Kakuemon: 角右衛門

The brewery that makes this sake is called Akita Kimura Shuzo, and the name of the sake I am drinking is called Kakuemon Tokubetsu Junmai Shu. This is a special brew that falls in between a junmai and a junmai ginjo; in other words an especially brewed premium sake.

The breakdown is as follows:
Seimaibuai/Remaining Rice = 60%
Sando/Acidity Level =1.6
Alcohol = 16.5

The history of the brewery goes back centuries, which can be reflected in all of its sake. 

Keyword: SMOOTH, like the Akita Beauty. I love the complex fruits I get out of this one, and it's sweet. It's one of those sake you can only get if you are in Japan. It's a modest sake that holds up well to a variety of different dishes and occasions. You never get tired of it. Me and my Jukujo drank down this whole 1.8 liter bottle and crashed down on the mattress and slept deeply for hours.

It's more like an everyday, I-love-sake kind of drink you can binge on and know that you are getting what you paid for, and be satisfied.

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…
