Unlike the mega-onsen you see on the hillsides as you enter Gero, Mutsumikan is a small family owned and operated onsen, located within easy walking distance from the train station. It is also very close to Gero town and its shops and restaurants. The facilities were nice and clean and when you enter the onsen, the smell of the sulphur and the heat of the water confirms this is the real thing. The dinner with the upgraded meal plan which included Hida Beef was very good. But the best is the personal interest the staff and management took in its guests. Mr. Saito can respond to email inquiries in english so that was a great help in confirming our reservations and noting the changes in our arrival schedule. It is an excellent value.
