Shirakawa-go Day Tours

shirakawaThe remoteness and inaccessibility of Shiriakawa-go, has kept the village unspoiled and well-preserved for centuries. This area of steep thatched-roved farmhouses gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1995. The people of these gassho-style, or “praying hands” style farmhouses were cut off from the rest of the world for a long period of time and survived the harsh winters through the cultivation of mulberry trees and the rearing of silkworms. With its old Japan atmosphere, Shirakawa-go is beautiful anytime of year but particularly so in autumn and winter. Enjoy a full day private tour visiting both these ancient must see attractions.
