Let this be a warning to everyone: Don’t snap pictures of hot Japanese girls you don’t know. Anywhere.
Sure, we know we shouldn’t do this in the office when a cutie goes by. And we also know there are plenty of cases of people being arrested for taking photos under girls’ skirts.
But just an innocent snap of a pretty girl on the train. Surely this wouldn’t be a police matter, right?
On the evening of August 28th, a 40-year-old Kawasaki City employee was riding the Denentoshin Line, a major suburban train line between Tokyo and Yokohama. He glanced at a cute 21-year-old female college student sitting next to him. He decided to take a photo.
There was nothing salacious about it. No panties. No zooming up her skirt.
But the municipal environmental department worker found himself in Kanagawa police custody on suspicious of breaching prefectural anti-nuisance ordinances, facing a hefty sentence.
Police said that he had used a USB stick-shaped camera to snap a shot of the girl from head to toe.
There have been similar cases before. Someone who snapped a girl from behind while she was passing by in 2008 was found guilty. As was a man who snapped a photo of a sleeping girl on a train in Chiba in 2011. In Kanagawa, the anti-nuisance ordinance carries a potential penalty of a year in prison and a ¥1 million ($10,000) fine!
A lawyers has actually said that according to the letter of the law, all you need to do is simply point your phone or camera in a girl’s direction and you are in danger of arrest.
So… next time you are in Shibuya and see that hot girl standing in front of you at Scramble Crossing — think twice before reaching for your iPhone’s camera!
There has been some mild panic in the local media after reports of school kids catching Dengue fever from mosquitos in Yoyogi Park in central Tokyo on August 21st.
The cases have been increasing since then, with 22 confirmed victims so far. On August 27th the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare announced they were the first recorded domestic cases of Dengue fever in Japan in around 70 years.
A rather unlikely scenario has manifested itself, though, in that two tarento have also contracted the illness, it was announced today.
Eri Aoki (25) and Saya (20) were doing a TV shoot in Yoyogi Park on August 21st and they tried to catch some insects in the name of making quality television. During the course of their frolics they were bitten by mosquitos carrying Dengue and have since come down with fever, although their conditions are supposed to be fine.
Saya is much beloved as a young Gravure model with lovely curves and girl-next-door looks.
Parts of Yoyogi Park have been closed to the public since August 28th while the authorities try to deal with the outbreak with large doses of pesticide.
There you have it. Proof at last that porn is good for the world.
As reported a few days ago, this weekend saw the 24-Hour TV: Eroticism Saves the Earth event in Kabukicho, part of which was a breast squeeze-a-thon, where nine hot Japanese porn stars allowed their chests to be groped by random men… all for a good cause, honest!
Well, these gals helped raised ¥5 million (around $5,000) for a charitable foundation fighting AIDS in Japan!
The girls had 6,000 pairs of hands on their assets, groping for a grand total of over 15 hours spread over Saturday and Sunday.
Apparently some of the men did so quite sheepishly. Media reports even said one guy did a Buddhist prayer before and after touching each girl’s chest (you were allowed to touch each of the girls once) if you donated ¥1,000 or over, and got yours hands disinfected. Oh, and there were some ladies among the visitors too, causing the porn stars to squeal, “Wow, I’m happy. I want her to touch my breasts!”
“I never thought my boobs could contribute to society,” pondered one of the porn actresses philosophically. Well, you’re wrong. They can do, and more.
AIDS/HIV is a growing problem in Japan, where safe sex is rarely practiced among the young. While the overall numbers are a fraction of the worldwide total, there are said to be 1,500 new patients every year.
Breaking news just in. Japanese teenaged girls are cute.
Take this 17-year-old idol, Mizuki Kimoto. Born in 1996, this year she has started to appear in magazines like Young Jump in various states of undress.
Is this wrong? Should we be even looking at these young girls dressed like this?
Well, the powers that be in the world of Japanese idols and Gravure seem to disagree — as do the girls’ legal guardians — since they have them disrobe for these kinds of photo shoots.
Here’s another 17-year-old hottie.
The good news is that Mizuki Kimoto is going to be 18 in September… and so it then becomes less creepy to look at her pictures.
Korean-born model Youn-a (28) is marrying again this autumn, just over a year after divorcing a Korean businessman.
Her new partner and future husband is a Kotaro Shiba (40), head of office48, an agency connected to the company behind AKB48, AKS.
So far, not so Tokyo Kinky, you might think, though Youn-a is a bit of a hottie. Perhaps she will be appearing in the idol group in the future? That would be a real reason to listen to their “music” at last…
However, Kotaro Shiba is rumored to be connected to the Japanese mafia, the Yakuza, as we previously reported.
Entertainment people are worried that Youn-a’s choice of new husband will damage her clean reputation (she’s the kind of model who appears in very middle-class fashion magazines), since Shiba’s Yakuza connections have been heavily publicized in the tabloids.
Shiba has a checkered past, with a failed beauty salon on his resume before he got involved with black market financial services that are borderline extortion. He is also said to have his band in underground casinos and pachinko. And it was through casino gambling that he apparently met the other important businessmen in AKB, like Yasushi Akimoto. The money that Shiba subsequently invested in the AKB ventures is rumored to be funds gained from illegal enterprises.
While office48 responded angrily to these tabloid reports, it did not sue or take action against the magazine that originally published them.
Does Youn-a know about her partner’s history?!
As everyone knows, Japan is the world of technology.
Sometimes that engineering gets applies to home electronics, sometimes to automobiles, sometimes to nuclear reactors. And sometimes to sex toys.
