  • Want to breathe pure mountain air, admire the magnificent scenery, forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life, immersed in the tranquillity and feel appeasement? Visit the village of Ajnokura in the District of Gokayama, which included on UNESCO's World Heritage list. You will see the unique "gassjodzukuri"-houses with peaked roofs of rice straw. These roofs reminiscent of the folded Palm ("gasco" means folding the hands in prayer). In the village there is a Museum, a visit which is also interesting. The current emperor of Japan, his Majesty Akihito, visited three times Ajnokure. Ajnokura is a centre of production of Japanese rice paper "washi". Visit this village will be unforgettable at any time of the year.
