About Shibukawa

Nicknamed the “Belly Button of Japan” due to its central location, Shibukawa is a small city that lies in the shadow of Mount Haruna. It’s home to the popular hot spring resort of Ikaho Onsen and a recreational caldera lake, as well as a Buddhist temple that’s part of the Kannon pilgrimage circuit.

Things to do

The historic Ikaho Onsen is nestled on the slopes of Mount Haruna and featured in Japan’s oldest existing poetry collection, the Manyoshu. Stroll along the stone pathway that leads through the heart of the town, bathe in the iron-rich waters of its “Golden Water”, then sample the steamed buns, known as “onsen manju”, that originated here.

Enjoy the scenic drive from Ikaho Onsen to the caldera lake of Mount Haruna, which is a popular destination for boating in the summer and skating when it freezes over in winter. A ropeway leads from its shores to the summit of Mount Haruna, where there are expansive views across Gunma all the way to Mount Fuji.

Make a pilgrimage to the Buddhist temple of Mizusawa-dera, one of 33 temples along the Bandō Sanjūsankasho circuit dedicated to the Bodhisattva Kannon. It’s renowned for a venerated bronze statue of the Goddess of Mercy and a hexagonal pagoda designated an Important Cultural Property.

Travelling with kids? Enjoy the rides and amusement attractions in Shibukawa Skyland Park. It’s home to an acorn-inspired teacup ride, a roller coaster and an Italian-made carousel, as well as a miniature steam train that chugs around the park.

Getting around

Shibukawa is around 2.5 hours by train from Tokyo and three hours from Niigata International Airport. Buses travel throughout Shibukawa and connect to Ikaho Onsen.
