Global rating :   
An unusual onsen, as this bath is located directly in the river! Located close to Kusatsu - you will need a car to reach the place, though, this hot spring is mixing with the water of the river, for the biggest pleasure of the visitors who bath in this shallow pool. There is a small hut where you can leave your belongings, as well as a ryokan close to the bath. Apart of that, there is not a lot to do in the immediate area.

Size :      
Not only there is this large pool, but also several rocky, smaller one a little down the stream.

View :    
It is quite usual to be in the river and look at the shores and the surroundings forests. Enjoy it then!

Modesty :      
Although not mandatory, it seems that most people wear swimming suits to bath in this river. There is however no proper changing rooms, and the nearby toilets are not exactly clean...

Area :   
Not a lot to do there. The best thing is to head of directly for Kusatsu.
