This attraction is located at the edge of the town. It took less than twenty minutes walk from the centre. The road is by a stream and the pedestrian walk disappear gradually. The only concern was it's all the way up hill. The temperature also drops gradually the closer you were to the attraction. The site is relatively large with... More

This place is worth visiting. It reminds me of the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii, only smaller. It is a self-walking cultural experience that takes you back in time to how people once lived in Japan. We only had a few hours to enjoy this historic treasure and loved every minute of it. There is a variety of activities that... More

This village is much more than an open air walk around Gassho houses. Unlike other Gasshomura's we've visited, these have volunteer guides (only Japanese spoken), a shadow play theater, good places to eat and a novel slide (100 yen) that gets you down from the peak of the village to the bottom.

Once you arrive here and go past the entrance, you will be transported to a whole new world. It was truly historic with beautiful music being played. There's a free foot bath, free hand bath, and free exhibitions. When we so amazed and this was the highlight of our trip. For less than $10, it's so worth it.

Gero Onsen Gassho Mura is a beautiful traditional village that gives you a look at Gifu's famous Gassho Zukuri (合掌造り) houses in an open-museum setting. We visited during the koyo (autumn colours) season in Japan and the village was ablaze in colour. The beautiful autumn colours complimented the traditional thatched roof houses beautifully. The village is quite small, so you... More

This is a very beautiful gassho village. We walked from the township to the village. It took us about 15 minutes or so (I guess). You can also take the bus if you wish to. We love walking during winter time, so we did not feel tired at all. It was almost closing time by the time we arrived so,... More

Beautiful place with gardens of nice flowers, and they have traditional Japanese’s houses around. Exhibits of traditional tools, and other items on display. How silk was produce in the past. The life style of the folk’s way back then. Interesting place! Cheers! See Pics!
