After sumo, refreshments in a traditional setting is definitely in the works. コクキドウ or ko-ku-ki-do is a traditional Japanese style tea house next door to the sumo arena.   After six beers and yakitori I needed to refresh my palate with sesame cream soft ice cream, fruit, and some hot barley tea.

The dessert is called Anmitsu, and has been around for decades.  It's got red azuki beans, jelly, fruit, and sometimes ice cream.   You pour black sesame sugar over it to give it texture.  Enjoy.  When finished wash it all down with hot barley tea.

If you need a little more, then order the coffee.  Japan's coffee culture is on the same level as Europe now and is no longer playing catch up.  Trust me.  Not to include espresso, though.  Still have a ways to go.

Directions are really simple.   Right near the Ryogoku Station near the main street.  Lovely Jukujo are there to assist you.


  1. Good coffee for japanese people. Also at Tokyo I can grab hot coffees from vending machines It was brillant..:)

  2. Also We have traditional Turkish coffe. You should try.;)

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…
