I like to visit Japanese temples, rain or shine. Bad weather allows you to see things through a different light. It adds many little details to the overall experience. From water dripping off the roofs, statues and vegetation to the sound of wind going through trees and buildings. There is also less people, so you can visit at your pace, fast or slowly. I prefer the later since I tend to stop and take photos here and there. A very “Zen” experience!
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. View all posts by Gaijin San
