This was my third time to see the Yumomi performance, the first being over 40 years ago and the last about 28.
The onsen waters of Kusatsu range from over 50 degrees C to over 90 degrees. Yumomi is performed to cool the waters without affecting the benefits (supposedly enhancing them). The women use paddles to churn the water while singing about wonderful Kusatsu. On my last visit, my daughter was able to take part but on this occasion, due to virus restrictions, participation was not allowed. There are a number of shows during the day. We went to the 3pm show. The queue formed before 2pm and doors opened at 2.30. It's all over in about 20 mins but well worth seeing.

The show looked great, but there is no English. It’s all spoken in Japanese. Still a good experience and pretty inexpensive.

This place is very famous and almost everybody visits so you can visit once and say that that was not so good as expected to others like I do but it may be wise to skip.

For a small fee, we were entertained with traditional song and dance and we were able to participate.

Thus is where the Yumomi is held.
The performance was fun to watch but it could be better if some of the narrations and the songs used have english translations since I'm the curious kind.

But worth the watch nevertheless.
I also regret not joining the people who want to try paddling the water. :(

There's a video with English subtitles that explains the history of "massaging" the water to cool it down so it could be used in the baths.

Followed by a demonstration dance/song of this "massaging" along with an option for audience participation.

It's fun, entertaining and worth the admission and time if you're in Kusatsu.

Demonstration about how the town cools their hot water which comes from the mountains (I think). Very cultural and interactive experience

Yes, as others have said, this is a bit of cheesy tourist stuff but it is fun and not expensive. The ticket price is ¥600 so it is not going to break the bank. Enjoy it for what it is and you can have a go yourself. If you want to do this you will need to be in the downstairs section. There are six shows a day, three in the morning and three in the afternoon.
