Why is Inari, the god of rice, so widely celebrated in Japan? In ancient times, rice was the main food sustaining people. To this day, it has remained a central element of Japanese cuisine 🍙 Even though rice consumption has been declining over the past decades, its consumption per capita is still estimated at more than 80 kilos per year in the country! . As the role of agriculture in Japan’s economy diminished, ancestral deities took on new patronages. While remaining primarily the god of rice and agriculture, Inari is now also worshipped as the patron of business by manufacturers and merchants. This way, people not only pray for bountiful harvests, but also for business prosperity and, more generally, for the safety of their household and their loved ones. 🎋 .

What better way to end the Japan series than to post a picture of the emblematic Mount Fuji? 🗻 We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of this national symbol on our way back from Kobe to Tokyo on the Shinkansen on the last day of our trip. Even from such a distance, Mount Fuji looked majestic enshrouded in clouds. . A beloved staple amongst locals and tourists alike, Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan, standing at 3,776 metres. It is considered an active volcano, even though it has been dormant since the last time it erupted in 1707 🌋 Famous for its almost perfectly symmetrical cone, Mount Fuji has been a source of inspiration for many Japanese artists throughout the centuries and often appears not only in works of art, but also on mainstream items and consumption goods. In 2013, it was added to the World Heritage List as a cultural site. . With a bit of luck, you could manage to see Mount Fuji from Tokyo, from where it is visible on clear days 🤍 .

I love how rich and diverse Japanese cuisine is. Before visiting the country, I knew very little about widespread national dishes and naively thought that sushi was the most beloved one. In two weeks, I got the chance to try many delicacies, one of them being omurice (picture 1). A very popular dish, omurice is a fusion of French omelette and Japanese fried rice 🍳 I had mine in Rakeru, a chain restaurant specialising in this dish and offering many variations. Highly recommended! . Picture 2 was taken in a maid café in Chiyoda. I wouldn’t recommend the place for the food quality, as it tasted quite blend, but rather for the crazy atmosphere you’ll find there. I won’t say too much not to ruin the surprise, but I’ll tell you this: be prepared to meow (yes, you read that correctly) to get the waitress’s attention 😸 . Picture 3 reminds me of a great morning spent at the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. If you like seafood, it probably is one of the best places to taste fresh and delicious produce 🦐 If you’re more into meat, you’ll probably want to try the worldwide famous Kobe beef (picture 4). As I don’t eat meat, I let @marc_eder_official do the testing. He said it was the best he had in his entire life! . Finally, okonomiyaki was my favourite food discovery (picture 5). To put it simply, it is kind of a savoury pancake that can be cooked with pretty much any ingredient you like as a topping. We went to the Sometaro restaurant, which boasts a recipe dating back to 1937! The atmosphere inside was so cosy and the staff was adorable 🥰 .

The Fushimi Inari Shrine probably was one of the spots I enjoyed the most in Kyoto, as it is such a symbolic and magical place ✨ The hike up to Mount Inari can take up to a couple of hours but it is worth it: the higher you go, the fewer people there is. . Multiple small shrines featuring miniature torii gates, fox statues and incense, line the path to the top. They provide quiet, peaceful bubbles and offer a welcome break in the middle of the hike. A must-see, in my opinion, if you want to take in the spiritual atmosphere of the place 🎋 .

Before we left Japan, we went back to Tokyo briefly. Tokyo at night truly is a mesmerising sight ✨ I would highly recommend you to wander the capital’s different districts past sunset to get the fill Tokyo experience! . Aside from the famous districts you always hear about, like Shinjuku and Shibuya, I particularly enjoyed exploring Chiyoda, Tokyo’s central district. Contrarily to what you could expect, it is not that busy once cultural sites are closed for the night and you easily get a glimpse of what living in this city feels like to the locals 🌃 .

Byōdō-in is a Buddhist temple located in the city of Uji, in the Kyoto prefecture. Originally built in 998 as a rural villa for a high-ranking courtier, it was turned into a Buddhist temple by his son half a century later. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the temple is considered a national jewel ✨ . Byōdō-in is particularly famous for its main hall, the only part remaining from the original construction. In the 17th century, people started calling the hall the “Phoenix Hall” because of its distinctive structure. Seen from the front, it resembles the legendary animal spreading its wings. Completing the thematic, two phoenix sculptures are set on the rooftop. .

Tried to go for a kawaii pose in front of the Byōdō-in... Not sure it worked; my brother just told me I looked weird 😅 . Fun fact about the temple: every person who’s been to Japan has seen it, albeit in miniature size, without necessarily noticing. Indeed, the temple is featured on the obverse side of 10-yen coins! . Even though the Byōdō-in itself is magnificent, the grounds are just as beautiful. I particularly enjoyed the pond on which the building stands, rendered all the more charming when it is covered with cherry blossom petals 🌸 .

As the Japan series draws to an end, I couldn’t help posting one last picture of sakura 🌸 I guess it is clear by now that I was completely obsessed with these beautiful flowers throughout my trip! . I probably have a couple hundred pictures of cherry blossoms on my phone (not even kidding 🙈). By the end of our two-week trip, my boyfriend had run out of patience with me stopping every time we came across a sakura tree. But, judging by this shot, I would say it was worth it! Don’t you agree? 😉 .

I had a meeting at the museum today. It's high time for me to get on with the next step regarding future capacity of work. I know I won't be able to work full time ever again and frankly I'm not interested in doing so. But I am interested in finding out my personal percentage, in finding peace towards functioning in this society (where I apparently have chosen to incarnate) and getting my foundation moulded. I need to build on something, around something. I'm moving forward. ✨ I often think of us highly sensitive people as trailblazers. On a collective level we are here to push development in a more fair and humble direction. It's not always easy to remember this or to stand our ground. However I choose to believe this is the way forward, for me and for a softer international community. We need to not get stuck in a victim role, we need to heal ourselves and to take up our space. We need to be. So step aside patriarchy, here comes balance 🦋
