Sefa Utaki

Sefa Utaki is a historical sacred site that was once one of the most sacred place of worship for Ryukyu people. It is apparently where the goddess of creation came down to Earth. The sacred site is kept in a natural state. Many walking paths lead to impressive rock formations through the dense forest.

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.
