Islam in Japan

Islam in Japan

Preface:  Last General in Japan, me.   The soul of the nation in his hands, in Japan.
[ “ Islam is the single fastest growing  religion in the world.  Even in Japan Islam has taken root with a growing presence in major cities across the nation, even in the countryside.  At what cost to the soul of Japan, I say…?]

Why I think Japan should closely regulate all religious organizations and enforce stricter guidelines through constitutional amendments.   

Although Islam is one of the smallest minority faiths in Japan next to Christianity, its wide spread appeal has grown exponentially.    There are a  little over a dozen or so Mosques spread across these islands with one , one in particular, that has been newly-renovated called “Babul Islam Masjid” in Tochigi Prefecture, a pristine, flat, farmland about an hour outside of Tokyo.     The function of a mosque is to provide a place for Muslims to be cultivated and to receive spiritual mentorship, so of all places I was wondering why Tochigi, a sparsely populated area?

Babul  not only serves as a community and cross cultural center for the locals, but also as a place of worship for Muslims.   The locals are often invited to Babul  to learn about Islam and its teachings, and to participate in cross cultural understanding of the Islamic faith.   These actions foster a sense of community trust and friendship that has lasted for years.   

First, let’s understand a little about the local people here.  Japanese are naive, polite, and respectful.   Japanese are tolerant in most cases to foreign religions in Japan.  They treat everything with suspicion, at first,  with a warm smile being careful not to break cultural protocol.   However, when it comes to food, music, and fashion the Japanese have become more accepting of change, but when it comes to matters of religion, the locals have expressed reservation.   Yes.  Some Japanese have be indoctrinated into the Islamic faith while some outright accept all foreign religions into their country, even though they are not religious themselves.

Second, how the Japanese express religious adherence is different from the Western world.  Most Japanese are not religious at all, but yet the Shinto and Buddhist faith is uniquely bound to Japanese culture and are the underpinning of Japan’s identity.   When the Japanese pray at their alters, some pray to “nothing or no-one ” at all as a show of their “Japanese(ness)”  In other words, just ostensibly without actually believing in who they are praying to, while others pray to a deity for protection, health, and prosperity.    There’s a split here under the veneer of cultural homogeneity and this is where foreign religions, namely  Islam, is quietly  inserting itself.

( “ The need to believe in a real God paradigm “) 

The reasons why Christians and Muslims  have been able to live  in harmony   together in society, for centuries in some countries, is because  they recognize there is one god and that there are laws that govern their actions and morals even if they read from a different book.  There are also lineage and blood line  issues at play here too.   In Japan’s case, the  Japanese used to recognize the polity of the Emperor of Japan as a living god generations ago, but not today.   These days it’s purely for show and pomp to fawn over royalty being paraded down the street.  The emperor disavows those who loved him as a god - Yasukuni.   Furthermore, there is no Biblical connection with the God of Abraham in this country and the gods of Japan, yet the Japanese can live in harmony with these religions, all because of an American mandated constitution?

Japanese are searching for a renewed sense of  identity as many either rarely or  no longer embrace traditions.   It’s like they are searching for something greater than themselves, but can’t articulate what exactly they are searching for.  

( "Sometimes Western religions offer an escape…")

The mastermind, Mr. Shumei Okawa, behind the Nanking Massacres and the horrors of WW2  was the first man to translated the Koran into Japanese from his sickbed in a Tokyo hospital.   Claiming insanity he was judicially pardoned and allowed to live out his life in peace.    Some of the earliest  indoctrinations of Islam came from this man nearly 60 years ago.   Of course, most Japanese have no knowledge of Shumei Okawa, and most have no knowledge of the Koran either.    The point here, is that if you do not know your past, how can you prepare for the future?  What about the posterity of the Japanese race….?  Japan has experimented with Christianity for almost 200 years, and at what cost?   Is Japan more moral or more backwards?   Is it more spiritual or more banal?    Originality, you say?    Maybe Christianity imparts virtues through Christian education and Christian schools where little girls and taught to be modest and descent.   Or, when little boys are taught the ten commandments.  How deep are the roots of Christianity in Japan?

( “ Islam has to be looked at deeply.   There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim especially when most of Islam is antithetical to the West thereby making it incompatible with Japanese ways, Communism too”).

Those of us living in the diaspora and including those inbound on “White flight” know why we are here.... It's called assimilation.  There is nothing wrong with it.  It is quite normal to embrace the host country if this is where you call home.    We don't feel the need to change the local landscape of the host country to fit into our world because if you do you'll be like this...(next paragraph).

The white man is full of racial resentment against the Islamization of his once proud national heritage, whereas the American leftist  negroes who now croon  over  Talib  and Omar are worshipping  at the corns of their feet while  licking the chapped skin off their heels searching for crumbs to eat.   They know where their prosperity came from, but choose those who hate America.

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…
