I’d like to experience catching trout by hand at a place where we can go by rent-a-car within 3 hours from Nagoya. Please find me a hotel with a hot-spring near the river. As a friend of mine had a driving licence, we decided to enjoy driving and go to a mountain. We want to experience catching trout by hand at a place within a 3-hour-drive from Nagoya! Please find for me a hotel near the clean river. As we want to relax after catching trout, I want a hotel with a hot-spring.

How about this type of driving?

Drive from Nagoya to Gujo area. There are many spots where you can catch Ayu-fish along the River Nagara. The weirs are placed from Mino towards the upper reaches. If you have enough time, experience rafting on the River Nagara. From the Gujo city, drive to Gero for 1-1.5 hours over the mountains. Stay at the Hotel “Suimeikan” in the Gero hot-spring. On the following day, after strolling around the Gero town, drive to the River Nakatsu and sightsee the Magomejuku. It is a 2-day-trip.

the bathroom is spacious and clean / the service is wonderful

It is the famous place for Ayu-fish. There is a river with the weirs nearby. It’s convenient to get there by car. The meal is delicious. When you go there all the way, it’s a good idea to stay at a classy hotel and soak yourself in the bath to relax after fishing for Ayu-fish.

This could be good.

My recommendation is the Takayama Green Hotel in the Hida Takayama hot-spring. The River Hida is a crystal clear stream where you can catch Ayu-fish, so it’s better to find the weir near there. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. This hotel is famous not only for the comfortable hot-spring but also for the place for souvenirs. It is idel to finish your trip here after enjoying yourself.

the River Hida and the hotel in Hidatakayama

There is the Ayu-fish weirs around Hidahagiwara along the River Hida. The Green Hotel is large scale with an open-air hot-spring and the meal is delicious. There is a large souvenir corner inside the hotel.
On the following day. Strolling about in the old town in Takayama or visiting the morning market are recommended.

The Ayu-fish from the crystal River Nagara grilled by the chef is outstanding.

The Hotel Gujohachiman along the River Nagara has easy access from the Tokai-Hokuriku Road.
It takes 2 hours from Nagoya. Their open-air hot-spring is outstanding and soaking in this hot-spring surrounded by nature will comfort your fatigue from the trip. You can get more information on the following contact number. Gujohachiman Kanko Weir (Tel: 0575-65-3495). The charge is \1,400 for 2 Ayu-fish per person ( including grilling) At the hotel, the popular play is performed every day as part of their service. It’s quite interesting really.

a lot of fish-weirs!

There are a lot of fish-weirs in the crystal River Nagara near Gujohachiman. Personally, I like the Misugi-kanko wier. At this time of the year, some places are closed for catching Ayu-fish, so please be aware of it. This traditional Japanese-styled hotel has a big bathroom and 4 rooms with open-air hot-springs.

Ayu-fish in Nagoya have to be the River Ibi.

Ayu-fish cuisine in Nagoya reminds me of the River Ibi. There are fish-weirs, so I think there is a facility to catch Ayu-fish. The River Ibi is clean and there are a few shops which serve Ayu-fish from the River Ibi. You can enjoy Ayu-fish cuisine and stay at this hotel. They have a hot-spring with the view of the River Ibi.


Tsukiyodani Fureai no Sato

The Tsukiyodani Fureai no Sato in Ibi-gawa-cho Ibi-gun Gifu-ken is famous for catching Ayu-fish by hands, making buckwheat noodles and making tofu as an experience. This hotel is located near the Tsukiyodani Fureai no Sato. It has Irori (sunken fire-place) and the grilled Ay-fish on the Irori is gorgeous.

good quality

If the purpose of your trip is sightseeing of the cormorant, it is clever to cut down other expenses as much as possible. From that point of view, I recommend the hotel, “Juhachiro”. You can stay there for the cheap charge and it is close to the River Nagara. It is a very convenient location.

You can catch Ayu-fish in the river by hands.

The open-air hot-spring made in the river is very attractive. You can catch Ayu-fish in the river in front of the hotel. You can enjoy strolling on the Kumanokodo. The hotel is dated, but if you choose a western-styled room, you can relax in there with a good view. The Japanese-styled rooms are not recommended. The breakfast as well as the evening meal is buffet-styled. You can have it until you fill yourself up.

the quiet long-established hotel close to the Shiroyama Park

In the Aichi prefecture, there are 3 rivers, such as the River Kiso, the River Nagara and the River Ibi, but when you want to drive to the crystal clean stream where you can enjoy catching Ayu-fish within a 3-hour-drive, I recommend the River Hida. If you want a crystal clear stream along the mountains I think Hidatakayama is better than the Gero hot-spring. And the long-established hot-spring hotel with the Ayu-fish cusine and the wild-pig nabe(pot) has to be the Hotel Hoshokaku.

the hotel with the delicious meal and the hot-spring

You want a 3-hour-drive on a rent car from Nagoya to the place to enjoy catching Ayu-fish, it should be the river Itadori. After enjoying catching Ayu-fish around Doro, you can drive to the hotel which is not far from there. It meets your requirements, I think. The Hotel Sugishima is very comfortable to stay and you can relax in the hot-spring. It is just the right place to forget your troubled daily life, to spend the time leisurely, viewing the stream of the river.

You can catch Ayu-fish in the River Ure, even in November.

It is the weir near the Mikawamakihara station on the Iida-line. It is not far to drive there, as it is the next station. You can enjoy the famous product, the “Senninyaki cuisine” at this hotel, “Suimei”. The hotel has a hot-spring and the clear river is in front of the hotel. You can stay there for under \10,000 per person. I don’t know whether you are a man or a woman, but you’ll be satisfied with everything. That’s for sure.
