Murakamike House (村上家)

Historical Monument

Murakamike house stands out even in Gokayama which is famous for Gassho style houses. It is a representative building that doesn’t remodel the style of olden days, and it even now conveys the architectural style of yesteryear to people of the present. It has also been designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan. There are a lot of folklore materials on display in this building which boasts a history dating back 400 years, and at the irori fire pit, you can hear an account by the present head of the house. There are snow camellia named “Gokayama Iris” in the garden, and the best time to come and see them is from late April until early May.

          Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
