Mori Tower Roppongi

Canon EOS 60DCanon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

It goes without saying  that Tokyo has some of the most futuristic and most well designed buildings in the world.    One of the nice things about shooting up here is that no matter what lens you use, there's always something unique and interesting to snap.  

Mori Tower is a 54 story mixed skyscraper built right in the heart of Tokyo.   It is a center piece of urban development, and the most iconic symbol in Roppongi.    Everybody goes here, whether it be for the dinner date, brunch, and shopping expedition, Mori Tower has something to offer just about everybody.   Expect to see corporate offices like Goldman Sachs, Gree, Google Japan, and many more here.

There is this huge spider which I have no idea what it's there for.  

Million yen Condos
There are million yen a month condominiums for the jet set and the super rich who live in opulence beyond my means.   They drive in luxury cars and eat exquisite meals daily, and the enjoy the status that comes with living in one of the most exciting cities in the world.  

 I shot with a lens that has a shallow depth of field, so it forced me to be a little more creative than I would like.   I usually want to just rely on a good zoom lens for shooting.   This time around I had to settle for the pancake.  

Bumped up the photo specs. to get more of an architectural balance to this photo.   You can see the shapes and reliefs along the middle and edges of the building.  

Mori Gardens is the centerpiece for Mori Towers.   At night the place is lit up and has a totally different feel and dynamic to it.   In the afternoon the place is a huge draw for aspiring artists, elderly, and children.  
It's a Japanese garden, a very small one, yet it's charming and is just enough for those who want to enjoy the flowers and the greenery, even the kids enjoy playing around with the flora.

It's a pleasant place to visit, especially on a Sunday afternoon when there's nothing to do, and you've got plenty of time on your hands.  There's a Barcardi Bar that serves a pretty modest Mohito and snacks.  There's outdoor table seating with nice views of the garden.     Great theaters and eateries with imported beers from Europe.   The museums here are great, too.   City view has some nice bars as well if you choose to go up.  

Excellent place to take guests on your next trip.

Do Japanese Women Feel Uncomfortable in Bathing Suits?

Unless you have been to Japan, and have frequented its many beaches, you really do not know. The junk press rarely gets it right. I am here to tell you that Japanese women wear it and bare it all here. They wear thongs, t-backs, two pieces, and one piece. For the most part, they are not ashamed. Surveys that claim otherwise may be focusing on a very limited group of women, and that also includes the pathological liars who have no idea whether they are telling the truth or not.

In Western societies like the U.S.A., we are a nation of fat people with anorexic standards. We promote junk food and overnight diet fads that wind up making us fatter and less healthy. Americans remember the weight loss drug  "fin fin, " we remember the claims it made about weight loss and the subsequent disastrous side-effects. Japanese women in general avoid drug use of any kind for weight loss. They tend to focus more on either starving themselves, or eating healthier food in very limited quantit…

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…
