Kusatsu Overview

Kusatsu is a small Onsen town located in the north of Gunma.
Set just next to the Joshin-Etsu-Kogen national park, it is surrounded by forest and mountains.

The onsen town is built around the Yubatake, the source of its hot water. The steaming water streams over wooden flats and is pumped to the bath houses, where it is possible to watch Yumomi, the traditional water mixing dance which cools the water to desired temperatures.

The traditional bath houses are located all over the town, as are soba restaurants, man-ju stalls and plenty of omiyage (souvenir) shops.
