The site is small but well protected. Good place to go with onsen trip, can reach there on foot just 15mins walk from the train station.

It is a small village in an atmosphere very characteristic of old gassho houses. The ticket for the entrance was ¥800, and you can visit a museum of a life in a house and its old utensils. a nice walk with family and friends. Calm and peaceful place.

Really great spot to visit while you're in Gero. It's a lot of shops and restaurants inside. There is also a really nice craft shop where the owner will teach you how to make fireworks out of toothpicks. Very fun!

Amazing architecture! The movable frames against strong northern winds are superior wisdom. Informative staff and well preserved huge farmhouses with plenty of appliances. The accessibility from the downtown is great as well. The discount tickets are available at hotels.

Unlike Shirakawa where the thatch houses are working houses, the ones in Gero have been made into museums and it houses antique dolls, documents, tools and equipment showing what was like living in these houses in the old times. At the top of the hill in the village museum, there's a fun slide that's about 180m long. Cost 100yen for a quick ride back to the foot of the hill. There's also a hot water foot bath if you want to rest your feet for a few minutes.
