House In Gokayama

House In Gokayama (Toyama)

Many traditional houses stood in the village

Shot in the village of Gokayama, Toyama. The traditional house in the photo was built of thatch. All the houses in this village had a thatched roof and this village was regarded as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And these architectures attract many tourists now.

I thought the old house was picturesque and nice to see from the outside. Yet it might be inconvenient to live in the houses. The renovation of the thatched roof was onerous duties. For that reason alone, the locals could experience inconvenience.
