Mount Kusatsu-Shirane (or Mount Shirane) is an active stratovolcano in Kusatsu, Gunma Prefecture. This 2,160-meter tall volcano has had notable eruptions..
To the west of Kusatsu Onsen Town is Sainokawara Park. It was once feared as a spring that spawned a Japanese ogre, but those superstitions are a thing of the past. Today, the open-air riverside hot springs enjoy the popularity they deserve. Dappled around the area are shrines and monuments to literary figures and prominent historical visitors to the area.
Indulge in the experience of the four seasons as you walk along the paths next to the pools of hot water where you can rest your weary feet. Snow-capped mountains greet you in winter, cherry blossoms beckon to you in spring, and the colors of summer and autumn will soothe your spirit.
If you're looking for a little more coverage than the great outdoors can provide, look no farther than Sainokawara Rotenburo.
