Glass Bottom Boat: Feeding the Fish

I spend a lot of time eating fish, so now it’s time to give back by feeding the fish.  What better way than to take a cruise on a feeding boat with my 特別母!

The nice thing about this cruise is that below decks you can see fish, yes, that’s right, the bottom of the boat has windows you can see through.  

 

One of the nice things about this short cruise was that it was just right, no long drawn out explanations, just simple and to the point.  Our host was gracious and very knowledgeable about the Miura Peninsula.

He gave us a brief history about the harbor and the feeding area we were headed to.   I think from port to feeding point was roughly 15 minutes.   As you can see this cruise is very popular with the aged.   I tend to follow them around as they know what's good to get into.   Trust me.

The helm area was cool to look at also.

Once we reached point we headed below deck.

I never knew blowfish and plaice were so cute when swimming through the ocean.

When the feeding began everybody went gaga over all the fish.  It was very interesting.

Japanese have so much appreciation for aquatic plants and animals.   I have also grown quite fond of animals since living here.   The seaman who lectured us topside was feeding the fish on both port and starboard sides of the boat.   Plus the boats cavitations stirred up the seabed which caused fish to swim around the boat to eat.

Here you can see the fish food.  Guest are given an opportunity to throw food into the water.

All and all, this was a nice little outing.  Some people got seasick.  The cruise lasted about 30 minutes, so not too long and not too short.  You felt you got your moneys worth.    I plan on exploring more of southern Miura in the near future.   In August this feeding boat tour gets full quickly.  We were lucky to grab tickets.

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…
