Mount Kurofu, fantastic view of Mount Asama

Here it is, my second panorama on GaijinGoJapan! This one is taken again in the beautiful mountains of Nagano prefecture. The main feature of the panorama is Mount Asama, a volcano which is still quite active to this date. The last eruption occurred in 2009 and threw rocks up to 1km above the summit! Thankfully the mountain was very quiet on the day of our climb! (The 1783 eruption completely destroyed the village of Kanbara where the Onioshidashi park is now located.)

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.
