Last Sunday, I invited a Touhou fan to go for a drive to Touhou Pilgrimage in Suwa district, Nagano. My French comrade @THakkai is a website master of Touhou.net and I heard that he is a big fan of the Touhou character 洩矢諏訪子 Moriya Suwako. So I felt sure that it'll be a great time for him to visit her place while he stays in Japan. Twas terribly cold on that day but we had a really pleasant short trip around Suwa Taisha Shrines and Suwa-ko 諏訪湖 lake... sounds like her name Suwako 諏訪子^^;;;. This time, we made the pilgrimage by reference to this useful webpage "Suwa Grand Shrine – A Touhou Pilgrimage « Moé Passion". This blog is highly recommended for foreign otakus who plan anime pilgrimages in Japan.

Suwa Taisha - Honmiya shrine. Here is the head shrine of Suwa Taisha (there are four shrines around Suwa district).

Suwa Taisha - Akimiya shrine. I guess here is familiar among Touhou gamers.

Spotted my fave monster BAKU "the Dream Eater" on the pillar of Akimiya shrine. Awesome artworks just like WonFes figures^^
