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…

江ノ島亭:Lunch on the Rocks!

Whenever I'm down this way in Enoshima I fancy me some sazae(栄螺), a turbo cooked in its own shell, according to the dictionary.  Many Japanese have popularized this shell as a sea creature demon in many of its manga( comics) and folklore tales of some strange creature demon that lives in the sea.   If it really  is a demon like the local folklore claims  then it sure as hell taste like heaven to me.( One for me, and one for me).The reason for blogging this particular place is because it was the first place I was taken to when I first arrived here in Japan, so lots of good memories were shared here.   Also, of all the restaurants on this island, this one has the best view and seating and is also the most spacious I think.   For sure, the view is very good on a clear day.   The restaurant's foundations is on a large rock encrustation that overlooks the Sagami Bay.  The neat thing about this place are the large Hawks that fly so close by the window.    On a good day, clear weathe…


The title of this post was an invention by train enthusiast here in Japan.  In other words, geeks who love chasing, rubbing, and touching trains, and of course taking pictures with and of them!  Any kind of train, especially old ones.  Well, I'm that geek and I love me some train every now and then.  Cold steel, smooth carriage, soft inside.  I love how the doors slide open.  Easy access baby.   Just the other day I was chasing one down around Hase Station.  She almost got away from me, but thanks to the Soul of Japan Bike she didn't.  I caught up to her with that 50cc.  The girls on the train went wild when they saw me looking cool and snapping pics with one hand and riding my bike with the other. This country is the Mecca of trains, and the capital of bizarre and strange hobbies loved and admired by men of all ages.  The oldest I came across  was about 70. It took me awhile to catch on to all the nostalgia, but it finally sunk in.   This summer should get a even crazier, and t…

Kamakura's Gokurakuji: Ajisai

The hydrangeas in this part of Japan have reached there peak, and are now officially in full bloom.   I suppose there're many places in Japan where one can go to see hydrangea, but if there had to be a place, one with Mecca like status where throngs of elderly and Jukujo, highly refined Japanese women, visit for the sole purpose of viewing Hydrangea, then Kamakura would be that place. 

(  Jukujo Babes)

Hydrangea can be found almost anywhere in this historic city,  not only famed for its legendary craftsman, poets, and educators, but also for its many temples, shrines, and botanical gardens, a place  where people travel from far and wide to take a walk through time.   Again, it's Kamakura and in this city there're several  parts of it you can visit.  This post will focus on the best spot called Gokurakuji!

I love these flowers.  Summer has so much to offer here in Japan.  Seasonal flowers, foods, and sake.  I used to hate summers until I came to this cou…

An Exposition on Identity

The San Joaquin Valley has been known for having some of the hottest summers on record in California, and I remember clearly during one of those summers I was working away on a patio.    The sweat was literally pouring off my face.  I could even feel it drip from my chin as each droplet  splattered on to the bricks and on to my hand.  It was a stifling heat wave that summer afternoon, but for some reason I was unusually chipper that day because it was the first time I had ever worked side by side with a black person.There he  was a spry middle aged black man at the height of his professional career was working beside me.   Both of our hammers were striking in unison upon the bricks and in between each strike we both struggled for our own breathes which was mainly due to the stifling summer heat that day.   I clearly remember him wiping his eyes repeatedly for some reason.  And then after careful inspection it was because his blue contact lenses had dried up from the excessive salt fro…

Momoishi: The Big Apple of Japan

The map below is of a prefecture called Aomori, the northern most prefecture on the main island of Honshu.  I was shocked to find that in 2006 this town, formerly known as Momoishi[百石町], was merged into another town called Shimoda making up the city of Oriase, a site ,by the way, famed for its amazing onsen(s) and wintery landscapes.  Last time I was up this far was back in 05'It is in this newly made up town called Oriase, that is made up of six municipalities, is the site where the famed Statue of Liberty is, the largest in Japan, and second largest in the world.   Prior to merging it was in Momoishi, which sadly no longer exist.   Sad because so many of these smaller towns are being swallowed up by larger municipalities and so much of the local history of these smaller towns are in jeopardy of being lost and forgotten.  The price a country pays for a shrinking population.

Amazingly enough, many of the Japanese I've come across, and I come across many on a dail…

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine

I have a slightly different take on this shrine for this post. A slight departure from the way how most media portray sacred places in Japan....i.e. this post will not necessarily talk about how cool it is to visit  a shrine, but more about how to appreciate it.  Without going into  history, this post will focus on a couple of points you should take into consideration  when visiting a shrine.  I was treated to a visual expose of an elderly Japanese man teaching the ancient ways of shrine etiquette to a group of kids, apparently he's working for a volunteer group that teaches children how to properly carry on at a shrine.   I didn't know you had to cover your mouth when rinsing and spitting.  ( water trough)Before you enter a shrine it's  customary to rinse your hands and mouth at a water trough.1) You take a cup.  Rinse it with water.  Then fill it.2) Pour water over both of your hands.3) Fill the cup again.  Pour some water into your left hand.  Put that water in your mou…
