About this sight

This outdoor hot spring bath, called a rotenburo in Japanese, is open year-round and accessible for a small fee. Located within Sainokawara Park in the hot spring resort town of Kusatsu, the open air bath offers relaxation amongst nature. The water from the hot spring is said to alleviate nerve pain, joint pain, chronic digestive disease, and heal the skin. Men and women bathe separately at Sainokawara, as is usual for most hot spring baths in Japan.
