Original Cocktail: Mt. Fuji

I had recommended this original cocktail to Blue Lotus over at http://blue_moon.typepad.com/ awhile ago, but now come to find out, she won't be drinking any kind of cocktail for a long time to come, so here's to you Blue Lotus.

 

This original cocktail called the Mt. Fuji consists of gin, egg white, pineapple juice, and lemon juice.  It's around 1400 yen and then there's a 525 yen cover charge.  The Fuji is a fruity, clean, and refreshing little cocktail.   Didn't pick up on the essence of Mt. Fuji.  the cocktail had more of a tropical feel to it than anything.  I guess the frothy white top and yellow color gives it a happy feel.  I still prefer nihonshu as a drink that embodies every single element in Japan.

It's been ages since the last time I  sat in an old Victorian Style bar and had one of these kinds of cocktails.   This bar is located in the Fujiya Hotel in a bar called Victoria.

 

This Hotel which is located in Miyanoshita has been renowned globally as one of the finest classical hotels in Japan.  Once you enter the hotel, just off to the right, there's a narrow passage way leading up to this Victorian style bar.

The directions if you're driving are on the map.  There's also a pick up service for those staying overnight at the stations listed on the map if you are taking a train.

I think staying and or visiting this world class hotel, even if it's just for snaps, then I highly recommend it.  Legendary Japanese customer service as usual.  Expensive and clean and very well maintained facility.  Bar hours are from 5 to11.

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…
