故郷 (唱歌)

Today's Song Furusato 1. 兎(うさぎ)追いし かの山 I hunted rabbits on that mountain. 小鮒(こぶな)釣りし かの川 I fished for minnows in that stream. 夢はいまも めぐりて I still dream about those days I spent when a child. 忘れがたき ふるさと How I miss and long for my old country home. 2. いかにいます 父 母 Mother and father ― are they doing well? つつがなしや 友がき Is everything all right with my old friends? 雨に風に つけても When the rain falls, when the wind blows, I recall 思いいずる ふるさと My happy childhood and my old country home. 3. こころざしを はたして Some day when I have done what I set out to do, いつの日にか 帰らん I will return to where I used to have my home. 山はあおき ふるさと Lush and green are the mountains of my homeland. 水は清き ふるさと Pure and clear is the water of my old country home. Anyway, I really love this song. Even when I was traveling around Japan for so many years, this song was always perfect for those journeys.

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…
