Netsunoyu, Kusatsu-machi

3.0
#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.

  • If you would like towards the end is available. I would sit as much as possible before may not participate and have a lot of people. Staff in better rhythm than I thought.

  • It is possible to watch the traditional blend of the soup, and to play with the music to turn the very hot spring water with a plank to turn the temperature down. Remember to go to the next level of experience. After the experience, there will be a century of articles (certificates and postcards). It's about 30 minutes.
