Very beautiful village with amazing scenery. Interesting to see and learn about the history of this village. There are souvenirs and foodstuffs sold here. Got to try the ice-cream with sake. The water from the mountain tastes refreshing. Even the water that flows along the drains are crystal clear with big fishes swimming in it. Worth visiting even though crowded

Beautiful scenery.. it has its own beauty in all the seasons but as I am a snow lover I enjoyed it max in winter.. for snow and nature lovers this is best place to visit. But be prepared to face the snow.Plan for winter wear, snow boots and an umbrella in case of snow fall to enjoy at max.

Charming village with rustic and peaceful atmosphere! If you are travelling with baggage, feel free to leave them at the annex building at the Bus Terminal for a small fee to have a great hands free experience! Good to spend 2-3 hours walking around the area and try the delicious Hida-beef!

I'm not interested whether UNESCO designates it or not, but it's well worth having me take a bus in Nagoya and have a six-hour go and return.
You'll see the scenery you've never seen before in your life.
I think it would be nice to stay for a day if possible.

Simply beautiful village with gorgeous houses and architecture. The view from the top of the village is amazing and this is definitely a great tourist destination. Not many food choices but many souvenirs to buy.
