Yokohama 横浜


Often wonder where ordinary people are headed off to midday on a beautiful weekday.  Nearby from where I took this picture there’s a coffee shop that’s always packed to capacity; like they usually are.  It makes me wonder sometimes if people actually work. 

I remember listening to a song by Vangelis called Abraham’s Theme  while looking through the viewfinder of my camera just before I took this shot.


A couple of Autumn leaves leftover from last fall clinging on to each other.  They only have each other.  They’re  all that’s left.


A month ago people were fawning over its beauty, now they walk all over it, crushing it under their feet and think absolutely nothing of it.


All the color is gone, all of the life is gone out of it.  It’s dead now.  Such is life for this once so beautiful leaf.  Not even one single memory is cherished of it.  Soon the winds will come and carry it off to some unknown direction and remnants of its glory will be etched in the annals of the lost and forgotten greats just like the Soul of this nation.

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…
