Kamuiwakka Falls [Dec. 19th, 2005|12:09 pm]

A visit to Kamuiwakka Falls is one of Japan's ultimate hot spring experiences.

In order to reach the waterfall, bathers first have to hike up a warm mountain stream for about 20-30 minutes, wading through the water and climbing minor waterfalls. Once you reach the top, you can take a hot spring bath in the natural basin at the base of the waterfall. Unlike in most other Japanese hot springs, people use swimming suits.

Be aware that the climb up the stream is very steep and slippery in some places, and that you have little choice but to actually walk in the water (it is less slippery in the water than at the stream's edge). Therefore, it is highly recommended to bring appropriate footwear, such as special climbing socks (see picture above) or traditional straw sandals.

Due to its tremendous beauty, the Kamuiwakka Falls can become crowded during the high season in July and August. On the other hand, the falls are not accessible during the winter months.

Kusatsu Onsen is one of Japan's most famous hot spring resorts, blessed with large volumes of high quality hot spring water, said to cure every illness but lovesickness.

Well known as hot spring resort for many centuries, Kusatsu's fame was further boasted by German doctor Erwin von Baelz, who served at the imperial court in the late 1800s and recommended Kusatsu for its water's health benefits.

Situated at an altitude of 1200 meters above sea level in the mountains of Gunma Prefecture, Kusatsu also offers skiing in winter and hiking during the rest of the year to be enjoyed in combination with hot spring bathing.

Kusatsu is located along Japan's Romantic Road.
