Hi folks,

I've been to Kusatsu onsen place in the beginning of this year. It was just a one-day trip from the Tokyo area. It sounds a bit hard but it was ok. I drove my car to Kusatsu. Unfortunately, we were involved in a bad jam on the way. There were four accidents on several parts of the highway. It was a really bad jam. It took us more than 6 hours to reach Kusatsu. (usually, it takes 3 to 4 hours). We dropped by and took a rest in each parking area while we were involved in the big traffic jam. After all, it was already afternoon when we arrived in the Kusatsu onsen area. I found a parking space near the entrance of Kusatsu onsen, called "Yu-batake". Yu-batake means "field of hot water"; this is actually the origin of a hotspring. You can see plenty of hot water coming out from underground. It has a lot of sulphur. This is a special feature of the Kusatsu hot spring. As I mentioned before on the Beppu Hotspring issue, it is like the Myoban onsen. This is a very common and famous place to enjoy a sulphur-based hot spring. You can enjoy it at some places for free! Today,
