Golfing in Niigata

Gold  Echigo  Yuzawa Country Club

And no.  I am not a member.   Micheal Douglas 1993 blockbuster hit "falling down" was and still is one of my favorite movies.    I remember in one scene when he criticized an uppity wealthy white person for building huge and expensive golf courses in the inner cities when he should've been building parks  instead.   Yet, even in Japan there are numerous gold courses all over the island, and in great locations.   Big, extravagant  courses with commanding views of mountains and valleys.   Quite beautiful actually.     Even in Kawabata's snow country , Echigo Yuzawa, there's a huge golf course with some amazing views of the Echizen Mountain range.     There is information online available in English on a wide range of  golf courses in the central regions of Japan, but I haven't seen any for this area, in one of my favorite hot spa locations.    So I decided to post up this info.

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…
