Oden

Before I forget, I wanted to post this last winter dish which I never get enough of, and that’s oden.  

Oden

This picture was taken in Shikoku at one of my favorite oden shops called Jumbo Udon located in Takamatsu which is the capital of Kagawa on the island of Shikoku.  

One of the nicest memories I have here is when I was on the road with coworkers.  We drove all the way from Okayama to Kagawa via the great Seto Ohashi Bridge, which stretches from the main land to the island of Shikoku .  We had a nice time.  In this dish I really enjoyed the egg and the octopus.  The mustard had a unique flavor, too.  I could probably eat here everyday if I lived over here.

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…
