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.

  • Free of charge (stands for photo) gave to my shooting with my camera. Here was a great shoot spots present Shirakawa-go Gassho village with a panoramic view in the old of ogimachi Castle Tower ruins. Thus watch and Kyoto Miyama-no-Sato condition both size... much difference there... This is by far the most on. Climbing the Cup was people coming down here dare climb from the ground a steep trail, but I just, and? Fairly and in a steep stone jests,... so 10 minutes or 20 minutes is hard on the elderly. Better climb loose paving away even from the other side of the village, was can arrive comfortably. Karahori ogimachi Castle in the middle of the trail (trail) instead or the soil is found and submitted. Originally, this village's and the village of Heike spring. Castle to see like what little remains.

Recommend a visit here first if you see that they didn't have enough time. Lookouts from the municipal parking lot in a car 10 minutes, parking and dining facilities; Climb on foot from town and quite recommended to visit by car and tourist shuttle bus so hard.
