Shibukawa is the home of Ikaho, a spa resort situated halfway up Mount Haruna in Gunma Prefecture. Steep, stone steps wind their way from the base of the town up to Ikaho Shrine, making for a magical walk that visitors have enjoyed for over a hundred years. You can take in beautiful views of the surrounding snow-capped mountain ranges as you stroll through Ikaho’s narrow streets – browsing the many cafes and gift shops set between the hot spring spas and guesthouses.
The surrounding area is great for enjoying outdoor activities, exploring shrines and temples, or just simply relaxing in one of the many, many hot spring spas. Ikaho is famous for its welcoming atmosphere and hospitality.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
