallow places in the river, and visitors can walk near to the basin of the falls to see it up close. Depending on your fitness level you can chose from two roads from the rest area—a steep bath or a bath with a gentle slope that takes some time to walk. Past the waterfall there is a large Katsura Caramel tree of over 300 years old, boasting a height of 35 meters, selected in the 100 Largest Trees in Japan. On the other side is a large Japanese Horse-Chestnut and there are many things to see here.

          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.
