草津町 Agatsuma District, Gunma Prefecture 377-1711
From the Promoter:
Eroica Japan was again a great success and thank everyone for coming out to enjoy the spectacular riding in the new departure of the breathtaking city of Kusatsu, in the beautiful district of Agatsuma, in Gunma Prefecture. For the sixth edition we logged a new record of more than 300 participants! We hope each and every one of you had a special weekend.
The Agatsuma District is a hidden gem located in the Gunma Prefecture, North of Tokyo. The District is comprised of 6 towns and villages. This area was formerly part of Kōzuke Province, administered directly by the Tokugawa Shogunate (he is one of the most famous Shogun/Warlord in Japanese history) and the Oguri-Samurai Clan.
The area economy is predominantly supported by agriculture and tourism. There is something for everyone to be found throughout the district. If you love food you will have a difficult decision to make as there are so many excellent options. There are art shows, festivals throughout the year, skiing and snowboarding in the winter and hiking and cycling the rest of year.
The Onsen will be waiting for you to relax in when you return after an exciting day of exploring.
See you back in 2019, or later this year at another Eroica event!
