Soaplands are places where men go to have a “bath” with a woman. There is a very long history of Soaplands in Japan. In Tokyo, certain areas of the city offered different types of baths or massage options.
Shinjuku’s Ni-Chome area is famous for having the world’s highest concentration of gay bars with over 300 crammed together in this relatively small area. This area is safe at all times of the day or night and on weekends it can become a very busy place!
