It’s a familiar nighttime routine: You are out in Shimbashi, drunk, and the last train has passed. What to do?

While pondering the predicament a young Chinese gal materializes on a nearby corner. “Excuse me, sir?”

Thus begins a survey of quickie sex services from weekly tabloid Shukan Asahi Geino (Sept. 15), which finds that prices are plummeting in the current deflationary environment.

“We can get you a room for 5,000 yen,” she continues.

“Ah, but I’ve only got 3,000 yen,” the crafty writer counters.

In Tokyo’s entertainment areas, below-the-belt services for 5,000 yen are in abundance, but many lucky lads are getting away with much less.

“A hand-job with light body-touching is an appealing package for girls who want to make fast cash,” comments a writer who covers underground businesses. “And for businessmen with tight wallets, it is an economical way to experience sexual pleasure.”

It was assumed that if prices were to fall too low customers would become cautious, but that has not been the case. “The trade has expanded into amateur girls,” the underground writer continues. “You know, to become involved in this business it doesn’t take much effort to recruit clients, and nowadays the competition to offer the lowest prices just keeps getting hotter.”

After finishing up in Shimbashi, the tabloid’s reporter moves over to Shinjuku’s Kabukicho red-light district, where he enters Anpuri-tei. The 20-minute course here runs a mere 2,700 yen and includes a hand service (2,000 yen) and room rental (700 yen).

Asagei’s writer enters a room and picks up the phone. Soon after an 18-year-old with big eyes, similar in appearance to actress Haruka Ayase, appears before him.

Various options are included, such as verbal abuse, blowing, the use of lotion, and panty and bra peeks. However, when time is up, the stroking stops — win or lose. But frankly, are there any losers at this price?

Outfitted in a tank top and pink underwear and seated atop a pillow, she utters a polite “excuse me” before proceeding with the pulling process.

The reporter winds up coming out on top, even vowing a return visit. Should you, dear reader, be interested in a similar experience Anpuri-tei’s number is provided: 03-6233-7499. And tell ‘em Shukan Asahi Geino sent ya! (K.N.)

Shukan Asahi Geino Sept. 8A new erotic photo book is achieving brisk sales in spite of not revealing any of the faces of the female models nor full nudity, reports weekly tabloid Shukan Asahi Geino (Sep. 8).

The magazine says that the book emphasizes the subtle aspects of swimsuits and uniforms: The skirt of a sailor suit gently rises to expose high up a thigh; a sock is visible just before a change into a swimsuit; and an exercise session gently reveals a bare midriff.

The book “Natsufuku Joshi (Summer Clothing Girls, 夏服女子),” by Million Publishing, is recording tremendous sales, having ascended to the top of the photo book section of Amazon.jp at the end if July (and still holding that position now).

“Over the last year or two, it’s become something of a trend for this type of book to appear on shelves,” says Shunichi Kamada, manager of the Aratama book shop, located in Tokyo’s Akihabara district. “By not showing the faces of the models, the reader’s imagination and fantasies can be expanded. This particular title has become its own genre.”

As Kamada indicates, there are various titles of this type available, so the success of “Natsufuku Joshi” has even surprised the creators.

Yuki Sugawara, who edited the book, says that promotion was limited. “The Akibablog, which features current events in Akihabara, kick-started interest. What attracted the most attention was a quote that read, ‘We can probably smell that obi‘” — referring to a belt that wraps around a summer kimono.

The photographer behind the pictures is Masaki Okado. “I didn’t use posed pics,” he explains. “I just focused on moments where a girl momentarily drops her guard while wearing summer clothes.”

Natsufuku JoshiIt was a matter of focusing on eroticism hidden within everyday activities — that’s what is driving sales, says the photographer. “While looking at other books, I felt that there was something that wasn’t right,” he says. “Perhaps this has something to do with the particular photographer’s personal feelings. We decided to incorporate the perspective of various staff members after thorough discussions to come up with a consensus.”

“The camera angles and lighting are also carefully crafted,” bookstore manager Kamada adds. “Focusing on high, dark blue socks is also an example of the book’s attention to details.”

