Miyama is a small village, located in North Kyoto, where are a famous historic thatched house village in Japan. (Three of major thatched house village are Shirakawago, Oouchijyuku and this Miyama in Japan.) This area is a preservation districts for groups of historic buildings. When I visited, it was so hot that I suddenly went to the ship for something drink, but in the winter it snows hard. I guess it will be very beautiful the contrast old houses and snow-white. If I could, I had come again.
