This village is between the world famous Shirakawago and well known Ainokura. If you do visit Shirakawago and Ainokura by car I do recommend a visit to this small but very nice village. There is about ten very well maintained Gassoho houses in the village. One of the houses had maintenance work in progress to change the roof. It can... More

We went to lunch in a house at Suganuma village in Gokayama as part of a tour. We took an elevator from the parking area and walked through a tunnel to reach the village. Without such facilities, the houses must have been quite remote. The enormous Edo-period houses have sharply pointed roofs insulated with straw so the heavy snow will... More

This is one of the 3 main gasho-style villages in the area. It's 9 houses (vs more than a 100 in Shirakawa-go), so it's much less busy with crowds and feels very traditional. Well worth the extra miles to get there! Breathtaking views of the Shogawa River and surrounding mountains

There are two little villages that are separated by a bridge. There are 3 museums that can be visited on the villages. While interesting to see, there is no information on any western language.

We stopped by Suganuma Village on our way leaving Gokayama. Our first reaction is that the village is really quite small, featuring nine gassho houses. Again, we did not go into any of the houses, so we were done walking the site in less than 20 minutes. I recall there was one shop open, and many of the cafes were... More

We visited here in May 2014. This place was not in our plan but we just plan one day before. It's raining when we arrived. We found the house to shelter. This house look like souvenir shop but it's small restaurant. We had lunch here and ordered udon and tempura. It's delicious. We spent about 1 hr to walk around... More
