Kusatsu Onsen is a therapeutic bath that has been popular since ancient times, as believed to be found by Prince Yamatotakeru-no-mikoto in Japanese mythology. It is said that this hot spring can cure any disease except love sickness. Its unique way of bathing called Jikan-yu is what makes this onsen resort well known: 100% pure hot spring water, just sourced, is experienced at one of the highest acid levels and temperatures in Japan.
Close to “Yubatake” the facility symbolizing Kusatsu Onsen in the center of town, you can partake in strolling and foot bathing at “Yukemuri-tei” around the clock. Kusatsu Onsen is one of three of the most famous hot springs in Japan.
