A 30 minute-ride will take you to Shirakawa-go village, one of the few places in Japan that resisted to the country's modernization.
The old gassho-zukuri (thached-roof) style houses are spotted around this mountain village.
Surrounded by rice paddies, you can breath the atmosphere of old, rural Japan.
Located in a mountainous region that was cut off from the rest of the world for a long period of time, villages like this one subsisted on the cultivation of mulberry trees and the rearing of silkworms.
The large houses with their steeply pitched thatched roofs are some of the very few examples of their kind remaining in Japan.
You will surely be impressed by the contrast of tradition and modernity, when you will get back to Nagoya in the evening.
