We did not sleep for too long in the after-breakfast nap - and went out to tour the Shirakawa-go village. We were lucky as it was a bright sunny morning but still quite cold for pakdokter. The surrounding mountains glowed in its autumn leaves colour. Many of the houses in the village retained the original structure of the Gassho-style houses dating back to the 1800's. Some were converted into home-stays, some into cafes and restaurants and some remained as residential homes of its owners.
