Central Park in Tokyo



Hama-Rikyu Gardens

Just go there and see the beauty of both urban and natural landscapes.    Witness migratory birds and ducks move through the air and water.  Watch as nature unfolds its beauty.  Contemplate on the quiet pond and behold the clear blue sky in its reflection.

If ever there were parks that exemplified the beautiful dynamic between modernity and tradition, then there are only a few great Japanese garden parks in Japan.  In Japan, you have garden parks that are often called gardens which are actually just beautifully maintained parks, whereas in North America the garden is a place replete with beautiful flowers and fauna, a place to go where you want to study the botanical  bounty of  a city or a town.  


The Japanese garden park is much more dynamic and aesthetically pleasing to the senses when you understand the history.   Sometimes a Japanese garden could be in the form of a stone garden, sometimes called a dry rock garden.  It could also be in the form of a wide open space with beautiful spatial dynamics that conjure up imagery of the distant past.  Or, it could be a humble little garden park with some seasonal flowers sprinkled hither and thither along a path, with some patches of bamboo and shrubs nestled away somewhere near a thicket, or even a bubbling brook.  


I love Tokyo.

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…

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 …
