Sainokawara Park, Kusatsu-machi

4.3
#2 of 116 in Parks in Gunma Prefecture
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 journey planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    I feel the tiredness is a little climb after it enters the bath but it is okay to go down from a separate two-pronged. Best in the West River is a large open-air bath. Divided men and women from men bath perfect looks. While Trafalgar near the entrance is the women's dressing room. And use the left one more so close to the bath is empty. A bit slippery so read with care. Breakfast was very good. I think I want my come you go sightseeing in bath.

    Open-air bath is best. From the Yubatake in river Beach Park in the West end. And the rivers water, at about a 15-minute walk away from the hot water field from enjoying nature is a male and female open-air bath on arrival. I thought dressing room and bath were clean. Do not wash. It is only warm. Gazing at the sky, the trees and prepared while accompanied by friends and talk slowly. Bathing before the 上gari湯 after bath, open-air bath is hot. Ordinary bath or shower facilities.

    A short walk from the Kusatsu hotel. Go up the slope and large open-air bath, spacious, clean is the best. Dressing area cleaning lady was feeling bad. To go to the baths, hot springs, calm. Spring is here and there, cold and delicious. Make the location of the new foot or were under construction.

    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.

    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!
