Rambling Narrative of Travels, Thoughts, and Embellishments

Magome – Old Japanese Post Town in Kiso Valley

Magome is old Japanese Post Town on the old Nakasendo Road which used to connect Tokyo to Kyoto during the Edo Period (1603-1867). Travelers would stop at towns like Magome to stay the night and for checkpoint inspections as travel was highly regulated in those days.

Magome has some really nice old fashion buildings and the main part is closed to vehicle traffic. From Magome there is a two-hour hike to another post town, Tsugamo, but I didn’t have the right winter gear for it. Maybe next time.

Brief Interview with Cute sexy Peruvian Waitress of Japanese Descent in Nagoya

In Japan, you always run into interesting people. While I was chowing down on a burger at Shooters in Nagoya I happened to meet a cute sexy Peruvian waitress whose grandfather was Japanese. I decided to interview her in order to dig deep into the complex social nuances of a foreigner of Japanese descent in Japan and their immersion into Japanese culture and….uh….errr… oh, hell! Did I mention she was cute and sexy? I really have no other reason to upload this video except for that. I was just trying to rationalize it, sorry!
