Take a trip to Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri Minkaen, an open-air museum with traditional farmhouses, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The iconic design of the wooden houses, said to resemble hands clasped together in prayer, developed so as to keep the snow off during the winter months. In a mountainous rural area where the design still dominates, the museum gives visitors the chance to see inside the farmhouses, as well as learning about traditional agricultural methods and the lifestyle of farmers and their families.

Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri Minkaen Reviews
高速を降りて５分位で到着。朝ごはんを食べていなかったので、入ってすぐのご飯屋さんが食べてくれれば観光の間駐車無料で良いと言ってくれたのでそこに停めて観光に行きました。こんなに沢山の合掌造りの建物がある所は初めてだったので世界遺産だし見に行って良かったです。 more »We got off the highway and arrived in about five minutes. I didn't eat breakfast, so i stopped there and went sightseeing because he told me that if the rice shop of the morning would eat it, it would be free to park during the sightseeing. It was a World Heritage Site and it was good to go to see it because it was the first time that there were a lot of buildings of the joint palm construction.
Uno dei villaggi siti unesco meraviglioso! Tutto perfettamente conservato e accogliente per il visitatore Una vera chicca scoperta a caso more »One of the wonderful unesco sites villages! All perfectly preserved and welcoming for the visitor A real gem discovered at random
Very scenic and lovely little village, by going into some of the houses, one can really feel and history and stories from all those generations that lived there. Good for photography. Dress warmly.
Definitely a sight to see. Just as the tour guide mention, you get the gist of most of the gassho house here. Most of which are accessible to public. The place where they sell ice cream and red bean soup has a old style fireplace. Smoky but a must see.
