Yubatake - Kusatsu Onsen

What better way to rejuvenate and get out of fatigue as we all need to recover from stressful daily lives. Skincare products and pearls plus the perfect water for skin are the best ingredients to rejuvenate and feel you anew. Yubatake - Kusatsu Onsen has the highest output of healing hot spring water in the world. Its pH value is 2.1 which means it has an outstanding bactericidal component and is the best for skin.

As an onsen town, the healing power of Kusatsu’s waters are legendary. A soak in the sulfuric waters is said to have the potency to cure any and all ills save for a broken heart. Furthermore, in the late 1800’s German doctor Erwin von Baelz even recognized the rejuvenative powers of Kutasu. Going to hot springs in Japan is high on the list of great things to do and is a fantastic way to calm the nerves and get refreshed. Few things are as an authentic Japanese experience as going to a Japanese hot spring and enjoying the local Japanese cuisine and accommodations. Among hot springs, Kusatsu (located in Gunma prefecture) is considered one of the very best. In fact it has been ranked as the number 1 hot spring by Japan's top travel agents for many years. Aside from the astounding volume of hot spring water the makeup of the water is also unique; has powerful antibacterial properties and is considered highly therapeutic by hot spring experts. I personally found it to be thoroughly relaxing and my skin was feeling great and looking better after just a couple of soaks.

Each minute more than 32,000 liters of heated spring water gush from their source at Mt. Shirane, a still-active volcano. To put that number in perspective, imagine 230,000 barrels full of hot spring water! The sheer volume of the flow allows for the large number of facilities in Kusatsu and the city claims to have one of the most plentiful springs in Japan. Unlike other areas, the waters of Kusatsu are never diluted, reheated, or otherwise adjusted which only serves to bolster their impressive healing capabilities.

Compared with other popular onsen towns, Kusatsu is a bit of rustic vibe of the area, coupled with its impressive scenery, make the journey worth it. Given its remote location, getting to and around Kusatsu onsen can be intimidating even for long term residents but fret not; we will guide you with any and all information you might need to get the most out of your stay!

Accommodation will be held in a modern-style ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) located high up in the center of a hot spring town. The garden-style open-air bath is perfect for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. After soaking in the bath, you can enjoy a stroll around the pleasant hot spring town in their yukata (casual summer kimono) and geta (Japanese wooden clogs).

Kusatsu is first and foremost an onsen town and the springs are its main attractions. Nestled in the Japanese Alps, not far from Nagano, Kusatsu Onsen is also located near a ski resort, open every winter, where skiers can hit the slopes of Tenguyama and Honshiranesan. Likewise, the area is not really home to any famous shrines or temples like Kyoto or Kamakura. Nevertheless, if you’re in the mood to see some spiritual spots before or after your dip in the onsen, we just arrange it for you (all upon request).

The benefits and power of water

According to Global Wellness Institute the benefits of water environments for our wellbeing are strongly tied to the health of those environments, and that conservation efforts need to factor in the “natural capital” of blue space in supporting our wellbeing. Scientists’s work has found a link between a sense of personal connection to the water and environmentally friendly behavior; researchers hope that we may be more inclined to protect blue space if the health benefits are proven.

“To go under the water is synonymous with letting go.” “It could be lying on a beach or somebody handing you a cocktail. For somebody else, it could be a wild, empty coast. But there is this really human sense of: ‘Oh, look, there’s the sea’ – and the shoulders drop.”

When people promote time in nature as the key to wellbeing, they usually focus on green spaces. But a new article in the Guardian - "Blue Spaces: why time spent near the water is the secret of happiness" explains why and how “blue space” (the ocean, rivers, lakes, canals, waterfalls, even urban fountains) positively impacts our mind and body - from boosting Vitamin D to having a stronger psychologically restorative effect than other natural environments. Support for the idea of “blue” prescriptions - to take a couple hours a week around water - is just beginning to rise.
