SHIRAKAWA-GO & GOKAYAMA

9d0ccf66d7a5df37db7ab7f5e587e6d88ba17488

Shirakawa-go and Gokayama are neighboring settlements that are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to being the location of the famous traditional gassho-zukuri thatched-roof farmhouses. The special feature of these farmhouses is the slanted roof which is said to resemble the shape hands make when praying. Ogimachi and Ainokura are the well-known villages in Shirakawa-go and Gokayama respectively. The two are not easily accessible making our tours a convenient way to reach these places from major cities.
