Hidden up in the mountains of Gifu, Japan, there is a village filled with many beautiful houses. It is called Shirakawa-Go. During winter, these houses are covered in snow and looks exactly like ginger bread houses on a christmas cake.
These traditional houses has a special roof that resembles praying hands and are therefore called gasshō-zukuri. This design is exceptionally strong and, in combination with the unique properties of the thatching, allow the houses to withstand and shed the weight of the region’s heavy snowfalls in winter. Gassho-zukuri settlements are registered as cultural heritage sites.
