You will find unexpected fun through my articles!
I went to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gokayama Ainokura Village in Toyama Prefecture.
Gokayama Aikokura village
This is a famous gassho-zukuri ( steep thatched roof)village, which was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, along with Shirakawa-go village in Gifu Prefecture.
The village still preserves the mountain village life of common people.
These houses structured for sericulture, paper making, and nitroglycerin production.
Unlike Shirakawa-go, Aikura village is close to the mountains, and the mountain scenery and the gassho-zukuri houses can be seen together.
In June, just as the rice is being planted, the paddy fields and gassho-style houses are beautifully matched.
Why don’t you visit Gokayama Ainokura Village during the rainy season?
A little further away is Suganuma Village, another World Heritage Site, which is located in the open mountains and is also beautiful.
You can enjoy an ancient Japanese atmosphere that you cannot experience in a big city.
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
