Ryusendo Takamiya

Rusento Takamiya is very nice. The onsen and the room get full marks. Dinner I rate a C plus! They could've done better. The food had no balance and was too simple. The obasaan kept coming up to our table asking if the food was “oishii” again and again, which really isn't good customer service, actually. The food is good if all of it is eaten. Of all the hotels I've been to this was a first where someone kept asking if the food was good. The staff were mostly from China and Korea, so in this case they were only doing what they were told when dealing mainly with Japanese customers. Hanamaki Onsen in Iwate prefecture is the most famous when it comes to legendary customer service! So if ever you needed a guage to measure good customer service then Hanamaki Onsen would be it, in my opinion. I speak mainly from first hand experience and not from hearsey. At any rate, what I want to highlight are the new annex rooms. They were awesome. Full size beds; loft; huge windows. In the picture you can see humongous ice sicles hanging near our window. Very spacious feel. Fantastic view of the slopes. The room ran me 150000 yen per night per person.

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…
