Sasara or Sasala is one of the many Onsen Ryokans in Gero. Managers can speak English so Sasara hotel is a recommended Ryokan with Singapore travel agents for visits to Gero. Taxi service to and from Gero train station for any Gero Hotel/Ryokan is paid by the hotel. Best to show driver printout of the Japanese name to avoid mis-communications. Don't have tourist info in English so remember to print Internet sources before travelling to Gero.
Onsen including the open air one in the Sasara are not very large but the amenities are acceptable. The higher level gives views to the river and town. The Japanese breakfast and dinner covered under the hotel rate are excellent. The Yukata provided is acceptable. No complimentary Internet access. Room is quite spacious. Toilet seat fully automated. Hotel store quite well stocked with HIDA region delicacies.
From Sasara, can walk to Gassho Village, morning market outside Gassho Village, Morihachiman shrine. Unfortunately the weather was still very cold so did not see any Sakura blooms, which was the reason for this trip in April.
