Feel the Coolness of the Blueness: Japan's vast marine preserves.

Summer is usually at its peak in August in Japan with many Japanese returning home to be with extended family, friends, and relatives.  It's almost impossible to get around by car with traffic and packed trains. Many locals stay within greater Tokyo to enjoy the festivities.  Perhaps the most exciting time to be here is summer because I love the cool of summer water off the coast of anywhere in Japan.  

Just the other day we went over our gear to make sure everything was in good condition.  Fins, snorkels, gloves, and rash guards; Japan is notorious for box jellyfish. We hopped on the express called the Tokaido Line from Tokyo to southern Izu - took 90 minutes to reach our destination.   Taxi ride from the station was 1000 yen / $10.00 USD. We found a nice little dive site and got suited up and in the deep blue we went. Our eyes were blessed beyond our expectations!

The summers are hot, humid, and sultry around the entire island, including Hokkaido, which was once a safe hav…

Hate Speech in Japan

Local municipalities  in Japan have been pushing a motion to make hate speech punishable by imposing fines and other legal actions.     I for one support free speech and I support the condemnation of minority groups who break national laws.

I do not condone hate speech of any kind, but I do condone civic discourse that questions the legitimacy of fraudulent claims by those who choose not the assimilate or naturalize into the great nation of Japan.   I question those institutions that allow North Korean schools to exist here tax free and who payout billions of yen in free health benefits.   This is not hate speech, this is common sense, something in short supply here.

Since the re-founding of Japan's Constitution by the former Occupational Authority under the late former General Douglas McArthor(sp), 50 additions were entered into the current constitution in Japan.   Such freedoms like  free speech and equality were among many revisions added to it.

Since the overwhelming majori…

Zojoji Temple: the Main Temple of the Jodo-shu sect of Pure Land Buddhism

Pretty much every tourist who visits Tokyo will most likely wind up at this venerated temple in Minato-ku.   Through these doors sits a huge beautiful golden Buddha fully adorned in a solemn darkness, surrounded by souls.

The whole inner sanctuary is hallowed ground for me.   The incense and prayer sticks always gets me and puts me in the mood for prayer.    There are a row of chairs to sit on right in front of the alter and I often come here to nap in solemn repose and spiritual harmony.   I'm at home in the womb of Japan.

Reflecting on self,  helps one realize their  shortcomings.   We all have to start from self with all of our own  personal failures, and dealing with demons.   The struggle to understand the balance between god man is seldom won.

Sometimes you do not have to speak when at an alter; you can just remain silent and allowing it to take you away like on a meandering stream of consciousness through the cosmos.   I wonder how far I can project my thoughts sometimes…

From the Desk of SofJ: A New Era of Dogmatism

People of Tokyo, I have arrived and I will shake the establishment to the core.  Take heed.  I may need to save Tokyo from being exported by the globalist and its cohorts.  I am sure somebody is Yelling at the top of their lungs now!  I know they want to toss me off this tower, so just get in line.

Leaving behind the beach life in beautiful sunny southern Kanagawa, I am now a resident of Greater Tokyo.  Zushi life was epic though!  The sun, surf, and bikini life  and wild beach parties was unforgettable.

South coast beach love is a completely unique experience in all of Japan, and I am leaving this all behind to continue my gospel of good sake, culinary delights, and Jukujo and Japan love, or the Right.  I am totally the Right and far more lethal in doctrine, but at the same time I am gentle.  I know these young ones are bought and sold on escapism and conspicuous consumption.   They will never bare the torch of traditional values and they will mostly likely shun the continuity of tr…

End of Winter

Goodbye winter.  I loved you - Ice sicles hanging from your sweet trellises.    I remember you, hot onsen, and how you kissed me..  Coldly with wet lips and sulfur breath.    I am sake blooded, so I am naturally warm and convivial.   Except for the wet cold nose of that wolf  and its thousand yard stare.    The growling shaky throat murmurs bellowing and snorting breathing  exhaling  icy icy cold air...     One  line of fine snot fell upon my shoulder...oooh cold.     But, I guess this is love.  

My Niigata Bitch has a cold nose....But she smelt good on the pot.  I always made sure she ate premium Japanese rice.    The toilet bowl was warmer than her heart at times, but... she loves me.   Winter is like this.    From one extreme to the next.   

Goodnight My Sweet....See you next season.

First living non-Japanese god of Japan, and the only soul left in

First living non-Japanese god of Japan, and the only soul left in

I was 1200 meters above sea level and sitting in an open-air bath full of naked female strangers.    O Yamagata, how I love thee.
("If not for the snow-clad  pines and spruces that dot the landscape, then only the women and the fresh sake most certainly would suffice the mystical beauty of thee and save the day").   

I had been sitting in an open-air bath for two hours straight.   I was the only male left in a huge open door bath on a snowy mountain peak.   I was joined by two under 30 female patrons, fully ripe and absolutely gorgeous.   Now I know how it is, sitting in a bath tub full of strangers who do not want to sit next to me.   I love the good love of female company though, especially when they are so warm and convivial.   They moved right up to me without ANY TOWEL to cover their body.    I was the only shy person in the water!   I loved how the full moon cast a light across their breast, …

Coffee in Japan

Coffee in Japan

So lets start with Doutors, a homegrown coffee shop with wooded interior.   They brew a decent Cup of Joe.  Simple menu and is one of the cheapest places for a blend, and a fairly straight forward one.   The point card is 300 yen or 3USD and you pick it up at the counter of any Doutors with a zero balance.   To activate it, just log on to their website - in Japanese.   You can navigate your way around the site if you have some Japanese abilities, if not, a J-dictionary should help.   When entering your name on the sign-up page you will need to enter it in furigana and hiragana, then enter your address and done.    Then you will be able to charge the card at any Dotours or Excelsiors and you will get points for using the card.  Having points makes you eligible  for discounts and other rewards.    As you can see in this picture below a chart.

There is a ranking system and after reaching a certain amount of points, like in my case 17,480 I can become a Gold Rank which wo…
