  1. Visited several times - disappointing

    “I came on 3 evenings (weekend and weekday) and was disappointed each time. The crowd definitely skewed older and less in shape than expected, and at least a third of the people there were foreigners. It did not ever get particularly crowded.

    I was not asked for my passport or any form of ID. There were no slippers or vending machine. You insert a 10-yen coin into a shoe locker, then give the shoe locker key and the 2500 yen fee to the front desk (2900 after 9pm), where they give you a locker key.“

  2. Layover in Tokyo

    “I came to this place on a weekday around 12pm but only stayed for about 2.5 hours because I was only in Tokyo for an 11 hour layover. I did manage to make it worth it. When you enter the building, make sure you take off your shoes and place them into one of the lockers. Take that locker key and bring it to the front desk where you pay for entrance (either 6 hours or 12). I chose 6 hours which was about 2200 yen. Maybe because of the language barrier, I wasn't sure why I was given only the towels and not a robe, as I saw some guests wear.

    The locker room is on the same floor as the front desk, and the bathing area is upstairs. The facilities were clean, and the whirlpool felt amazing. There were a decent amount of guys here at this time of day. Almost right after I got into the whirlpool a Japanese local followed me in and sat nearby and slowly moved closer towards me to initiate fun. I think the locals are a bit more shy in the brighter areas in the building. In darker areas like the dry sauna or the bedroom upstairs, they're more keen to make the move. Upstairs in the bunk bed rooms, you'll see some action but don't expect people to be loud or wild. They do it very quietly to respect the others as they are actually sleeping in the room. It was still fun to watch, though. There was also a video room playing gay porn and while some of the guys in here were asleep, you can catch others having fun as well. Overall in the short time I had here, I had fun with 2 guys and I wish I could have stayed longer. People will watch you while you play - if you're into that, this place is perfect.“

  3. Loved it

    “I visited this place on Friday & Saturday night and there were a very good number of attendees. The sauna is big and has lots of facilities. The guys were mostly locals and a few were foreigners including me. You get to meet lots of people here of all age group. There were a few guys who just walk around in the towels and do nothing. Except those guys, others are quite friendly. I shall visit again whenever I visit Tokyo again.“

  4. Bad Luck

    “I went there on November 21st around 8pm. The facilities are great, very spacious. Surprisingly, there were only 10 guys and most of them were in their 40-50’s, maybe.

    And it’s not a common sauna like the one I visited in Hong Kong or Bangkok. No dark maze.
    I met one westerner who was always following and another young visitor - a bit creepy.

    Maybe I just had a bad day :( So decided to go to HAAARD cruise club, and it was better and cheaper.“

  5. 1st timer

    “It was the 1st time I ever visited a gay sauna, and I’m glad my experience happened here. Went there on a Thursday and it wasn’t that busy. However, I was expecting way less people considering that it was a weekday. There were mostly middle-aged Japanese men, a few young foreigners and young Japanese guys. But the Japanese guys, for the most part, were much more inclusive and interested in having fun. Action certainly wasn’t missing that night - I still get turned on just thinking about it! The guy at the entrance wasn’t super colloquial, but the place was overall clean and well-maintained. So I guess it was worth the expensive entrance fee. It was so worth it that I wanted to share my experience here. Next time I want more fresh meat there. ;)“

  7. Really good

    “I was visiting the place daily during my stay in Tokyo. Nothing more relaxing than taking a soak in a hot pool after a long day of walking around. Loads of guys from all over the world, and all friendly. Whether you are looking for some action or just to relax. Top spot“

    • Weekday visit

      “Which hour should I go on a normal weekday to enjoy a reasonable crowd?“

      • First time

        “Anyone knows if specs (glasses) are allowed in the sauna? Do people wear them inside?

        Also if you just want to watch and not do anything can you do that? Which area would be best to just "watch"?“

    “Visited there last week (17th & 18th). It's really a nice place. Lot of fun with guys from all over the world, and also enjoyed a very passionated hug with a nice Japanese until the last minute. I can't stop thinking about the good time. Must visit there again, very soon!“

  11. Stay for a night

    “Cost more than 2000 won and a locker fee for your shoes.. bath and saunas on the 3rd floor where some quick action is happening.. had 3x in the mist sauna with locals and its amazing for just staying less than an hour.

    4th floor was the action scene you can witness for.. nobody care who watched, but some locals are still picky.. Even you see them get laid off in the dark.. most people are older than me.. they like foreigners here so anybody can pay a visit if they want to have fun for 12 hrs lol. Will definitely go back when i am in Tokyo.. Hopefully I can cut my hair shorter then..“
