"a nice surprise" Kusatsu by xaver

Kusatsu Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 67 photos

When my friend proposed to me to visit Kusatsu and explained that it was one of the best places to enjoy hot spring I did not even have an idea about what hot spring was, go figure if I could know a popular Japanese hot spring resort.

As soon as I entered this town, I felt in love with it as it is very particular with all the water vapour all around the centre of the town and the smell of sulphur.

This is also the only town where I had the chance to stay in a very typical Japanese inn, eating and drinking and sleeping on Tatami.

    Yugama Lake doesn't even look real.

    Your photos really do capture that peculiar effect of the water vapour coming out of the ground. I'm sure there must be a more efficient way to cool the water than stirring it with large wooden paddles, but I guess efficiency isn't their first priority.

    Great Japanese experience. I enjoyed the onsen but the water, oyu, is so hot!
