Kanto

Kanto

Kanto region, on the eastern side of the Japan’s main island Honshu, is a broad plain dominated by and nearly synonymous with the megalopolis of Tokyo and its suburbs. Within its boundaries, slightly more than 40 percent of the land area is the Kanto Plain. The rest consists of the hills and mountains that form the land borders. The population in this region is about 40 million, amounting to approximately one third of the total population of Japan.

Gunma

Situated to the northwest of the Kanto Plains, Gunma abounds with awesome mountains and hot spring villages. The Ashio Mountain Range lies to the east, while Mt. Nikko-Shirane-san, Mt. Hotaka-yama’s volcanic clusters, and several hot springs can be found throughout this area. Across the prefectural borders with Niigata, Fukushima and Tochigi lies Oze-ga-hara, an elevated marshland. This delightful mountainous region has inspired many celebrated poets and novelists prominent in the history of literature. In modern times, the sericulture industry flourished to produce prosperous textile towns such as Maebashi, the center of the prefectural administration, Kiryu, Isesaki, and other places.

Kusatsu, Gunma

Despite its location deep in the mountains, away from convenient modes of transportation, the name “Kusatsu Onsen” has long resonated as a hot spring having abundant healing qualities. In almost all of the many lists ranking Onsen that were made during Japan’s Edo Period (1603 – 1868), Kusatsu Onsen rated as number one in eastern Japan. Its popularity was summed up with the phrase “The hamlet of Kusatsu has the hustle and bustle of Edo (Tokyo)”. Even now, Kusatsu consistently ranks at the top of Onsen popularity surveys.
