It is located south-east of Japan’s largest lake, Biwako, and can be reached in less than one hour from Kyoto by a train and a bus. Hotels can be found around the JR Minami-Kusatsu Station and the JR Kusatsu Station. Sorry but the ISCS cannot provide discount for hotels.
The venue is Kusatsu in Shiga Prefecture. Please do not get confused with Kusatsu(-onsen) in Gunma Prefecture.
