Shirakawago is recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site because of its cultural and historical significance. It is a famous place to visit because of the traditional style of its farmhouses. Some of the houses are more than 200 years old; when you walk around the area, you’ll get a feel of what life was like during that time. The homes’ roofs look like hands praying.

A visit to this quaint village is good year-round. However, the best time to go is in winter, when the houses are covered in snow.

Entrance Fee: Free as long as you don’t enter certain spots
