Midtown Christmas Tokyo 2009

The finest illuminations and spectacles of light can been seen here at one of Tokyo’s swankiest business districts.  This year, like last year, the night time displays of lights not only lit the atmosphere, but our hearts as well.  Christmas was everywhere in Midtown this year!

In the Galleria you can enjoy more illuminations.  This one is called the Welcome Chandelier and every 15 minutes it changes colors.

The trees in Sakura-dori and in the streets all around Tokyo Midtown are decorated by around 470,000 LED lights that are the color of candle flames. The camphor tree in the Midtown Garden will be illuminated with pink LED lights. The electricity are solar-generated.

There’s a new staging this year for the "Starlight Garden", the symbolic illumination for Tokyo Midtown that will be set up on the Grass Square spanning 2,000 square meters. Adding to the dreamlike atmosphere are  lights in the surrounding trees. Every 20 minutes, visitors are able to enjoy the illusion of shooting stars turning into stardust.

I have seen all sorts of illuminations in my time, but this by far was the best.  A must see for anybody visiting Tokyo during this time of year – without the Christmas music. 

An environmentally friendly Christmas as everything was solar powered.

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…
