Netsunoyu, Kusatsu-machi

(3.1/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • On weekends and holidays only do I why hi湯 please try to experience from looking buff, is a long-awaited opportunity. About 40 people experience in one show. Those early and has been allowed because the winner is not. People lined up on both sides of the water massage place, lined up soon. Have time to experience two times during the show once every 20 minutes (per 20 participants each side 10), so I suggest there could be in a second time if even with first-hand experience as side by side if you do not return to the seat.
