I loved Suganuma although it is quite small. Gassho house museum was interesting where I could learn about people's life at Gassho house and how they used to make gun powder in the bast at the village.

The houses are small, village is small, but unique architecture. Two small museums costs 300JPY to enter both of them. People here are really friendly, and proud of the village. Scenery in snow is very beautiful.

Awesome place. It is a small village that is self sufficient, showcasing picturesque houses with foliage and hills providing the backdrop. "Take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the treasures of the town" is one good advice by the travel tour. Don't rush, go at a...More

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....More
