The Kyu Asakura house, built in 1919, is an historic house that survived the disasters of the Great Kanto Earthquake and the Second World War. The house is open as a museum to visitors and offers a unique feel of the Taisho era. The Mansion integrates beautifully with the garden and landscape rocks.

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.
