We were not impressed. I would put this VERY far down the list of places to see in this area. The bottom half of the steps had very few ships or restaurants. The upper half had more businesses but none of it lived up to the hype.

Park at the bottom at the lot for ¥600 and walk the 365 steps to the top. Fun gift shops, sweets, and restaurants along the way. Even carnival game shops on the way. Half way up is a onsen foot bath for free. Make it to the top to see the shrine. If you continue on the path to the onsen there is a cute coffee shop to stop for a drink and cake. My 5 and 7 year old did fine walking all the way up and down and loved the adventure

Like to shop, or like to eat this is where you need to go if you are in Gunma Japan. 365 steps may seem like a long way up, however by the time you walk in all the shops and taste all the food, as well as visiting the Villa, you made it to the top. Then on the way down more eating and shopping especially the shops and restaurant you missed along the way or just want a seconds.

Ikaho is known for its onsen, and the stone steps. It's just impossible to visit and not walk up (or down) the steps. Going up leads to the Ikaho shrine, on the way you'll pass some restaurants, shops and places to rest (and one public onsen).
If the weather is clear, you'll have a great view of the surroundings!

Stayed at a local Ryokan and spent a lot of time on the stairs, either in the shops or shooting gallery (10-yr old daughter was a crack shot and won a bunch of trinkets). Best shooting gallery (of the 3-4 on the Steps) was the indoor, heated one with multiple games such as ring toss. It really needs a convenience store, though. Closest was a liquor store that had snacks, etc

A visit to Ikaho cannot be completed without taking a walk of the Stone Steps. 365 steps may sound scary at the beginning. However, it is not difficult at all if you walk slowly and the steps are nicely paved. If you do not want to walk up, you may take the ropeway to reach the hill top and walk down along the staircase. There are some little shops and many onsens along the way. I quite enjoyed the short walk.

Only 365 steps to climb and there are many shops to see during your walk. There is footbath in the middle of the steps is great to take a rest. At the top, Ikaho Shrine is worth paying a respect. Walk further to the right are Kajika Bridge and Ikaho Onsen open-air bath.
In the evening with lights, Ikaho Stone Steps is very beautiful.

If you have issues with hills, take a taxi to the top of the townstairs/the bridge or the outdoor onsen and walk down the steps of the town. It was about 750 Yen, and made everything more pleasant. Walk down, enjoy the views, the temple, the snacks and the arcades

Cheated by walking down the step street instead of up. 365 steps in all. Tasted the wonderful onsen steamed manju. Wonderful stuff.
