アラフォー:Around 40!

This post will pay a special tribute to my favorite class of women called the Japanese Jukujo.  Not every Japanese woman in her forties is a Jukujo, though.   It takes a certain purity, genius, and power to be one of these types of women.   Why...?

( Chisato Shoda / 千里翔田)
There's just a little over exaggeration there.  And honestly, to class women like this is sexist and bias.  But, let me answer this first paragraph first.  In Japan, the term Jukujo is considered derogatory, which is quite stupid actually.  The Japanese interpretation of it is skewed in as much as they worship underage air headed girl types.  It's almost as if they worship the very things that make the country go down the drain.


Jukujo is the apotheosis of Japanese beauty, and while young Japanese women are also beautiful, Jukujo still far outclass them in almost every way, even in physical beauty.  And how is that I suppose...?  Look at Chisato Shoda, a very well aged, spry forty year old matron.  Elegant and sexy in purple who has beautiful legs and fair skin.   She is heavy bodied.

One of the greatest charms any woman can have is that of a teacher, mentor, and supporter.  Not necessarily a sex teacher, but a teacher of her own culture and language.   A woman who loves to be supportive and sincere, not some milquetoast who's afraid to help others or themselves achieve great things.

I think all people are the same in this regard regardless of sex, race, or nationality.  All humans have a need to be accepted by others.   However, I think that to simply be accepted would require that you have a unique quality to start with, I mean, if all you do all day is shop and live at home with your folks way up into your thirties and you go to Disneyland five times a year then what types of qualities are you to have?   If a woman has  confidence in who she is as a person, just as a simple ordinary Japanese person, then this is enough for me.  I'm an ordinary person so I can't be asking for too much.   Japanese men don't see it that way.  They see these women as old and undesirable which is nothing but pure stupidity.

I was in Kamakura one day with a Jukujo and we were waiting in line to be seated at this restaurant.  Just ahead of us a group of people were leaving the restaurant.  An American family of five and a Japanese lady who looked like she was no more then 24 years old was hosting them.  I take it that she was either engaged to one of the Americans and was showing her future in-laws around, or she was already married to one of the guys there, I couldn't really tell....

At any rate, you know in Japan you have to remove your shoes when entering traditional restaurants, and when leaving you have to put your shoes on over by the exit.   Unfortunately for the mother in-law she wasn't able to put her shoes on because of some sort of back or leg injury.  The rest of the family had finished putting their shoes on while completely forgetting about the mother in-law and almost walked off and left her, like nobody cared or even bothered to check that she was even able to put her shoes on.  She just sat there on the chair in the corner. 

My Jukujo ran over and put her shoes on for her!  Totally unexpected gesture of kindness that I had never seen in her before.  I mean, I'm used to her taking care of me and all, but a total stranger and with such spontaneity...?   I was impressed.   Later at the table I had asked her why she did it.... and she told me, ' who else was going to do it, somebody had to do it, so I did it.'   So you see, just from this one example, not every Japanese can be a Jukujo.

Most Japanese women are busy soul searching for some other identity, sometimes here or abroad, or at Disneyland....Rarely are they content with just being themselves?

Sorry for the nudity in this one, but I couldn't resist.  The male actor chose my favorite spot to sniff and relax.

Nurturing and supportive roles have always been a good traditional model for many Japanese women.   What we all need might just be in our very midst.

  2. Thank you much for your blog..it is such an inspiration! I live in Yokohama too and love 熟女 and 人妻 as well. I dated and bedded a 44 year old beauty last month but she wasn't as thick and curvy as i usually like them^^ Also she was married..can this be a problem in your experience? I made a Facebook page called 'Japanese Cougars' and it's the third time i've made it since the previous 2 attempts were taken down due to "sexual nature" of the page and sexually explicit texts in Japanese. So please have a look and I would be honoured if you joined it and/or left a comment or even some pictures to share! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Japanese-Cougars/186133351449643
    Hope to hear from you soon. Yours, チョコ(29歳)^^

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 …

August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, especially  in places like Tohoku and Kanto regions.  August is also  the most contentious month of the year in Japan; with the end of the war and war-related guilt.    Then there's the great exodus back home for millions of Japanese.   Obon season is what it's called in Japan, and it's  where families return to their hometowns to remember their ancestors and to spend time with loved ones.  Gravestones are visited, cleaned, and washed; rice or alcohol is often placed on  miniature altars next to a  headstone.  This is a way for Japanese to reconnect with their roots; a way for them to stay grounded and founded in the ways of tradition and cultural protocol.   

For the foreign tourist, some places will be overcrowded and expensive to reach; for Japanese, this is normal and can't be helped.   Wherever you go there will be lines and h…

Japan Board of Education: Amazing Grace...?

Japan Board of Education Textbook.
Amazing Grace
Shuken Shuppan  Polestar textbook English Communication

Preface:  Japanese / Japan is  one of the leading donors in humanitarian aid around the world.   They have donated billions of yen to charities, developing countries, and startup business to just about every country on the globe.  Some Japanese have even taken matters to the extreme  to the point of poking their noses into hotspot areas like Palestine and Isreal, things the Japanese may want to avoid.  Had Japan shared its borders with an ethnic minority with its own government, the relative peace and calm of this country would be questionable.   No other country can be like nor emulate Japan.   So, where does this spirit of charity and altruism come from exactly?   Why do the Japanese feel they need to save the whole world, while caring very little for its own people?   It's the Board of Education...?  The essay below is one such example of what Japanese kids learn in school,…
