Kurobe Dam 2012 (黒部ダム)

The Kurobe Dam is the tallest dam in Japan. The road on top of the dam is open to visitors and offers a truly impressive experience. One can also climb hundreds of stair steps to the observation deck which offer a great view of the dam and the Tate mountain range.

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.
