Before your trip, we have compiled some basic information about Gunma for your reference.
Takasaki Station is a stop on the Shinkansen bullet train and the last stop on the Takasaki Line and Shonan Shinjuku Line, so train access from Tokyo is not bad.
Takasaki Arena and Jonan Stadium are within walking distance from Takasaki Station.
Even in Gunma, it rarely snows in winter in the Takasaki area, so you can basically walk around the station to get there.
In Fujioka, the nearest station is on the Hachiko Line, which is less frequent, and you will need a car to get to your destination once you reach Fujioka Station, so a car is more convenient if you want to go to Fujioka.
Takasaki Station is the largest station in Gunma Prefecture, with a department store in front of it, and it is crowded with shoppers on weekends.
There are several hotels around the station.
New Sunpia Takasaki, which is a little far from the station but also serves as a skating rink, is located near the Takasaki Interchange, making it a convenient location for access by car.

Although it is a bit far from the center of Takasaki, one of the best and nationally famous tourist spots in Gunma Prefecture is the Tomioka Silk Mill.
The nearby Konjac Park is a smooth route for sightseeing.
In Takasaki, there is also Takasaki Kannon (Goddess of Mercy), but it is also a car ride from the station.
