Sake meter value is at 65%. Nihonshu-do, which is the sake's density to water is -13. Most ordinary sake would be around plus 3 to 5,which would indicate a degree of dryness whereas minus would indicate sweetness. Some sake are plus 8( very dry), or like in the case of this featured sake minus 13! SWEET. Acidity is +1.5. Alc. is 15~16度. This is good though, as this is a milky colored sake.  Most all nigori(unfiltered) type sake will share this intense sweetness. This sake is also a bit gassy too.

Okay, so I ordered it, received it, tasted it, and fell in love with it. It was everything I would’ve expect from Akita prefecture, plus more. It had a creamy thick soupy consistency and yet, it didn’t over power your mouth with strong pungent flavors. Delicate and full bodied, nice aroma and clean after-taste.

Almost like drinking her smooth and creaminess. Her name’s Nozomi and she was born and raised in Akita.

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…
