In this issue, we will introduce in detail the charm, location, room features, and cuisine of this Kaiseki inn Suihoen in Gifu Prefecture.
Kaiseki Inn Suihoen Location
Kaiseki Inn Suihouen is located about 60 minutes from the Nakatsugawa IC of the Chuo Expressway via R257, and is a quiet inn nestled on a hill.
The former Oto Family Residence, located a 5-minute walk from the inn, is a sightseeing facility with 10 gassho-zukuri private homes, including a nationally designated Important Tangible Folk Cultural Property that was relocated from the World Heritage Site of Shirakawa-go.
The house was dismantled and relocated for preservation and exhibition during the construction of the Mimogai Dam, located south of Shirakawa-go Village, and is a valuable gassho-zukuri building.
Not far from the park is “Yunomachi Amejo Park,” a spacious park on both sides of the Atano Valley.
With a well-maintained promenade, it is the perfect place for a leisurely stroll!
The Atano Valley, which extends upstream of the Atano Valley and runs through the center of the park, is a clear stream flowing from the foot of the mountains in Gero.
Visitors can enjoy the colors of the season, take a walk while listening to the murmuring of the river, or enjoy playing in the water in summer.
A short walk away is the Gero Onsen Museum, one of the few museums in Japan that specializes in hot springs and introduces hot springs from both a scientific and cultural perspective.
The museum is filled with exhibits that anyone can enjoy and learn about in an easy-to-understand manner.
There is also a footbath, so it is a good idea to stop by to enjoy the desire to walk as well.
