Suwa Grand Shrine in the evening (suwa-taisha,諏訪大社)

Just before going to see the fireworks in Kamisuwa, we visited the Suwa Grand Shrine before the sunset. Because of the darkness, and a light rain, the site was really empty and we could truly enjoy the serenity of the sacred site.

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.
