inakami (水上) is a mountainous hot spring resort town within easy reach of Tokyo in northern Gunma Prefecture. In the shadow of nearby Mount Tanigawa, Minakami, together with Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Shima, make up the four best known hot spring towns of Gunma. Perhaps its most famous baths are found at Takaragawa Onsen, a mixed hot spring with some of the largest outdoor baths in Japan.
