What were we saying yesterday about the police? Well, now they've turned their attention to someone who has been delighting Tokyo in recent months. Twitter has been abuzz with images snapped of an old guy wandering the city dressed in sailor school uniform cosplay and very happy to pose for pictures. He has companions who dress up with him! He even went to France dressed like that. The "seeraa fuku ojisan" (sailor school uniform old guy) is actually Hideaki Kobayashi, aged around 50. His cult has grown to the extent that he's been interviewed by the ...

Mobile phone games can be addictive. One cop found this out to his cost. The 44-year-old Takahiro Ueyama from Hyogo has just got an 18-month sentence for using his position to keep up with his mobile phone game debt, which had apparently reached as high as ¥500,000 ($5,000). That is some addiction! What was the game? An ero game? No, much more mainstream: Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki No Bahamuto). But it seems Ueyama couldn't stop playing. When he got a particularly large phone bill he drove over to the home of a woman he had stopped the previous month for "suspicious behavior" in her ...

Megumi, Kazuki, Tadashi and I like to scour the streets looking for new adventures in Tokyo. But we also make time to read. Obviously, with the amount of crime and dirty antics we report on in this blog, we need to keep a close eye on the weekly tabloids. But we also like to read serious books. One I've been perusing recently is The Inland Sea (1971) by the late, great Donald Richie. Richie was a famous Japan observer, a writer based her from just after the war and who did a lot to promote Japanese cinema in particular. In the early 1960's he took a long trip around the Seto Inland ...

Could this have something to do with "cleaning up" Japan ahead of the upcoming Olympics in 2020? We haven't heard much about a crackdown on enjo kosai for a little while now, after the media panicked about it a few years ago. But the police have launched a big internet hunt for schoolgirls prostituting themselves through euphemisms. This will officially begin on October 21st, aimed at schoolgirls selling used panties or otherwise offering their bodies for willing men. This year, as part of a trial period of the cyber investigation in ten prefectures, they have nabbed 97 minors. ...

Our image of the pimp is typically a young wannabe gangster, flashy clothes with sunshades and a toothpick in his teeth. Beware an old man in a hurry, as the saying has it. The elderly chap in spectacles might just be rushing around arranging sexual encounters for his fellow older acquaintances. Such was the case in Tokyo where the 70-year-old Kiyohide Kuroda was arrested for organizing meet-ups between older men and women in coffee shops, which would then lead onto some more vigorous encounters. Kuroda's arrest stems specifically from a meeting he arranged between a male 67-year-old ...

Otaku of the world, rejoice. Your dreams have come true at last. Virtual idol Hatsune Miku is now "fully" interactive. We already can see and hear her, but now an app allows you to touch and smell her -- and, best of all, to sleep with her. The Sleep With Her app started when an engineer thought that visiting a place like the Soine-ya bed-sharing "snuggle" cafe was too expensive. He developed this way to sleep beside Hatsune Miku as an alternative. You wear it like a big eye pad and it allows you to see your sweet partner dozing beside you. And with some "extras" ...

No, of course not. But this is too tempting. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu may well have a reputation for wacky Harajuku fashions but is she also moonlighting as an JAV star? Sora Harumiya is a brand new starlet who looks set for fame primarily for her looks partially similar to the pop and fashion icon. A mere 19 years old, she no doubt has a long career ahead of her. What do you think? Is Sora similar? And anyway, are you interested in a kawaii porn star? There are actually several JAV actresses whose career has risen due to a resemble to an idol. For example, Anno ...

Be careful what is being poked into your genitals. You might just be losing your life blood... literally. Though Kyoto might have a reputation for being the sophisticated old capital of Japan, there's plenty of kinkiness under the surface. One of these is needle play. Tokyo Reporter had a nice, intriguing report on a recent episode involving a Kyoto bondage mistress. Between June and September, Yuka Fujisawa, 43, is alleged to have used needles and syringes to take blood from the genitals of three male customers, including a 52-year-old office worker from Hyogo Prefecture, while ...

If you're a young girl in school in Japan, take a close look around you. Are those boys in your class really boys? One of them might just be a much older guy in disguise! That is, if the recent case in Kumamoto is anything to go by. A 33-year-old man in Kumamoto City on the southern island of Kyushu had a fetish for schoolgirls' uniforms and just had to get his hands on some. His target was a private high school in the city. Contract employee Akira Katayama was arrested on Sunday for theft, though you've got to admire his stealth and bravado. He put on a male uniform for the school ...

You don't hear much about the mile high club in Japan. It seems to be too sunny and American an idea. Even if you're rich, why bother to go to such efforts when there are love hotels everywhere? While western celebrities are notorious for airplane antics involving stewardesses, this is the first time we've seen sex in the sky in Japanese mainstream culture. And sadly it's only an advert -- but the idea is still very nice. Get shaved by floating girls in bikinis? Too much to be true? Maybe. But with this pair of lovely ladies and their pairs of assets, we find this pretty irresistible ...

