Gero and Nakasendo

下呂温泉と中山道
下呂温泉湯之島館、築84年木造三階建ての本館と昭和の和洋折衷の建物は複雑に入り組んでどこか迷い込んでしまいそうで一人でいると不気味な感じもする。
そこから南東に車で一時間の所に旧中山道の妻籠宿、馬籠宿がある。特に妻籠宿は江戸時代の景観が良く残り人がまばらだとまた不思議な感じである。

Gero-onsen Yunoshimakan is the Onsen (spa) Ryoka (Japanese style hotel), the 84 years old wooden three-storey main building and the semi European Japanese style building are intricately connected. Some what spooky and feeling of getting lost in the maze when you walk around after the Bath.

Head to south east, one hour by car from Gero, there are Tsumagojyuku and Magomejyuku, the old post station towns of the old Nakasen-do, (do is way).
Especaily Tsumagojyuku has kept the buildings very well, and the scenic from Edo period.
