Shirakawago's 白川村farmhouses
Shirakawago's 白川村farmhouses

The main reason for the steep roofs and massive structure of Shirakawago's 白川村farmhouses is the large amount of snow the region receives every winter. Ogimachi Village typically gets covered by one to two meters of snow during the peak of the white season. While causing the locals quite a bit of hardship, the snow turns Shirakawago into an idyllic winter landscape. To make it even better, the village organizes special illumination events on selected Saturday and Sunday evenings in January and February that attract plenty of tourists.
