Shiramine Jyuuyou Dentouteki Kenzoubutsu Hozonchiku

This is a village in the upper reaches of the Tedori River and located in small river terraces between the Tedori River and the Omitsudan River. This area receives more than four meters of snowfall and sericulture (silk production) has been the main industry since long ago. A unique architectural style, with walls made of mud which can keep the indoor temperature stable, was created, thus the architecture of bygone days remains visible even now.
