Saitama might well have a reputation as a boring suburb of Tokyo but some places aren't as dull as they sound. Japan might also be a nation with 25% older population but the seniors can't be accused of being anything but active. One man was recently arrested for being a little too vigorous, in fact. 64-year-old Yoshio Shimazaki of Utsunomiya in Tochigi had some urges and knew where to do go to sort it out. He went to Saitama. In November 2011 at a love hotel in Kawaguchi City he gave a female high school student ¥20,000 and then had her perform bondage play with him. At the time the ...

Naoki Nakatani. An ordinary 30-year-old guy from Ibogawacho in Hyogo prefecture. Or is he? Our friend Naoki here has been been selling some clothes via online auctions. Nothing unusual in that. Except that he has been selling raincoats. A lot of them. And they have the names of girls' high schools written on them, as one person who bought a raincoat from Nakatani found out. Correctly assuming it was stolen, the customer contacted police, who then began to investigate. Over the last six years, he had apparently visited local supermarket bicycle parking areas dozens of times and ...

Chikan. AKA groping. It's a real Japanese tradition. But that doesn't mean you have to be Japanese to do it. When in Rome, as they say. Now a foreigner has been caught copping a feel on a young Japanese woman on a JR train. Not only was this foreigner a British "gentleman" but he was also... a preacher! Apparently this man of the cloth is 48 but was doing most unholy things to the legs and breasts of the 22-year-old female office worker sitting next to him one day on a train in Shiga on September 14th. This wasn't just a little fondle. This was a 25-minute afternoon groping ...

Finally, a car we can have sex with. This is the vehicle we have been waiting for and as itasha go, this one might not be the most elaborate but it is rather ingenious -- which merits how it is exploding on the Japanese internet at the moment. The owner took Madoka from Puella Magi Madoka Magica -- a favorite of itasha -- and added her to the back of his (it has to be a he!) car -- in 3D. In other words, he created a sex doll-car hybrid. Well, that's far more interesting that any Prius we've ever seen. The results were spotted on Twitter and roundly applauded for their ...

Candidates for the Miss Asia competition were recently unveiled in Shenzhen City in Guangdong Province. The annual beauty pageant is organized by Asia Television Limited from Hong Kong. China's netizens, however, have been less than impressed by the quality of the ladies. Saying that, we think these four girls are wonderful, especially number 3! The point of contention hasn't only been the girls' looks but also their clothes. Look at the swimsuits they have been made to wear! Now this is more like it... Still, it could be worse. In Korea ...

We've been seeing a lot of Japanese onahole toys that play on the word kupa or kupaa recently. What does it mean? Well, in our efforts to explain Japanese erotic esoterica to our readers, we decided to provide a basic definition. Kupa can be a fairly innocent onomatopoeia for cooking. But its meaning in the Japanese Erotic Dictionary is far more interesting: the sound of a woman's pussy being opened! In other words, kupa is that noise you hear when you spread the legs of a shojo (virginal girl) and then peel open her vaginal lips. The Japanese language is highly ...

It has just been announced that Tokyo will host the Summer Olympic Games in 2020. Will the city try to expunge all its unsavory elements ahead of the event? The last time the city hosted the Games there was a similar campaign to "clean up" the streets, and when the Winter Games were held in Nagano they forced Pachinko parlors to close. So can we look forward to the municipal government going full-out to hide unsightly shacks that serve as residences for the homeless or the slum-like drinking dens like Piss Alley in Shinjuku? Perhaps. But we are most worried about what it may try to ...

They say lightning doesn't strike twice but such rules don't apply to Japanese pornography, which has always proved tempting to aging or waning Gravure idols and actresses. And former AKB48 girls who find themselves a defacto porn star during their time in the group -- and upon "graduation" discover it's a mere side step to enter the real thing. Porn maker Muteki has managed to persuade former AKB48 Team K member Risa Naruse to become "Haruna Aisaka" for her debut, National Idol. The 100-minute porn feature film will be released in Japan on October 1st. Risa Naruse was born in ...

