Hokusai Museum

The Hokusai museum in Obuse is dedicated to the famous Japanese artist and painter Katsushika Hokusai.

Among Hokusai’s most popular work is his series of painting titled “Thirty Six Views of Mount Fuji”. Indeed the artist developed a fascination for Japan’s iconic mountain.

Hokusai made a long stay in Obuse near the end of his life, where he was hosted by his local benefactor and apprentice, Obuse’s rich merchant Takai Kozan.

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.
