Sensoji Temple (Kinryū-zan Sensō-ji,金龍山浅草寺)

I am always amazed by the quietness of Senso-ji temple at night in stark contrast to the crowds of tourists during daytime. The buildings of the temple are well lit and provide a surreal atmosphere. Since the construction of Tokyo Skytree is completed, we can observe a dramatic contrast of tradition and modernity in Asakusa.

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.
