Shirakawa-Go

Travel Photography by Chiat Hau Photography(Shirakawa Heritage Village)


Waking up early in the morning to catch our bus to the Shirakawa Heritage Village and I am glad that the bus operators allowed us to depart early on 10am instead of the 1130am. At least we did not wasted a lot of our time at the bus station. :")

More photos after the jump...

If I remember correctly, the bus journey took like around 1 hour plus. The village in a mountainish area. Reminds me on some of the location I seen in some manga. :"D I am amazed on how big the heritage farm houses are and how all the straws have been assembled to construct into a house. (I think it is way much better than LEGO and some of them have been almost 250 years old.). the environment there is pretty peaceful. We went up the hill to take a rest and enjoy the mountain view. And for Lucas, he has been very amazed with all the fishes in the drain. (Yes, clear moving water with a lot of fishes in there). He keep on peeping into the drainage holes to listen to the sound of the water and see if there is any fishes in there. (Haha). We have stayed overnight in one of the minshuku there. (Nice house owner and their home cook dishes are so so so delicious. I particularly love their dinner) And the granny of the house has perform 2 songs during the dinner session. (A warm hospitality by them) :")
