Oze national park

The Oze National park, which is located not too far from Tokyo, stretches across four prefectures: Gunma, Fukushima, Niigata and Tochigi. The park is famous for its large marshland surrounded by mountains. To protect its fragile vegetation from human traffic, the park features an extensive network of boardwalks which makes for a easy hike and allows one to access areas of the wetland when you would otherwise be knee-deep in the water. Many mountain huts are scatered arounf the park for a pleasant overnight stay. Sleeping quarters consist of private tatami rooms with futons. All huts serve a warm dinner and most of them have public warm baths.

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.
