Gero-onsen is the largest hot spring town in Gifu, surrounded by the Hida Mountain Range. Legend has it that this hot spring was found when an egret informed the villagers of the spring’s existence. It is a simple alkaline spring featuring clear, colorless water with a mild fragrance and softness. Since early times, it has been utilized as a therapeutic bath used by hospitals and medical research institutions. By utilizing a ticket system called “Yumeguri-tegata,” which allows you to enter three affiliate facilities, you can easily enjoy taking hot springs in Gero. It should be mentioned that the delicacy of Hida beef is also something to experience.
