Sainokawara Park is a 10-minute leisure stroll from the town centre. There are many shops along the way. The famous open air onsen, Sainokawara Rotenburo, is located at the end of the park. The autumn foliage is very beautiful there, with different shades of red, orange, yellow, magenta brown and green. It's definitely worth a visit while in Kusatsu.

The weather made it very conducive for a walk to this park where you can visit and view and Autumn Foliage - we were a little too early but managed to catch a glimpse. The walk was a refreshing one and in the middle of the park, there is a foot batch and you can soak your feet in there.... More

This place is a dream to walk around at night, with the lanterns scattered here and there, a small dimly lit shrine in the middle and the sounds of running water and steam coming up from the hot water running through the park. Truly a unique experience. During the day it is still quite impressive, but I would recommend definitely... More

A short walk from Yubatake, this is a nice park where one can take a short hike up the hill, enjoy the sight, a small shrine and a small visitor center. But the main attraction is of course the openair bath. We bought a 3 bath package which include Gozan and otake bath, which saves you a few hundred yens.... More

This is such a beautiful area with all the hotspring water running through the forest next to the walking path. It was raining and we loved it.

Most of the people who come through the park are on their way to the open air bath, but it is worth strolling through even if you don't want to try the bath. The stream that runs through the park is actually hot water and there is a free foot bath you can try. The park contains a monument to... More

This is the biggest outdoor hot spring I've been to. Make sure you check it out. Absolutely a must try!

A beautiful hot-spring park which leads you to the Sainokawara Rotenburo (outside hot spring bath). At any time of year, the awesome springs are complimented by the natural surroundings. Being so close to both Kusatsu town and the Sainokawara Rotenburo, it's an ideal destination for a lovely day out in the countryside.

interesting landscape with hot spring water pool that you can walk in with bare feet. There's even a waterfall of hot water. You can also bathe in the open air pool.

Great autumn views from the baths. Unlike other onsen baths, there are no showers or soap or shampoo available because you do not need to clean yourself up before entering the bath. And also unlike most baths, they do not switch the bathing areas between the genders (you'll see why in a sec). For men, the moment you walk in... More
