Explore Japan: Shirakawago

This year just started and immediately i got to tick one destination off my bucket list. I’ve been wanting to go to this beautiful place ever since i saw it in the internet! It’s absolutely adorable in person and i just couldn’t believe I was able to go there.


This is one of Japan’s UNESCO World Heritage sites. They are also one of the few places in Japan that has Gassho Style Houses.

So you can say these types of houses are pretty rare in Japan.

Visit Takayama

For this trip we also got to visit Takayama. It’s one of the places we stopped en route to Shirakawago. It was like Gion in Kyoto. You could also get cool souvenirs around the area and try good food.

Food you should try during the trip?

Hida Beef

Like Kobe, this region has its own specialty meat and it’s Hida Beef. This meat is absolutely to die for. If possible try and eat it as a meal and not just a Yakitori on the streets. Food is truly worth it.

Ice Cream

The ice cream was very delicious, it has a sticky and creamy feel to it. It doesn’t melt because of the cold weather. However only photo I got of the ice cream was me already devouring it.

  • After watching Aladdin. I just want to say thank you to my parents for letting me see the world because of this I can see the similarities in the movie with the places i’ve been to. 
When I was a kid I would not believe that this type of culture would exist, that everything was make believe. There’s no way that houses are shaped like that or no way that people really looked like that. It really is true that everything  seems like a whole new world when you go to a farther country.

  • There was a time when the human race lived like ants. Molded the mountain and created living civilization inside. It was great to experience the inside and to see how it was before.
