Walking in Gion during Sakura (cherry blossoms) season (祇園)

During the Cherry Blossom (Sakura) season in Japan, many Japanese wander the street to enjoy the scenery, creating a very interesting atmosphere. For this photo session, I used one of my favourite technique, walking randomly in the streets until some scene catches my attention. Observing what the locals do, and joining them is an interesting cultural experience. Several shots were taken while sitting, fully relaxed, along the banks of the river.

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.
