SHIRAKAWAGO & GOKAYAMA

Shirakwago is located far from major cities, which makes it difficult to get to. Make a detailed schedule how to travel to Shirakawago in advance before arriving in Japan.

Shirakawa-go
Shirakawa-go has been the name of the place since before the Edo Period. Shirakawa-go and Gokayama’s Suganuma and Ainokura were all registered together as the World Heritage Site in 1995 for “The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go and Gokayama.”


Gokayama
Gokayama was recognized as a World Heritage Site with Shirakawa-go at the same time. Surrounded by the mountains in the quiet environment, “The Gokayama gasso-style house village” has been called “Hidden Place.” The quaint view of the traditional gassho-style houses is stretching out in Gokayama.
