Ironically, while writing on the Kankakei Gorge, I have no good photos of the gorge, which was quite impressive but the view of Shodoshima from the summit was really worth the trip by itself. There was some stormy weather coming on us while on the summit so we couldn’t safely take the cable-car back down. Instead, the transport company shuttled us down in a minivan at no additional fee, that’s Japanese service!
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. View all posts by Gaijin San
