Gero is a city in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. The city is famous for its hot springs. The Hida River runs throughout the city.As of July 2011, the city has an estimated population of 35,906 and a population density of 42 persons per km². The total area is 851.06 km².HistoryThe modern city of Gero was established on March 1, 2004, from the merger of the former town of Gero, absorbing the towns of Hagiwara, Kanayama and Osaka, and the village of Maze (all from Mashita District).IndustryGero's major industry is tourism. It is known throughout Japan for its hot springs known as Onsen, leading many tourists to visit the area each year. Forestry and agriculture also play significant roles in the local economy. Gero has many hotels that can be visited by guests that are looking for accommodations near the hot springs. Large tubs are located in some hotels allowing couples to bathe together. Some hotels lend yukatas to the couples. It's not unusual to see people wearing yukatas on the streets of Gero and even in some stores. Besides those in hotels, there are many inexpensive and convenient onsens located near railway stations, residential areas, and commercial centers up and down the valley.
