About the World Heritage Suganuma Gassho-zukuri Village

A 5-minute walk from Gokayama Gassho no Sato
To the World Heritage Suganuma Gassho-zukuri Village

Suganuma Village was designated as a national historic site in 1970 and was selected as an Important Preservation District for Traditional Buildings in 1994.
The gassho-style houses where people live and the surrounding landscape are of high value as traditional settlements.
In December 1995, it was registered as a World Cultural Heritage along with the Aikura Gassho-zukuri Village and the Ogimachi Gassho-zukuri Village in Shirakawa-mura, Gifu Prefecture.

The steeply sloping roof made of gassho is extremely unique for a Japanese private house, and the structure rooted in the harsh climate and climate of Gokayama is highly complete and of academic value.
