Sawanotsuru

Thank you all for your patience. Now I'm back up and running. I recently changed computing platforms. A major change by the way. I have fully converted from PC to Mac and I am not looking back baby. I have had my last straw with Bill's software monopoly and I won't tolerate it any longer, but enough of that. Listen to the pronounciation of this sake:

Closing summer out right I will be introducing a couple more summer sake. This one " Sawanotsuru" comes from a very well known and established brewery that has a well known reputation in the sake drinking community. By the way, the name "Sawanotsuru" literally means the " Crane of the Swamp." The reason for purchasing this brand is because normally, the nihonshu I choose come from smaller less known breweries, and since this one didn't I thought that I should offer my readers a little something more readily accessible. You can find this brand anywhere in Japan.

Now the nihonshu I am drinking tonight is the summer version and it's mighty tastyIMG_0575-2010-09-14-06-53.JPG

What you are looking at is called a yubeshi, a type of guteneous sweet brown sugar walnut filled treat from Fukushima Prefecture. Whenever I am up this way I make sure to grab one of these. I especially enjoy how lovely they go with delicious nihonshu. The mild texture of the summer genshu and this yubeshi makes for a delicious summer afternoon treat. I can imagine a better summer than with a good sake and some something soft and peanut filled.

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…
