  • Up the long stairways is a cluster of shrines and statues that give you a feel for an earlier era and a thatched roof place of worship that has a small forest growing from it.  more »
  • 穿過一片小樹林後,便是神社的正殿,四周空無一人,氣氛有點凄清。 這間神社的繪馬好特別,是自己用筆寫上去,完全免費。 根據網上找到的資料,白根神社供奉的,是日本神話人物武尊。 神社範圍內靜靜的沒有半個人,有點陰森,兩人不敢久留,拍了幾張照片便離開。 由神社正門落一道樓梯,便是草津溫泉的溫泉街,遊人甚多,非常熱鬧。  more »

  • It is a shrine that enshrines the Japanese taketo, which is said to have discovered Kusatsu Onsen. Unlike the light Fountain temple which can be seen well from the Yubatake, this place is deserted or because only the people who know do not visit. Because it is on the hill overlooking Kusatsu Onsen, the view is good, but the shrine is mediocre and there is not even a person's sign in declared. The rooms were clean and the staff were very nice.

  • It is a shrine which is about ten minutes or less to walk in the northwest direction from the Yubatake. It is a very small shrine, but you can take water. I did not go in the approach of the steep stairs (and the wrong way) I went from the other side, please follow both roots in the return trip by all means. Every year, on July 16 and 17, there are festivals, and there are ten shrines, and at night they gather in the hot fields. By the way, it seems that the mikoshi of the Shirane shrine is only 17 days. It happened to be the 16th day that I visited, so I was in the middle of a mikoshi gathering at Shirane Shrine. I think that it is a very good shrine to the person who takes water because it is possible to also have the divine water. When I visited the place of the God water, I was able to have you put water in the empty plastic bottle purposely. It is a shrine that is not glamorous, but because it is a relieved shrine, when you come to Kusatsu Onsen, please visit by all means.
