If something ails you, you might be wise to visit Kusatsu Onsen. It's a popular tourist destination in Gunma Prefecture, northwest of Tokyo. Kusatsu boasts having thirteen public baths, all of which are free to use and maintained by the townspeople. The waters have been said to have healing properties for centuries, largely thanks to a German doctor, Erwin von Baelz, who taught medicine at Tokyo University. Locals also claim that the waters can heal any sickness, except a broken heart.
