Here is an awesome, belated Christmas present for you folks: nude photos of Moemi Katayama that have leaked ahead of the official release of her new photo book out next year. The 26-year-old Katayama has become increasingly better known over the past 1-2 years. She released her first photo book in September and the new one, "Rashin", comes out on January 5th. Since 2015 she has been a favorite gravure idol for weekly tabloid magazine shoots, and even appeared in a Kirin ad in May. This, though, is by far the most explicit the busty G-cup gravure idol has ...

When so many idols and models are releasing their own new photo book every month, how do you stand out? Well, the producers of the new Ai Okawa photo book came up with a novel marketing strategy that will certainly take some beating. It meant you could experience undressing the alluring fashion model with a "bra strap" attached to the reverse of her latest photo book. It allows the enthusiastic male reader to unclip the bra from Ai Okawa's naked back. And when your Ai Okawa fantasies run dry (as if), you can even use the bra wrapping to practice your girl-undressing ...

More images have emerged from Minami Minegishi's new photo book. There was some initial buzz about it last month over a preview "hand bra" picture that appeared. Now some other images have appeared and they show Minami Minegishi at her slinky best. "Watashi wa Watashi" (I am Me) is shot by famed nude photographer Meisa Fujishiro. It went on release on July 12th but so far hasn't been selling well. In fact, the major AKB48 photo book releases from Rino Sashihara and Haruna Kojima sold much better. Now that Haruna Kojima will graduate AKB, the last ...

The "hair nude" is a curious Japanese-English phrase. It refers not just to naked flesh; it's naked flesh with genital hair. What is "shocking" here is the display of pubic hair, the line by which art and entertainment is usually fettered in Japan. It is fine to have plenty of nudity in films and publications, but to avoid the century-old ambiguous obscenity laws, people censored or did not show actual pubic hair. The hair nude set out to deliberately show this was something to be challenged, legally and artistically. While the likes of Nobuyoshi Araki had already made erotic ...

We got pretty excited when news broke in May that model Haruna Yabuki was releasing a hair nude photo book by Kishin Shinoyama. Now that the collection -- called simply "Haruna" -- has hit the shelves, we are pleased that some scans are making the rounds online. More will surely emerge over the weeks -- and hopefully better quality ones, too. For now, enjoy Haruna's lush thirty-something body. If she seems too good to be true, remember that her celebrity boyfriend wasn't satisfied and two-timed her with a hostess. She literally found him in bed ...

Yuki Aoyama and his Schoolgirl Complex series has fast become the pseudo-artistic erotic photography phenomenon of the 2010s. If you have a thing for waif-like, slender angels, then Aoyama's work is for you. Well, School Complex 4 has come out and this time the theme is schoolgirls "flipping" each other's skirts -- a theme also explored in calendars, of course. As Kenny Everett said: All in the best possible taste! To celebrate, there is an exhibition at Yukai Hands Gallery, in the Waseda area, from July 22nd to July 31st. We love how a section of the ...

Ahead of the release in July of her new photo book, a preview image of Minami Minegishi has come out showing the slinky idol doing the classic semi-nude "hand bra" (tebura) pose. While pretty tame considering what some AKB48 graduates get up to, this kind of photo shoot has become something of a rite of passage for AKB48 idols. Haruna Kojima did it, covering her gorgeous pale flesh with her tiny hands. Likewise, Atsuko Maeda has done a tebura and so did Yuko Oshima in a Mika Ninagawa shoot. Most notoriously, Tomomi Kasai's tebura was so controversial it led Kodansha to cancel ...

We've always been a fan of the older idols. We find the photo shoots sexier and the woman more alluring. From Chiharu Komatsu to Naomi Kawashima and Azumi Kawashima, our glory days are the 1990s and early 2000s, especially when the so-called "hair nude" shoots were still at their peak. Kanako Kojima is one such beauty. Born in 1975, her career height was from around 1997 for a few years as an actress and tarento. Towards the end -- in 2006 -- she released a great hair nude photo book. She also showed off her naked pregnant body. These days she is in her forties and out of the ...

