A 29-year-old public servant in Tokyo's Adachi ward was arrested on February 17th for attempting to kidnap a young girl. Kentaro Makino previously went into the grounds of an Edogawa ward condo in July last year. He waited there for kids coming home from school. Soon enough a 10-year-old elementary school student arrived, who he threatened with a knife and told her he'd bring her home again as long as she kept quiet. He then put handcuffs on her and put her into a large boston bag. However, the girl put up a fight and screamed her lungs out, so a frightened Makino dropped his spare ...

Here's a cautionary tale just after Valentine's Day to remind us how wrong things can go. A 48-year-old life insurance employee was arrested on February 13th by police in Shakujii in Nerima in Tokyo. Yokohama resident Keisuke Munakata is accused of sending threatening notes to a girl he met at a wedding party in 2013. Munakata and the 27-year-old girl from Nerima dated last year. But when things went wrong, Munakata sent her a note saying "Keep your eyes out. Something might happen to you." This intimidation apparently continued from from last December to January. The pair met at a ...

While much of the economy is struggling to find any positive effects from PM Abe's fiscal policies, and consumers are dreading April and the impending raising of consumption tax, there is at least one industry that seems unaffected by the financial doldrums. Love hotels are doing big business. As we know, sex always sells. It doesn't matter what the crisis is, people will always pay for sex -- whether that is with their partner, material for their own private fun, or to hire the services of a professional. An AFP article has picked up on the love hotel phenomenon as a sign that ...

It's snowing in Tokyo right now, making for a very chilly Valentine's Day. Unlike the west, February 14th in Japan is the day for the ladies to give chocolate or gifts to the guys, who then reciprocate on March 14th ("White Day"). Either way, it's a day when the love hotels are always fully booked -- especially because this year it falls on a Friday -- so getting your Valentine's Day treat requires some planning if you don't want to be disappointed. Popular dates include a trip to Tokyo Tower, an aquarium (lots of dark corners for snuggling), going to see a movie (not as obvious ...

We like slightly larger girls. Girls with a little bit of curve to them. The recent naked butt of Ayaka Sayama was enough to get our blood racing. A new Japanese idol group called Chubbiness showcases girls who are, not surprisingly, a little larger. The ten ladies will be making their professional debut in March. What do you think? Will these idols be a hit? There has been a bit of a surge in interest in large ladies of late, including popular comediennes and even a fashion magazine devoted to pocchari women. While Chubbiness are a little too, well, chubby for our ...

In 1995 Ganari Takahashi helped set up Soft on Demand and it has grown to become the biggest porn producer and retailer in Japan. SOD is one of the prime reasons that Japan is said to be the largest consumer and creator of pornography in the world. But in 2005, after netting himself $10 million, he turned his back on the industry that he had done so much to create, becoming a... farmer. Yes, Takahashi set up a farm co-operative in 2006, hoping to use some of his know-how about pink celluloid for other purposes (and spend ¥1 billion of his own dosh in the process). This was no pipe ...

A trip to the dentist can often be a nerve-wracking thing, especially if your pearlies need some painful work done. But this pervy dentist in Ichinomiya City in Mie Prefecture did little to allay his patient's fears. Rather, apparently he was just intent on having a good time for himself. The 53-year-old took a charm to the twentysomething woman who came to his hospital to get her teeth fixed. He told a dubious story that "massaging your chest will help the alignment of your jaw" and promptly took her to side-room in his clinic. Whether she was naive or just scared, we don't ...

It's not easy being a Japanese male porn start. They are literally just a handful of bonefide stars (and thousands of anonymous performers) in an industry dominated by the girls. To make ends meet they might perform in up to six films a week! With men so dispensable, it's time to stop screwing around, as they say. On April 1st, the Japan Porn Actors Association (JPAA) will come into existence. But this is no April's Fool Day stunt. Inspired by the problems with HIV and STDs that paralyzed the American porn industry last year, the JPAA has been created by veteran actor Genji ...

We love selfies. Correction: we love to look at cute girls' selfies. In Korea there are plenty of lingerie selfies out there. What about Japanese girls? Well, there Jigadoribu, or "selfie club", which features a stunning array of a Japanese Gravure models posing for selfies. The images are drawn from the models' own Twitter accounts as they take behind-the-scenes snaps (of varying quality) from their latest photo shoots or just showing off their bodies at home, whether in lingerie, cosplay or just ordinary wardrobes. The models co-operate in the scheme by tagging their ...

We all have images we like to look at when we, you know, service ourselves. Purikura are the "photo club" booths popular with young Japanese, who pose and then customize and decorate the images with their friends. This guy seems to have a serious thing for not only female high school students -- who can blame him?! -- but also the pictures of the girls taken in the Purikura booths. This picture was originally posted by the man himself on Twitter before it exploded online and earned the scorn of 2ch. Fortunately he is wearing a (scary) mask but his lair, decorated floor to ...

If you're a AKB48 fan, you are probably a vulnerable individual with money to burn and an appetite for over-priced merchandise. And if you know someone like that or come into contact with them -- be warned. They may just steal your money. As we know, fans of otaku idol groups are willing to put themselves into serious debt in order to purchase thousands of CDs. But this is taking things to almost mafia levels. Kyoto police are now set to prosecute six men, all aged 20, who stole information from other people's credit cards so that they could buy nearly 500 CDs by the group ...

Japanese girls are world experts in make-up. Almost no girl leaves the house without at least a dab of blush or foundation, and women quite advanced in years can still look superb. Skin quality is praised above sexiness. Recently there has been a trend for celebrities posting pictures of themselves as suppin (no make-up) on blogs and so on. Nozomi Sasaki, the popular angelic actress, has found herself caught up in the "trend" when she took part in a promo for a cosmetic product in which she appeared without make-up. Here you can see a before-and-after. She did it to show ...

