Chuzenji Lake (chūzenji-ko,中禅寺湖)

The Chuzenji Lake was created by the eruption of Mount Nantai which blocked and flooded the river. There are many resorts and hotels along the shore of the lake. Nearby sites include the Futara Shrine and the Kegon Waterfalls.

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.
