Shirakami sanchi is world heritage in Japan, Aomori Prefecture.

Matagi Huts and Charcoal Making Huts

Long ago in Shirakami-Sanchi there lived the `Matagi` people, who lived through bear hunting, and also people who made a living selling charcoal.

The Matagi huts and charcoal making huts they used are reconstructed along the course of Nishimeya Village`s Takanosu Nature Trail, so you can catch a glimpse of their former way of life.
