Kusatsu Onsen 草津温泉

Yubatake Kusatsu (草津) is located at the southeastern foot of Mount Shirane in the northwestern part of Gumma Prefecture. It is one of the most popular hot springs resorts in Japan and regularly achieves high rankings in Japan-wide surveys. There are about 100 Onsen in Kusatsu with a total amount of about 34000 liters water per minute pouring out of the ground.

The hot spring became well known about 120 years ago when Dr. Erwin von Baelz, a doctor of medicine from Germany, found its acidic waters to be very effective for skin conditions and neuralgia. Others said that it helped cure the following ailments: arthralgia, stiff shoulders, paralysis, hardenings, bruises, sprains, chronic indigestion, hemorrhoids, chills, arteriosclerosis, burns, chronic gynecological disorders. The hot spring town is built around one of the major sources known as Yu-batake (hot water garden), which is illuminated at night.

The water from the Onsen is used not only for bathing but also for the heating of the primary and secondary schools, the municipal welfare center, the streets during winter and many households, as well as for the municipal swimming pool.

Access:
Naganohara-Kusatsuguchi Station is 1 hour 10 minutes from Ueno Station by JR's new limited express Kusatsu.
