Minakami Onsen水上温泉

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A hot spring district sprawling along the upper reaches of the Tone River, a river which boasts the largest basin area of any in Japan. One of this district's greatest charms is its magnificent scenery, which commands a view of Mt. Tanigawa, counted as one of Japan's 100 most famous mountains. In addition to fully fledged mountain climbing, the Mt. Tanigawa is a center for river rafting, rock climbing, and other outdoor sports, and attracts many tourists throughout the year. The area's clear sulfate springs and simple springs are characterized by a smooth, velvety feel and are said to aid recovery from fatigue and promote health in addition to helping alleviate nerve pain, rheumatism, and skin diseases.

          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.
