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.

This grand old ryokan should be managed far better. From the entrance area that requires incoming guests (even the elderly) to balance on one foot as they take off winter lace up footwear and change into slippery ill fitting plastic slippers, to the beat up looking rooms and the

This was our tenth trip to Japan. We always stay most nights with relatives and sleep on tatami 99% of the time. The twin bed option was actually a treat. Our server/maid Tae-san was very nice. We have been to many onsen ryokan and I think the main feature of Yunoshimakan is

The easiest way is probably to take a train from Takayama to Gero. Trains run quite frequently and the journey takes less than an hour. A one-way ticket costs 970 yen. Do arrange for pick up with the hotel when you make your reservation because it is perched at the top of a hill. The driver will meet you as you exit the train station. You can even send you bags up with him first and catch a later ride to the hotel after exploring the town and eating lunch.

Thank you for sending a question to us. Our spa opens for non- staying guest between 1:00pm~2:00pm everyday. It costs 1,000YEN per person. We will give you a small towel. Sometimes we may have sudden maintenance, so it will be better for you to call us or send an email to make sure on the day you come. ※Our hotel will close between 15th June to 21st June. We are looking forward to seeing you.

"There is a free shuttle bus from the train station to the hotel but inform the reception prior your arrival"
"Try to get a room that faces down the mountain."
"I would go for the cheapest room option - impressive enough!"
"Shunkeiso is certainly the most beautiful room."
