The Wada House is the largest Gassho-zukuri house in Shirakawa-go village. The floor runs 25 meters wide and 13 meters deep and the house has well-preserved gardens and hedges. The rice fields and streams around the house are also kept in a good shape. The main building, storehouses, and toilet are designated as cultural properties. Old tools which have been used here are exhibited so you can imagine the traditional lifestyle of Japan from them. People still live here even after the house was built 300 years ago.
