The backcountry in Tochigi is beautiful. This father and daughter were strolling along enjoying each others company.

In the end,this is the real Japan. Getting away from the grind, enjoying the simple life and simple ways like walking along miles and miles of rice fields. Soaking in the morning sun and breathing in that fresh country air. I love Tochigi prefecture.

  1. You have perfectly captured the rural life in Tochigi. Simple but very appealing. This is one of the best times of year in Tochigi due to all the preparations for rice planting and the kiji coming out in all their finery.

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…
