Enoshima’s West Side

A little piece of paradise on earth, that is what is waiting for you on Enoshima island! I think the western side of Enoshima is the nicest: it is more secluded and more tranquil than the east which has a more touristic feeling too it. In contrast, the west side gave me the feeling that time had slowed down. I was also struck by the beauty of Enoshima’s nature. After a long day under the sun, we decided to have a rest in a restaurant along the main street. We ate some Asari (Japanese seashell), probably taken in the local waters. While Ayako had Umeshu (Japanese plum wine) I tried for the first time a delicious Enoshima beer! And did I mention that the terrace offers a view of mount Fuji? It does!

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.
