2017.5.11-14 Ainokura “Gassho Reflection” Light-Up (UNESCO World Heritage)
On May 11th through May 14th from sunset to 9 PM. Folk song and dance performances are held on the 12th, 13th, and 14th.
Come see the light-up event at UNESCO World Heritage Site Gokayama’s Ainokura Village! The gassho “prayer hands” architecture of the houses always carry the magic of a fairy tale, but the atmosphere is enhanced by their reflection in the still water of the rice paddies. Local folk songs and dances will also be performed on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the light-up, so don’t miss this chance to see the beautiful and mysterious local culture of Gokayama!
