Ichinomiya Nukisaki-jinja Shrine一之宮貫前神社
The main hall of Ichinomiya Nukisaki-jinja Shrine, with a history of 1,500 years, became a National Important Cultural Property in 1912. The god believed to have founded Japan, Futsunushinokami, and Himeohkami, guardian deity of sericulture and weaving are enshrined here. Futsunushinokami is famous because his name also appears in the Nihon Shoki, the Chronicle of Japan. There are many highlights to see including the worship hall and tower gate which were registered as national Important Cultural Property in 1976. It is approximately 20 minutes by car from Tomioka Interchange on the Joshinetsu Expressway.

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.
