We walked through at night and then the next morning. Hot spring water was flowing everywhere and ee dipped our feet in one of the many footbaths. Definitely check it out when in Kusatsu, and be sure to dip in the huge outdoor bath. Enjoy!

This is the good place to walk around and also you should try a huge hotspings there
which is the biggest openair hotspings i have ever tried. Only one point I do not like is that they charge Yen100 for the locker and do not return. Other places charge once and return.

This park stretches along the valley about 10 minutes from the Yubatake.

Once you are near the park you see water steaming and bubbling up from the ground, a rocky landscape and trees. The path in the park is easy to walk, but it is fun to get off the path and walk amongst the water and rocks. There are a few foot baths with benches for sitting whilst you soak your feet - other folks have just used the natural pools as impromptu foot baths.

Added to the natural world, there are many rock piles left by visitors. Some are tiny - just two or three rocks placed on top of each other; others are very large and tall constructions indeed. Along the path are a few commemorative busts and statues.

The Sai no Kawara Rotenburo is in the park at a turn in the pathway. There are also walking trails throughout the park.

Entry to the park is free.

Beautiful paved walking trail with hot spring stream running through the middle. The park is open until 8pm and is lit with mood lighting. The kids really enjoyed exploring the park. There were also a few spots to have foot bath and also a paid public onsen.

Lovely park leading up to a public onset

We visited in winter and the contrast of hot water springs and snow make it a very scenic experience

There are a number of spots where you can drop your feet into the springs and at there is a wonderfull open air public onsen which is quite an experience

The park is very scenic and free of charge. The running of hot spring water during snowy season give special visual effects. Consider trying the foot onsen open to public which is also free. Remember to bring a hand towel for that. There is an on-site onsen with both indoor and outdoor pool for 600 yen which I did not try. Also bring your own towel as renting / buying them on-site is quite expensive.

I stayed in the Kusatsu Hotel which is just next to the Sainokawara Park. Walked there in 5 mins and a good place to take some pictures. Not worth to go there if you need to travel long time as this is only a small park.

Title says it all. Very close to a cute part of the town, the main entrance leads you through a beautiful paved walking trail with views of the hot, steamy river and waterbeds bubbling beneath you and next to you. There is a Shinto Shrine towards the beginning which offers a great view of a steep hill full of Tori gates. Following that, there are some foot baths, and finally the onsen. For those willing to walk up the large hill, you reach the spot I believe called “devil’s kettle” which is so hot and steamy you can really only hear the water but not see it through the steam. Very impressive!

Plenty of people sitting around, relaxing, but walk up to the bath further up for truly unique open-air experience. You can buy a small or large towel at the entrance and they have lockers right behind the booth (to your left).
The water is unique, nowhere in Japan have I experienced this.
Warmly recommend!

The Park is only 10 mins walk from our hotel, Kasutsu Onsen Onsen, or 10 mins walk from the centre of Onsen. It is a place must go. You can see where the hote spring comes out from the ground and flow into a stream. The water is crystal clear and warm (but beware it could be very hotel if near the spring fountain). There is an open public onsen where you could enjoy the hotel spring with a very reasonable fee (about JPY650). I think Kasutsu Onsen is one of the best hot springs in Japan.
