Kanda House (神田家)

4.0

Historical Monument

This old private house with a gassho-zukuri sloping roof was built in the late Edo period (around 1850). It's approximately seven minutes on foot from the Shirakawa-go Bus Terminal. It belonged to the Kanda family who brewed sake in Shirakawa-go. Because of the layout and the many handprints from the carpenters on the roof trusses, it's considered an outstanding example of gassho-zukuri slope roofed architecture. The fire in the traditional irori hearth burns year-round, and you can enjoy homemade wild herb tea brewed with water heated over it in an iron kettle. Looking around the rest of the building is fine too, and you can bring your pet with you if you hold it. Reservations are recommended.

Review of Kanda house

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/11/08 Best house to visit from the 3
Was told by our guide that this is the best house to visit from the 3 available for tourists. Wasnt crowded and I could get to all 4 floors. Though its a bit too hot inside since they burnt fires...
Reviewed:2019/08/22 Fascinating for the whole family
It’s like walking back in time this place is packed with nostalgia, my kid loves climbing the ladders and walking on the planks, I loved the photogenic views from the windows. Really worth it.
Reviewed:2019/06/04 Good house to visit in Shriakawa-go
We chose to explore this house when we visited Shirakawa-go and think it was a good choice. It was not nearly as crowded as the Wada House and some of the others but had many interesting displays...

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
