Famous for its Daruma dolls, Takasaki serves as a great stopover town during a trip through Japan.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Wed): get to know the fascinating history of Ikaho Stone Steps, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Haruna, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Haruna Shrine. Here are some ideas for day two: indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at some of the top local onsens, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mizusawaji, then contemplate the long history of Tomioka Silk Mill, then examine the collection at Konnyaku Park, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Takasakibyakue Daikannon.

Tokyo to Takasaki is an approximately 2-hour car ride. Traveling from Tokyo in March, Takasaki is little chillier at night with lows of 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Thu) so you can drive to Kusatsu-machi.
