Sainokawara Park, Kusatsu-machi

4.2
#2 of 178 in Parks in Gunma Prefecture
Take in the geothermal features of Sainokawara Park, a valley boasting several hot springs and a large outdoor bath of naturally warmed water. Locals have long mythologized the mysterious, evocative landscape of the valley, as evidenced by the number of statues and monuments dotting the area. Hike between the main hot springs to see the water bubbling to the surface, breaking out to form warm streams, and flowing down into a cascading waterfall. Take a dip in the main pools, separated by gender and each able to fit 100 bathers. Put Sainokawara Park into our Kusatsu-machi journey planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It's 600 yen, but you should go. The light-up on the way is beautiful. There are not so many open-air baths so far. There were several footbaths along the way, and it was empty. The footbath in the center is always full.

  • Footbaths are scattered around, but they are a little lukewarm. It's a lot of fun to see the hot springs flowing like waterfalls.
