  • It is a village of gassho-zukuri in the place where there is a lot of nature left. Anyway, it is a word that I want you to see. I feel like I've time tripped a long time!!

  • Because it is larger than Suganuma village, there are many tourists. There is a guide of the recommended spot in the village, but on the contrary, is it OK to pass through the front door so much? I was sorry. That said, it's still simple.
