  • Is a Buddhist temple located in Shirakawa-go. The tower gate of thatched-roof stood out from a distance. And look closely near the Bell Tower Gates became the joinery. Take a peek inside from the Bell Tower gates and saw rafter roof of the main building. Bell Tower and main building and even harmony, felt very quaint. He was also made under large Ginkgo trees and thatched roof a good accent, like the one picture beautiful landscape.

Hondo's thatched roof yew, was completed over the course of 20 years. Little 面食raimasu no and type like normal Temple in front of the peel and gable roof. Do not read from the side and no confirmation of gasshou-zukuri (T_T);; Kuri is the largest thatched roof, Shirakawa village. The Museum paid, from is into the main hall.
