Onsen Beauty!

What I love: mochi skin, good leg development, fairly tall, loves nihonshu, and nature and most of all Japan. Or, that wonderful mix of freshly shampooed hair and onsen water...and mist from a mighty flowing river. Water beads streaming down the tautness of her smooth skin. Just carefree and without shame, mother naked.   It's the real Japan.



It's the wonderful mix of her laughter and her hoity-toity way that evoke eternity.      A timeless silliness, like there's no care in the world.    I can catch the aroma of the lunch box on the rock in the foreground.   Beer and sake work very well with Japanese cuisine, but green tea works even better.   Cold green tea and Japanese bento.    Sitting in a hot spring helps you work up an appetite all the time.


There used to be a time when women had no shame.   And that being mother naked was more normal than it is today.   Now, women just cover everything up.    Shame was first introduced by the fall of Adam and Steve, and ever since then the Church has spread the same shame through morality teachings.  



Under Tokugawa's reign mixed bathing was temporarily shunned because of lack of morality in the public bathing houses.   However, immorality in this sense had existed long before the idea of morality had even been introduced to Asia.    Nero, the last Roman Emperor enjoyed mixed bathing in the nude, and had even encouraged orgies.   Basically, it was state sanctioned immorality that truly gave him his claim to fame.   He defied every protocol, along with  all the prudes and religious zealots who taught hatred of the body and the flesh.      Hatred of the body is wrong.   Mixed bathing is healing.

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 …

August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, especially  in places like Tohoku and Kanto regions.  August is also  the most contentious month of the year in Japan; with the end of the war and war-related guilt.    Then there's the great exodus back home for millions of Japanese.   Obon season is what it's called in Japan, and it's  where families return to their hometowns to remember their ancestors and to spend time with loved ones.  Gravestones are visited, cleaned, and washed; rice or alcohol is often placed on  miniature altars next to a  headstone.  This is a way for Japanese to reconnect with their roots; a way for them to stay grounded and founded in the ways of tradition and cultural protocol.   

For the foreign tourist, some places will be overcrowded and expensive to reach; for Japanese, this is normal and can't be helped.   Wherever you go there will be lines and h…

Japan Board of Education: Amazing Grace...?

Japan Board of Education Textbook.
Amazing Grace
Shuken Shuppan  Polestar textbook English Communication

Preface:  Japanese / Japan is  one of the leading donors in humanitarian aid around the world.   They have donated billions of yen to charities, developing countries, and startup business to just about every country on the globe.  Some Japanese have even taken matters to the extreme  to the point of poking their noses into hotspot areas like Palestine and Isreal, things the Japanese may want to avoid.  Had Japan shared its borders with an ethnic minority with its own government, the relative peace and calm of this country would be questionable.   No other country can be like nor emulate Japan.   So, where does this spirit of charity and altruism come from exactly?   Why do the Japanese feel they need to save the whole world, while caring very little for its own people?   It's the Board of Education...?  The essay below is one such example of what Japanese kids learn in school,…
