Hotel Sakurai



Kusatsu of Gunma prefecture is known as one of the outstanding hot springs in Japan.
And Hotel Sakurai draws three of the hot spring sources of Kusatsu.

You may enjoy a hot spring of 100% where no water is added.  Luxuriate in the hot spring of the Kusatsu Bandai, Kawahara of the west, and Watano-yu where policy of origin is declared.
The large public bath is the largest in Kusatsu of 30m.
The open air bath is of rural beauty and is made from rocks, and the milk white water is distinctive.

"Rindo" and "Shakunage" which should be experienced at least once, are special baths which are limited to only 20 groups per day.
Why not try the baths which may be rented as a whole depending on the timing?

Enjoy a buffet or Kaiseki cuisine for dinner.
There are high quality rainbow trouts, Joshu beef, local vegetables, homemade tofus of Asama brewery, and plates of high satisfaction will be served both in quality and quantity.

All of the rooms have an inner garden in the shin-kyakuden(new guest hall)wing of Sukiya(tea ceremony room) structure, and there are rooms with an open air bath.The structure of the rooms vary including the hon-kyakuden(main guest hall)wing which have a calming atmosphere.
The seasonal changes you see from the window, the aroma and the temperature all provide discoveries of the "rich" Japan.

There are Sakura Taikos (drums) and yumomi (traditional way of cooling down spring water)shows are held every day. There is also a garden pool, and you may walk to yubatake (hot water field) which is 9 minutes by foot.
Enjoy a day full of delights at Hotel Sakurai.

初めての草津温泉旅行でした。 子供達が湯もみ体験をでき、大変喜んでいました。 懐かしい曲も聴けて、奥さんが帰りの車で『耳から離れない。』と言って歌っていました。 良い思い出をありがとうございました。

It was my first trip to Kusatsu Onsen. The children were very happy to have a hot spring experience. I can listen to nostalgic songs and my wife is in the car on the way home, "I can't leave my ear. I was singing and saying. Thank you for the good memories.

Read more スタッフの皆さん、有難うございました。 ホテルの場所が草津温泉街入って真正面で分り易く、駐車場も広い平地の割には、ロビー迄自分で荷物を持って歩いても全く苦にならない距離で便利、ロビーは広く開放感抜群、今回は本客殿和室10畳タイプに宿泊、和室が3部屋の広々とした部屋でゆったり過ごせました、又、大きなホテルなのに部屋から各施設へのアプローチも分かりやすく、他にもかなりのお客さんが収容されて居たと思いますが移動時のエレベーター待ちが殆ど無く、他のお客さんと一緒になる事も有りませんでした。 大浴場は広々とゆったり寛ぐ事が出来とても良かったですが、脱衣場で水が飲めると良かった。 朝夕のバイキングは、2ステーション式で行列が出来にくい広々とした配置で混雑を感じる事なく、席もテーブルの向きに一工夫、前後左右との距離が広く背後への気遣いは最小限で立ち上がる事が出来る等、快適に料理を堪能する事ができました。 湯畑へはシャトルバスが出てますが、歩いても苦にならない距離、夜のライトアップと朝の散歩に行きましたが、朝の散歩で発見したのは最短ルートを使えば湯畑まで3分程で行けるとても便利な立地にホテルがある事。 お土産売り場も充実、殆どの土産品がここで買う事が出来るかと思います。 土産を買うタイミングを考えたり持ち歩く煩わしさを気にせず観光する事が出来ました。 外湯巡りをしたかったが、チェックインから夕食開始までの時間が短いので、チェックイン時間か、駐車場の解放時間を早めるか、又は、夕食時間を遅くする等の配慮が有ると良かった。

Thank you to all the staff. The location of the hotel is easy to find directly in the Kusatsu hot spring area, and the parking lot is wide, even if it is a flat area where the parking space is wide, it is convenient at a distance that does not bother you at all. This time I stayed in a Japanese-style room with 10 tatami types, and I could relax in a spacious room with 3 Japanese-style rooms. Also, although it is a large hotel, the approach from the room to each facility is easy to understand, and quite a few other guests. I think that I was housed, but there was almost no waiting for the elevator at the time of movement, and there was nothing to be with other customers. The large public bath was very spacious and very relaxing, but it was good to have some water at the dressing room. In the morning and evening buffets, there is a two-station system, which is difficult to process in a row, and without feeling crowdedness, there is no need to feel crowded. I was able to enjoy the food comfortably, such as There is a shuttle bus to Yubata, but I went to light up the night and walk in the morning at a distance that would not bother even if I walked. There is a hotel in a very convenient location where you can go for a while. The souvenir shop is also full, I think I can buy most souvenirs here. I was able to go sightseeing without worrying about the hassle and thinking about when to buy souvenirs. I wanted to go outside the water bath, but since the time from check-in to dinner start was short, it was good if there was consideration such as check-in time, release time of parking lot earlier or dinner time delayed .