Like big boobs? Check. Like things being wrapped around big boobs? Check. Yes, this photo book by Yuji Susaki may have it all. Wrap the Boobs is a new photo book about Japanese girls with giant breasts (not quite bakunyu but getting there) and how wrapping their perfect jugs in things can heighten the visual feast. The photographer is previously known for his work with cosplayers like idol group Dempagumi.inc.. Models in the new photo book -- out now from Ichijinsha -- include Hikaru Aoyama, Mizuki Katase, Jun Amaki (formerly of the masked idol group Kamen Joshi), and the ...

The alluring gravure idol and actress Haruna Yabuki (formerly known as Mari Abe) has gone fully nude in a "hair nude" shoot for Golden Week in a weekly tabloid magazine, shot by the famed photographer Kishin Shinoyama. Though she has done semi-nude shoots before, this is a new step for the 1984-born Yabuki, who has officially now become a jukujo like Manami Hashimoto or Mitsu Dan. The truth is, Yabuki's career is at a bit of an ebb. She broke up with her idiot celebrity boyfriend after she caught him in bed with a hostess. It's been years since she was releasing photobooks and gracing ...

Japanese sportswomen are hot. Really hot. Whether it's volleyball players or bodybuilders, snowboarders, boxers or baseball players, these ladies have brawn and agility -- and would be powerhouses of energy in the sack. Joining this list is Risa Izumi. She once represented Japan in gymnastics for the Athens Olympics but her career has taken a different turn now. Today she is a nude model with a recent photo book release... and what a body she has. Like Yuki Eda has done before her, Risa Izumi fully shows off her slim and trim form with these naked poses. As you can see from the ...

One of the gravure idols gaining more and more mainstream exposure for reasons that should be obvious, Hitomi Yasueda is known for having a great ass and having an armor fetish. So we are all really happy that she has now shown off her voluptuous butt to the full in her latest photo book, "Hitomi Shiri" (Hitomi's Butt). Former race queen Yasueda has a nice D-cup bust and this is also there to tempt us, covered with sand so that her modesty is just about preserved. Cock tease! The "sandy breasts" remind us of a similar shoot by Seira Sato. Hopefully some more scans ...

Has Rino Sashihara gone too far this time? In her new photo book released on March 22nd, Sashihara is basically naked, showing off her ass. So far, the reaction online has been mixed, with some excitement mixed with anger that another AKB idol has stepped over a line. The debate has centered on if she is wearing panties or not. Is there a thong between her buttocks? The man-eater is already notorious for her exile from AKB to the HKT48 sister group for having sex with a fan. Sashihara's new photo book doesn't yet have an official title but we expect it will break ...

Maggy has never been a stranger to slinky shoots, having modeled for Peach John lingerie catalogues since 2012. The haafu model and tarento has now gone further and stripped off for two new solo photo books, "I'm Maggy" and "Your Maggy", that show off her fey body a lot more. It's funny, the people who buy these photo books are actually mostly girls who want to get style and beauty tips off a model they admire. Guys are free to jerk off to them too, of course, for no extra charge. Here are some older pics of ...

Rie Miyazawa's photo book "Santa Fe" came out in 1991, making the hair nude photo-book genre very famous. "Santa Fe" was a huge hit for Rie Miyazawa and photographer Kishin Shinoyama. It then became popular for young stars to announce their maturity through hair nude shoots -- plus a way to relaunch their career, as Miyazawa very successfully did. Compared to other "hair nude" photo books, though, "Sante Fe" is relatively tame. You only get a glimpse of Rie's bush. (Compare, say, to Saki Takaoka's hair nude shoot.) In a curious detail that has only been revealed ...

Fetish Fashion Tokyo (or FetishFashion.Tokyo) is a new photography book showcasing the fetish scene in Japan's capital. Released on October 10th, it features photography by Peter W Czernich and modeling from mannequin duo FEMM and Hirari Ikeda (that's her on the cover). Contributors include latex brands Kurage and Atsuko Kudo. The book is bilingual, in English and Japanese, and edited by fetish magazine Infamous Magazine. Don't expect anything hard-core in the book. From the looks of things, its focus is on latex fetish as a fashion statement more than a sexual ...

We swiftly became fans of curvy, sultry Machiko Tezuka when she first stripped off for a hair nude shoot in 2013. Formerly of now disbanded SDN48, the J-cup mistress has gone through several name changes: from Machiko Tezuka (her real name) to Ourei Harada (Gravure debut) to Eiko Maeda (SKE48 debut), and back to Machiko Tezuka (SDN48 debut). Now the 1986-born Machiko has stripped off again this year for some more photos. She is promoting a new photo book out in October, hence the motivation to take her clothes off again for the tabloids. Hey, we certainly won't complain about some ...

