Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri

The gassho-zukuri (合掌造) style minka houses have vast roofs. The name gassho zukuri comes from the similarity of the roof shape to two hands in prayer.

Shirakawago, Japan

Not all of Shirakawago’s thatch-roof buildings are for the locals to live in (and rent out to tourists). This one, much smaller than the rest, appeared to be a storage shed and/or workshop.

P1090493 shirakawago

It’s photos like this one that ultimately pushed me into purchasing a DSLR (less than a year later) and shooting primarily in RAW mode. The sky was not white. It was bright, but if I could go back in a time machine and shoot this with my D750 now it would look so much better.
