  • The day we went there was excellent and memorable day in my Japanese stay. Kusatsu is the famous tourist destination for experiencing snowfall and Japanese traditional onsen to nature lover backpackers. We really enjoyed the day. We together walked on mountainous road covered with snow. First time in my life I saw and enjoyed snowfall that why I was so excited.
  • Most popular hot spring in Japan. Here has longest history and still keeping nice hot water. Very nice for skin while has strong smell. Here are small town and not so many entertainment. Enjoy shopping in cute store. Car access is recommended but public transportation is workable too.
