JAPAN 下呂溫泉 DSC_0700

下呂温泉(げろおんせん)は、岐阜県下呂市(旧飛騨国益田郡)にある温泉。林羅山が有馬温泉・草津温泉とともに、日本三名泉に数えた(ただし、当時は下呂ではなく湯島と表記)ことから、「日本三名泉」と称されている。

 

Gero (下呂市 Gero-shi?) is a city in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. The city is famous for its hot springs. The Hida River runs throughout the city.

Gero's major industry is tourism. It is known throughout Japan for its hot springs known as Onsen, leading many tourists to visit the area each year. Forestry and agriculture also play significant roles in the local economy. Gero has many hotels that can be visited by guests that are looking for accommodations near the hot springs. Large tubs are located in some hotels allowing couples to bathe together. Some hotels lend yukatas to the couples. It's not unusual to see people wearing yukatas on the streets of Gero and even in some stores. Besides those in hotels, there are many inexpensive and convenient onsens located near railway stations, residential areas, and commercial centers up and down the valley.
