Soaplands are the best of the best when it comes to prostitution in Japan. That’s no small feat. The land of the rising sun is known for being a kinky place. One look at Japanese porn or even just Japanese sex toys will tell you that. That’s if you even need telling. Japan is already world famous as a center of sex of all sorts.

Foreigner friendly soaplands aren’t nearly as hard to find as they used to be. There was a time when you would get rejected from nearly every soapland if you weren’t Japanese. A lot of shops might still turn you away. But nowadays quite a few will let you in as long as you look alright. And as I will explain, there is even one soapland set up completely and totally for foreign guys!

A brief history of the Japanese soapland

The Japanese soapland (ソープランド) has a pretty interesting history. Now widely known as “sopurando” in Japan, these places originated as basic bath houses after the end of World War II. Back then a guy would go in and get his body washed by a woman.

Obviously more than just bathing was bound to happen when a naked man and a naked woman shared a private room. Especially when the man was paying the woman for her services. Things quickly evolved to the point that guys started expecting full service for a set fee at the soaplands. The businesses grew and added more facilities, women and male management that doubled as security.

Soaplands were originally called Turkish baths or “toruko-buro” in Japan. Some in Turkey took offense to this. According to the book Japan’s Sex Trade by Peter Constantine, a Turkish professor successfully launched a campaign to have the name changed. A public constant was help to rename the facilities. The winning entry combined the English terms “soap” and “land” and came up with “soapland”. Only in Japan!

Gaijin friendly soaplands in Japan

Gaijin is the not-so-friendly Japanese term for foreigner. There are other words like gaikokojin and such that are supposed to be more polite. But Japan is not really a politically correct society, so gaijin it is. That’s what you hear the most when Japanese people talk about foreigners anyway.

The Yoshiwara neighborhood of Tokyo is the most famous soapland area in all of Japan. Apparently prostitution goes way back there. Centuries ago there were women selling pussy in Yoshiwara. And the same goes on today. The district is a little far from the train station. But it is in walking distance. And if you go to a soapland there, they usually drive you back to the train station after you are finished.

Usually there is at least one or two women in each soapland who will take a foreigner. Ultimately it is up to them. The managers also have something to do with it. But they’ll let you know right at the door whether or not you are okay to enter as a foreigner. If you are, they’ll show you the chicks available to you inside.

The best Yoshiwara soaplands known to accept foreigners are:

  1. Y-shirt to Watashi
  2. Oiran Monogatari
  3. Moulin Rouge
  4. Giardino
  5. Versailles
  6. Atelier Naniwa

This list of foreigner friendly Yoshiwara soaplands may seem short. But it is also sweet. The service given in these places is practically unmatched. I’ve been around the world and I can’t really compare anything to a Japanese soapland. The only two things that come close are the best nuru massage parlors in Bangkok and the top sex saunas in Macau. Everything pales in comparison in my view.

There are soaplands in other parts of the country too. But these are the most famous. Plus soaplands in a lot of other places like Ikebukuro are really old school. They absolutely don’t want anything to do with non-Japanese guys. The many soaplands of Fukuoka famously refuse to admit any gaijin customers too. Tokyo remains the best city for soaplands. It is also the best place for foreigner friendly soaplands, especially since they are all located there. There is only one notable exception that I will now explain.

The best Tokyo soapland for foreigners

The last soapland to mention is arguably best of all. Probably because they sensed a market need, some people actually opened a soapland specifically for foreigners. That is GFE Soapland in Kawasaki. If you aren’t familiar with Japan’s layout, you might know the name Kawasaki from the vehicle company. Well the city of Kawasaki is just right outside of Tokyo. It’s not exactly Tokyo, but it’s close enough. If you’re in Tokyo you can get there in a few minutes by train or taxi. And GFE Sopaland is very easy to find once you do.

GFE Soapland is so set up for foreigners that the guys inside are native English speakers. They explain everything when you walk in. Then they take you back to a row of private booths. You wait there until they bring chicks by for you to check out. You select your chick and you’re off to the races.

The prices at GFE Soapland start at 20000 Yen for a 30 minute quickie. That’s just about $135 in American money. But if you want real soapland service, you probably have to do at least 60 minutes. That costs 30,000 Yen or just over $200 in US dollars.

I won’t go too far into detail when talking about this place. It is a soapland like any other. The main difference is that they not only accept foreigners, but actively encourage them to come on in. That’s rare for a soapland in Japan.

All of the places on this list are known to accept foreigners. But GFE Soapland is the only one totally set up for non-Japanese guys. Some of the chicks who work there might not speak anything but Japanese. But the other staff, signs and even the website is all in English.
