白川郷

Shirakawa-go

“Shirakawa-go” in Gifu Prefecture is the village where old thatched houses called “Gassho-zukuri” stand side by side. Old Japanese country-styled houses rare at present day, still remain there.

This place has become a world heritage, and tourists from foreign countries come to visit.

Since colorful leaves are beautiful in Autumn, you should try to take a walk enjoying Japanese scenery.

There is a hot spring and a souvenir shop as well.

“Gassho-zukuri” with a thatched roof has a steep angled roof.
The reason is because there is crazy snow in Winter so you prevent getting the house smashed by snow’s heaviness.

“Shriakawa-go” loaded with snow in the winter season is beautiful as well.

岐阜県にある「白川郷」は、古い「合掌造り」と呼ばれる茅葺き屋根の家が並ぶ集落です。
現代では珍しい、日本の田舎の古い家が残っています。
こちらは世界遺産になり、海外からの観光客も来ます。
秋には紅葉が美しく、日本の昔の風景を楽しみながら
散策するといいでしょう。
温泉や土産物店もあります。
茅葺き屋根の合掌造りというのは、屋根が急勾配です。
冬は雪がすごいので、雪の重みで家が潰されないように
するためです。
雪が積もった冬の白川郷もきれいです。
