Not quite a target destination for first time visitors to the country due to its remoteness, but rather a nice place to visit if you happen to be around. In my case it was a trail running event with the registration and finish line set up in Yuya Onsen.
The village is built around the gorgeous Uregawa river (宇連川) with most of its hotels and restaurants facing the water. Prices are quite high, we even drove away to find cheaper food; but the service we received in the Senzankaku Hotel (湯谷観光ホテル泉山閣) was by all means great.
I imagine it would be nice to just walk along the river taking the tiny bridges across, enjoying the small waterfalls and the beautiful surrounding forest. Needless to say, if you stay at a hotel/onsen, satisfaction is guaranteed.
Multiple hiking trails, Horaiji shrine (鳳来寺) and quite a few waterfalls are located in the area.
40 minutes by car or 1h by the Iida line train from Toyohashi.
