Some of Japan’s oldest traditional villages are very popular among foreign tourists. This slide video introduces Gokamura (Toyama Prefecture), Kakunodate (Akita Prefecture), and Shirakawa-go (Gifu Prefecture). When visiting Gokamura and Shirakawa-go from areas on the Sea of Japan side, you can also take a boat on the Shogawa River, as seen in this video. A cruise on the Shogawa River during the snowy season is quite spectacular!
