Arashiyama bamboo forest

Arashiyama makes a perfect day trip from Kyoto. The place is especially renowned for its bamboo grove. At only a short walking distance from the train station, the bamboo forest will enchant you. A hiking and biking path cuts through the forest of straight bamboo trees that sway gently with the wind and gently filters the sunlight, providing a relief from the intensely warm Japanese summer days.

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
