吟醸 生貯蔵酒 夏子物語花火

We are half way through the first week of August and temps are still hovering up around 30 in southern Yokohama, so it's still baking out here. 


Just last weekend and the night before there was another fireworks show in Minato Mirai.   The colorful displays that illuminated the summer night sky was breathtaking as usual.  So what better way to enjoy another summer night in Japan than with another nice summer sake. 


What this sake is is a Ginjo-Namachozoushu, you can click on the link which explains a bit about what a namachozoushu is.  The breakdown is as follows:  It uses Yamadanishiki rice as the brewing rice.  It's nihonshu-do is plus 3, and its smv is 55%. Acidity is 1.4. Alcohol is 15%.  The name of the sake is called Natsuko-Mono-Gatari-Hanabi

Flavor profiles are soft pear, dry, light, and crisp.  The pure taste of summer on your tongue, in other words.    We've got a full month left until summer starts to wind down.  Don't forget to try a nice summer brew while you are in Japan.

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…
