Gunma Prefecture, located in north-western Kanto, is home to Mt. Asamayama and Mt. Akagisan. Abounding in nature's bounty, it is famous for the best konnyaku and Mizusawa udon, one of the top three noodles. Kusatsu Onsen is one of Japan's three most famous hot springs. Yumomi, the tradition of stirring the onsen with a wooden plank while singing an old Japanese folk song, dates back to the Edo period. Visitors can enjoy skiing and other seasonal sports at the nearby Kusatsu Snow & Spa Resort.
