A whimsical retreat
where nature and people meet
Shirakawa-go is all about nature.
The life there is gentle,
but sometimes bitter,
and above all, simple.
Come discover the blessings of nature.
Mushrooms, wild vegetabes,
tree nuts, and river fishes await you.
The mountains are our fields.
Blessed with nature’s gifts.
This is the ancestral land
With the tastes of each season gifted.
Step away from the everyday life,
and you will catch
a glimpse of our lives.
Immerse yourself in this village,
and it will embrace your weary heart.
Welcome to our whimsical retreat
where nature and people meet.
