We love walking during winter time, so we did not feel tired at all. It was almost closing time by the time we arrived so,... More

Beautiful place with gardens of nice flowers, and they have traditional Japanese’s houses around. Exhibits of traditional tools, and other items on display. How silk was produce in the past. The life style of the folk’s way back then. Interesting place! Cheers! See Pics!

They have Shadow Plays three times a day and they're worth going to for the 300 yen/person. The rest of the village is quaint. We enjoyed it.

Best place we went on our trip to Japan this time, we went during April so there were still a little snow left but just enough for us to play with. The surroundings were mountains also covered in little snow which made a great view, I think winter would be the best time to go because the village would be... More

Ignore anything about an uphill walk being a problem, this village's position gives you an amazing walk through the town along the river (when coming from the station). The village is full of different important cultural buildings, art works, experiences, etc. There's a lot here, we almost ran out of time in our visit!

It may take 15-20 min walk to this. It was a bit up-hill walk. But, still feeling comfortable. There are around 10 houses. We could walk inside and see its architecture. They were well furnished. There are shops and restaurants. We could easily spend 2-3 hours here. In some of the houses, there are some old man serving hot tea,... More

As bad weather and heavy rain did not permit us to visit Shirakawa-go Village in North Gifu, Gasshomura was the second best option to see the traditional palm house. Here exhibited 10 houses, all were built by timber, ropes and straw without a single nail. Among them, the most special one was Ohido-ke house, a 13 meters tall big house... More

A real glimpse of how life was in traditional times. These were tough people who came up with interesting ideas to survive the freezing winters. It is a living museum.

The reconstructed houses in this historic village provide a very interesting insight into the traditional way of life in this mountainous area. They are furnished with original furniture and farming implements and well demonstrate how tough life must have been in the old days.
