See Remnants of Japan’s History Through Gassho-Zukuri Architecture at the World Heritage Site of Gokayama in Toyama Prefecture

Gokayama is located in Nanto City, Toyama Prefecture, and is home to two gassho-zukuri settlements, Ainokura and Suganuma.
“Gassho-zukuri” is the name of a historically valuable and unique type of architecture with pitched roofs that are similar in shape to hands clasped in prayer. Gassho-zukuri settlements can only be found in these snowy and mountainous areas. The Gokayama Settlement and Gifu Prefecture’s Shirakawa-go were registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1995.

The first Omu-rice in Japan!  “Hokkyokusei Shinsaibashi main branch” established in Osaka in 1922!

This restaurant is located in the Shinsaibashi area of Osaka near Dotonbori. There is a section of Shinsaibashi called Amerika-Mura. It is a trendy area for the young generation. In Amerika-Mura there is a traditional Japanese house that captures everyone`s eyes.
It is Osaka’s well known restaurant “Hokkyokusei”. This restaurant was established in 1922.
Hokkyokusei is an Omu-rice speciality shop with more than 10 locations in department stores throughout Osaka.
I went to eat lunch at the Hokkyokusei Shinsaibashi main branch.