Yuka Kuramochi has legions of fans for one simple reason: her butt. She has one of the curviest of asses in Gravure idol, which is complemented perfect by a slim waist and large bust. It apparently measures over 100cm! And now Yuka Kuramochi has done perhaps her sexiest shoot yet. And it really shows off her naked flesh in a shoot for Young Animal magazine. The 23-year-old idol is promoting her new photo book "Funbashiri", shot partly at her family home in Funabashi, Chiba. (The title is a pun on the city ...

Fumi Nikaido is a sprightly 20-year-old Okinawan but already acquired has legions of fans. A child star, she made her debut as a junior idol when 12. She is probably best known overseas for her role in Himizu in 2011. In addition to her prolific career (starring in several films a year), she posed nude for Weekly Playboy in 2014 and an accompanying photo book. Sadly, it wasn't a full-frontal "hair nude" shoot, though that might even be illegal, given that she was under 20. No breasts on display yet but give her time... It was also ...

It's no secret that this blog showcases its fair share of female nipples. But what about men? Men have two nipples, don't you know! They tend to get a bad rap: some metrosexual guys in Japan even cover up their nipples with stickers. Well, if you have a hankering for male nipples, then you might want to check out this book, spotted at the recent Comiket. With photography by Minatsuki, “I love everyone! Man’s nipple” is everything you would expect from such a title. While there may be some people who want to gaze at large images of male nipples -- and ...

With the notable exception of Gravure models and porn stars, most Japanese women's busts are on the small side. Of course, that doesn't mean they can't be cute. Whole fashion lines have emerged to enhance the looks of flat-chested women, as well as some bras to make your breasts appear smaller. Evidence even suggests that Japanese men prefer women with flat chests to the stereotypes of female beauty. There is also a hinnyu ("poor breasts") Gravure idol called Mana. Granted, she's hardly in the top of her league but the fact that there are idols who trade on their hinnyu style ...

The career of Haruna Kojima (known as Kojiharu to her fans) may be on the wane, having lost the lucrative Peach John lingerie modelling gig to Saeko and her sizzling charm. But that doesn't mean she doesn't have the power still to shift magazines. To launch her new photo book, Kojiharu has been featured on the cover of Playboy magazine. Inside is a sweet photo shoot showing off her pale body. There is some serious Photoshop going on here, though. Kojiharu famously has very sensitive skin and close-ups on TV usually reveal this. Her new photo book is called "Dou suru?" ...

We love Yumi Sugimoto. The slinky idol is one of the top Gravure models in Japan. And the 26-year-old has finally answered our wishes and stripped off for her new photo-book "Chiamata", some highlights of which were recently published in FRIDAY and Shukan Playboy magazines. Okay, let's not get too excited. This isn't true hair nude territory or even nude in the same way that Ayaka Sayama stripped off recently. But it's by far the most explicit shoot Yumi Sugimoto has done. And it REALLY got us ...

Kamen Joshi have released a new semi-nude swimwear-themed photo book. The Akihabara underground idol (chika aidoru) group famously wears hockey masks but in "Mizugi Kamen" (Swimwear Mask) there will be more flesh on display than usual. The photo book features on the cover Anna Tachibana, Erina Kamiya (G-cup bust!) and Jun Amaki (I-cup!). The book features 105 sexy images of the girls, including semi-lesbian bed scenes. Kamen Joshi has three sub-groups: Alice Juban, Steamgirls and Armorgirls. The Alice Project idol group is famous for being masked (their name means "masked girls") ...

Like that perennial stumper "Where do elephants go to die?", the question of what happens to all the scores of AKB48 idols once they "graduate" is often on our minds. Sure, some go on to mildly successful acting careers. But for the most, there is only oblivion or a career in porn. Faced with this dilemma, Anna Mori decided to go to the grassroots. She launched this crowdfunding campaign to get her first photo book into publication. Why should only the "top" ladies get all the kudos and merchandise? She has her fans too! As she turned 20 (and thus an adult -- yes!), she set a ...
