Yoshiko-Private Body Sushi

My blog has attempted to bring together the things I find to be beautiful both naturally and spiritually, artistic and aesthetically pleasing to the senses in Japan. My focus has always been on Japanese food, nihonshu, the Jukujo, the shrine, and the hotspring experience, and those things which enhance that focus. I have searched far and wide for others with similar qualities, like in the case with Leonardo Fujita, and Toyoshige Watanabe



Both  men express beauty in different forms.   Fujita's was white skinned beauty, Toyoshige's was blackened devil beauty, two polar opposites united. These opposing elements that somehow infuse the whole of humanity stroke after stroke, brush after brush, all somehow merge into one whole defining beauty. All aspects have to be merged and not necessarily reinterpreted, and I think these men have accomplished just that.



Recently, a new talent has emerged on the art scene, a designer, who goes by the name of Andrea Rosagni from Genoa in northern Italy, a son of Milan, birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci and Alessandro Verri.  Mr. Rosagni has over 20 years of experience working as a designer and producer and has received numerous accolades for his work. He has worked for some of the biggest names in Italy since 1996 and has reshaped and refined his own unique style of artistic expression. A true definitive genius of his time. I look forward to his next creation. For now, I want to get my hands on a naked private body sushi tablecloth. His Facebook page is here


When I think of places like northern Italy images of the infamous Shroud of Turin come to mind, which supposedly bears the likeness of the Christ, so how befitting another great who would showcase another type of cloth, but this time one that bears the exact likeness of the Japanese Bijin( Japanese beauty), would take the art world by storm.    Mr. Rosagni is a sort of provocateur to some maybe?   I say he's a daring genius.


Nudity is beautiful.   Nudity is art.  A shroud of beauty.  The models name is Yoshiko.
An interesting thing is that all the finishes (length, the edges of the table cloth and confection) had been done by tailors of the San Vittore (the prison of Milano). The craftsmanship is simply amazing. Naked tablecloth where you can enjoy sushi and naked beauty all infused into one whole beautiful experience.


Naked sushi art or Nyutaimori in Japanese, date back to the Meiji era and was typically enjoyed by the  wealthy few who may have been a bit artsy.   I think it's absolutely beautiful!

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 …

August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, especially  in places like Tohoku and Kanto regions.  August is also  the most contentious month of the year in Japan; with the end of the war and war-related guilt.    Then there's the great exodus back home for millions of Japanese.   Obon season is what it's called in Japan, and it's  where families return to their hometowns to remember their ancestors and to spend time with loved ones.  Gravestones are visited, cleaned, and washed; rice or alcohol is often placed on  miniature altars next to a  headstone.  This is a way for Japanese to reconnect with their roots; a way for them to stay grounded and founded in the ways of tradition and cultural protocol.   

For the foreign tourist, some places will be overcrowded and expensive to reach; for Japanese, this is normal and can't be helped.   Wherever you go there will be lines and h…

Japan Board of Education: Amazing Grace...?

Japan Board of Education Textbook.
Amazing Grace
Shuken Shuppan  Polestar textbook English Communication

Preface:  Japanese / Japan is  one of the leading donors in humanitarian aid around the world.   They have donated billions of yen to charities, developing countries, and startup business to just about every country on the globe.  Some Japanese have even taken matters to the extreme  to the point of poking their noses into hotspot areas like Palestine and Isreal, things the Japanese may want to avoid.  Had Japan shared its borders with an ethnic minority with its own government, the relative peace and calm of this country would be questionable.   No other country can be like nor emulate Japan.   So, where does this spirit of charity and altruism come from exactly?   Why do the Japanese feel they need to save the whole world, while caring very little for its own people?   It's the Board of Education...?  The essay below is one such example of what Japanese kids learn in school,…
