Nagano Dentetsu train line from Nagano station to Yudanaka station

Another post for train enthusiasts! Jikokudani is a famous park among Japanese and foreign visitors where one can observe the Japanese snow monkeys (wild Japanese Macaques). Taking the train to go there is an option. From the shinkansen station in Nagano, the Dentetsu (Nagano Electric Railway) train line brings you to Yudanaka station.

Gaijin-San's theater

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.
