Misaki Tuna: Lunch

This trip will go down as one of my all time favorite lunch trips.  Nothing like jumping on the Express Keikyu Line and heading out to some sleepy little harbor at the extreme south of the Miura Peninsula - with my sweet mum of course.


[The Keikyu]


It'll be my second time journeying this far along the Miura peninsula.  Last time I was out this way I visited a great onsen called Aburatsubo.  This time around I wanted to make up for lost time, since last time I was out this way I didn't have a chance to enjoy delicious tuna.  There are few places where one can enjoy great tuna in Japan, Miura is one such place you can go to enjoy some fantastic tuna.


There was a slight overcast this afternoon, no worries, it's just water.  I wasn't going to miss out on a  great afternoon, plus it was Friday early morning.  The trip down was pleasant.  It took about 40 minutes from Yokohama station.   Once arriving at Misakiguchi station we hailed a taxi and rode it out to Sanwa port where my favorite revolving sushi shop is, and one that's fully noted in a number of foodie magazines for having some of the best fish.  



The place is called Sanwa and they specialize in brand named tuna called Misaki Maguro!  The first order of business was nihonshu, my Jukujo never goes for the beer and neither do I.  We ordered Japanese sake  and tuna immediately.



Akami - or red tuna. 


This lunch set was around 1000 yen miso soup included.


This is called an Ark Shell fish or red clam because it resembles the hull of a boat.  The Japanese call it Akagai and it's been a part of Japanese cuisines since old times.  Full of vitamin B, Taurine, and Calcium.  This shell can be enjoyed from Winter to Spring, and usually at this time its color is more red.  In the summer it begins to turn light red or white in color.  This is when it's most tender.  My favorite shell.

This video was shot by me using my iphone.  There's a brief explanation about about these two fish at the bottom of the video.  Supposedly rare, but delicious nevertheless.

Sushi and cold nihonshu go so well together!

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…
