Traditional Japanese-style inn - Yunoshimakan in Gero Onsen

Yunoshimakan is a long-standing ryokan (Japanese-style inn) in Gero Onsen. The ryokan was established in 1931 and has had the honor of accommodating the previous Emperor Showa and the current Emperor Akihito. The more than 80-years-old wooden structure in a traditional sukiya-style took three years to be built by artisans of Hida, who are local artisans famous for their skillful techniques. The building is designated as a National Tangible Cultural Asset. Since the hotel stands in the great forest, each room commands a view of natural beauty. Guests here can experience the real Japan by staying at this historical main building surrounded by nature. Our ryokan is the best choice for those who want to touch and sample the ambience of real Japan.

A garden designed in keeping with its natural surroundings

The garden surrounding the ryokan building was designed in harmony with several centenarian Japanese cypresses and cedars that have grown here naturally. Each season offers various scenic beauties such as green leaves and beautiful flowers. Guests can enjoy strolling around the woods and bird-watching in the trekking course behind our building.

Historical Western-style hall

This Western-style hall was built as an entertaining hall in 1931, when Yunoshimakan was opened. It is a modern-style building from the Taisho era (1912-1926). Later, the dancehall was renovated into a bar called "Club Moonlight," which continues to fascinate people.
