This is another special place that I visited thanks to Chihiro San and her mother who took a day to drive us around. I am so thankful for them for being so welcoming and warm to me.
Everyone wants to visit Shirakawago when in the region, Gokayama is also one of those traditional villages, a bit less known, therefore, much less crowded, much more local but equally beautiful.
There are buses from Kanazawa and Toyama to go there in one day and appreciate the scenery, it looks like a perfect postcard in Switzerland! the mountains, the green fields, the rice, the houses so well preserved.
