[Hot Spring Culture]
As a well-known hot spring that ranks with Kusatsu and Arima, this locale has a hot spring quality that has led to it being known as one of the top 3 in Japan. The large communal baths' open-air baths are open 24 hours a day, and guests can enjoy the seasonal scenery of Hida River and the majestic mountains while having a soak. Additionally, the private open-air baths are also available for JPY 2,000 (tax not included) for 45 minutes per room (requires a reservation on the day at the front desk). The cypress bath was refurbished in June 2019.

[Japanese Cuisine Culture]
The seasonal kaiseki course meals and Hida beef cuisine are recommended for guests' meals. The menu changes each season and is known for featuring a variety of arrangements. Enjoy luxurious, seasonal ingredients.

We stayed in a very comfortable Japanese style room with open air bath with hot water from Gero Onsen (one of the 3 best onsen in Japan). The traditional kaiseki dinner was served in a private eating room, and was marvelous (Hida beef really is a must).
