Description: Kusatsu is the largest natural hot springs in Japan with more than a hundred springs gushing from the Earth which produce , altogether , more than 36 , 000 litres per minute . This abundance can be seen in the ÒYubatakeÓ the hot spring fields in the centre of town . KusatsuÕs long history as a flourishing spa town is a well known resort for recovering from illness or surgery . The Kusatsu tradition , ÒyumomiÓ or water massage , is used to cool off the areaÕs scalding waters , rather than dilute it with cold , the hot water is stirred with wooden paddles and cooled by the mountain air . To pass the time during the water massaging , the girls sing ÒKusatsu BushiÓ an old folk song famous throughout Japan .
