Juhachiro is a traditional Japanese-style hotel (“Ryokan” in Japanese)
located in Gifu Prefecture, the geographical center of Japan.
Mt. Kinka stands high in the center of Gifu City.
Gifu Castle, where samurai warriors who were governing Japan used to live,
is at the top of the mountain. Established in the town below this castle on the banks of the Nagara River, Juhachiro has more than 150 years of history. As a place to provide relaxation to tourists, Juhachiro continues to carve its name into the history books.
Since its establishment, Juhachiro endeavours to be a hotel liked by everyone. By placing importance on the relationship with each guest, Juhachiro has gained recognition and has received various awards such as the “Great Service Ryokan and Hotel Prize” from JTB, one of the largest travel agents in Japan.
