Shirakawa (白川村, Shirakawa-mura?) is a village located in Gifu Prefecture, Japan.

It is best known for being the site of Shirakawa-gō (白川郷, Shirakawa-gō?), a small, traditional village showcasing a style of buildings called gasshō-zukuri.

As of April 1, 2004 the village has an estimated population of 1,933 and a density of 5.4 persons per km². The total area is 356.55 km².

It is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. One of the snowiest places in Japan, 95.7% of Shirakawa is covered by forests.

This town was used as the setting for the anime series, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni under the name 'Hinamizawa' (雛見沢).

I hope I'll have the opportunity to go there someday =)
The place seems to be under construction... & the dam is still built ><

I still have alot of qns for the village =.="
- R there anyone residing in the characters' hses?
- Do they celebrate the Watanagashi festival?
- Does the dam war exist?
- Does Rena's garbage dump place exist?
- Is Higurashi's story plot of any relation to the village besides being the setting?
- Is there realli a torture chamber in Sonozaki hse?
- Is the Shion's restaurant, hospital & sch still servicing?
- Is there a Higurashi museum or smth?

Hmm so I assume the creator went into all these hses before? xD
How did he get the idea of the characters & the Hinamizawa Syndrome? O.O


Here's the official site for the village (Japanese): http://www.vill.shirakawa.gifu.jp/

^I heard the people who live there hate Higurashi because it caused many unwanted tourists to come and ask those questions and that bothered them. xP

We got it from the anime. Hinamizawa isn't a real place, but it's based on one.

i think i need a translation. i recognised the school and rika's house though.
i couldn't really recognise anything else cos i didn't watch Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. i only watched Kai (ep15 onwards) >.<

EDIT: almost forgot about Irie clinic =P
