Fujiyoshida Fire Festival

The Fujiyoshida fire festival is held every year to appease the goddess of Mt. Fuji and prevent the volcano of erupting in the following year. It also marks the end of the season for climbing Mount Fuji. During the festival, huge torches are burnt in the middle of the street.

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.
