Lonely Planet review

Minakami Onsen is a thriving onsen town that frequented by couples. If you’re not interested in a romantic rendezvous, you can white-water raft in the summer. To get there, take the Jōetsu Line from Takasaki to Minakami Station ( tokkyū/futsū ¥2360/950, 54/64 minutes). From the station, the onsen is a pleasant 15-minute walk. Or take the Jōetsu shinkansen from Tokyo Station to Jōmō-Kōgen Station (¥5240, 1¼ hours), then a 15-minute shuttle bus (¥600).
