Stroll Through the Lit Up Onsen Town!

Kusatsu Onsen is one of Japan’s three famous hot springs. A must-see part of any tour of Kusatsu Onsen is its yubatake, or hot water field. The yubatake is Kusatsu Onsen’s largest source of spring water, located at the heart of the facility.
Steam and sulfuric smell rise from the surface of the yubatake, where 4000 litres of water streams out every minute. The high-temperature water cools as it flows through the pipe, and it is distributed to all of the inns, hotels, and public baths in the town.

The yubatake is typically lit up on a daily basis, but the special lighting event sees the area illuminated with 5 different colors of lights, so visitors can enjoy the fantastical scene that unfolds.
At the footbath “Steam Pavilion,” located next to the yubatake, visitors can enjoy free footbaths 24 hours a day.
