Great view of this village. Not directly the modern Japan I had in mind!

A mix of styles?

@Twelvebit: Yes, you can see how the gasshō-zukuri houses survive amongst more modern housing styles (not sure if this means there were more gasshō-zukuri before, or that there were simply less houses around before. I'm sure some old-style houses must have been destroyed over time though...).
