Tokyo’s escorts have a world-class reputation for their professionalism and elite service
However, the red-light districts offer huge numbers of opportunities to try your luck but be warned that not all are foreigner friendly and some, unfortunately this contact form, may not be safe.
There are some elements of the industry which are under the control of the criminal underworld of the Yakuza and we would strongly recommend that if you are not permitted entry to a venue that you do not cause a disturbance.
Tokyo Escorts Guide
As one of the top five global economic hubs, the city has a huge number of business visitors and some companies have a tradition of treating their guests to the services of a premium Japanese call-girl.
As in any major city, there is also a huge demand for escort services for tourists as well as residents and, as a result, there are thousands of escorts working in the city. They range in age, ethnicity and price with several ways to procure their services.
Prices start at around 15,000 Yen ($135) per hour. High class escorts can cost up to 80,000 Yen ($700) per hour with the most elite charging for a minimum booking of 12 hours.
As an alternative, you can join the popular ‘hookup sites’ Adult Friend Finder or C-Date. Some escorts ply their trade on these sites, as well as a number of ordinary women looking for casual sex. YMMV!
Delivery Health Services
Known as ‘hotel health’ or deriheru, delivery health services can be an outcall offering from massage health parlours or soaplands. Services are a pretty standard offering of massage, kissing and oral/manual relief with some offering anal. In keeping with the law and unlike some escorts, few will offer coital sex.
Escort Agencies & Directories
Escorts working for agencies or independent call girls are slightly different to the delivery health girls in that they are offering ‘compensated dating’. As with escorts in any country, they get around the illegality of prostitution by being compensated for their time as opposed to transacting sexual activities. As a result, many will provide coital intercourse though this is not a guarantee.
Sex in Tokyo
Tokyo’s sex scene is a thriving and diverse one offering punters the opportunity to get a blowjob in a salon (pinsaro), a happy ending rub and tug service (health massage) and companionship with more at hostess bars, KTVs and soaplands. You’ll also find a number of Japanese swinger clubs, both online and offline.
There is something for everyone and plenty in between, all available at varying budgets. The majority of women working in the industry are Japanese though there is a high prevalence of Chinese women. European and other Asian nationalities are represented in the escort trade but not so much in the adult establishments; strip clubs are an exception to this.
When exploring a red light district like Kabukicho (see below), the choice can be overwhelming but it is not always easy to see which venues are offering sexual services. Fortunately, the Japanese have a solution for that. Look for the ‘R18′ logo which should be prominently displayed on a business frontage.
It has two palms held out in a cautionary way centred around the number 18. These are sometimes accompanied by signs written in English that indicate ‘Japanese Only’ or ‘No Foreigners’.

Brothels in Tokyo are known by many other names including sex clubs, soaplands, pinsaros and image clubs, massage parlours. All of them offer slightly different services but none are permitted to offer coital intercourse.