“Natsufuku Joshi” (2,100 yen) also comes with a 60-minute DVD. “It’s a good buy,” Kamada concludes. (K.N.)

Shukan Asahi Geino June 23It has been widely reported that products sourced from the agriculture and fisheries industries of Fukushiima Prefecture have faced intense scrutiny since the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11. But who would have thought that bias would bode for blow-jobs, too?

Freelance fuzoku journalist Teruhiko Aoyama tells weekly tabloid Shukan Asahi Geino (June 23) that even before the nuclear incident, some regulars at sex clubs liked to look down on girls and verbally berate them. “Sadistic customers tend to fall in that category,” says the sex scribe, “and now they’ll give girls a hard time when they find out they are from Fukushima.”

It is common for many shops to disclose the hometowns of girls as a means of introduction. Prior to the earthquake, Fukushima locals carried an image of being passionate and nice. Now it is only about radiation. The magazine cites one deri heru (out-call) shop called Umichan in which an exchange regarding a Fukushima gal might go something like, “I forgot her name, but is the radiation here today?”

Fukushima working girls who moved to Tokyo before March 11 and those who came to the capital thereafter are now hiding their origins.

“The fuzoku industry is competitive,” says a reporter of an evening daily responsible for the fuzoku section. “Deri heru shops used to never offer a deep kiss but today that’s a common service. So now, when a (Fukushima) girl tries to give a kiss as a way of a greeting, a customer will refuse. They’ll say the saliva may contain radiation. The ’69′ service is a no-no because love juice may contain radiation, and also no blow-jobs. Some girls have become very hurt by these conditions.”

In one case, a client said to a girl, “What are you going to do from now? Don’t have kids. In Chernobyl, kids became deformed. Yours will be too.”

Fuzoku journalist Aoyama continues, “With hitozuma shops” — that is, establishments staffed by married ladies — “the conversation usually starts off with, ‘How old is your kid?’ Then once it is revealed that she is from Fukushima, they’ll look at her as if she’s really dirty, like trash. Then the client will suddenly ask to change a girl prior to the commencement of service. Some guys will even file a complaint with the shop.”

One out-call girl from Fukushima was told by a client to wash her hair because the thought of radiation was making it difficult for him to get hard.

Some managers are suggesting that girls lie and say they are from Akita or Yamagata prefectures, but the slight difference in accents makes that challenging.

A female employee at a hitozuma shop tells the magazine that the sight of Prime Minister Kan on television makes her sick. While she was lucky to win temporary housing, she adds, “You still have to pay utility bills. I was hoping that donations would cover that but I haven’t received anything yet. I am a single mom. This has left me with no choice but to work at a fuzoku shop. But in being from Fukushima, I get mistreated.

“Politicians are only concerned about their power,” she continues. “I don’t want to see Kan’s face.”

Aoyama says that some some clients are going so far as to carry Geiger counters with them to hotel rooms. “They’ll check the radiation level by putting it against the girl’s privates,” he says. (A.T.)

Shukan Asahi Geino Mar. 31Weekly tabloid Shukan Asahi Geino is likely not the first publication one might peruse for updates on the ongoing developments following the Great Tohoku Earthquake — that is, unless there is an interest in how the region’s sex-related establishments are faring.

In its Mar. 31 issue, the tabloid somewhat surprisingly reports that Miyagi Prefecture’s biggest adult entertainment area in Sendai is functioning on a limited basis.

The lifelines of Sendai, which has suffered greatly following the Mar. 11 earthquake and subsequent tsunami, are starting to come back to life. Shops have begun to operate as their services are gradually being restored.

From the area’s largest red-light district, Kokubuncho, located in the city’s Aoba Ward, a reporter tells Asagei that electricity and water services are slowly coming back to life. “Some shops have started to sell yakitori on the streets during the day,” the source adds. “A convenience store has reopened and there are long lines. Ladies can be seen wearing make-up and sporting mini-skirts. We are beginning to see the light.”

However, only some entertainment establishments are in operation during the evening.

