Two smells I like besides that of a Jukujo momma are: The smell of the interior of the first shinkansen in the morning as it pulls out of Tokyo station, and the scent of a freshly cleaned night bus as it embarks on its journey. Tokyo; its scents; its energy; all create a verve that completely identifies it as the most sophisticated mega-city in the world. It could be all the black and grey suit clad sophisticrates that create the stodgiest atmosphere during the morning rush, or the delicate scented freshly popped canned coffee that blends in so well together with everything else. I like Tokyo. There is no other place like it in the world. I say this because I've been spending more time up there these days and have been preoccupying myself with J-momma-hobbying and geeking out on delicious fusion cuisine.
Tokyo, Japan is a great pioneering city. So many great culinary delights have not only evolved here, but have also been created here like the cup noodle, canned coffee, and the first ever cup sake - Ozeki
What cup sake did to the world of sake was make it more convenient and accessible to the general public. It comes in a small glass container. You pop off the aluminum top and drink straight from the glass cup. On-the-go sake, in other words. There are many other brands of cup sake, but in this post I would like to talk a little about Maru Cup Hakatsuru sake. This is also Japan's 1# selling brand of sake and one that peaked my interest upon first sip.
I even paired a lovely Japanese Jukujo with it because like I have stated since this blogs inception, sake and Jukujo are the perfect match - never let anyone tell you differently. It goes without saying also that less oily cuisines work well, too. As for the breakdown, it's really not important. It's just cup sake and is meant to be enjoyed, not savored. It is not a competition sake. Just a good everyday common ordinary man's sake with good refinement. Most convenience stores will store them at room temperature. You can taste pretty much all of Tokyo in one sip. Yes. There are ephemeral qualities attached to inanimate objects just like there are with animate objects. Taste and smells evoke the imagination just as if you were imbibing or eating whatever it is you love. Luckily, the Jukujo model who came over spent most of her life in Tokyo, she possessed the Tokyo momma's eccentricity and energy.
Extremely well mannered; soft spoken, well aged, motherly, dainty, modest, and embodying the soft aura of the modern era urban Japanese momma-style.
Tokyo's humidity makes you want to drink. It makes you want to fuck. It makes you want to take it slow. Maru sake makes you want to enjoy all of those moments, either alone or with someone special.
Maru sake is smooth. It's fairly easy to drink even for the untrained palate. It's a refined sake. Hyogo is where this sake was born, but it's sold in large quantity here in the Tokyo Metro area and is enjoyed by everyday drinkers.
As the room temps. begin to rise, so does the need to remove her outerwear. Maru is still there to cool her down. She's ready and she's loving it. It's all over her face, too.
I chose her for her legginess as she is over 175 cm tall; according to my estimation. Very long and sexy legs. The other reason is because the symbol of Hakutsuru brewery represents a crane, a bird that has a sort of elongation, and modest, refined, and beautiful. Cranes have always been a part of asiatic history with its origins in China.
The fan with the black and white faces served to help cool her. She was feeling good. Getting in touch with her more seductive side.
And then from behind the cover of wood exposes the natural goodness of her being. She is the beauty of the urbanite. The sake beauty of urban Tokyo. Not the trendy Shibuya areas, but the lesser known areas like Meijiro, Gotanda, and Nihonbashi. She loves Japanese nihonshu. Go out today and purchase a cup. Taste the goodness.
I did a full HD interview segment with her, so please do not laugh at my Japanese skills. I was shooting with a new camera and was a little over excited about the whole shoot. Normally I am more laid back.
