Kyougoku Natural Mineral Water

This is a well water, in Japanese well water is called " 鉱泉" or Kou-sen and I've been sitting on this box of water for a few days already.  I purchased it directly from the source from a small town called Kyougoku in the Abuta District on Japan's large northern island in Hokkaido which by the way is famed for its delicious seafood, and natural country beauty.  Acres and acres of farmland and cow grazing pastures as far as the human eye can see.  Where there's delicious water there's good sake, good food, and good onsen.

Near the foot of Mount Yotei there is a spring called Fukidashi Park that has delicious water that many Hokkaidoans travel to from all over the island.  The last time I was there was about 4 years ago on my way to Sapporo.  I remember it was an early Autumn afternoon so the water was especially cool and crisp.

I have several photos of this place , but decided to show you this pick.  I remember the water being so cold when it came down from this source and into my cup.  In the general vicinity of this area is the Kyougoku Springs area, but I highly recommend visiting this park instead if you have the time and a rental car because you can enjoy collecting as much water as you like from various different sources around the park. 


According to the box, this water is best used for making coffee, tea, and for boiling vegetables.  I love it just for the sake of drinking cold delicious water in the summer.

Again, another fantastic water pick.  What's next...?

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…
