Observe and try rich, age-old practices at Netsunoyu. Centered around an ancient onsen, which produces hot spring water at a temperature too high to bathe in, the people here would cool the water by stirring it with large paddles in a ritualistic song and dance routine. Here, you'll get to witness and take part in the practice, picking up a paddle and having a go yourself. Consider arriving early, as this activity is popular with tourists, so you can expect to queue to get in.

  • It is a fun show that the Yumomomi girls charm in accordance with Kusatsu bushi. There seems to be a show of the hot water boy by the local soccer player several times a month. In the middle of the show, you will receive a certificate of award for the free hot water experience, and you will receive a prize when you collect the stamp. It is a push-up facility where you can easily enjoy the hot spring culture of Kusatsu.

  • I went to get a free ticket at the hotel. It was more familiar and fun than the seat. After dinner, I was able to get my stomach done with a laugh of rakugo. I give a lecture every night.
