Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is not a theme park, it’s a real life functioning village listed by UNESCO as a heritage site. Here, the community has retained the traditional architecture of thatched roofs and wooden buildings.

    It’s fun to walk around, eat soba and take photos. There’s dozens of your buses or you can drive yourself.

    I paid a visit to the Miboro Dam-side Park on my way back to Takayama from Shirakawa-go. This is a facility open to the public and operated by J-Power, the government-owned power development company that built the Miboro Dam and the hydroelectricity power station. Gassho-style houses were built in the Shirakawa-go and Gokayama area from the middle of the Edo era (17th century) to around 1930. There were about 300 in the early 20th century, but the number had dwindled to 190 by 1960. One reason was due to some villages being submerged under the Miboro dam built on upstream Shogawa River for hydroelectric power generation completed in 1961. The documentary film run at the museum tells the history of the large local protest against the dam construction, as well as the relocation of two cherry trees from the submerged villages to a car park by the national road at a higher altitude where they continue to bloom in spring. Admission is free.

    Its well worth a look round but unfortunately the exhibits had no English descriptions which was a shame as we would have liked to have learned more, however its worth visiting.
