World Heritage Site Gokayama Winter Illuminations
The World Heritage Site of Gokayama is lit up with decorative winter illuminations. Suganuma Village and Iwase Residence, the largest of the gassho-style houses, have a breathtaking beauty. While gazing at the picturesque landscape of illuminated gassho-style houses surrounded by snow, it is easy to find yourself briefly forgetting about the time. Suganuma Village features gourmet favourites including handmade soba (buckwheat noodles) and salt-grilled char, and Gokayama folk songs such as Kokiriko and Toichinsa will be showcased in Iwase Residence, allowing visitors to experience the charm of Gokayama with all five senses.
