Gokayama is a place of precipitous mountains and deep valleys located in the southeastern part of Toyama. The houses in the area are built in the style called ‘gassho-zukuri’ and have three or four floors. The steep roofs are at 60 degrees to prevent snow building up on them, and no nails are used in the construction of these houses & the site were designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
