Nagoya, is another good spot to explore. It is 45 miles (72 kilometers) from Gero and offers a diverse range of things to do and see, such as Shirakawa Park, Nagoya TV Tower and Nagoya Rainbow Hall.

One of the pleasures of exploring the world's many cultures is learning languages other than your own, so take the time to learn some rudimentary Japanese during your time here. "Isshoni odorimasenka?" is handy. It means "Would you like to dance with me?" You'll find that knowing how to say "Benjo wa doko desu ka?", which means "Where's the toilet?", can really make you look good.
When it's time to head back to your friends at home, you'll be bidding this special place a fond and teary Sayōnara (farewell).