Hardly the biggest surprise of the week but a worthy topic of news, Tokyo Reporter has highlighted an interesting report of the arrest of a Nigerian club owner arrested by police for drugging and stealing from his customers. Officers took Emanuel John, the 44-year-old manager of Little Cat, which is located in the in the red-light district of Kabukicho, and three hostesses into custody on theft charges. On April 20, a hostess allegedly spiked a vodka drink served to a 43-year-old male customer with a sleeping powder. His cash card was then stolen from his wallet and taken to a nearby ...

You may wonder why there is so much chikan (groping) in Japan, especially on the trains... Well, one answer could lie in the fact that even respected and veteran male TV presenters feel that it is okay to grope their female co-host's ass live on television! Yes, that's what Mino Monta did. See the video below. You can just make out his much younger co-host trying to keep his hands off her. Bizarrely it appears to be during a segment about a community affected by the 2011 Tohoku disaster, which wouldn't normally be the kind of story that would inspire men to start groping the ...

AKB48's Asuka Kuramochi has grown up. She will release her first solo photo book on September 11th called "Mimi-tabu", which means "earlobe". We're not sure if this has some sort of coded meaning or whether the photos will showcase Asuka's lovely ears. Saying that, Asuka is known as an "ear sommelier" and apparently has a liking for liking other girls' ears... The release will coincide with her 24th birthday, though we think the present is more for us than her! The shoot was done in Asuka's local town, Yokohama, and handled by photographer Tatsuo Watanabe. While ...

Four men have been arrested in Tokyo for theft by Kanagawa police after they blackmailed a man they met through a smartphone deai-kei app. Deai-kei refers to the portals online and off where men go to meet girls for sex. It is somewhere between adultery and prostitution, but the variables are huge. You might be talking to a few men posing as teenagers or you might be arranging to meet a genuine girl who wants some cash for a new handbag. The four men were in their teens and twenties. They apparently scouted a thirty-year-old man from Fujisawa City via the app and invited him to the ...

That's a question I devote considerable time each day to thinking about. Well, luckily we have some hard data to back our speculations up. Triumph, the underwear brand, has released some statistics on its bra sales and so we have some nice data on which cups sell most -- and thus, can presumably infer on the proportion of breast sizes across the country. Note, though that the numbers are for 2011, though we doubt that Japanese breasts have evolved so much in two years. So, here we go. A Cup: 8% B Cup: 23.8% C Cup: 26.7% D Cup: 22% E Cup: 12.8% F Cup: 4.8% G Cup: ...

Just imagine you like AKB48. Now imagine you like AKB48 so much you will commit a crime. That's what four teenagers did. They mugged a man in order to have cash to buy special clothes to "look good" for a meet-and-greet hand-shaking event with the idol group. Aged between 15 and 17, the kids came up to a 27-year-old grad student as he was leaving a convenience store earlier in August in Kamiya, central Tokyo. Confronting him in their best macho voices, they managed to get away with his phone, his money and even the can of beer he had just purchased. The victim apparently ...

We love documenting the intriguing fetishes that exist out there -- and be sure, we don't do out of any sense of judging! Quite the opposite, we are kind of celebrating difference. Anyway, another example has just come to light. A man was arrested in Kanagawa prefecture over the weekend for stealing. Nothing new in that, except that he stole bicycle seats. A lot of them. 200 of them. Police first came to see Joji Kondo to investigate the theft of three seats from an apartment block at around 4:45 AM on August 22nd. In Kondo's lair of pungent desire, they found 200 bicycle ...

Japanese cops have guns and in theory can shoot someone if necessary. Well, some shoot other things. Kozo Shirakawa, a 46-year-old sergeant in Kagawa, was nothing if not ingenious. He attached a special spy camera to his shoe so he could film up women's skirts. The camera was on the inside and could shoot from a small hole in the leather. One August Sunday afternoon he took his invention to a department store in Takamatsu, where he was trying it out by filming up the skirt of a 23-year-old woman. Surely this guy should be given bonus points for innovation and brazenness. The ...

