Dormy Inn Shinsaibashi

The Soul of Japan
The Dormy Inn Hotel in Shinsaibashi, Osaka is definitely the place to stay when visiting this city. 
For me, one of the most important things a hotel can have are good amenities and services, like the 24 hrs open and indoor baths and sauna.   One nice feature about using the bath is that you have to use a code number in order to access the bathing area.    It’s a good feature because you know that only guest are allowed to use the baths.  Sometimes I like feeling a little exclusive.   The hotel even offers you complimentary bottled water right after check-in.
The room I had was small but clean and came with everything a top grade hotel could offer: flat screen T.V., large pajamas, slippers, fridge, cutlery, utensils, and so on. 
  • TV
  • Telephone
  • LAN
  • Pot
  • Tea Set
  • Refrigerator
  • Hair Dryer
  • Trouser Presser (Lending)
  • Desk Lamp (Lending)
  • Iron (Lending)
  • Humidifier (Lending)
  • Body Soap
  • Conditioning Shampoo
  • Toothbrush
  • Razor
  • Comb
  • Towel
  • Bath Towel
  • Relaxation Wear
  • Slippers
Another nice thing is the 24 hour convenience store attached to the annex floor.  I joke you not, I could walk out of my room in my pajamas and slippers and enter through an annex directly into a convenience store from the first floor without actually having to leave the building.  And I don’t mean a convenience store affiliated with the hotel, but a family mart, which is a major convenience store chain found all through out Japan. 
Some of the biggest things I notice travelers need the most are access to amenities, like a coin laundry machines, lots of AC outlets, and internet access.   The coin laundry is located right near the entrance to the bathing area, and for just a few yen you can wash a load or two while soaking in the bathing are
Cost is 7800 yen per night for an economy double, breakfast included.  check-out is between 11 and 12, so you can take your time – no rush.   The rooms are clean and well furnished and quiet.  The fridge is small and empty so you can purchase beverages and stock the fridge.  24hour desk.    Brochures in English are generously provided at the front desk explaining everything from how to use the toilet to where breakfast will be served.   The rooms are located high so there’s no noise disturbance from the ground floor or from outside.   Shinsaibashi is one of the most lively night spots in Osaka.  There’s so much excitement down there.
The hotel is located here

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…
