    "An aquarium that's part of the Takumi no Yakata Museum. It's in a traditional farmhouse built in 1882 by Kawajiri Jisuke, a master carpenter in the Hida lineage. Recreating a rich riparian environment, the aquarium has about 3,000 freshwater fish. These include large iwana char that are no longer found in Hida, nearly extinct kajika, and roughly one-meter long Sakhalin taimen. You can also experience garra rufa, also known as ""doctor fish,"" that eat dead skin."

    まず、中を案内され 1人/500円を徴収。JAFカードで1人/450円になります。 コーヒーor麦茶がついてきます。 中の建物を見て、昔の風景のジオラマを見て、馬のコウキくんと少しふれあい、外の水族館を案内されます。 外の水族館だけというのは、無理なようです。 馬のコウキくんは、お手? (笑)とか出来てしつけられてます。 とても可愛いです。時間的には、30分くらいで見終わってしまう感じですね。

Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
