Kyoto Station

Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, abounds with historical landmarks but its main train station is far from anything ancient. The station was built in 1997 and is definitely futuristic by its architectural design. The station deserves the Tokaido Shinkansen line and many of the subway lines of Kyoto. A large number of hotels surround the station which is also located next to a large Isetan shopping mall. Don’t forget to visit the Ramen floor where one can choose among 8 Ramen restaurants!

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.
