郡上八幡の古い街並み（Gujo Hachiman no Furui Machinami ）
Get a feel for the local lifestyle through the beautiful water and vibrant dancing in the streets of this old castle town!
While walking the ancient streets of Shokunin-machi and Kajiya-machi, which were named as such because they were where the city’s local craftsmen and blacksmiths had been concentrated, one can enjoy seeing stunning canals running along the old homes of this breathtaking old district.
The houses of Yanagimachi retain the distinct flavor of an ancient samurai village, and are distinguished by the winged wall that separates one house from another. Visitors can get a feel for the local lifestyle, the essence of which has remained unchanged since the Edo period.
