Kinoko No Yado

This Yado (mansion)/ryokan(Japanese inn), is truly an experiment in cuteness. Kinoko means mushroom in Japanese and this mansion is built in the shape of one. If you click on the link you can see the view from the outside. This uniquely designed inn was a mix of modern and classical themes; old wooded baths with modern amenities.

The tub is a real tree hollowed out and made into a bath. I was barely able to squeeze into this thing, but I did and it was a very unique experience for me. The snow was a plus, too. Aside from this fact, another interesting hot spring I posted about before is located right next door to this Japanese inn called Unkaikaku. The indoor bath was modest, but not as hot as I would have liked it.

What we enjoyed most about this inn was the food, the theme, and the overall general atmosphere. The staff were friendly and everything was just homely and comfortable.

Lots of fresh sashimi and seasonal delights, and of course mushrooms which were in the pot were excellent. You may have to check several maps to find this as it's not easily listed. Getting here you can take the nasu highway bus, or by car. Of course I recommend by car. I wouldn't travel any other way.

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…
