【Toyama】Gokayama's Autumn Colors & folk songs

Listen to the Gokayama folk music under the beautiful autumn colors     
UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Ainokura Gassho-zukuri Village and Suganuma Gassho-zukuri Village are both situated in the area known as Gokayama. The area boasts a Japanese rural landscape that remains largely unchanged. The Gokayama folk music and dance were passed down over generations and are now considered important intangible cultural assets. Specifically, “Mugiya-bushi” and ”Kokiriko-bushi” are two of the three main traditional songs of Toyama Prefecture. Every fall, locals to this day dance to “Mugiya-bushi” and “Kokiriko-bushi” in both Shimonashi and Kaminashi.
