I was treated to some very cold summer plums that had been soaked in sake for almost a year. These chilled sour sweet plumes went so very well with the cold summer namazake I had. A nice alternative to the usual rice crackers and salty bits most people usually get if there at home drinking a rice brew.

The unpasteurized liquid goodness when drunk washes away all of the fatigue associated with summer time heat and humidity. Brewed in Nagano where some of the best koji is molded to produces some of the finest complexity in sake in Japan. You don't want to miss this one. Grab a bottle if you get a chance.

The plumes were from my other mother's mother in Fukushima, and no they are not radioactive. Good sake and sake marinated summer plumes may or may not appeal to every palate. The sour sweetness and natural freshness from a namazake may pass off as a bit too much. I liked it and thought it went well together, in moderation.

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…
