Gasshō-zukuri are the traditional houses found in the area, famous for their steep, pointed, thatched roofs.
I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
They look by far much better in winter, they suddenly get colours and textures and substance! This is a very beautiful shot that nmade me wonder first...thought it was a painting!

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela. I would love to stay here in deepest winter, to see everything covered with snow. I wonder what life must be like at that time?
Beautiful picture at winter time. I love those old houses.
Sorry if you had an other page when trying to watch my new blog. It was replaced by my host but everything is OK now.
