A truly magical and peaceful traditional village of thatched roof houses kept in the traditional style. Of interest is that despite this being a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is still a working and living village. The signs of modern life dotted around the old buildings merely adds to its charm. Whilst in the area, go up to the village proper and have soba for lunch and pick up some fresh tofu for lunch.
