  1. Disappointed

    “I still remember my first visit around 3 years ago,many younger hot guys. But I am really disappointed with so many old guys only in this sauna,Hardly see any good shape young guys. And with a relatively high entrance fee(2900?,they don't provide lube,and condoms need to request at reception,which is very inconvenient.“

  2. Good sauna

    “I visited this sauna two times as a younger westerner on two weekdays. The crowd on one day was larger but the other day was a Tuesday and slow .It is a good mix here however this sauna is laid out differently than some of the big complexes like in Thailand - more confined in the typical Japanese way which is fine. Less spread out areas for people to sit alone in can be a plus.

    There are hot tubs near the showers and also in this area they even provide a toothbrush/ razor to clean up. On one floor there are probably over 100 beds (some bunk bed/some laying on floor). This floor also contains a room with porn on the TV where you can have fun.

    Here private rooms are extra and pricey so if you are too shy you might want to consider. I will try again on a weekend“

  3. Fair place

    “I had fun every evening I was there with a few hot guys. However, I was also rejected by several so be aware this Japan. Some love you, some don't. The facilities are very large. The entrance fee is quite high if you just plan to be a couple of hours. Probably there is not another place to go if you look to see a bunch of naked guys and have some fun. All other places are way too small for anything to happen.“

  5. Great place with a lot of action

    “Went there on a Thursday night after reading the reviews here and I was not disappointed. Everything goes like Kevin was writing.
    The towel is mostly for the bath area, the robe is worn in the other levels.

    My first encounter was in the shower. They have three glory holes each. One at eye level so you can check out the other shower.
    Advise: hang your towel over the door so everyone can see that one shower is occupied. In my case it took a bare minute before a young Japanese got into the next shower. Nice detail: the walls behind are one big mirror so you can see the guy through the hole at eye level. He suggested we change to a bigger shower for some more direct fun. What we did.

    After changing into the robe I went to the 4th floor. There is one video room with a row of mattresses. The video is so so and pixeled like all porn in Japan. But when you lay down it does not take long until somebody comes and feels you up. Advice: if you lay down with your legs closed you want to be let alone. If you spread your legs you invite people to touch you. Had some nice action there.
    The other rooms at that level are darker and laid out with mattresses and double bunks. You can either sleep there or have some serious action. In the lower bed of the double bunks you have some privacy since it is pretty dark there. In all the other places you have more or less onlookers.

    And make sure to check out the Stardust room in the 5th floor. Lit with blacklight it has a great effect.

    Back down in the wet area check out the mist sauna and the steam bath. The dry sauna is not so much for action but nice nevertheless.
    During my 6 hours there I got my rocks off four times and watched countless hot action by others. Will be back for sure.“

  6. Good people. Bad service.

    “Went there just last weekend. The service is so bad and the guy in the front desk is not very welcoming. Not very nice to foreigner, tho there are lots of foreigner inside the sauna. The facility is quite good and the people cruising inside is actually coming from the bar I hang out in earlier. Lots of good looking fellas and somewhat I had a good time. Met with a lot of hot guys.. very wild and sexy experience. Just the service is so bad. But, I don't think there's any other place better than this one, because of the location right on the heart of the gay scene. Just outside the gay clubs. Just heads up for the really bad service. Still recommended to go“

  7. Fun place

    “I came here recently while in Tokyo. First time going to a bathhouse / spa. The nude bath shower area was a nice warm up to what was happening in all of the other rooms. A couple guys kept following me. It it was pretty busy around 10-11pm. I only stayed until 1am but there was a lot of Japanese and foreigners. I've never seen guys hook up in person so it was a major turn on to watch strangers play while everyone was watching. I will definitely come back next time I'm in Tokyo.“

        • Okay sauna.

          “Went there twice this week and quite okay.

          First time was a Saturday evening and quite some people there. Left around midnight to catch the last underground and people were still arriving.

          Many people stayed in the bath area on the second floor and some action there. Only visited the upstairs area with rooms once and not that much action there, most people there were resting.

          The second time was a Wednesday evening. Around the same number of people there, but more people in the common rest areas, not really resting, but lot of activity there this evening. Less people in the bath area, although still quite some there also. Seems to me that the weekdays more is happening, at least upstairs as all kind of activities were going on there the second time I went.

          This evening I returned around 11pm and while getting dressed and leaving, at least 10 guys arrived, so it stays busy till early in the mornings.

          Both times the place was clean, I think Japanese users are already more taking care of that themselves also.

          The sauna is easy to reach using the underground, just too bad they stop operation quite early. Of course one could choose to stay till after 5am and take the first service back, but for me that was too late, so had to go back earlier.

          You can't compare the sauna with saunas on Europe or Thailand, the facilities are less equipped and not as nice. The sleeping areas are different also, but as said things do happen there and it's not all about sleeping....

          Would I go back, yes when I'm in Tokyo I would, but the sauna wouldn't be a reason to book another trip there, as then I would prefer to go to Bangkok or Europe more.“

  10. Start here

    “Start here. For most, it is a good place to start your exploration. Only thing is you need to bring your condom.“

  11. Unbelievable

    “Went there on Saturday, November 27, 2016. The place was full. All the beds were taken and people standing or lying on the floor on spare futons. It was an amazing experience for. People were sleeping naked. I was approached by many Japanese and foreigners and so I chose a gorgeous looking Japanese who spoke fluent English. He was also muscular which to me was a big turn on. I left around 5am for my hotel and later for Haneda airport. I cant get enough of that place. I just love it! My favourite place is the room that has thevlight on. I was thoroughly entertained , both as a spectator and a player. I dream about that place. Facilities- modern, clean, spacious. I cant complain! Highly recommend it. I will definitely go there again when I visit Tokyo next.“

  12. Nice place and friendly to foreigners

    “Went here the day after Halloween and it was quite busy. This location is a slightly bigger than the Ueno location but both are about the same size. Bathhouse entrance process is to remove shoes before you enter. To the right are shoe lockers. Make sure you have a 10 yen coin for the locker. There's another machine across from the front desk. Insert money in machine to get a ticket. The most basic is a locker which is the top left button, but you can choose rooms which the other buttons. Rates vary. Then you give your ticket to the front desk and they will give you a bag with two towels and a robe. The lockers are on the second floor while the main play areas and wet area are on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Then the guest rooms are on the 6th, 7th and 8th. The facilities are clean and nice. Though the open play areas sheets and pillows can be a little worn (I think they only change these once a day). But again it's a bathhouse, not the Ritz-Carlton, and when it comes to bathhouse this is quite nice. Has a nice variety of men from skinny thinks to sumo guys.“

  13. Yes it's great

    “Great facilities, mattress rooms, dry sauna, mist room (not hot tho) showers private and with glory holes, lots of sleeping areas, bunk beds. Hot baths, cold bath. This really is a gay play spa. Just add people and that is the luck of the draw. Keep writing good reviews and it will be busier for all of us to have fun, only negative is some smoking areas.“
