The god of success, good fortune, business and mariage is enshrined at the Kumano shrine in Kawagoe. Visitors to Kumano can purify themselves by washing their coins in a special fountain. The most peculiar feature is perhaps the small passage leading to the shrine whose sides are covered by round stones. Those who venture on this path barefoot are in for a good massage!
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
