This is one of the most beautiful places I've visited in Japan. It really is a World Heritage Place. The nostalgia of ancient Japan is all around this place. Most of the houses are being used as shops. There is all kinds of shops, from souvenir to restaurants. And all have very great souvenir as well.

We had an amazing time here. A great vacation spot with your friends and family. This is a white city covered with snow. The old huts is the view spot. Climb up the road to get an aerial view of this beautiful village. There is also a convenience store. But carry your food if you can't eat pork or beef. For vegetarians and vegans it's a little difficult to find lunch. Try going to the convenience store for fruits and bread in case. Hida beef is the local cuisine and you get a really good taste of it.

(02/2020) such and unforgettable experience. This place is magical, simply stroll around the village and you’ll feel amazed for every steps. worth to visit for one day trip. Getting an overnight stay in this place during winter might be torturing (for me) cause too cold (of course)

Fascinating example of traditional houses. Keep an eye out for the rainbow trout in the weirs! Awesome use of an irrigation system. The hike up and down the hills to the viewing platform is worth it too.

I have heard that the village is most beautiful at winter season. I have been to the village in autumn season. The village is famous for its houses whose roof is made of straw and hay. Since there is not much tour guidance in the village, your trip to the village would be interesting if you read about it in advance
