Milk Liqueur!

 I love some of the concoctions the Japanese come up with, especially when it comes to seasonal drinks and aperitifs.   This new drink from Akita Prefecture is called "Yogursh" and of all the little sweet concoctions I've tried over the last few months,  this one by far is the best.  It could be because I'm a milk drinker.   Yogursh uses 100% natural milk in this product.  It's made using low temperature pasteurization along with very basic techniques for creating yoghurt by hand. Nothing complex about it at all so I wouldn't classify it as a " sake." If anything this is more like an Amazake, which is a type of super sweet and thick drink that's enjoyed during the winter and spring seasons in Japan.

The biggest difference I notice between Amazake and Yogursh is the silky smoothness and natural texture. No noticeable alcohol on the palate at all. The sweetness is just right. Not the face twitching sweetness you get with most amazake(s). This drink for sure will go over well with the occasional drinker who may not be into drinking that much.

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…
