オク奥

The name of this nihonshu is called (oku), and it's a summer sake hailing from Aichi prefecture in West Japan.   The reason for choosing this sake is because one it's from Hazu town and two it was ranked high on the list of repeat sake at the last sake tasting even I had attended a couple of weeks ago here.

What I like a lot about this sake is its gorgeous floral nose.  It has deep flavor profiles with a nice complexity of flavors. 

The breakdown is as follows:

This is first and foremost a junmai nama genshu Genshu; alc. 18.5%;Seimaibui 60%; a rice grain called yume sansui; nihonshudo +2;acidity is 1.8; amino acid 1.3.

 

The map above is in the general vicinity of where the brewer is located.  Zoom out to get a better geographical location.

Thanks for reading.  If you ever have a chance to sample this stuff do so before summer.  Really nice summer style sake.

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…
