It was beautiful experience, really enjoyed our stay in Yunoshimakan: nice staff, authentic interior, Haute japanese cuisine was a bit unusual but also delicious. Oncen was just great, calming and nurturing atmosphere. Loved everything! I was there in Jan 2015 and would like to come back:-)

Stayed here for one night in March with family. I was able to get a pretty good deal from its homepage on limited-day-discounts (it's always good to book 30 or 60 days in advance to take advantage of early bird discounts as well), which allowed the four of us to have two rooms that came with private baths for about...

We'd stayed at Yunoshimakan - Sanrakuso room on 8 Mar 2017. Hotel facilities and the onsen were great as another reviews said. But the dinner (Kaiseki) service was so poor! After Hida steak dish, the waitress leaved us, we waited until the next dish that was fish on the hot rocks for about 30min. The fish that should be hot...

One of the best amount the numerous ryokan stayed in Japan. Historical building (UNSECO) with extension, best on-sen. On top of the hill overlooking Gero. The meal was also excellent. Definitely stay again in the next visit. Also walked to take excellent pictures of the autumn leaves at night, at the temple below.

Amazing architecture, rich Japanese history and experience. Parts of the hotel are super old though and could use some update. Food and service was average. The setting, location, and onsen was the best in the world.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yunoshimakan is a long-standing ryokan (Japanese-style inn) in Gero Onsen. The ryokan was established in 1931 and has had the honor of accommodating the previous Emperor Showa and the current Emperor Akihito. The more than 80-years-old wooden structure in a traditional sukiya-style took three years to be built by artisans of Hida, who are local artisans famous for their skillful techniques. The building is designated as a National Tangible Cultural Asset. Since the hotel stands in the great forest, each room commands a view of natural beauty. Guests here can experience the real Japan by staying at this historical main building surrounded by nature. Our ryokan is the best choice for those who want to touch and sample the ambience of real Japan. ... more   less
