The L.A files. Not so ancient Japanese (secret)

IMG_20180914_140000.jpgGood afternoon faithful reader, a few days ago sifting through business cards, I happened upon a one time very coveted and exclusive business card. The card had a number to a certain Ms M and it gained one entry to an after hours that rocked and rolled unto dawn and some. Ms M ‘sho ’nuff liked me. Homeboy at the time  Japanese  was  a top of my game back in ‘Y2K and meeting her for the first time, I used  Keigo (敬語honorific form of  Japanese) in our conversation. She knew immediately I was no run of the mill yellow fever sprung White Boy that could not tell the difference between a Vietnamese or Japanese. She also knew I was a very interested in Japanese women. Some say the floating world (浮世絵 pronounced Ukiyo) ceased to exist in 19th century Japan. I’ve news for you G, it still exists. Perhaps not as it did in its classic state yet it exists from Japan to Honolulu to L.A to NYC and anywhere you find major Japanese communities

It all began innocently enough meeting a Miss Ichihashi on my stomping grounds of Venice Beach, CA. I had no particular interests in Japanese girls, women or culture at the time. I was just a horny G.I back home from two tours of duty in 1993. Young Miss Ichihashi sure was fine and of particular note, very well endowed and equally as horny as I. To cut to the chase homie, I fell for her like a ton of bricks. She liked me well enough but, unbeknownst  to me at the time, I was just part of her floating world. She had been working her way around not only the beach but L.A in general. As I said I will keep it short a simple. She left me and returned to Japan. I was heartbroken and even more so learning of her doing pornography and tricking around L.A

Well I took it upon myself to learn the Japanese language  and everything about Japan I could. I wont go into all the details Etc as that would take a 500 or more page book, which I am working on.  What I will tell you is, not only did I earn several degrees in Japanese from major universities but I learned this little tid bit about 1998. Many Japanese girls at te time (and to a lesser degree today) have a fantasy fellow and American dream so to say. To vacation or study in America, and get down with either a American White or Black fella, depending on what catches her interest while growing up in Japan. Say for instance, she is interested in surfing, therefore she gets totally into the surfing culture and bingo come to the U.S and gets herself a surfer boy. Once I learned this fact, it was on and cracking so to speak and the fact I knew Japanese was just an added arrow in my quiver. The a fore mentioned club was a favorite hunting ground of mine. I’ve heard through sources the place had been busted but so the after hours is no longer  in operation but the bar is.  It makes little difference to me now, I know longer run the streets or city or take part in that sort of life style.
