Bikkuri Sushi & Sake

Located in The Diamond just outside of the Yokohama Station west exit is a very old and well-known local favorite called Bikkuri sushi.bikkuri sushi2
If you walk through The Diamond, an underground mall, you’ll see a Pompadours, which is a bakery located on a its own corner.  Turn right and you’ll see this sushi shop right next to another sushi shop called Kibun Sushi, which is also very famous.

Here, you can order 12 pieces of sushi for 1000 yen during lunch hours, which is from 11 to 3pm during weekdays.  
The reason for blogging this was because a salary man swore up and down that this was the spot for very reasonably priced sushi.   And for me, he thought, it would also be a good place to see lots of eye candy, which for me translates to Jukujo.  Boy!  Was he right on the money with this place. 
Though the place was small and difficult to squeeze into I managed.  I found a nice little spot to sit and eat in peace.   The freshly cut sushi was great as it was still room temperature and full of flavor.

And of course how could I forget to sample some delicious local jizake with my sushi.  How about something called Fukumasamune made from Yamada-nishiki rice.  A pure  and delicious daigenjyo ladies and gentleman.  Flavor characteristics: dry, with very little acidic taste.  Well balanced taste…i.e. flavors retain the same fullness of floral and fruit.  Very easy for women or first timers to drink.  Not harsh at all.  Slightly bitter after-taste


  1. That sushi looks good. I miss the sushi I had when I was in Japan.

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…
