With the largest amount of natural flowing hot spring water in Japan, there are a lot of conveniently located hot spring facilities in Kusatsu.
Here in a relaxed atmosphere, visitors can make new friends while soaking their feet in hot spring waters. This is a water basin located near Yubatake at which visitors can experience Kusatsu’s fresh, pure hot spring water. By soaking your hands or feet for just a few minutes in the water, you’ll be able to feel the therapeutic effects due to the water’s high acidity. Built in a traditional thatched cottage style with cypress wood, Yu-kemuri Tei is a replica of the Matsu-no-yu public bathhouse that stood at the same location during the Edo Period.
We promise everyone a traditional onsen experience here by just feeling or soaking their feet in the hot spring water from Yubatake next door, which has flown into the basin. Reopened in February 2010 after renovations with free, unlimited access.
