Kushiro Blue Fin Sanma ! (Seito Sanma)

Straight Characteristics, originally uploaded by Tony Alexander.

There are two types of Saury; fresh saury and Seito Blue Fin Saury ! What you are looking at is a brand name saury that was fished 33 km off of the coast of Kushiro . It cost me a fortune to have shipped here. Fresh saury isn't firm like Seito Blue Fin Saury. Only this brand saury has this characteristics. If you hold it upright in one hand it never flops over. This is a sign that the saury is fat, healthy and well fed. Most saury flop over when holding it upright. Real Hokkaido Blue Fin or Seito Sanma as it's called in English. The Japanese name is called Seito Sanma, which is a seasonal fish only available in Autumn. When it’s shipped out you get a certificate of authenticity with the time; date; and location of where these fish were caught. Along with the names’ of the fishermen ! From left to right: Mr. Sugimoto; Mr. Sunaniwa; Mr. Kadowaki; and Mr. Honma are three of the top fishers working in Kushiro. On a final note, the waiting list for this brand sanma is about 3 months in advance. I had to make my reservations in August so that I could receive my shipment in October. Last year I missed the dead line. 10 saury cost 11,000 yen ! Is it worth it ? A resounding “hell” yes ! This is the King of Sanma and it even tastes different than regular store bought fresh sanma.

Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

Japanese Girls: A Sex(quisition)

While writing this, I was listening to "Going Through Changes" by Eminem

No, I haven't lost any love for momma, Japanese Jukujo that is, and yes, I do have a special place in my heart for young Japanese women, too. 

But then....then I glance over and there's a momma, a delectable Japanese Jukujo momma.  Fully rounded, and fully figured and fair healthy skinned.  Full fine silky muff fujii mounds. 

From this point I feel I need to qualify my remarks more thoroughly, though, especially when referencing women in general.   Firstly, it cannot be denied that there are beautiful women all over the world and from a variety of different backgrounds.  Women are people. However, in this essay I would like to take it a little further.

For me, living in Japan I have created a world unto myself so to speak.  I believe that some people create reasons for doing things, more so than there actually being a real need for doing said things, while others drift along accepting any an…
