Located in beautiful shirakwago village, this house is a museum with artifacts showing how the local people lived. Need to pay an entry fee though not much worth since the landscape offers so much more

Wada House is part of the Shirakawa-go village. Get the map from information counter & it can explore by walking from Shirakawa-go bus station. Suggested to bring umbrella as there is limited shelter.

Paid 300 yen per person to visit this place . Though the interior and the upper floors are quite nice, in terms of price-saving ratio , the other houses are worth more of your one and money as they offer more than this house but...More

Our tour visited this house. While the downstairs was rather bare, the upstairs was wonderful. We could see the inner details of the roof's construction and there was an exhibit on the growing and harvesting of silkworms. Very interesting.

It was absolutely interesting to visit one of the straw roof houses. Stairs to the 2/F is steep and narrow. Be careful when walking down if you are wearing socks as it might be slippery. Floor area upstairs is spacious.

The second floor with the exhibition of silk product in house attics was interesting, as well as the house in general.

Nice site to visit to understand how these grasso houses are built. In Wada you can see the interior and experience the life. Visitors can climb up the 2 floors of the house and view the strong structures.
