By and large, to cross half the world to have sex in Tokyo, probably, is not worth it.
Of course, this country has always been shrouded in legends about charming women who can deliver unearthly pleasure, but the reality is prosaic: a foreigner will have to be content with little.
Tokyo sex tourism addresses
Everyone who comes to Tokyo for entertainment has long learned the main address – Kabuki-te quarter. In the eastern part of the bustling Shinjuku district, Tokyo’s main red-light street is located. True, those who were in these places about 10 years ago will sigh disappointedly. The city authorities, who are fighting against all kinds of debauchery, are doing well: “funny establishments” are literally disappearing before our eyes. However, if you hurry, you will still have time to see a piece of the former Kabuki-te. Start your journey around this quarter at dusk. Everyone will find a passion for everyone.
For bibliophile intellectuals, an extensive selection of pornographic publications will be found in these parts. An abundance of cinema halls will immediately catch your eye. Quite decent films come here to watch, but most viewers crave “romantic pornography” – a favorite genre of sexually preoccupied Japanese teenagers and trying to compare with them in the intellectual development of local kidult. Want harder and hotter? Take one of the alleys. Here, everything is grown-up, no eroticism and romance: only straightforward pornographic tapes are shown.
You can go to the practical part and start hunting in one of the local drinking or “health-improving” institutions: prostitution is officially prohibited, so if you decide to find a brothel, look among massage parlors, bars with topless waitresses, strip clubs and “special baths” – that’s exactly how, after the turmoil of the Turks, they began to call the former Turkish baths, which turned into real brothels in Japan.
In the same place entertainment is concentrated for adherents of non-traditional relationships. Nearby is the sexual minority quarter of Ni-teme and you can find a huge number of clubs with “same-sex” shows.
If you are not attracted by the mechanism noted by many Japanese professionals, you will be able to get acquainted with “decent” girls in the youth and party district of Shibuya, where the largest number of bars and nightclubs in the city are concentrated. So, if you are young bodily or at least soul, try to try your luck in this area of simple and cheap entertainment.
Problems where to go with the beauty you like will not arise. In Tokyo, there are many love-hotels – hotels designed specifically for love. You can easily notice these buildings from afar: they can look like medieval castles or spaceships, numbers can be both ordinary and unique – decorated in the style of past centuries or Barbie’s room. The main principle of such establishments is confidentiality: entrance and exit are separate, keys are issued automatically, even the numbers of cars in the parking lot are covered with special tablets.
The cost of apartments is usually low – 35-80 euros per room, so the “love nests” are sometimes used by travelers who do not want to book the usual rather expensive Tokyo hotels. The main disadvantage is that you cannot reserve a room for several days.

Have you gone to the “merry quarter” for geishas? Have to disappoint you. Although representatives of this profession still exist in Japan, their services are fabulously expensive and are intended only for local men. The lot of gaijin-foreigners are girls from Korea, Mongolia and the eastern part of Russia, covered with a thick layer of snow-white powder.
Since the demand for geisha is great, and the legends about their special art are passed from mouth to mouth around the world, an easier option has appeared – hostesses. These are more accommodating ladies who can “dilute” the male company for a fee, share a meal with the stronger sex, and brighten up their leisure time. To invite a lovely creature to the table costs about 40 euros. There is no question of a direct and honest exchange of money-sex. For a fee, you are guaranteed to receive only a pleasant interlocutor and a chance to persuade her to continue the evening that began so beautifully, and at the same time the opportunity to amuse one’s own male vanity, once again confirming the qualifications of an experienced seducer. The girl, in turn, reserves the right to complete an acquaintance at the cocktail stage, although she does not always use this right. As practice shows, the lady’s pliability is directly proportional to what you give for her drink (although there are, of course, exceptions).
Such girls put on a kimono, make-up their faces and are a kind of simplified export, popular version of a geisha – especially for foreigners who are eager for oriental exoticism, clearly giving way to real professional geisha and education, and other skills. In these positions in Japan, amateur lovers often work as students to pay for the next semester.
