I just want to post some pictures during our R&R last January when we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. We spent it at Yunoshimakan in Gero, Gifu prefecture. Customer service, food, and accomdations were great. Our room had a great view of the mountains and main building rooftops. The whole place was very quiet and I felt like we were on a time slip because the fixtures and architecture were very old.

Our room cost 18000 yen a night (check-in at 2 pm and check-out at 11 the following morning) which included dinner of kaiseki ryori consisting of hida beef.

For the uninitiated, bathing in hot springs requires one to take off all clothing! Definitely not for the prude since there are also other bathers in the public baths. This is actually my first time to bravely get naked in front of strangers. After a while I got the hang of it. There are private baths for families and couples aside from the public baths. We particularly enjoyed bathing in the warm waters of the rotenburo (open air bath) so much while the snow was falling. It was such a wonderful experience.
