Kusatu has a unique character to it, namely its hot spa.
The character is a small area where tourists can walk all over the area in Kusatu easily.
We walked along a narrow path and a steep slope while smelling sulfur from the hot spa.
There are traditional buildings which includes a hotel and souvenir shops.
We could try food samples, which were manju (buns filled with minced pork and vegetables or bean-paste), rice cookies and Japanese pickles at some souvenir shops.
Most tourists walk around while eating something.
I bought rice cookies and unique beans for my family.
The shop“Mamekichi” that I bought the beans at sold various types of beans.
For example there are pickled plum, milk and aglio e olio peperoncino beans.
That’s the fun part of the trip.
