  1. Ugly staffs and dirty shower rooms...

    “I had a very unpleasant experience at this shop. Not only is the shower room an absolute filth, the towels and bed sheets had an awful odour. There were stains left over by previous guests.. they refused to show faces of their masseurs, but would ask you to first come to the store anyway and assign you to a random masseur. My masseur looks nothing like the pictures on the website - he was a chubby guy.

    He actually revealed to me they advertise their staff from pictures they found on Google. The staffs were Filipinos and Japanese who pose as Koreans.
    I have been to many massage shops and this has to be the worst I've been to.
    I do not recommend it.“

  2. Worst massage experience ever

    “I'm afraid I don't have anything good to say about this place. I've been to gay massage parlours in China, Thailand, Malaysia and Japan, and my experience here was without doubt the worst I've ever had.

    I was asked to pay upfront, without seeing the facilities or the masseur, which should've been a warning sign. The facilities were disgusting and not something I'd expect to find anywhere, let alone in Tokyo. The shower room was mouldy and smelly. I'm glad I didn't choose a scrub, because the scrub appears to take place in the shower room.

    Was taken to the massage room where I met the masseur. Unfortunately he was quite unattractive and wasn't in as good shape as good as the photo on the website, but I naively thought perhaps his skills would compensate, especially as his description specifically said he's good at massage.

    Once again, I found myself let down. Very poor massage, he didn't really know what he was doing and his fingers had no strength. He kept going out of the room every few minutes - no idea for what. After the regular massage, we reached what was supposed to be the sexy part, but it was so unsexy (his body, his attitude, his skills, his inane chatter) I was actually turned off.

    At this point I asked if I could change masseurs (I couldn't). So instead I decided to leave. First time I've left a massage place without finishing the massage. Asked to speak to the manager, but at first the masseur wouldn't let me - he insisted he was the manager, which was a complete lie.

    Eventually the manager came out. The manager was the only fairly okay thing about my experience - cute and professional, but he wasn't able to help me. I asked for a 50% refund, which was refused. Instead he said next time I come he'd give me an extra 30 mins for free or a complimentary service. However, after my experience here there's no way I'd go back. Going to Danshi-Gakuen is only marginally more experience and the service/facilities are infinitely superior.“

  3. Bad publicity

    “The pictures are no way near as what they advertise; at least for my masseur Ken. To his defense, he has a good technique.“

  4. One of my favourite in Tokyo

    “I have been to almost all the massage services in Tokyo and this is one of my favorites, which one shall not miss. They have both Japanese and Korean staffs.“

  5. No that great

    “Ok, I was hoping for a great experience since this was my first try at a massage in Japan. So here’s what happened. I Booked Naoto from their site. I arrived at my appointed time and was met kindly at the door and quickly taken into a small room with a curtain.

    On the wall was posted the same pricing structure as on the web site. When I booked online I chose the Basic 1.1, 70 min for 10000 Yen.

    The masseur came in and tried to explain to me in Japanese that the program I selected was 11000 not 10000 as indicated on the web site.

    After a bit of back and forth I agreed to 11000 and had to pay up front only because the masseur that I was speaking to and booked was extremely hot! After a few minutes I was met by another masseur, not the one I booked and he started to lead me to the shower. After more back and forth I finally got my booked masseur back. By this time I was ½ hour past the original start time. After shower and getting on the table the masseur would just leave the room for 5 minutes at a time and then return?? The massage was very minimal. Other than that the guy was hot but it seemed he was out of the room more than he was in. “

  6. Wonderful massage

    “This is my third time at Karada so need I write more? As my two previous trips, the massage was excellent. The service is at its best. I encountered a small earthquake but the masseur calmly proceded. The wash was great!!! Looking forward to my fourth trip there next month“

  7. Best Massage Ever

    “I'm so glad I didn't depend on the reviews here and I went to check out Karada myself. It was one of the best massages I've ever had, and I've had many.

    I called to make an appointment and said I didn't really care which guy I got, but gave a few choices so he knew my type. I just wanted a good massage. I booked 90 minutes with a scrub.

    When I got to Shin-Okubo station, a guy met me. I thought he'd be cute, because usually the front desk people are, but he was not, so I got a bit worried. He took me to the shower and had me shower and then sit in the bath to wait for my guy.

    Then the curtain opened and a cute 20-something guy was there in black briefs. He had a mustache and looked a little different from the typical Japanese guy, but he was cute, and had a nice body.

    First he scrubbed me down, then he rinsed me, then he washed me with body wash, then he rinsed me again.

    First I got a good foot massage, then a pressure point massage and finally an oil massage.

    As I lay back down I had a thought that he was Korean because I know Shin-Okubo is where many Korean restaurants are. I was thinking he was 3rd or 4th generation from the Koreans brought over as slaves during WWII. When he asked me where I was from, I told him, and then asked, "you?" thinking he'd say "Japan", but to my surprise he told me he was from Korea and was here studying Japanese.

    He got me some tea and sat with me as I drank it. We chatted a little about our countries in a mix of English and Japanese. He was very sweet and I felt fully satisfied.

    I'm wondering if the guys who wrote bad reviews were expecting something else. I got a great massage, super service, and felt fully satisfied. I will be going back before I leave Tokyo.“

  8. My favorite

    “The masseur I requested was sexy, very friendly and good at massage. I had 90-minute session, and I would definitely go back to this place when I go on a business trip to Tokyo.“

  10. Stay away

    “What a terrible place. First of all, the bath was super dirty, I was afraid to step on a floor; lots of mold on the walls. My masseur was unfriendly and didn't interact with me at all. I requested 120 minutes service. The whole thing lasted not even an hour, including undressing! As I am writing this review I regret that I didn't ask for my money back; just didn't know what are the standards in places like that, I rather stay out of trouble. Waste of money, instead of feeling relaxed I am pissed.“

  11. horrible experience

    “The experience is really terrible as the massage staff are very unprofessional, lazy, no interaction and did not use any effort in massage. The happy ending is not happy at all, very very uninterested and distant. That means you cannot get either a great massage or happy experience here. The money you spent on ANY OTHER stuff will be much more worthy. It is very disappointing that even after finishing the session, the staff immediately played his phone and totally ignored the customer. Please think deeply if you want to go there, or it really depend on your luck if you could get a great massage staff. The reason I give 1 star for value and service is simply because I cannot choose 0 or negative number.“

  12. Fun Experience

    “Great experience. (Very) Hot Japanese masseur, in (very) tight underwear. Not your "lounge about in a robe while breathing in scented air" massage. The other kind.“
