Kakunodate: Pictures

(Theme Music for this post : Pictures and Indian Summer by John Beltran)

There are beautiful women in every prefecture in Japan I think, however, according to the legend the famed Akita Bijin, or Akita beauty, is regarded as absolutely the most beautiful Japanese woman in all of Japan. The subject in this picture is beautiful indeed and she also has perfect teeth.

I love the clean look. In Japanese it's called 清楚なきれい or seisou for neat and clean, and kirei for pretty. light make-up on the face or none at all is fine. Who needs make-up? Ask the Egyptians and the Chinese, or some Japanese men who want to imitate the natural clean beauty of the Japanese women. Why are they wearing make-up? What are they trying to conceal or protect?

Tradition is good. I love tradition. I love how beautiful a Japanese woman looks in a traditional gown, especially one with a beautiful brocade. Tradition speaks volumes to me.

And then there's the ordinary Plane Jane types which I like the most, in terms of personal preference. Simple black hair with just a sprinkling of grey, beautiful clean mochi white skin, aged between 30 and 40, nihonshu drinker, onsen lover, Shinto worshipper, average looking, big hips, ass, and toned legs and an incredible rack. The best!

Beauty is subjective.


  1. The juiciest ichigo is not necessarily the prettiest. Beauty is defined in many ways, not always what pleases the eye. I share your love of beauty in the Japanese woman.

  2. Hi Cymorrow,

    Right. The juiciest ichigo, nice. haha...I like that one.
    Thank you for commenting.

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,…
