the shops and restaurants on stone step street are dated and boring. Quite a few shooting galleries and uninviting food stalls and shops

nice walk nice view. A lot of stairs to go up. I recommend you to do it early in the morning to avoid the crowded people. From the top of the stairs there is a path to go up to the top of the mountain and to have access to the children playground area and to the ice speed track, ice hockey hall & ice run hall. On these areas the view on the big snowy mountains is really wonderful.

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.

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

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.

I took the Shinkansen from Tokyo and changed to a local train at Takahashi to Shibukawa before catching the 20 minutes bus ride (bus platform 3) stopping at the Ikaho Onsen stpp instead of at the base of the stone steps. From here, we headed towards the scenic Kajika bridge. Nearby is the source of the hot spring and the original Ikaho Onsen. The whole area up here is beautifully covered by maple forest. About 300m down hill, we passed a shrine towards the stone steps. Many shops, food and games (60's or 70's games) stalls lined both sides of the stpne steps. Almost at the base sits the house of the Minister of Hawaii and the Trading Gate/Guard house next door. There is a small unkempt Japanese garden next to these two houses. And right at the bottom of thesr 365 steps is the Tourist Info Shop and bus stop.

Overall this town is quite interesting having quite some diverse attractions from the Hawaiian Minister's house to the games stalls and Onsen, despite it sitting on a hill.

This place turned out to be better than I expected. Not so apparent from the photos of this place is how you can constantly see great mountains in the distance while traversing the steps. It's a great feeling. We came in fall and there were also pockets of trees with red leaves along the steps, as well as around the shrine at the very top. Three hundred or so steps turned out to be not very many at all and we were done sooner than I expected, but it was fun while it lasted.

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!
