Gero Hot Spring is one of the three top quality hot springs (onsen) in Japan. Nicknamed “The Water of Beauties”, it’s said that the water in Gero Hot Springs has beautifying qualities that help turn the bathers’ skin as smooth as the water itself. The highlight of Gero Onsen is “Fusenchi”, a huge open-air stone bath located right next to Hida River. Due to the location and it being a mixed bath, bathers must wear bathing suits to enter the hot spring.
