    Village of Gassho, five-this mountain is Yi Estate village of the world. This much smaller than the near White River, but I likes this village. Here there was no Shirakawa then look no further, we cool and beautiful port, Plaza level 較 low, the House looks really old in the future, still lives here. People without a lot, can walk leisurely four-finish enjoy the scenery.
