About this sight

Shirakawa-go is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its villages with traditional Gassho-zukuri houses. These are large wooden houses built with thatched roofs, which are made especially to withstand the weight of the large amounts of snow that fall here in the winter. A short hike up to an observation platform reveals a stunning view of the valley.
