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 weather, you can throw bread out the window  and a hawk will soar down and catch it with its mouth.   Timing is everything.

The address: 251-0036

Getting will require a little walking up and down stairs.  Even if you take the escalator you'll still be required to use the stairs to get to this place.  

Simple pleasure.

Do Japanese Women Feel Uncomfortable in Bathing Suits?

Unless you have been to Japan, and have frequented its many beaches, you really do not know. The junk press rarely gets it right. I am here to tell you that Japanese women wear it and bare it all here. They wear thongs, t-backs, two pieces, and one piece. For the most part, they are not ashamed. Surveys that claim otherwise may be focusing on a very limited group of women, and that also includes the pathological liars who have no idea whether they are telling the truth or not.

In Western societies like the U.S.A., we are a nation of fat people with anorexic standards. We promote junk food and overnight diet fads that wind up making us fatter and less healthy. Americans remember the weight loss drug  "fin fin, " we remember the claims it made about weight loss and the subsequent disastrous side-effects. Japanese women in general avoid drug use of any kind for weight loss. They tend to focus more on either starving themselves, or eating healthier food in very limited quantit…

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…
