Shirakawa-Go Winter #5
A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, Shirakawa-go is home to some well preserved “gassho-zukuri” farmhouses, some of which dates back to the 1800s.
Gassho-zukuri means “constructed like hands of prayer”, as the steep thatched roofs resembles the hands of Buddhist monks pressed together in prayer. Also popularly known as 合掌屋 in chinese.
Quaint, charming, old-fashioned and definitely beautiful.