And the result is you get the sex machine.
The pioneer was the Hitachi Magic Wand back in the 1970′s, one of many electronic massagers that swiftly found extra unofficial uses. There have been a whole line of “wands” since, not least the Fairy.
But it’s a few years ago when the genre really evolved.
The Rends A10 Cyclone has long been the most sophisticated and satisfactory sex machine on the market here, loved for its power, sensitive motion, and reliability.
But no sex toy is perfect. The A10 Cyclone requires the R1 Base Unit to work. Not such a bad thing, since the R1 can also be used for a whole range of other vibrator attachments for fun couple play, plus there is a handy combo set you can get of both the A10 and R1 together like they deserve.
But Rends went back to the drawing board and decided to come with a whole new sex machine, one that worked as well as the original A10 but looked even better — and was also standalone.
Enter the Vorze A10 Cyclone SA.
We first spotted this beauty at Japan’s new adult expo, Pink Tokyo, much earlier in the year. It was released in May but was soon withdrawn after it wasn’t quite working up to the high standards that Rends imposes. They did some more tests and improvements, and now it’s back. However, it’s only being sold via one online adult retailer in Japan and overseas, the only place you can get it is KanojoToys.
All this shows what a special release this is.
It’s cordless and requires only itself (the “SA” refers to “standalone”). It can work with videos on your Windows PC via a DVD-ROM or with another device via Bluetooth, and uses customized hole attachments (the set contains one to get your started). Just charge it up for two hours and then you are away. It is very quiet but hasn’t lost any of the oomph of the A10.
The torque has also been enhanced. The Vorze A10 works smoother even at low speeds and also has better results for larger men. The original A10 Cyclone tended to get a little “clogged” when buzzing members with a bit of girth.
In the future Rends is promising more hole heads as well as Android and iOS compatibility.
Keep an eye on KanojoToys for more.
Ever wanted to fondle a Japanese porn star’s breasts? Then get ready for boob aid!
Following last year’s successful event, 24-Hour TV: Eroticism Saves the Earth is back, including the popular squeeze-a-thon event where members of the public make charity donations for the chance to touch the breasts of porn actresses.
Rina Serino is one of the nine sexy JAV stars baring their beautiful chests for charity and letting random men grope them for a good cause, organized by SKY PerfecTV!.
All visitors have to show ID to prove their age, donate ¥1,000 to charity and sanitize their hands before they get their hands on the girls’ breasts. You are allowed to fondle each star’s breasts once.
Technically, as the squeeze-a-thon is televised, you are legally an “extra” in the TV show and so have to sign a release.
The event, which has happened every year for over a decade now, is taking place on August 30th and 31st at a venue in Kabukicho, Shinjuku. There are numerous other events during the 24-hour charity drive.
The money raised goes to the Japan Foundation for AIDS Prevention.
Our lady this week is strictly speaking not a Gravure idol, though she has certainly done some very revealing photo shoots in her time.
Chinatsu Wakatsuki is a fashion model and tarento (generic TV celebrity).
In early 2012 she announced she was pregnant and was getting married — big surprise, the usual celebrity shotgun wedding style — and now she is presenting herself as a cool young mama in her thirties with good fashion tastes.
Born in 1984, she was scouted in Shibuya while still a teenager. Her slinky charms have been on our screens ever since.
There’s been a lot of political tension over the last two years between Korea and Japan. Territorial disputes. Yasukuni Shrine. Comfort women.
But when all’s said and done, there’s one great unifier: sex.
Korea does not have a very vibrant porn industry and Korean men look to JAV to fill their needs.
“Yadong” means a porn video you watch online or on your computer. Whatever they think about certain rocks in the sea between Japan and the peninsula, almost all men in Korea love Japanese anime and Japanese porn.
Due to local restrictions you don’t have the major porn makers in Korea like you get in Japan and so most porn is Japanese. “Yadong” by default means Japanese pornography.
What Koreans like about JAV is how there is such a variety of narratives and situations, and how it ventures frequently into the abnormal.
And of course, they love the JAV actresses too… One website lists the most popular JAV stars of 2013, taken from YGOSU, a Korean forum site.
The most popular were Shion Utsunomiya, Minami Kojima, Akiho Yoshizawa, Minami Hatsukawa and Ai Uehara.
We wonder if it is a mere coincidence that there are two girls with the names “Minami” in the top ranking? “Minami” means “south”, obviously an important word for Korea!
Keita Motono, a 25-year-old teacher at a junior high school in Yokohama City, has been arrested for indecent assault. The charges are that Motono touched the body of a female high school student on her way home at 10:30 at night on August 13th.
The 17-year-old third grader was walking home in Yokohama when Motono apparently forced himself on her upper body.
The unnamed girl was left physically unhurt by the attack and Motono has admitted his guilt.
Motono approached the girl from behind. “If you make a noise I’ll kill you,” he threatened. “Give me your panties. Let me touch you.”
While the media is reporting that Motono was able to grope the student’s modest chest, it is unknown if Motono got away with the prized panties. As know, such used panties are the Holy Grail for a certain type of man here.
The girl remembered his face and this led to Motono’s downfall.
There have been 14 such incidents in Yokohama in the same manner since late March. Motono became a teacher in Yokohama in April this year. Is this just a coincidence? No doubt the boys in blue are putting their moves on Motono to get him to confess to being a serial street panty thief.
Perhaps appropriately enough, he teaches physical education. His employers have promised to “deal with it rigidly”, though we can expect that he only gets suspended. In these cases, sometimes the response by the education authorities is very lenient.
