Tips By Travelers and Locals

Deep in Shirakawa-go Village, a temple of a mysterious appearance. A main temple, a priest's house and a bell tower all have 'Gassyo (steep roof looking like to put hands flat together in prayer)' structure, and that's the only one in Japan. These buildings with 'Gassyo' pose seem to pray for the village, and the scenery is beautiful beyond comparison.

Registered as a World Cultural Heritage Site, Shirakawa-go Village is popular among not only Japanese but also sightseers from foreign countries. The landscape of beautiful gassho frame (steep roof) houses that also have a function to pass the snowy winter is magnificent in a word.
