Hourai Kuramoto no Kakushizake

Hourai
Pear nose; skinny legs, subtle entry, clean and tingly,fills the whole mouth, almost no tail,

I first learned about this sake from a friend on facebook last week and decided to order it a few days ago.  A day before the sake arrived I had done a search for other people who may have tried this nihonshu.  After carefully searching around I managed to find only one blog in English that had written something up about it.  The blog’s name is “Dad in a Foreign Land.”  He adds a unique twist by highlighting his other experiences prior to trying this.  He has quite and interesting blog, so why don’t you go and have look.
When I’m tasting any nihonshu I like to use a sake cup and a stemless  Daigenjo Riedel  sake glass so that I can better observe the  color and legs.  What you drink from brings a certain aesthetic to whatever it is you are imbibing on.  Sake should be enjoyed both visually, sublingually and moved around in your mouth.

The Ochoco (traditional sake cup)you see at the top is a bit larger than standard sake cups, and the Riedel glass is next to it.

And then with every good nihonshu there’s a good Jukujo match.  Murakami Ryoko would fit the exact same flavor profiles of this sake; full bodied, aromatic, flavorsome, and very easy to drink.  Her name is Murakami Ryoko and she’s a  mother goddess baby!

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…
