Convenience Store Food in Ishikawa Prefecture!

I thought it was important to post this because for me it’s important for others to understand and appreciate the enormous level of convenience in Japan. On the night I had eaten this feast I was staying at a business hotel in Kanazawa, which was about a 20 minute walk to Kenroku Gardens.
Anytime I visit a new prefecture I always sample the local food at the local market first and then the nihonshu because for me it’s central in understanding the people. Kanazawa people, like most Japanese, love seafood and can create almost anything out of it. I love Japanese seafood, but the style and presentation of seafood in Kanagawa and Tokyo do not rival this part of Japan on a convenience store level. It is not like what can be found in Tokyo or Kanagawa where the sushi rolls are typical and uninteresting or no sushi at all in many convenience stores.
In the pictures you can see a famous Ishikawa brand called “kagatsuru.” This sake is like the “Kubota” of Niigata but with subtle differences in aroma and texture. Burikama, the meat around the fish’s gills, is a local favorite of this region. The second food item wrapped in a green leaf is called “sasano hazushii,” which is unique to this part of Japan also. You see, there’s lots of uniqueness in Japan and in its many prefectures. This meal cost me under 3000 yen and I wasn’t even able to finish it all.

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…
