About this sight

In December 1995, this village was registered as an UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Visitors can see thatched-roof (gassho-zukuri-style) houses here, examples of an old Japanese farmhouse style. Gokayama Village houses 23 Gassho-style houses, many of which are 100 to 200 years old. The oldest ones are said to have been built 400 years ago.
