Togakushi shrine : Middle shrine (Chu-Sha)

The Togakushi middle shrine (Chu-Sha) enshrines the God of wisdom. Among the Togakushi shrines, it is located in the midway between the lower and upper shrines. All of the Togakushi shrines, which are about two kilometers apart, are connected via hiking trails and roads.

The middle shrine is located above a pleasant town where the culinary speciality of Nagano prefecture, buckwheat noodles (soba), may be enjoyed at the local restaurant. It is especially recommended as a light and refreshing meal after a long and hot summer day!

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.
