Town of Dazaifu

The street leading from Dazaifu train station to the Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine is lined with gift shops, cafes, ice cream stores and bakeries preparing the Umegae Mochi, which are treats made of sweet azuki bean filling wrapped in a layer of mochi. Some coupons exchangeable for Umegae Mochi were included in our train passes on our day trip to Dazaifu so we got to sample this delicacy which is famous in the region of Dazaifu while walking towards the shrine.

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.