We spend a lot of time bashing AKB48 on this blog but we have to finally admit the truth. We think Haruna Kojima is hot. Actually, keen-eyed readers will likely have already deduced this from certain drooling articles in the past. We previously blogged with glee about Haruna's new work modeling for Peach John, Japan's lingerie brand that is similar to Victoria's Secret. She's back in a new series of ads which feature Haruna sleeping... perfect for imagining what it's like to be snuggled up close to her. We're not sure about the red hair but we do like it when she cups her bust ...

Not a question I often ask myself... but apparently they have! So says Dr. Akiko Tanaka, who has apparently photographed over 8,000 vaginas. Here's where we get a bit technical. Tanaka says that the labia majora in women today used to be thicker and covered the labia minora more. But now the labia stand out more than they did in the past. Why? Apparently it's all due to dieting. The skin on the labia has got slimmer due to girls always going on diets. All this biological change has led some girls naturally to become conscious of their conspicuous pussies, having being told by ...

It was just after three on the afternoon of August 16th, a scorching hot day in Hirano, east Osaka. Hirano is notorious for bag-snatching and other crime, so when police got a call from a twenty-six-year-old girl that her purse had been grabbed while cycling home, no doubt they weren't surprised. Until she gave her description of the criminal. "This is a first," said the police. According to the girl, the man was aged between 30 and 35, with a crew cut and muscular build. But he had chosen to steal her handbag with its 9,000 yen inside wearing the most unusual of crime world ...

The annual AKB48 General Election Book (AKB48総選挙!水着サプライズ2013) has this year been proving a hit, with sales of 60,000 copies a week since it was released on August 5th. Though the 2012 wasn't as successful, both the 2010 and 2011 editions were likewise bestsellers. It was first released in 2009. This year ("Swimsuit Surprise") features all 64 members of the world's largest bikini model music group (AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, and HKT48) who ranked in the election in barely-there swimsuits. The book has been released ahead of the new single that comes out on ...

Tokyo Reporter had an intriguing (if worrying) article recently from the Japanese media about a maid cafe in Roppongi being raided for employing underage girls. Officers took Ryuji Shimizu, 41, the manager of Archangels Tokyo, into custody for allegedly employing a 16-year-old girl as a waitress after 10 p.m. — a violation of the Law Regulating Adult Entertainment Businesses. The girl, who was attired in a light kimono known as a yukata, received an hourly wage of 1,050 yen per hour. This reminds us of the recent girls' bar scandal in Osaka and it seems police are now cracking ...

It is customary to have a celebrity make the first pitch at baseball games in Japan. Last Saturday sexy thirtysomething model Mitsu Dan made the pitch for a game in Akita and did so in her typically alluring style. We're not sure how this would have gone down with the mothers in the stadium or watching on TV, but the dads seemed to love it at any rate. After coming out in the team uniform, Dan quickly defies the usual way of doing things by stripping down to a very revealing swimsuit to throw her pitch, and then proceeds to frolic with the team mascot. Apparently the ...

Shijonawate City in Osaka prefecture has punished two twenty-year-old firefighters with a six-month suspension. What did they do wrong? They appeared in a porn film. Firefighters in Japan have a reputation for playing the field, earning good money and spending it on girls. These two clearly wanted to combine the two by getting some extra cash for making an appearance in an adult flick. Apparently they were approached at Suma beach near Kobe in August last year by a scout. "You've got good bodies. Would you let us film you screwing some girls?" They then went to a nearby ...

Recently the netizens of Japan got a chance to have an online Q&A with someone who used to work as a cleaner at a love hotel. Here's a summary of what they were asked and how they responded. The person claimed to be in charge of making up the beds after guests were finished with their stay. Q: There's no cameras, right? No, only in the corridors and parking lot. Q: Did you ever bump into guests? Sometimes. But usually we were hiding away somewhere until the guests left. Q: Can you hear the groans? If the inner was left open we could hear. We could hear in front of the ...
