Enjoy winter in Shirakawa-go, Japan

If you want to enjoy wintertime somewhere far away and secluded, head to Shirakawa-go in Japan. This village has beautiful thatched-roof gassho-zukuri buildings. These structures are a big reason the village was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995.  The stoves that heat these paper-walled structures give out an aromatic scent that is simply magical.
