The Soul of Japan: Great Beef

Countless articles have been written about Japan's premium beef steaks, but if I were to narrow down just a few places, then here is a map of my personal favorites:

On some of the listings there are links in English describing restaurants and the type of beef that they serve. The listings are all well recognized establishments that serve premium grade beef at relatively reasonable prices. I didn't include Kobe Beef mainly because of its exorbitant price ranges. I'm a firm believer that not all great tasting fatty beef have to cost a fortune. In my map the restaurants listed serve just as good or better beef than what's served in Kobe. I have had Kobe Beef and it was good, but I personally don't find it worth the hefty price tag. I know of a few more establishments myself, and will add more later. This is just a modest listing.

Japanese beef has quite a long history and is worth a try if you're ever in Japan. How beef is made in Japan has a lot to do with how the Japanese create absolutely the best product out of whatever it is they put their mind to do. This is one of them. Great fatty beef!


  1. Love Japanese beef. My favourites have to be Matsuzaka-gyu, Kobe-gyu and Hida-gyu from Gifu.

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…
