Tenryu-ji Temple

The Tenryu-ji temple is without a doubt one of the landmarks of Arashiyama district and Kyoto’s region. The temple’s history, which is now listed as a world heritage, dates back to 1339. However, due to fires and natural hazards, most of the buildings were rebuilt about a hundred years ago or so. Its sumptuous gardens, on the other hand, are known to survive in their original form. The garden features a charming pond facing the temple and a sumptuous bamboo grove.

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.
