This village is a must if you are anywhere in the Alps of Japan. It is entirely walk able and it the roofs of the home are designed to survive the heavy winters in the area. We were there a full day with a guide and I highly recommend you visit the area with someone knowledgeable about the area. It rained the entire time we were there and it gave the village and my photos the look I wanted to capture.

One of the World Heritage sites where thatched village is preserved for future generations. Actual homes, museums, restaurants & gift shops. Amazing & architecturally beautiful. Temple with the bell tower is in the back portion of the area. Can be easily walked but a bit more challenging for those in wheelchairs but it can be done

Very scenic destination. A real community living there but some buildings are open for touring. Good for strolling around and gift shops. Some people had audio toys but unclear where they got them. They would be worthwhile in a place like this.

This place is a must see. Authentic and traditional. The views are super beautiful and you can just take pictures to your heart's content. Or you can sit back and relax while savoring the beautiful scenic view all around you. ^^
