A hot spring inn with 180 years of history
The allure of Yamagataya
Yamagataya features a brand of hospitality nurtured over the course of many years, and offers the perfect space for relaxation.
Yamagataya welcomes guests with the healing powers of Gero's well-known hot spring, and the local specialties of Hida.
Get your fill of the Hida kaiseki cuisine we pour our passion into, and bathe basking in the glorious views we like to boast of as you restore both body and mind.
Yamagataya is located in Gero Onsen,
one of the three great hot springs in Japan.
A characteristic Japanese atmosphere accompanies some wonderful sightseeing opportunities.
Gero Onsen has a long history dating back to the Edo period as a therapeutic spa resort. Along with Gero's very Japanese hot spring town, traditional sightseeing spots such as the "Gassho no Sato" village dotted with authentically thatched houses make for fun, culturally immersive, visits.
Indulge in carefully selected
Among its many highlights, Yamagataya is proud of its richly colored, beautiful cuisine employing ingredients from the rich, fertile lands of Gero in South Hida, combined with handpicked ingredients from other regions. We cook with real passion, picturing our guests' satisfaction at the end of their meal.
