This is a short post on the ryokan I stayed in Gero Onsen (下呂温泉), Gifu Prefecture. Read my previous post on Seki City Swordsmith. ^^
I loooove Onsen and I was so excited to visit Gero Onsen as it is one of the top 3 famous springs in Japan (I think rated based on the quality of the hotspring), along with Kusatsu onsen (草津温泉) in Gunma Prefecture (which I visited when I was 8 months pregnant with Junya in 2014!) as well as Arima Onsen (有馬温泉) in Hyogo Prefecture.
Other famous onsen you should keep in your list include Beppu Onsen (Oita Prefecture), Yufuin Onsen (Oita Prefecture), Dogo Onsen (Ehime Prefecture), Kinugawa Onsen (Tochigi Prefecture), Hakone Onsen (Kanagawa Prefecture), etc. I think after my #47prefecturemission, I am going to have an Onsen-tour and also Jinja (shrine) tour. It’s very mentally refreshing and spiritually lifting. read more
