ToyamaAinokura Gassho-style Village

Overview

One step inside Gokayama Ainokura Gassho-style Village and the beautiful, nostalgic surroundings will make you will feel as though you have fallen through time to ancient Japan. Although great to visit during the day time, the light-up display held each season is simply too good to miss! The observation area, where one can look down across the beauty of Aikura in its entirety makes for a great shot. Houses with thatched roofs known as “gassho-style” are an extremely rare form of dwelling which can only be seen in this part of Japan.
