Enoshima Shrine, Nakatsunomiya

The Nakatsunomiya shrine is located several minutes passed the Hetsunomiya shrine along the main touristic road of Enoshima island. Visitors can either climb the numerous stairs along the way or use the modern network of underground escalators (for a fee). The Nakatsunomiya shrine is unmistakable for its vivid red color. Although the shrine is built atop the island, it doesn’t offer much of a view. Interestingly, a selfie station is available along the path leading to the shrine, where one can safely place a camera on timer to take a photo of oneself (can you see it in my photo?). If you have more time, I also recommend the Okutsunomiya shrine.

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.
