InformationInformation

The Gassho style house was built around 1827 by carpenters from Noto. The 14 meters tall, four-story house is the biggest Gassho style house in Shirakawa-go. The house has a ground floor and three upper floors within the large roof. The first floor was used as living space, and the second through the fourth floors were used for sericulture. The people in this area traditionally had a large family, and Toyama family, which was also a large family of tens of people, lived in the big house until the Meiji period (1868 - 1912). The house was designated as an Important National Cultural Asset in 1971.
