Hida, TakayamaShirakawa-go part 2

Overview

The design of Japanese authentic architecture known as Gassho-zukuri (house with a steep roof) and the townscape of Shirakawa-go are collectively designated as a Cultural World Heritage site. Gassho-zukuri houses are now very rare, with less than 150 left. The site of snow quietly falling on the eaves, adding layers by layer, is like a world of fairy tales.
