Suganuma Gassho-zukuri Village (世界遺産 菅沼合掌造り集落)

Historical Monument

A small village surrounded by a riverbed on three sides in Suganuma, Nanto City, Toyama Prefecture. The village consists of nine gassho-zukuri style homes with steep thatched roofs as well as old earthen-walled storehouses and other structures surrounded by rural scenery. Here visitors can get a taste of old Japan. There’s a museum where you can learn about the history and traditions of Gokayama and come in contact with the harsh climate of the area and the simple lifestyles of the people who live here. The village is registered as part of the Ainokura Gassho-style Village World Heritage Site. The buildings of the village are also lit up differently each season at night.

          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.