“A few bars are open, but they don’t have any food, only drinks,” continues the same reporter. “Only one kyabakura club is open, and the three hostesses who were able to show up for work were accommodating ten customers. These guys looked to be locals in their 40s and 50s.”

During the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995, soaplands offered their bathtubs to those impacted by the disaster. Sendai, the tabloid postulates, has not yet reached that stage.

In midst of this, however, deri heru joints (out-call sex operations) are functioning, with some even offering housing to displaced female staff members. The magazine advises that services are limited to the central part of the city.

One of them is Celeb Garden, which began operation four days after the earthquake.

“While customers are calling, we are just operating on a limited basis,” says a representative of the club, whose Web site offers a hotel plan that starts at 17,000 yen for 70 minutes. “Unfortunately, out of 100 girls, there are a few whose whereabouts we cannot confirm. I just wanted to reassure them by opening the office to offer them a place to stay if they had lost homes.”

The manager at club S-style tells the tabloid that they are also trying re-establish contact with some female employees. “One of our girls lives in the central section of Sendai,” says the manager of the club, which has been steadily receiving reservations from customers. “She encouraged me by saying that the club has to keep moving forward. Our competitors may be closing their shops, but we cannot let all the lights go out in Sendai.” (K.N.)

Shukan Asahi Geino Mar. 10When it comes to creative devices for the purpose of self-abuse, Japan simply can’t be beat. As Shukan Asahi Geino (Mar. 10) excitedly reports, Tenga, the nation’s most innovative supplier of hand-held, synthetic vaginas and related items has set its sights on mainland China, where the rocks 600 million men are hoping to get off have nothing to do with rare earth minerals.

Tenga is tying up with two other firms, AV producer Soft On Demand and its affiliate SOD Create, to establish a joint venture in Shanghai under the name Yaxin Trading Co. (雅心商貿易公司 in Chinese).

A source tells Geino that while Tenga is prepared to go through regular business channels, the company is concerned over regulations on contents of adult videos.

“China of late has become quite receptive to adult goods,” says a Japanese trading firm employee based in Guangzhou City. “You can already find specialty shops in most cities. Most tend to be located in small and run-down places, but every now and then you run into really upscale shops as well.”

China is said to hold numerous clandestine exhibitions of sex-related goods.

“They’re as big as some of the major trade shows,” the aforementioned source goes on to say. “In order to satisfy the requirement that it be related to ‘culture,’ they will put up exhibits showing traditional erotic prints and sex education materials, but they have plenty of other stuff on display, as well as available for purchase on the spot. There’s nothing sordid or raunchy about the displays at all, and you can even see young couples giggling as they pick up the items and discuss them.

“You can also see men in their late 60s watching sex videos, hoping to bone up on their love techniques,” he chuckles.

Kemuta Otsubo, a writer familiar with the adult-related business, is convinced Tenga is going to take China by storm.

“When I went to the ‘Macau Adult Expo’ the SOD booth was mobbed by Chinese,” he says. “Japanese domestic versions of Tenga goods are already being sold in Hong Kong to much acclaim. I think they’ll modify their package labeling for the Chinese domestic market, but otherwise sell the items as-is.”

The Guangzhou-based trading firm staffer thinks the entry by Japanese firms spells “happy news” for Chinese men, who, due to the nation’s strict one-child policy must “generate their own electricity in-house,” so to speak.

“Workers who come to the cities from the countryside will carry them back home with them, and before you know it the products will get ‘di-semen-ated’ nationwide,” he winks.

So then let’s aim carefully for the tumescent China market, where 600 million wankers eagerly await release, cheers Geino.

But the trading firm staffer adds a precautionary note.

“China is under a single-party dictatorship that swings between ‘open’ and ‘closed’ depending on which way the winds are blowing,” he warns. “If people start treating sex too openly, then there are concerns the door might suddenly slam shut.” (K.S.)

Shukan Asahi Geino Feb. 3Japan’s ongoing recession is forcing Otsuka’s collection of adult clubs to drop prices but maintain sufficient erotic services, drools Shukan Asahi Geino (Feb. 3).

