62nd Sapporo Snow Festival: Susukino!

These are fish frozen in an ice sculptor. Susukino is about three blocks from Odori Park, where the real yuki matsuri is taking place. Susukino is where all the adults play, and Odori Park is where all the kids play. Hanging out in both areas is definitely doable. I recommend not using the subway, just walk and save money.



Susukino can easily be seen in less than an hour whereas Odori Park takes a few hours because you need to explore the different venues and food stalls in order to really take in everything.

The real benefit for coming through Susukino would be the ramen stalls at night. Of course the light up go too, but Odori Park has best light up display. Susukino's illuminations stay on longer than Odori Park. I'm blogging this as if I am taking notes so forgive me for lack of narration.

Here's the busy intersection of Susukino. Again, a place where all the big kids play, so you can imagine what's down here.

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…
