After a short walk up the atmospheric park with hot water springing up and streaming down, you would reach to the bathhouse with probably the largest outdoor bath pool in Japan with emerald green sulfuric water. At night, the light up at the Sainokawara Park...More

Although it was snowing lightly, we have really enjoyed the easy hike. The park entry is free and there is also a free foot bath, so bring along a towel with you. There is also a public onsen, 600 Yen per person.

It's a great place for strolling since mountains surround the area with trees covered in snow at the time of my visit. Footbaths can be found around and there's a hot river too. If mild sulfuric smell puts you off, going here could be uncomfortable....More

Easy outdoor walk, with access to a big outdoor onsen (600 Yen) and free foot onsen. Bring along a towel, if you are visiting to enjoy the onsens.

This is a gem of Kusatsu, only about 10 minutes walk from Yubatake. Free of charge. It is not physically demanding because it is small, but very beautiful with onsen water running artistically around the park. Bring a towel if you want to try foot...More

Be sure to spend at least an hour in this beautiful park. There were many hot water areas and foot baths. Bring your camera you will want it. The leaves are also really pretty right now!

Only a short walk from the central part of Kusatsu onsen street, this park has a natural beauty that took my breath away when I arrived. The stream running down is coming from the onsen, and because of the mineral contents the stream bed was...More

You will see natural hotspring in the area, the park is not big at all, you can walk to quite far by small path but the main area you need just 15 mins to walk around

Passing through the town center of Kusatsu, following a narrow street up towards the hill, you'll find this beautiful nature park. We didn't climb all the way up due to too much snow. I imagine it'd be really beautiful in summer and fall. While you...More
