Tenshukaku Observatory (天守閣展望台)
Although the heavy rain and angry skies were persistent throughout the entire day….I arrived at the observatory that overlooks the beautiful Ogimachi Village in Shirakawa-go. Here, it is where they have Gassho Zukuri which are the thatched roofed farmhouses. Shirakawa-go is a popular place to visit as it’s known to have one of the most scenic and amazing historic views in Japan. In the distance you get to see the snow-capped mountain tops. I absolutely loved the view so much!! I can only imagine how beautiful it would be during other seasons like winter where it’s covered in thick snow.
