The observation area at Shiroyama castle keep is one of the best places to overlook the gassho style houses gathered below in the settlement of Ogi-machi.


The Wada residence, with its massively distinctive gassho style gables, sits in the center of the scene, surrounded by seasonal nature. The quiet atmosphere of Ogi-machi gives visitors the impression of gazing out over a fairy tale landscape. This point gives a slightly different sense of the landscape than that at Ogi-machi Castle Ruin Observation Area.
