草津音楽祭 – Summer Music Academy and Festival in Kusatsu


We are in Kusatsu Hotsprings this week. We sense the air of autumn here already. Kusatsu International Music Academy & Festival has started as their annual summer event, and there are some street concerts as shown along with many professional concerts in the hall. It would be more impressive if these voluntary players show better skills. For the festival, there are some frequent visitor-artists from Germany and Italy, and the concerts are intimate. For this village, the festival helps extending the high summer-season as it attracts travelers even after “Obon” which is Buddhist’s prayer holiday in mid August.
