Founded more than 160 years ago

Standing in front of the Nagara River since the Edo period

The small ryokan 'Yamamotoya' located in gifu-minato-machi changed its name to 'Juhachiro' in 1860, and it experienced 5 eras in Japanese history. It is said that the origin of the name given by the ancestors is that Matsuo Basho left a masterpiece 'Juhachiro-no-ki' when he was staying in Gifu. The master at that time decided to adopt the name 'Juhachiro' that praised Gifu, as an honor to the region. It is our mission to inherit the passion of the master who tried to hand down the honor of the region 160 years ago, and to welcome you with the spirit of traditional hospitality.
