In Edo Japan, the nape of the neck was seen as the most sensuous part of the body.

    1. Thank you, Haruko-chan. I hope you were being complemented when you heard that word. Do you still live in Japan? I live in Nagoya. Toyota City is very near where I live. I have loved Japan for many years. I hope you are having a similar experience.

      1. Unfortunately I don’t live in Japan any longer. Our stay in Toyota City was for one year only. I hope to move back to Japan someday though. I absolutely loved it there. Of course I have been to Nagoya many times, since it is so close to Toyota City. It will be great to catch a few glimpses of Nagoya through your blog.
