Hida Shokawa-no-Sato is a place where ancient private houses handed down in the Shokawa Village were relocated and preserved. These traditional houses were built in the Yosemuneshiki Irimoya Gasshozukuri style ("joined-hands" hip-and-gable roofs). With the pure, clear stream flowing from the Shokawa River, the Gassho roofs retain the majestic appearance of ancient times. There are invaluable folk materials stored here, so visitors can learn about the climate of that time period.
