The Gion district is one of the best places to see Geisha and Maiko. On this particular visit, I did not see any Geisha on the street so I made my way to the Yasaka Shrine. This area of Kyoto is well known for its nightlife with restaurants and Izakayas.
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. View all posts by Gaijin San
