Sopran or Health Club - Adult Tip
These are called different things but are basically the same. Health Clubs are the more modern version and make house calls. The long and short of these, (and I didn't visit one myself and even if I had a lot won't cater to foreigners because of the fear of AIDS) is that you go to a sopran and in exchange for money you are given some drinksand snacks, along with a girl who gives you a body wash or sponge bath, followed by a full massage. the experience ends with fellatio.
Now I made a tie betwen the Sopran and prostitution, quite logically in my mind, but it doesn't seem the Japanese do, possibly because there is no vaginal sex involved and possibly because this is a custom dating back a thousand years or more. Liek a lot of things involving Japan, I'm not sure, but I can say that this is a more or less open and accepted facet of Japanese life. Japanese men are not ashamed to frequent a Sopran in the slightest and it seems to carry absolutely no social taboo or stigma. The prices don't even seem that steep, which to me indicates that there are probably quite a few of them.
The picture above, taken from the street, is of a Health Club, which, as I said before, makes house (or hotel) calls. The place also seemed to lack the kind of raunchy smell and feel of western sex shops, displaying once again, a very different mentality evenif I doubt you will ever see a Sopran on a Japanese girl's resume.
