Tengumai: Junmai Nama Genshu

The Tengumai brand has become synonymous with words like gamy and wild. What that means in laymen's terms is nihonshu that's tangy and bold flavored. How it gets that way has a lot to do with how bacteria is used during the sake making process called Yamahai(Shikomi). Just know this, sake made this way is the most traditional, and there are only a hand full of brewers who master the technique.

The classification this sake falls under is called Junmai/premium ( no alcohol added. Just water and koji). Nama( unpasturized) Genshu (undiluted). The seimaibuai is 60%, which is how much rice is left after milling.

The brewer is called Shata Brewery and they have consistently received gold awards in National Sake Competitions in Japan. The significants for me choosing this sake for tonights posts is because #1 this particular version of the sake I am drinking tonight is *only* available in Japan. #2 because I'm home and all the hot springs in my area are closed due to the quake! #3 mother is home with her real kids. #4 All the young girls are brain dead and sake-retarded. #5 Ichibay is scared to hang out with me. #6 I can't access Sendai to help out. OK. So, I'll educate the world about one of the things I like to indulge myself in. Sake ( ask - ay).

The nice thing about living in Japan is that you have so many opportunities to try real genshu and nama type sake. My blog is full of sake related posts about nama(s), and genshu(s), and Junmai(s). If you stick around long enough you'll gain a lot of knowledge in famous brands that enjoyed both here in Japan and in the U.S. I am by no means a sake master, more like a sake drinker and I've been at it for long time.

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…
