Kamakura Night Walks

Exploring Kamakura at night is quite relaxing. The photo to your left is behind the Kamakura Station at around 7:30pm, just before the rush of commuters start to take place.

At around this time you can spot salarymen either dashing home or hailing a taxi. Some stop by a coffee shop to relax before heading home. Others like me are just enjoying the autumn night with its cool breeze and clear starry night sky.

From the main gate side of Kamakura Station, you can spot figures of shadows on their way to somewhere, anywhere.

Just off to the left there's a tourist information center that has several shops that stay open until 10pm. Before my night walk I stopped over at a place called Marbles which serves up organic ice cream. The chocolate is good.

After exiting the Tourist Information center I headed over to the Komachidori Street. In this photo, just across the way, you can see some buildings. On the top floor there's one of my fav coffee houses called Suzu's. I highly recommend the Kamakura Banana with hot cup of Blue Mountain and hot apple pie.

And from here's where my walk began. As you can see the streets were empty, except for a few passersby. I didn't know how far to walk, so I just took my time exploring this small wonderland of shops and historical landmarks.

The first place I noticed off to my left is this little pavilion with a really pretty christmas tree lit up. I saw a couple having a chat over black.

One thing about Kamakura is the seemingly endless array of shops and boutiques. There's a shop for just about everything here from bric-a-brac, to calligraphy brushes. Even though the shops were closed it was still a nice time for me. The picture below is a Tenegui shop.

Here the door was in a unique position, still beautiful nevertheless.

And then here, my favorite ham shop. In the daytime it's full of people scrambling for that legendary Kamakura Ham. If it weren't so expensive I'd be eating it like a hog everyday. I think it's pretty decent ham, personally I think you can find good ham anywhere in Japan.

Over here is an old structure that sells ornaments and little trinkets of sorts. I was more interested in the structure than what was inside.

This picture is of another shop but in the shape of a zukkuri style shrine with a few modifications.

And then I noticed this guy sitting over here.

I walked around for a about 2 hours. It was really nice. Kamakura at night is definitely for the easy traveler.

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…
