Shirakawa-go

SHORYUDO
Nestled within the mountains of Gifu prefecture, the gassho-zukuri village with its thatched roofs is registered as a World Heritage site. The entire village is preserved with its rice fields, water channels and forests that tell of the rustic scenery of Japan as it used to be.
