Sekirinzan is a sacred site of Okinawa’s ancestral religion in which gods are closely linked to nature. Besides its spiritual importance, the site features a beautiful scenery characterized by peculiar volcanic rock formations. Many hiking paths are maintained on the side, some of them even offering access to people with disabilities. One of the hiking trails leads to an elevated viewpoint with a fantastic view of the northernmost tip of Okinawa island, Cape Hedo. Lower hiking trails lead to enormous Gajimaru trees with many “hanging roots”.

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.
