Hakuba in Summer

Hakuba is a famous ski resort of the Northern Japanese Alps in Nagano prefecture. In 1998, the ski competitions of the Nagano Olympics were held at the Hakuba ski resort. Other than ski in winter, the Hakuba resort offers a magnificent mountain scenery with famous mountains such as the Kashima-Yarigatake and mount Yarigatake. It can serve as an elevated starting point to some serious hikes in the Northern Japanese Alps.

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.
