There's a video with English subtitles that explains the history of "massaging" the water to cool it down so it could be used in the baths. Followed by a demonstration dance/song of this "massaging" along with an option for audience participation. It's fun, entertaining and...More

Start with little bit of Kusatsu yubatake history, sing and dance, they demonstrate on how Kusatsu-machi cools their hot spring. The interesting part is that guests get to participate in the stirring of the wooden plank to cool down the water. All volunteers were given...More
