View Over Shirakawa-go 3

Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 3 March 2010 in Landscape & Rural.

I'd love to go back here again when it's completely covered in snow in the winter. It always looks so beautiful in photographs I've seen. I think it would be a great experience to see this view, covered in white.

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!

Alun from cheshire, United Kingdom

I think the dusting gives the best of both worlds . .but, yes, would be nice to see the full covering, too !

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

I agree completely. It's beautiful now but would be great with lots of snow.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

So are you going back to Japan?

@Twelvebit: On holidays for sure, as we will visit my wife's family (regularly, I hope). To live...? Can't see that happening the way things are, with my wife and I putting our efforts into trying to build a life here. I would dearly love to still live in Japan though.

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Nice view from above. I have never been there and the pictures that I have seen where showing only few traditional houses.

@akarui: Thanks Olivier. A pleasant place; I'd like to see more of the region, there are other parts with gasshō-zukuri houses.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

I totally agree with you! But....since moving to Japan and living in the Tokyo-Yokohama area I'm no longer willing to bear the cold and snows of winter!

@Japanalia: Well, I guess living through the winter is different to visiting it!
