Morning Onsen

This onsen photo was an experiment in cloning. This was actually taken at a hotel in Izu early in the morning.  Westerners are accustomed to bathing at night, before bed. Typically in the morning they like to have showers before starting their day, but in Japan, on holiday, the morning bath is the best. 

At the crack of dawn on a cold morning I like to tippy-toe down the hallway, down those cold creaky steps - freezing, as I find my way through the bathroom door. And then after dowsing myself with water I  slowly and carefully enter the hot water.  Ooohhh --- Aaaahh.   Opening every blood corpuscle in my body, a faint appetite begins to set in my stomach and then I know it's breakfast time.

A hot bath before breakfast works wonders for the appetite!   Your body is energized and ready and you don't feel groggy anymore.  One of the most important pastimes in Japan.  This is also called
Asaburo in Japanese or morning bath.

Japan is great.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  

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…
