So if you will go to Onsen, I advise you to visit Kusatsu Onsen. Because Kusatsu Onsen is the most famous Onsen in Japan, and there is very good quality, abundant hot springs.
It is sung to the folk songs from of old.
Kusatsu Onsen is very good hot spring, you should visit there once in your life.

Of course, the purpose of which Japanese people visit to Onsen is to take a bath in hot springs.
Public large bathrooms
It is a general custom in Japan that many people take a bath together.
There are public bathrooms in Ryokan. Mostly they are divided for men and for women.
In Kiyoshigekan there are two public large bathrooms, one is for men and another is for women.
Each bathroom has two bathtubs, indoor and outdoor.
You might feel resistance to taking a bath with other people. But you don’t need to worry. We have private bathrooms with lock. You can enjoy taking the bath in hot springs alone or with only your family.
The private bathrooms are free. You can use the private bathrooms when no one uses it.
