SpotShima Onsen

To the east of Kusatsu Onsen is Shima Onsen, surrounded by mountains. Yamaguchi Rotenburo (open-air bath) along the river is a free public bath open to anyone. The water of Shima Onsen is good for drinking and is believed to cure stomach and intestinal problems. At various locations in the town, you can find places to drink the hot spring water. Don’t drink too much at first. Try a bit and see how you feel. Dishes made with the freshwater fish from the Shima River are a must. There are many different types of hotels in this area, from traditional ryokan (Japanese-style hotels) to modern hotels.
