Nikko Part 2

We were awakened by a beautiful brilliant sun this morning, whose rays felt to me as if they had busted through our windows!   I was literally slapped out of my slumber – slapped and kissed all at the same time.

Crawling out of my futon with my eyes closed and feeling my way over to the window, I opened the sliding veranda door in order to allow the fresh morning air in.  What a nice smell; what a nice breeze, and a fantastic view I saw with one painfully squinted eye.

Breakfast was nice.  Just the standard traditional Japanese fair; rice, miso, fish, and natto.  Though I love this kind of breakfast, nothing can touch a Denny’s Grand Slam.  After breakfast we headed back to our room, got changed, then headed down for the morning bath.  Since we were staying for another night we didn’t need to check-out.  The outdoor bath was empty and the sun outside was radiantly beautiful.   I soaked for about 20 minutes, got out, and dried and headed back to my room. 

The plan for this afternoon was Toshogu, a world heritage site, which is famous for a lot of things, but namely for  being the final resting ground for the last shogunate in Japan, Tokugawa Ieyasu(1543-1616).

A lot can be blogged about on just  Toshogu alone, but won’t on this blog as there is plenty of information out there on this world heritage.  

After spending four hours at Toshogu my feet were killing me.  I never washed my hands so many times at a temple shrine before.  I guess I needed to be purified.  But I love living in the womb of my desire, there is just nothing like it in the world.  I saw so many tasty looking mommies up there.

Heading back to the hotel we got changed for dinner.  I wear the 特大 size as it’s the largest yukata they have.  Dinner tonight was even better than last nights.  The works were served up.

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…
