The Korakuen is a little gem in the heart of Tokyo. One would not suspect that such a peaceful place exists right next to the famous Tokyo Dome where baseball matches are played in Tokyo. It was quite gloomy when we visited the garden but we really enjoyed the experience nonetheless. I imagine it may be even better when the sun shines.

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.
