Set amid quintessentially Japanese landscape, Shirakawa-mura consists of 16 quaint villages, including a historic village of farm houses, now designated a World Heritage Site. The distinctive wooden buildings have been designed with sheer, sloping thatched roofs, so as not to allow a thick build-up of snow during the winter. Said to appear like hands clasped in prayer, the scene of the homes against the backdrop of rice paddies, cherry blossoms, and forested mountains looks like a painting from the feudal era, with few concessions--apart from all the tourists--to the modern world. Shirakawa-mura is in Ono-gun. Plan your vacation with our Japan trip itinerary maker site and discover the best things to do in Shirakawa-mura.
