Getting There & Away

Gateway to Gunma Prefecture, Takasaki is an important transport hub where the Jōetsu and Hokuriku shinkansen (bullet train) lines branch out in the directions of Niigata and Kanazawa (via Nagano) respectively.

The most popular onsen villages are reached by a combination of local trains and buses, but, if you don't mind driving on winding mountain roads, renting a car here can make the journey vastly more pleasurable. Fair warning: it's hard to keep your eyes on the road with views this good.
