Fire prevention in the World Heritage Village
We would like to thank you for coming to Shirakawa-go from all over the world.
The Gassho-style House is a symbol of the World Heritage Site of Shirakawa-go village, and because of the construction material, it is not easy to preserve. In this village, the fire prevention equipment management and fire prevention patrols are organized and carried out by the villagers themselves three times a day to remind everyone of fire prevention.
We hope that you will also help us to protect Shirakawa-go by paying attention to the following points.
- Fireworks are strictly prohibited in the World Heritage Village.
- Please smoke in the designated smoking area (including electronic cigarettes) in the World Heritage Village.
※Please put your cigarette ends into the receptacle provided.
