The Gassho-zukuri Village of Ainokura

ー 相倉合掌造り集落 ー

Ainokura village retains the historical landscape of Gokayama and the original Gassho-zukuri architecture in homes of varying sizes and a thatched-roof temple. People still live in this historical village, which is rare among World Heritage Sites. Many of the exceptional museums, souvenir shops, restaurants, and inns in the area are built in the Gassho-zukuri style. Relax your body and mind in the tranquil mountain scenery.
