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.

  • About a 15-minute walk from the center of Kusatsu Onsen, there was a river of hot springs in a large park. The park smells of sulfur and has a good atmosphere. There were several foot bath spots, but the rest of the river was also a warm river. There was only a riverside in the west, and everyone was piled up the stone in some places.

  • It takes about five minutes to walk from the hot spring field. It's ten minutes to walk slowly looking at souvenirs. You can enjoy a leisurely foot bath in the river. There is also a shrine, so you can also visit.