Another day, another fetish-related crime. We only just recently blogged about the man who stole everything from satchels to curtains from an elementary school, and now comes this news -- first shared on Tokyo Reporter -- of a thief whose interests was exclusively the shoes of hostesses.

The animal. The technician. The flashy guy. It's time to save women from these guys. So say Ravijour, the Japanese maker of some very sexy bras. As part of the lingerie brand's tenth anniversary, Ravijour has created a bra that "automatically unhooks" when the right man is on the scene. It knows "how women truly feel". It cannot be unhooked without true love. Ravijour has even recruited a "human sexuality specialist", a physician and the design lab Rhizomatics to create this concept bra. They say that a built-in sensor reads the wearer's heart beat. This ...

We often talk about chikan on Tokyo Kinky. There is a strange subculture in Japan where certain men think it's okay to grope women on trains. In fact, there are even certain "clubs" that organize these kinds of mass groping sessions on public transport. But if you get found out it can bring your fantasies crashing down. That's what happened to one 39-year-old man on the Odakyu Odawara line when it was passing through Kawasaki, just outside Tokyo on Thursday night. Around 9 pm a woman on the train caught his hands wandering and exposed him. The humiliated man, whether to try to ...

An otaku has made a shocking confession that he bought 3,000 CDs due to his obsession with Rina Ikoma, the 18-year-old idol and member of girl group Nogizaka46. Naturally he is also a regular attendant at Nogizaka46 handshaking events. These meet-and-greet sessions are where they can have a few seconds of bliss stroking the hand of the idols they adore. He told Rina what he had done at a recent handshaking event. Unfortunately he was less than impressed with her muted response to his confession, crushing his dreams of happiness with the teenaged idol. He now claims to ...

Japanese police have bagged the latest major criminal in the land. An 82-year-old panties thief will meet justice at last after cops in Hyogo Prefecture arrested Tsuyoshi Matsusue on Sunday. The octogenarian had been sighted stealing a 59-year-old woman's pair of underwear from her garden, says Tokyo Reporter. The sprightly pensioner made off with his prize on Sunday morning but the victim's husband gave chase for 200 meters. Unfortunately, his physique was not as strong as his erotic energies, and the 62-year-old husband managed to catch up with the panties thief. When questioned by ...

This month sees the start of the university entrance exams all over exams. It's a tough time to be young. Hours of cramming followed by hours of tests in strange colleges, sometimes in strange cities. How do you keep your spirits up during this stressful time? Well, this youngster was snapped about to take the notorious Center Test. The poor thing, he was taking comfort with a blankie around his shoulders. This being Japan and the examinee being a boy, the blankie was of course an anime character. Moe for exam success! Apparently the unfortunate guy, clearly surfing on his ...

Teachers are of course charged with looking after the future generation. But all teachers are human. Perhaps some a little too human. Previously a model employee, one 29-year-old maths teacher in Toyama Prefecture got himself into some trouble recently when he was particularly imprudent with his choice of lady on a deaikei ("encounters"!) dating site. Masato Terao groomed a girl that he thought was a junior high schooler into having a liaison with him in a hotel for the princely sum of ¥30,000. They then met in a hotel in Toyama City to conduct the business transaction. It turned ...

We've just discovered the Sangre Yakuza blog. It's not in English and we can't understand much Spanish, but we love his (?) tastes! The blog profiles so-called pinku eiga (pink film), a genre of soft-core porn films or films with soft-core porn elements. They were made by so of the greatest and most experimental names in Japanese cinema before they turned more mainstream later in their careers. The blog also features "Roman porno", the subgenre of soft-core pink films particularly made by Nikkatsu in the 1970's. Back in the day pornography was more innocent -- ...

Remember how we blogged about Soineya in Akihabara in 2012? It's the "bed-sharing" facility where you can get to snuggle up with a cute girl for some shut-eye... charged by the hour. About this time last year Soineya opened its second store in Shinjuku's Kabukicho and caused a stir with its new service: Oshiri-makura, ass pillow. As you know, we like Japanese girls' asses. It's still there in Shinjuku, though the "menu" of girls hasn't been updated in over a year. We couldn't resist blogging again about this truly awesome service. This is what you will look like...

"A hard day’s grind for porn’s professionals," as the newspaper has it. The Japan Times has posted a nice, long article about shooting a Japanese porn film. As bloggers who have experienced some Japanese porn shoots ourselves, we were particularly interested in the article. It starts with a factoid we have long boasted of... Japan comes in a distant second in per-capita spending ($157 in 2011) on pornography after voracious South Korea ($527), but when it comes to comparing the sizes of the countries’ homegrown porn industries, there’s no contest. So prominent is Japanese ...

Saeko. The cute little minx was famous for being famous a while back. Then she was famous being a famous baseball player's wife. Then she was famous for divorcing the famous baseball player. Then she was just famous. Kind of. Now she is reinventing herself. She has just released a "semi-nude" sexy photo book this month, Episode 1, which comes after Saeko Snap! last year. Both feature a lot of flesh, confirming our suspicions that Saeko is not just a gold-digging ditzy tarento who may or may not have had plastic surgery. She married Yu Darvish in 2007; it was of course a shotgun ...

The girls are falling thick and fast. We were sad enough when SDN48 -- the "sexy" version of AKB48 -- disbanded in 2012. Then came news at the end of that year that Megumi Ohori, one of it's members, had married a man 12 years older. Now is the bombshell. Megumi is pregnant. People, including us, all speculated that Megumi's marriage was of the shotgun variety and that she was already pregnant. Those rumors turned out to be false but Megumi and her husband were just biding their time, it seems. Now the ripe age of 30, Megumi is way past idoldom and this pregnancy ...
