The Kenrokuen garden is one of the three most famous Japanese gardens. The garden was designed to reflect the desire of the feudal lord Maeda, the second largest local lord after the Tokugawa shogunate. The 5th lord Maeda started the construction in 1676. It was expanded to the present largeness by the generations of the lord Maeda.
Shirakawago village was designated as UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. There are 60 Gassho farmhouses in the village. These houses are still used by the owner families for their daily living. Gassho house has big slanted roofs, which are thatched with Japanese panpas grass called "Susuki". Some Gassho houses are over 200 years old.
