Meiji Shrine with friends (Meiji Jingū,明治神宮)

The Meiji Jingu shrine, located in the heart of Tokyo, is dedicated to emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. There we met some long time friends of Ayako for a short visit of the shrine. The trip included a visit to a sacred well, which is known to make you famous if you put its picture on your cell phone, so there may be a line of Japanese waiting to take a shot!

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.
