Netsunoyu, Kusatsu-machi

3.1
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Agatsuma-gun
Observe and try rich, age-old practices at Netsunoyu. Centered around an ancient onsen, which produces hot spring water at a temperature too high to bathe in, the people here would cool the water by stirring it with large paddles in a ritualistic song and dance routine. Here, you'll get to witness and take part in the practice, picking up a paddle and having a go yourself. Consider arriving early, as this activity is popular with tourists, so you can expect to queue to get in.

    Water honestly think if you just look at firs, but go to Kusatsu once they see it. Experience and got the certificates. People lined up early so crowded when it comes to standing room only.

    Thermal bath in front of hot water field. Kusatsu's "hot buff" and can often be found dancing show. Performance fit women dressed in matching attire, the famous Kusatsu paragraph is emotional enough. So much fun!
