Special Lightup of Yubatake, Kusatsu Onsen, Japan 草津溫泉湯畑特別燈光秀

As the highlight of the seasonal Illumination program, the Yubatake Illumination Committee brought out a 5-day event "Special Lightup". At 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., March 11-14, the committee added colorful spotlight show accompanying with classic music.

作為整個燈節的高潮,主辦單位在3/11-14每晚7點到10點更舉辦了特別燈光秀,以五彩燈光伴隨音樂,讓整個湯畑籠罩在夢幻的氛圍中。

 

Yubatake(湯畑), or "hot water field", is a set of wooden boxes used to collect minerals of hot spring water in Kusatsu, Japan. As the main tourist attraction spot, yubatake represents the quality and the abundant water output of the spring source. The local hot-spring hotel alliance thus announced "Onsen-ism" to cerebrate this gift of nature in 2001. Recently, it also hold a special "Illumination" program from November to March, setting various light installations that adds more holiday atmosphere.

"湯畑"是草津溫泉獨有的景觀,是以一串連結起來的木箱來收集溫泉中的礦物質,乾燥之後做成"湯の花",可以給遊客買回家泡。由於泉質優良,湧出量也居全日本第一,當地的溫泉旅館協同組合因此在2001年提出"泉質主義"來宣揚草津溫泉。近年來自歲末年終到3月底,他們也設立了特別的燈光裝置,來為湯畑增添更多溫馨的節慶氣氛。
