Gay Clubs Tokyo

Shinjuku Ni-Chome is the center of gay Tokyo, in fact, this neighborhood has the highest concentration of gay bars, clubs and saunas of any city in the world. Don’t expect super clubs here, Ni-Chome is packed with over 300 small individual bars catering to target groups, known in Japanese as Kei. There is something for every desire, bars for heavy guys, transvestites, men who want spanked, hairy men, guys over 70 and of course twinks & young guys.

Like all of Tokyo space is a premium and many of these niche bars have space for only 15 guys max. With capacity so low, diversity suffers. Most bars welcome non-Japanese guests, however as space fills up guests who do not fit the target group may be refused entry or asked to leave.

The most popular gay bars in Ni Chome are Dragon Men and Arty Farty. For clubbing and dancing the ArcH, The Annex and AiSOTOPE Lounge are the most popular choices.
