Shirakawa isn't exclusively made up of touristy gasshō-zukuri houses, as this wider perspective shows.
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!
Very typical landscape of this area :)
I love it :)

@vu@granby - Wolfgang: Thanks Wolfgang!
I take it farming is going on there too?

@Twelvebit: Yes, like most local Japanese towns, farming was the main industry in the old days, and still continues in this typically small-scale way (this kind of location, up in the mountains, would have been very self-sufficient).
That's a lovely perspective!
