The city of Gero in Gifu Prefecture is located between the Hida river and mountains. It is the geographical center of Japan. The area abounds with nature. Gero Onsen is joined by two other onsens famous throughout Japan : Kusatsu Onsen in Gunma Prefecture and Arima Onsen in Hyogo Prefecture. It is a great travel destination for more than just excellent quality of the hot spring water.
