Sainokawara Park, Kusatsu-machi

(340+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Take in the geothermal features of Sainokawara Park, a valley boasting several hot springs and a large outdoor bath of naturally warmed water. Locals have long mythologized the mysterious, evocative landscape of the valley, as evidenced by the number of statues and monuments dotting the area. Hike between the main hot springs to see the water bubbling to the surface, breaking out to form warm streams, and flowing down into a cascading waterfall. Take a dip in the main pools, separated by gender and each able to fit 100 bathers. Put Sainokawara Park into our Kusatsu-machi itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Kusatsu-machi.

  • Very accessible. It is near Yubatake one of the famous spot of Kusatsu. It has its own foot onsen. If you walk further youll find Sainokawara outdoor onsen. The park on its own is very scenic.
  • You can see flowing hot spring water, the hot spring water bubbles up to the surface the steam fills the air. A park unlike any other!
  • This is the hot springs Park. When I went to Kusatsu Onsen is able to soak in the nature of a very relaxing place come thank you want to. Less than 15 minutes walking distance from the center of hot water field, can be arrived at.

  • Spring river is the feeling of the Park. And steaming up from here and there and the color of the water of the River a little emerald green tint. Here is famous for its breadth and open-air bath at 600 yen on the back of the Park. How are you going to park there free foot, wipe the end!
