Gassho Mura (Village) is a touristic attraction in Gero which features traditional Japanese farmhouses that were moved to Gero and preserved as a museum, recreating a typical mountain village of the old days. The Gassho houses feature a steep triangular roof made of dried vegetation. In addition to the traditional Japanese farmhouse, the village also features beautiful gardens.
Gero, located in Gifu prefecture, is one of the famous hot spring towns of Japan. Its proximity to Takayama allows to practically combine the two destinations in an overnight trip from Nagoya. Many hotels in Gero offer the typical Japanese onsen experience: comfortable hotel rooms and relaxing japanese hot bath.
