Mount Mushikura (虫倉山)

Mount Mushikura is located in Nagano prefecture, slightly West of the town of Nagano. Its name stands for crowded (kura) with insects (mushi). Fortunately, at the time of our ascent (28 of April 2013), there were no bugs bothering us. The only living being we saw were cute salamanders in a nearby stream.

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.
