Visiting Nikko (日光市)

This short clip first shows some scenes of the trip from Tokyo to Niko on the Tobu Nikko line. It then explores the surroundings of the Nikko Tobu station and moves on to the most popular historical monuments of Nikko, the Nikko Tosho-gu temple, the Futarasan shrine and the Taiyu-in mausoleum. After a hot day, nothing is better than a Kakigori, those iced-shaving Japanese desserts!

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.

  1. J’aime beaucoup tes videos Patrick: bonnes transitions, bon choix de thèmes et de musique. Peux-tu me dire quel instrument on entend? Je crois que c’est un instrument traditionnel japonais, c’est très beau.
