13 Perfect Winter Wonderlands From Around The World

1. Shirakawa, Japan
You wouldn’t think Japan as the place where it snows the most, but the village of Shirakawa can get up to 30 feet of snow every year. This little village is actually a UNESCO World Heritage site, because of the traditional old architecture. The houses are built in mince style with special collapse-proof roofs, so that no matter how much snowfall they get – the houses and their inhabitants are safe in winter. Clearly the Japanese knew what they were doing, because this village looks absolutely stunning in the winter.
