Shirakawago Shiroyama Observatory Deck, Shirakawa-mura

(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Obtain a panoramic view of a UNESCO-protected village from Shirakawago Shiroyama Observatory Deck. Take the 15-20 minute walk uphill from the historic village, or simply take the shuttle bus to reach the observation area. From this vantage point you can truly appreciate the mountainous scenery and the 114 thatched-roof homes that make up the village. The quiet, quaint village, dwarfed by the mountains that surround it, has photogenic appeal, with its homes shaped like hands in prayer, a river running through town, and adjacent rice paddies.

  • 從白川聚落走上來不用花很多的時間,路途沒有很長,天氣好的時候在這邊可以拍出美美的照片,可惜我去的時候沒有下雪,不然景色會更加的美麗。這邊也有公車可以從山下搭上來喔!有些路段有管制期間要特別注意喔! 
  • 听说这里一年掌灯的次数也不多,所以许多当地人也会来这里观赏景象。当真是人挤人。之后又下起了雨,所以早早的就走了,没能看到著名的景观,真是一个遗憾,希望下次来的时候可以补上。 
  • It is a spectacular spot overlooking the entire village, and to the heights of the Shirakawa-go. Visit Shirakawa-go up here and enjoy the superb view we recommend the.
