Every New Year in Japan much of the nation tunes into the five-hour singing show Kohaku Uta Gassen. This year featured the recently remarried (to yet another foreigner!) Ayumi Hamasaki as well as now regulars AKB48, who appeared as all 110 singers. But there was a surprise for AKB fans. Yuko Oshima made the shock announcement that she would be graduating. The twenty-five-year-old is a veteran from the Akiba idol group and is the latest in the most popular members to announce her departure. So far, only Atsuko Maeda has really been able to forge a post-AKB career. Yuko didn't ...

American film website TC Candler has issues its yearly list of "most beautiful faces". Japanese girls featured: Satomi Ishihara was at #32, followed by Nozomi Sasaki at #41, Mirei Kiritani at #46, Haruka Shimazaki (from AKB48) at #56, (recently married to yet another foreigner) Ayumi Hamasaki at #60, and finally Aya Ueto at #99. Despite the ubiquity on Japanese advertising of people like Atsuko Maeda, Emi Takei and Ayame Goriki, they were nowhere in sight and so can be presumed to have little to no global presence. So much for Dentsu. Kiritani was at #12 last year while ...

Haruna Kojima, the 25-year-old AKB48 idol who we believe is the only major AKB girl with anything worth talking about, has released her first photo book "Kojiharu". Just in time for Christmas, the book features a selection of hot images, not least one in which Haruna is doing her best to promote the AKB tradition of the te-bura -- or "hand bra". AKB girls have a habit of doing this kind of shot, though at least this time there is no child involved. Here are some luscious snaps from behind the scenes. And just to prove how nice ...

Over December 6th and December 9th, Japanese Facebook dating app Match Alarm did an online survey of 2,944 male and female Japanese singles in their twenties and thirties. It found some surprising results, most notably that 81.3% of Japanese single women would want an older man for a partner. On the other hand, compounding the stereotype that all Japanese men want innocent maids and anime characters, the survey found that nearly 47% of men wanted a lover who was younger. Things get more logical when broken down into age groups. Both men (51.2%) and women (over 90%!) prefer an ...

Soft on Demand has canceled the release of a porn film featuring the debut of a 21-year-old former actress who graduated from a "noted musical school". No names were specified but it is an open secret that the school was Takarazuka, who have brought out the legal guns to stop their name being "tarnished". Takarazuka is of course the all-female cabaret theatre troupe based in the Osaka area that inspires a devout following among fans, who travel from all over the country to see the women play either the male or female roles in kitschy musicals at theatres in Osaka, Tokyo or other major ...

As widely reported in the media, the police have begun a new campaign cracking down on so-called "walking dates" in Akihabara in Tokyo. On Monday night, a dragnet of 100 police officers raided the famed electronics shopping and otaku subculture district in search of girls of schoolgirl age standing on the streets. Apparently ten girls under 18 were taken into "protective custody". Their crime? Wearing a school uniform on the streets of Akihabara. Recent concerns about walking dates recall the media frenzy on enjo kosai in the 1990's, though this is supposed to be the first major ...

We are no stranger to ploughing the non-kinky fields of Japanese lingerie. Sure the flesh on display may not be anywhere near as revealing as Japanese adult video world or even Gravure idols, but frankly, it is more than enough Along with rival brand Ravijour, Peach John are famously very risque in their models, including with celebrity young ladies like AKB48's Haruna Kojima. They can also perform magic: Converting a modest A-cup bust into something very big and very sexy. For flat-chested Japanese girls, this is a life-saver. Now take a look at the lingerie Peach John has created ...

If you spot a man with scissors on a train, he may not be dangerous but he may be seeking out an unusual method for satisfying his fetish. Especially if he is Masamitsu Ando. Chiba police arrested Ando last Thursday for cutting the skirt of a junior high school student the previous day. The schoolgirl was on a JR train very early in the morning from from Tateyama to Chiba when the 41-year-old company employee used scissors to cut her skirt when she was sleeping in the seat next to him. Young girls should know better than to dozen on trains in Japan, given the danger of being ...

We blogged a few days back about the fascinating story of the double life of elementary school teacher Hitomi Sugawara, part Setagaya ward music pedagogue and part minor porn star. All good things have to come to an end, and in her case it because she was involved with uncensored porn. Having no pixelation was the issue here, not that she was a teacher during the week. We were all speculating about what she looked like. A small image of her online was swiftly removed by her school when she got snagged by the cops. Now proper pictures have now emerged so we can finally see what she ...

Ryoma Sakamoto was a famous figure the era when Japan shifted from a feudal nation to a modern one. He is one of the most popular samurais in Japanese history. But it's also the name of a 30-year-old unemployed guy in Ome City, north Tokyo. This Ryoma Sakamoto was informed by his girlfriend that she wanted to break up with him and the "samurai" was mighty pissed off. So pissed off he set about a plan of action, as any hero would.

Soft on Demand (SOD) are some of our favorite people in the world. Not only do they make fantastic Japanese porn, they are also a retailer who sells and distributes other production companies' products. Kaku-butsu is SOD's incredible fuzoku (sex club) portal site, providing information and rankings on hundreds of clubs in Japan. The name literally means "every thing" and it lives up to its boasts of comprehensiveness. You can see the club's prices, their area, their services (i.e. can the girl be "delivered" to your love hotel or apartment, or do you pick her up at the club?), ...