Passing through the single ticket gate at JR Otuska Station, located in Tokyo’s Toshima Ward, and moving through the North Exit reveals a shopping street filled with what are referred to as “pink salons.”

“I was bit shocked by the high-quality girls available at pink salons in Otsuka,” explains Mantaro Kikko, a fuzoku writer. “You know they say about Otsuka: ‘get in, get out — and for less.’”

For the uninitiated, such an establishment supplies non-coital sexual services. Patrons will typically receive turns with three different ladies — referred to as 花びら回転 (hanabirakaiten, or literally flower petal rotation).

The tabloid reports that in Otsuka prices have fallen to a mere 2,000 yen for two rounds — a figure that a Tokyo Reporter staffer was able to verify at Fashion Club Hi Hi during a recent visit to the area (see photo below).

A girl who rendered services to the aforementioned journalist shared with him why she decided to work at a particular shop. “I used to work for a deri heru joint in Ikebukuro,” she says, referring to an out-call sex operation. “But there has been a major decline customer numbers due to the recession. There would be days with no customers at all.

Fashion Club Hi Hi outside the Kita Guchi Exit of JR Otsuka Station“Since I have payments to make, such as for rent,” she continues, “I cannot work jobs that pay only 980 yen per hour. While this shop in Otsuka is cheap, they offer an hourly base wage. So a minimum is secured. That is the part I find attractive. You cannot beat the recession. So it is important to secure income of some kind.”

A different club charges 3,000 yen for 30 minutes and gainfully employs a 25-year-old married gal.

Her motive for working here? “Of course it is the money,” she explains. “My hubby’s income is not enough to buy what I want. Plus it pays better than regular part-time jobs.

“There is also a low risk that I’ll run into someone I know since this is Otsuka,” she adds. “Giving a blow-job to my hubby doesn’t give me money, but here I can earn something, maybe something decent.”

Likely things will only improve for the district, claims Akira Ikoma, editor-in-chief of Ore no Tabi, a fuzoku trade magazine whose content is based on actual experiences.

“Besides salaried workers, babyboomers who will start receiving pension money will boost visits here,” the editor explains. “It will not be too long before this area will be called, ‘Harajuku for Dads.’” (K.N.)

Shukan Asahi Geino Dec. 23 “In the area around the big supermarket in front of Sugamo Station, there’s lots of pink salons that evoke the nostalgic Showa Era (1926-1989). On the street nearby you can see these nattily clad older guys negotiating with big-breasted streetwalkers who appear to be from South America,” a salaryman living in the Sugamo neighborhood of Tokyo’s Toshima Ward tells Shukan Asahi Geino (Dec. 23).

“Once deciding on a price, they’ll join arms and head off in the direction of the love hotels. When I see this, I always murmur to myself, ‘Go for it, pops!’”

The neighborhood is famous shopping street that leads up to the Koganji Temple, home to the Togenuki Jizo, a Bodhisattva to which people pray for removal of splinters.

A worker at a local izakaya tells the reporter he thinks the foreign gals who loiter on the street around the area’s love hotels had previously worked in the neon neighborhood around nearby Otsuka Station.

“Some of them formerly worked for deri heru, and it comes as a bit of a surprise to encounter blond ladies strutting up and down the street. The old ladies who shop at the supermarket can be seen walking past the girls with their purchases, and don’t give them a second thought.

Kei Shimamoto, a writer who reports on the pink trade, tells Asagei that he often hears stories about oldsters who patronize sex shops and the like.

“They’re partial to hitozuma fuzoku (shops where the female employees are married women or divorcees),” he says. “These days the sex business has been lousy since younger men don’t have any money. So the seniors living on their pensions have moved in and are providing good support.

“I talk to a lot of deri heru gals about their work, and they say they’re always impressed by customers over age 70. Say they never get rough with them and that they’re also good with their tongues — which the ladies seem to like, even if the old guys can’t get it up,” Shimamoto adds.

Another popular activity these days, Shimamoto tells the magazine, are karaoke rooms at restaurants where seniors of both sexes meet for zenra karaoke parties, at which participants strip to the buff. (K.S.)
