are old news and a new trend.
Like, love and kink, Tokyo-style.
Oh, love hotels.
It’s exactly as it sounds: a place for the sex. You can choose 1-3 hours or the night.
You might have heard Japan is renowned for its sky-high service standards and rent-a-doing-it-rooms are no exception. Jacuzzi tubs, toiletries, porn, robes, irons, condoms, karaoke (duh, it’s Japan), drinks and snacks are all de rigeur. Then there are the themes…cages, aquariums, Hello Kitty in a bondage swing, fucking carou- actually, this is so much better.
Japan is so damn good at a theme. In that realm, the bars are also awesome. Alice in Wonderland seems particularly popular and of course, the anime. Or say tonight, I want glowing eyeball cocktails while getting the crap scared out of me in a haunted spaceship while avoiding ninja stars being thrown by Technicolor horsemen. Minus the spaceship, this can happen.
But I digress.
A note on anonymity and love hotels: most enable an affair remarkably well. Zero contact with another human is absolutely possible- use the underground parking garage, touchscreen your room of choice, insert cash or a card and voilà. It’s that easy. Then there’s the other end of the spectrum: after checking-in at the front desk, if there’s a wait for a room, just chill out with other people waiting to do it by playing pool, getting a chair massage or throwing some darts around.
The love hotel experience is such customizable fun in this city.
And then there are the young kids…asking to get their eyeballs licked, followed by conjunctivitis. Young girls are especially keen on wearing eyepatches with pride- that’s right, bitches- I got herpes of the eye because I got so many people to tongue my eyeball. Y’jealous?
My homeland is so fucking weird, y’all.

I was wondering how you were going to put Love hotels & eyepatches in the same article. My mind was entertaining weird situations and ways in which people could use eyepatches during the deed.
Japan can be weird, particularly the eyeball thing. Other crazy stuff i can understand, but licking eyeballs seems quiet unusual no matter how i look at it.
So I’m pretty sure BDSM Hello Kitty had an eyepatch 😉
And, yes, the eyeball trend IS so damn weird, which makes me curious about what’s next…
I’ve visited my share of love hotels in Roppongi and Nagoya, haven’t seen the aquarium themed one yet. Did have a Tarzan and Jane experience though. Good times!
Funnily enough I have yet to do a Roppongi debauch. Tarzan & Jane: I’m picturing an outdoors ‘room’ with really strong, swingy vines- shit, way too literal, yeah?
The walls were painted in jungle fashion, the bed with zebra-print sheets, the tub with faux-rocks, and of course… The costumes.
Yeah… You know those little “toy” boxes they have for purchasing goodies? It had his and her jungle thongs you could buy also… Pretty funny, we bought a set just for laughs.
Dammit, totally missed out on surprise goody boxes 😦
Haha, now you have something to look forward to during your next visit😉
I will demand a treasure chest full of goody boxes…I imagine this communication going over magnificently 🙂
You sure know a lot about love hotels…
This is pretty interesting though and omg the eyeball licking.
Oh there are sooo many fools who can best my knowledgeX1,000!
I’m calling neck gouging as the next trend 😉
