  • Gokayama Onsen
    Toyama Nanto-shi Tamukai 333-1
    Alongside Shirakawa-go, Gokayama is one of the few places in Japan where traditional thatched roof houses stand en masse, and these structures were designated a World Heritage Site in 1995. The Gokayama Onsen hot spring district encompasses an inn where novelist Ryotaro Shiba stayed as well as the Iwase-ke, a huge thatched roof home open to tourists. The waters of the area's sulfate springs are said to treat ailments such as nerve pain and muscle soreness, in addition to preventing post-bath chills. Area destinations such as the Gokayama Folk Museum, Lake Katsura, and the thatched roof homes of the villages of Suganuma and Ainokura provide more than enough things to see and do, but visitors can also enjoy hot spring bathing together with seasonal picturesque scenery, too. Gokayama visitors can also find short classes where they can try handmade Japanese washi paper making, pottery painting, harie paper patch painting, and Gokayama tofu making.
