Inatsuyu This is a Junmai Ginjo shiboritatte( freshly pressed) seasonal sake produced in Tendo city, Yamagata. The reason for blogging this nihonshu is because I wanted to introduce a new type of rice called "honnama-dewasanzan!" which I think will revolutionize a whole new series of newly produced sake this year. Rice and koji methods are a make or break her for most all nihonshu you drink, so for this blog entry I wanted to introduce a real winner. Firstly, on my previous blogs about Yonezawa beef I mentioned about how some sake pair well with a good steak. Well, at the restaurant we had eaten at, this bottle came highly recommended by the chef who prepared our food. The only think is, is that we couldn't order by the glass, we had to purchase the whole bottle. So, knowing me, I did and decided to take it back to the hotel and drink down half of it by myself. It was fantastic! I won't go into flavor characterictics today, but I will tell you this, by far this was the best tasting sake during my entire trip in Yamagata.

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…
