InformationInformation

More than a century ago, a German physician named Dr. Erwin von Baelz was the firs to describe Kusatsu Onsen Hot Spring as "the world's finest spa and health resort". Possessing the latest medical skills of Western Europe, Dr. Baelz was invited to Japan by the government in 1876 and later became known as "the father of modern Japanese medicine". the unique qualities and mysterious efficacies of Kusatsu Onsen, which are quite unknown in Europe, drew Dr. Baelz to the area many times to conduct research that he later presented to a medical convention in Germany.
The memorial hall was built to exhibit his countless achievements and the mark that he made on history.
