Tomihiro Art Museum and Kiryu Textile Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Kanayama Castle Remains and Raiden Shrine will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Ota side-trips: Kiryu (Fujuzawano Okakuzakura, Okawa Art Museum, &more), Tatebayashi (Former Nigyo Kemban Association Office, Tsuruuda River, &more) and Midori (Konaka Falls, Kesakake Bridge, &more).

To see where to stay, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Ota trip site.

Manila, Philippines to Ota is an approximately 11.5- hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Manila to Ota due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Manila in April, expect Ota to be cooler, temps between 19°C and 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Minakami-machi.

Perched beneath the foothills of several soaring mountains, the town of Minakami-machi provides a picturesque stepping stone from which to explore the dramatic surrounding scenery.
Bring the kids along to Takumi no Sato and Tambara Lavender Park. Escape the urban bustle at Tanigawadaketenjindaira Ski Area and Fukiwarenotaki Falls. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Minakami-machi: Kawaba-mura (Kabuto Falls & Kojyu Hotspring), Gunma Astronomical Observatory (in Takayama-mura) and Numata (Tenkeiji Temple, Spa Resort Yuniiku, &more). Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Oze National Park. On the 9th (Tue), spend a relaxing day on the river with I LOVE OUTDOORS JAPAN. There's still lots to do: indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at some of the top local onsens, tour the pleasant surroundings at Tsukiyono Hotaru no Sato Promenade, delve into the lush surroundings at Okutone Suigennomori, and hit the slopes at Fujiwara Snow&Spa Resort.

Famous for its Daruma dolls, Takasaki serves as a great stopover town during a trip through Japan.
Kids will enjoy Konnyaku Park and Gunma Safari Park. Museum-lovers will appreciate Kannamachi Dinosaurs Center and Fuji Fureaikan. Venture out of the city with trips to Shibukawa (Ikaho Shrine, Ikaho Stone Steps, &more), Maebashi (Genkeiji Temple, Ninomiya Akagi Shrine, &more) and Annaka (Sakamoto Shuku & Akima Bairin). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Haruna Shrine, explore the world behind art at Takasaki City Gallery, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Haruna, and steep yourself in history at Tomioka Silk Mill.

Plan my day in Takasaki using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
