I have been preaching the good gospel of Japan love since the days of Koizumi.    I used to take dates  and students on Yasukuni Shrine tours back in my early days here.    I was the one who put three fourths of Japan's natural preserves on the map.   I taught the world about the “Jukujo” and Japanese sake love, and about the balance between hot spas, sexy matures, and sake.   
Now, the beauty of the Jukujo motherland is in distress.    The horrid COVID19.   The pandemic is here now and it’s the Japanese mans fault for not protecting the motherland.   It’s the Japanese man’s fault for not being man enough to be proactive enough.   Now, my Japanese Jukujo Sex Moms are at risk - my lactating Queens.  At  Risk of extinction.  The eradication of an entire species.

The soul of Japan has  evolved into an old blog from  an old fogy man-baby with a young soul.  This blog has evolved…Did I just say that?...   At any rate, I’ve sown seeds folks. No one knows the hand that planted those trees.   I’m an old foggy fogy….man. ( clearing my throat)

In this post: I will cover one  tropical island, some food, and one Japanese sake.  And maybe a little lore. So let's get down to business....


What is sake, again?   => It's called "nihonshu" and it's a drink that has been infused in almost every aspect of Japanese culture and tradition for thousands of years!   The very essence of this drink is considered "divine" here in Japan. It is the balance of water, rice, and koji that gives it its vibe. Then it's bringing these 3 elements together to create the perfect drink.