Well, the Safe Sex Association would be proud. It is very popular for young Japanese schoolgirls to pose for group pictures in purikura, customizable photo booths where you can add dollops of cute decoration to images. These six ladies have gone the extra mile to add a message that's both personal and social. Contraception. As the writing says, "We use condoms." Would you like to partake of some safe sex with these lovely six lasses? The usual Japanese approach to condoms is not to bother, despite love hotels providing them as a courtesy beside all beds and local maker ...

In Japan, politicos have an average age of circa 82. There are few woman and the few that exist tend to be scarily "driven" types. It's rare you get the full charms of Japan's gentle sex walking the corridors of power. But last February, Asuka Tachikawa stood as an independent in the Niiza City council elections in Saitama, and got elected at the sprightly age of 27. This hottie soon gained the reputation as being "too beautiful" to be a councillor. The knives were out, fueled no doubt by the green-eyed monster. She was then accused of not having lived long enough in the city and ...

We all like tits. Sometimes in Japan there is a dearth of decent-sized breasts, but to dismiss the whole nation's assets over a stereotype is naive. You just have to search for the breasts. Any veteran hunter knows that there are plenty of ladies out there with a lovely sized chest. And then there are these girls who have, shall we say, rather peculiar breasts. Let's start with the perky breasts of JAV star Kotono. And there are just breasts like these which are simply too much to handle -- kyonyu. And then there are ones like this which struggle to find the ...

The tabloids are salivating over the news that Atsuko Maeda, the former starlet of AKB48, may be dating kabuki actor Matsuya Onoe. Though there have been rumors before and drunken pictures seemingly showing Atsuko in the arms of a young man after some late-night partying, this will be the first public romance for the former AKB48 queen. After all, AKB48 bans sex and love for its rank and file members, so in theory Atsuko (22) could still be a virgin. Atsuko's agency has not denied the reports, instead giving an ambiguous statement: "We leave private matters to the person in ...

The first rule of working in the illegal porn industry is: Never send your work to the police. It's an unwritten rule because it's so obvious. But someone needs to let the underground JAV trade in Osaka know because that's exactly what six pornographers did! Since the catalogs they sent included a host of illegal porn DVDs (i.e. uncensored), you are surely only asking for trouble! How did they commit such an elementary blunder? Well, Toshiharu Hidaka (27) and his gang of five other men didn't actually post the catalogs to a police station. However, in their efforts to market their ...

Fresh from graduating from AKB48, Tomomi Itano has decided to change her image. The toothy, duck-faced lady has transformed herself into a hostess! At least that's what seems to be the case if a recent photo she posted on Twitter is to be believed. Could the 2012 TV Commercial Queen be heading for career change so soon? Well, sadly not, though the fashion style is pretty horrendous. For the purpose of comparison, here is what she used to look like, many a moon ago. She's on the top left. It is well known that Tomomi worked briefly as a hostess in Kyushu before she ...

When you Google "TGS" the first prediction is "TGS girls" or "TGS companion". Yes, even though over 270,000 attended -- the most in the history of the event -- all eyes, online, at least, are on the booth girls, known euphemistically as "companions". "Promotion girls". "Race queens". All types of expo and event feature the ladies who have been chosen for their looks and who stand at a booth next to the real employees to help draw in crowds. But the TGS companions are famed for their sexiness. We present a selection of the very ...

Japanese lingerie brand Ravijour has launched its winter collection under the very appropriate name "VerySexy". The promo photo shoot features near lesbian action between the scantily clad models, who once again include haafu Elli Rose, Liv, Mai Miyagi and Azusa Koizumi. Ravijour debuted in 2004 with its line-up of saucy underwear for girls in their twenties. Its rival is Peach John, who is also known for provocative promo images. Both can be called the Victoria's Secret of Japan. We're not sure you can get more enticing advertising than this. Here ...

Stand around outside any major station or crossing in a Japanese city and you will see them. Young guys picking up girls. Sounds pretty universal. Only these guys are not looking for sex for themselves, nor are they the flamboyant hosts looking for customers to take to their bars. These usually young and slender guys are scouts. Their job is to recruit girls to work as hostesses or prostitutes in Japan's whole other dimension of sex shops. They get finder's fees from the businesses that they recruit for and they can often be seen watching the hordes that pass, only to then slink up to ...

The oldies are the goodies. Forget the ever-younger minions of AKB48. There's a goldmine if you just look back a bit in time. Born in 1974, Chiharu Komatsu (小松千春) is one such nearly forgotten hottie that we wanted to rescue. The model and actress was popular in the early Nineties but as she got older, sadly her career waned a bit. Not to worry, she has a body to die for -- and she started to show it. She released hair nude photo books and her cult spiked again. After a failed marriage, she then had a son out of wedlock and is now a single mom on the cusp of forty. To make ...

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 ...
