So we were walking around in Akihabara looking for a game store and we managed to find one that was above a a porno shop so we said why not??? Place was huge, we where the only foreigners there and after walking down the Isles full of DVD's, and anime butts we found something I wasn't expecting to actually see...........and yet there they where. Used panties and school uniforms sealed in bags with pictures of the girls who wore them. Ended up picking up a tenga egg or something like it cause it would've been weird to walk out without buying anything.
A little backstory for anyone interested haha. So back in High School I came across an JAV where the dude picks up the girl and she sits on his shoulders and then lifts her up completely off the floor and since that day I've been going to the gym and working out for the last couple of years to try it out myself. I know you might think it's a dumb reason but it's what gives me a reason to keep hitting the gym.
So there's a section in Yoshiwara that's just all Soaplands, ended up doing some research and found a foreigner friendly one. Ended up getting that nuru massage which is just a girl sliding all over you on an inflatable mat and lets just say I got to lift....only things I wont ever forget was when she said macho as she was washing me down and touching all over my upper body and Sugoi when i got to lift. Told my buddies and now they all call me Macho Sugoi lol. Couldn't rent a car and had extra spending money so we ended up going back a second time at my buddies request who we now call long time or good amaount .
Thanks for the update and link to your pictures. They were awesome! Looks like it rain a few days while you were there. Hopefully there were good days too. I have a couple of questions, I hope you don't mind answering.
The picture that you took that seems to be looking down to a park, was that taken from the tower?
It was interesting to read that at the porn shop, they sold used panties. In one of your pictures you show the panties with the back side of the girl that wore the panties. I am wondering if the pictured girl really did wear them or someone else? Very interesting.
The Soaplands section, were they just catered to men or were there services for women as well? Like you see in anime with host sites for women with attractive young men? The impression I get is no but I might be wrong.
Did you feel safe walking at night? And when you were lost, were the people friendly to provide assistance?
Is Mount Fuji only accessible via vehicle or could you not have used public transportation to get there? Like taking the train than a bus?
Thanks for sharing your adventure!
The pictures looking down where taken from the Tokyo Metropolitan building which was free to access unlike tokyo tower where they where charging the equivalent of like $65 USD to access the very top. On a clear day you can see Mnt Fujii from the metropolitan building, unfortunately it was kinda overcast that day so we couldn't see it.
The used panties in the porn shop I'm not sure if they were actually used or not by the girls in the pics. We actually almost bought a pair as a joke gift for one of our buddies but in the end neither of us wanted to have to explain it to customs lol.
I believe the Soaplands in that area are catered to men only, I didn't ask if they accepted women or many questions because the people there didn't speak much English. The one thing I do remember is when the old guy came to get me from the waiting room all he said to me in broken English was "ok it's fun time, go play" as he shoved me down the hall towards a beautiful woman lol. I actually had an interesting 20 minute conversation with the girl in mostly broken English, hand signs and the very little Japanese I know. Whole thing wasn't awkward at all surprisingly . The one pic where you can see two pairs of knees as we wait in a room with tea and a hot Towles was actually taken in the Soaplands waiting room. At first we weren't sure if they'd let us in to begin because not only where we foreigners but also not white, where both Mexican and live in Socal and work outside so we're not really dark but still have a noticeable tan. I'd go into more detail but I'm not sure if I'd get banned haha. This is where we actually went... http://www.dream7000.com/sp/trendy/
Tokyo is the safest I've ever felt in a city. So walking around late at night I felt super safe. Then again where two pretty big guys but I'd feel you'd be perfectly fine if you were a woman and by yourself. I actually carried all my money in my wallet at all times ($1800) and never felt like something bad could've happened besides maybe loosing my wallet.
Mount Fuji is only accessible via vehicle and bullet train I believe. The cost of the Shinkansen tickets where more than it would have cost us to rent a car for two days. We also wanted to get a car to go and try and visit the Japanese homies who drive around In low riders in Yokohama and listen to Mexican music. Really wanted to have a Corona with some of those guys. https://youtu.be/Ju4mz_Lr-wo
OMG! I forgot about Customs. That would be hard to explain to an American why you would purchase used (not clean - assuming) clothing.
I remember my Dad telling me that Japanese like and perform Mexican polkas as well. I did not believe him until he show me on YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz3q18iYH70. I would imagine with their narrow streets, it would be difficult to drive their "American" cars? This is so funny! It would have been a blast to have gone there and seen this for yourself. Maybe next time. Remember to get that special license. Is it difficult to get and expensive?
A new dawn approaches!!