Caught in the act. A smart lady has caught a man trying not too discreetly to snap a shot of her panties while sitting opposite her on the train. She then put it on Twitter for the world to see. If her tweets are to be believed, she would appear to be a high school student. This kind of thing happens every day in Japan. There are lots of perverts on the trains, including so-called respected professionals. It reminds us of this other incompetent snapper on a train, himself photographed being none too subtle about his under-the-skirt ...

That's right. That headline is not wrong. This has to be one of the most awesome collaborations we've heard of in a long time and vindicates our years of campaigning for mainstream sex doll recognition. Lady Gaga has teamed up with Orient Industry to make a sex doll molded on the Queen of Pop. The result is the Gagadoll. This is how Universal Music Japan describe it: Japan's latest and finest technologies were put into the creation of the "GAGADOLL". It's the world's first life-size human-shaped listening station that closely resembles Lady Gaga. The bone conduction ...

We all have fantasies about sexy teachers. Some of us early adopters were even indulging in these as young as elementary school age. Well, those fantasies exist for a reason. Because there are women like Hitomi Sugawara (27), an elementary school teacher from Yokohama who "assisted" in a porn shoot as an actress. Hitomi was a music teacher but got involved with men making porn. The fruits of their labors was then streamed online for a fee. This plucky lass was trying to make a buck in the brave new world of internet porn. But in Japan, you cannot circumvent the big boys in the industry ...

The tabloid FRIDAY has snapped pictures of JAV porn star Makoto Yuuki entering the home of veteran TV personality and comedian Sanma Akashiya at around 11pm in mid-November and then leaving some 14 hours later. Sanma Akashiya's daughter, IMALU, is a year older than Makoto (23), who is a former Race Queen and minor porn star. This is Sanma. And this is Makoto Yuuki. ...and leaving Sanma's home. While I love Sanma on TV, I think the guy needs to get a reality check when it comes to his dating habits. The horny devil was also reported to have gone on an intimate ...

They might look like sweet, innocent girls. But they're not. And now their secret has been calculated. In September, the economist Yasuyuki Iida published a book, Yoru no keizaigaku (Nightnomics), in which he worked out the number of women in Japan who have worked in prostitution in some form, based on analysis of real data. He says that 1 woman in every 20 is likely a sex worker or has been a sex worker. "At present, there are around 10,000 sex clubs/shops (fuzoku) operating in Japan. If we look at their websites at who is working there, we could say that there are around 30 ...

For all their rabid consumption of Japanese porn, a large amount of men in the country actually fantasize about marrying a different sort of girl. The TV "announcer". These are the intelligent girls who graduated from such colleges as Sophie University, she kind of girl you can have a conversation with and not be bored, and who would cook you something that goes with wine. Women like Christel Takigawa, the thinking man's crumpet. Ryoko Mima was born in 1984. For many years the weather presenter on a TBS morning show, she has been a been a middle-class favorite for a while -- ...

It is the series of days in which it showcases its latest models and futuristic concept cars both for the world press, industry people and the general public.

We've been sitting on this story for a few days to see how it would pad out. And it just keeps on getting better and better. The tabloid Shukan Bunshun has been publishing a series of photos of AKB48 manager Tomonobu Togasaki smoking (legal) drugs and meeting girls at love hotels. Togasaki is photographed smoking H Zone 12th, a legal stimulant, in a stairwell of a posh bar in central Tokyo. Though it is not suggested -- yet! -- that 40-year-old Togasaki has been grooming the hundreds of idols and wannabe idols he manages or auditions for his own sexual predilections, the tabloid has ...

Japanese TV doesn't have a real watershed. Whatever the hour, you are unlikely to find any real content that couldn't be seen by families, except for the occasion HBO import. But that doesn't mean the broadcasters don't push the boundaries of the risque. That's what Idol no Ana does, and does so very well. Even down to its title -- "Idol's Hole" -- if we're being literal, and the program makers certainly are. Because this Gravure idol survival show puts the young girls through their paces in a variety of humiliating physical tasks, including licking things, stroking things and ...

We're reaching that age when the ladies a little older than us who we loved as youngsters are getting to the tipping point. Kanako Kojima (小島可奈子) is one. We've eulogized her assets before, this svelte, charming lady who does not mind trying her luck with the "hair nude" photo shoot. Now comes the news that actress Kanako has had her first child at the age of 38. She married a company director in 2011 and since then has been trying for a baby through artificial insemination. She delighted people by putting on semi-nude pictures of her pregnant body on her ...

In early September we blogged about the exciting news that yet another former AKB48 starlet had made the logical jump from minor idol fame to JAV porn legend. As one of our readers commented, "It almost seems that the girl groups are designed to create future porn stars." So Risa Naruse (born 1993) was re-christened Haruna Aisaka and starred in "National Idol". We've managed to get hold of some of "hair nude" full-frontal shots of Risa/Haruna so we can all revel in the what the AKB48 management pretend to keep hidden (while actually exploiting it fully, of course). Note how ...

We all like a nice knob. But some people like a knob more than others, especially the door knob. While usually relegated to the purely functional task of opening or closing doors, knobs have other charms and two people have been exploring the girls who know this. Photographer Ai Ehara and manga-ka/illustrator Ryuko Azuma started the Door Knob Girl project in order to gather images of young Japanese girls licking door knobs (and also, to be precise, door handles). Yes, that's pretty much the gist of it. It started in 2010 and in 2012 they released a photo book ...
