  • Bertz came to Japan at the invitation of the government in The Meiji Era and served as a samurai doctor for the Imperial Family while teaching at the University of Tokyo.  His achievements in the development of Japanese medicine for a long time were greatly credited to him as the father of modern Japanese medicine. In the Meiji era, he visited Kusatsu and praised kusatsu's unique bathing method, spring quality, and the wonderful environment, and was active in the development of Kusatsu. In the exhibition room, kusatsu onsen is introduced to the world as the world's first-class hot spring resort, and the museum exhibits materials that tell the history of Dr. Bertz, a German doctor who is known as the benefactor of Kusatsu, and his relationship with Kusatsu Onsen.

  • It is said that he was a samurai doctor of the Imperial Household while teaching at the University of Tokyo in the Meiji era, and is called the father of modern Japanese medicine. It is said that the wife is a Japanese, and the relation with Kusatsu hot spring is introduced in the book "Diary of Bertz" though it is the first time to know. The exhibition room is not large, but there were other exhibitions that reminded me of those days. There were also portraits and photographs of his wife.
