Kusatsu02: We can walk around the compact town.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

I live in Kawagoe-city Saitama-prefecture Japan. There are many traditional warehouses in Kawagoe. So many Japanese and the people from overseas come to sightseeing. http://www.koedo.or.jp/foreign/english/index.html

  1. I enjoy reading your blog. In this entry, you write “most tourists walk around while eating something”. I wonder, because I read in another blog, in Japan, it is not polite to walk and eat/drink at the same time??

    1. Thank you for reading my blog.I agree. But all store staff are passing out sample food on the street, so tourists have to eat there.
      Of course some tourists are eating something while they don’t walk.
      But they can’t sit because there aren’t place for sitting.
      They eat standing up. 🙂
