Shirakawa-go Farmhouses at Winter

Deep in the valley of Northern Japan Alps lies this mountain village where farmhouses have equilateral triangle thatched roof. This traditional house design known as gassho-style allows snow to slide off easily from the roof.


To access the Shirakawa-go village is to cross this footbridge

Winter is so beautiful in this village
