The style of architecture known as Gassho-zukuri (Japanese architecture with a steep thatched roof) and the townscape of Shirakawa-go are collectively designated as a Cultural World Heritage site. Gassho-zukuri houses are now very rare, with less than 150 left. The site of snow quietly falling on the eaves, adding layers by layer, is like a world of fairy tales.
