Kusatsu Hot Spring is a very popular tourist location. In the last few years the landscape has begun to change as the surrounding infrastructure is upgraded. As part of this, an upgrade in landscape lighting is planned for the hot water fields, Yubatake, and Sainokawara Park. In the first round of construction, the after-hours lighting surrounding the symbolic Kusatsu Hot Water Fields was upgraded. The hot water beds are softly illuminated, coming to form amongst the rising stream to delight visitors.
