Gasshozukuri Minka En
After we went over the long suspension bridge called “Deai-bashi“, we took a little break at a cafe near by Gasshozukuri Minka En which was our final destination on this trip. By the time we went into this park, the rain has started coming down pretty hard again. It seems to be very unfortunate situation for normal cases but we really enjoyed being there because almost no one was around. At one point, three of us went all separate ways to look around, and I noticed that it was just me and mountains in the rain. It was almost surreal standing there and listening to the rain falling, because I felt like I time traveled back to that period.
One thought on “DAY 3 – Gasshozukuri Minka En 合掌造り民家園”
Loved this village, again, in the heavy snow style. Aside from the soul enriching view, one thing that struck me as particularly cool is the little house with a moat around it that was used for families who’s home had suffered a fire or other damage to the extent they could not live in it. In that case they would get to stay in this little quaint, but cool little “house” while the village rebuilds their home together. So cool to have such a supportive community! Those were the days! (I think most villages at some time around the world were the same.)
