The Onsen is very good. The room is "Japanese" style and we felt very good there. Nice garden. The train is not a problem. We were surprised by the quality of food. Very good food selection and very nice and polite service. Highly recommend.

Very little to do here in Gero apart from the onsen and the Gassho village. Rusty, run down and a blot on the beautiful surrounding landscape. The best bit was the train ride to and from! Stay in takayama if you want more to do/see/eat...More

Gero was not high on our priority list during the family's 10-day vacation in Japan. It was just a stopover between Nagoya airport and Takayama. But in the end, Gero turned out to be everyone's favourite destination! The warm hospitality of our ryokan, Gero Onsen...More

Onsen (hot springs) bathing is a very popular activity for Japanese people, and Gero is a famous Onsen city. It is recommendable to overnight to enjoy fully this resort. But even if you make a day trip, you can distract yourself from everyday disturbance. There...More

Definitely a heaven for onsen lovers. There are free leg onsen everywhere. There's also an open air onsen right beside the river. We met several friendly uncles there that told us to enjoy the open air onsen. Also remember to try out their steamed bun!...More

Small hot spring down with a open air bath. Try it to feel like a local. The restaurants in town closed between 2-5 pm so grab your lunch first or go to the Lawson convenient store to grab some food. Good getaway for a dip~
