Onsen

Suimeikan > Onsen

Gero Onsen, one of Japan’s Three Famous onsen, is also known by the name Bijin-no-yu, or “waters of beauty.” Guests may enjoy our rocky open-air bath with its wonderful feeling of openness, our panoramic view bathhouse that overlooks the town and mountains, and our Shimodome bathhouse with its wafting aroma of wood.

Open-Air Bath

Surrounded by verdant trees and huge boulders, our open-air bath has only the sky as their ceiling. Soak in the hot baths as you gaze up at Hida’s starry skies. Comfort is provided by the breezes blowing through the mountains.
