Random Delights of Tsukiji

On Wednesday, when Tsukiji's market is actually closed, and there are fewer people, you can find quite a few 'mom&pop' shops still open. This particular one was just a random stall selling scallops, so there wasn't anything really special about it except for the old lady who was working tirelessly to feed hungry gaijin like myself tasty scallops - she wasn't all that nice either. This old lady was very fiesty. She was snapping and shouting at customers and pointing her finger. I thought she was cute, actually. She especially hated it when people were taking her picture. I told she was sexy and that her scallops were worth it all. In the end though, it was all worth it, for this delicious sea scallop. I had to wait 30 minutes! That's Tsukiji!


  1. You and Tornado have got us thinking of a trip to Tsukiji... and sushi and sake too!

    Sorry you posted to my personal blog and I didn't notice. Somehow I can't make comment notification work at that site so I'm always slow.

    Thank you for your kind words. I must say, it looks like you have been no slouch in exploring either.


  2. May be oneday I can go to Tsukiji.. It can be good.

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…
