Sagi no Ashiyu Footbath鷺の足湯
This was Gero Onsen's first footbath. The name derives from a 700-year-old legend of a white crane (sagi) that descended on the spot, letting the villagers know where the hot spring welled up. The cypress wood footbath is across from Kaeru Shrine, on a street lined with restaurants and old-style inns. The clean facility can accommodate five people sitting side-by-side, relaxing and easing their fatigue away. It's just a simple bath, bench, and a roof, but as it's right next to the central parking lot, someone always seems to be there.

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.
