“The Wada House” is the largest remaining gassho-style house (farmhouse with steep thatched roofs, designed to withstand heavy snow) in the Ogimachi Gassho-Zukuri style farmhouse village, certified as the Important Cultural Property of Japan. Over 300 years have passed since it was constructed, and you can view the insides during the day.

During the light-up periods, the Wada House is lit from two directions, and many tripods are lined up during twilight time, but if you go there about an hour before sunset, you will probably be able to secure a filming spot.
