The Shinkansen Platform

Taking the Shinkansen is always an exciting adventure for me. I have to admit I’m somewhat of a train enthusiast. Not that I know all trains by their technical names, I simply enjoy the ride and in the case of the Shinkansen, the speed. Waiting for the Shinkansen on the platform, I like to look around, observing station employees, people waiting for their trains, and wondering where they are heading.

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.
