Found in the mountains of the Gifu Prefecture, Gero Onsen is considered one of the top three hot-springs in all Japan. The hot spring is famous for its healing waters from the 10th century said to be effective for relieving fatigue, treating nervous disorders, impaired motor function, and rheumatism. Although
geroliterally translates to
vomit, the hot spring has nothing to do with that. Instead, Gero Onsen has earned the nickname
Bijin no Yu, hot springs for the beautiful, due to it's incredible waters and scenic location. Along with Arima Onsen in Hyogo and Kusatsu Onsen in Gunma, Gero Onsen is considered part of the top three famous springs and is a popular tourist destination.
Gero Onsen also has many foot-baths around town which tourists and travelers can enjoy at their leisure. Gero Onsen attracts over one million guests every year with their therapeutic baths, traditional Japanese town atmosphere, and cultural charms. To gain the most out of their trips, many travelers purchase a Yumeguri Tegata or wooden spa pass. The pass allows access to three baths of your choosing from over twenty choices. The Yumeguri Tegata is also a popular souvenir to remember your amazing trip to Gero Onsen.
As one of the top three hot-springs in all Japan, Gero Onsen is a must next to Arima and Kusatsu.
