::: JK Fun ::: Annual Light Up Event of The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go! 2017 Event Schedule Released!!


30th Annual Shirakawa-go Illumination Display Event 2017

A must-see night view once in your life

Located in the remote part of Gifu Prefecture, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is famous for their traditional triangular thatched rooftop houses. Since the village has become a hot spot for visitors, most of the houses are used as shops, restaurants and hotels now. However, it is still a good place to visit if you want to see some Japanese traditional farmhouses.

Address: Shirakawago, Ohno District, Gifu Prefecture

30th Annual Shirakawa-go Illumination Display Event 2017

Every year, the Shirakawa-go Illumination Display Organizing Committee decorates the village with lights. The night view of this traditional village is spectacular!
