Shirakawago Shiroyama Observatory Deck, Shirakawa-mura

(4.6/5 based on 480+ 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.
