Gay Saunas Tokyo


Gay Saunas Tokyo

Like most of gay Tokyo, the majority of saunas and cruise clubs are located in Shinjuku Ni-Chome. In addition to saunas, Tokyo has a number of cruise clubs which are male-only venues allowing guests to get intimate. Similar to Tokyo’s gay bars many of the play venues target a particular gay niche and operate with strict door policies.

Again like many things in Japan, gay saunas can be a very different experience from other countries. Tokyo’s 24 Kaikan is perhaps the most famous gay sauna in the city. From the outside the building could be any boring office or apartment block however once inside the 8 story sauna complex gay Japan becomes alive, with bathtubs, saunas, communal sleeping and optional private rooms. The only rule visible states “Gentlemen who chew gum will be removed”.

For all saunas and cruise clubs in Tokyo bring government ID and take note that the theme venues and nights are strictly enforced.

Shinjuku’s Biggest Gay Sauna

24 Kaikan Shinjuku gay sauna is located in Nichome, Shinjuku-ku (Area 2), Tokyo. The sauna has eight floors and offers a range of facilities. Including tanning beds and cold bathtubs on the rooftop, private cabins for rent, restaurant, bar, and accommodation.

24 Kaikan Shinjuku gay sauna is 24 hours a daily and usually gets busy during the weekend. Unlike some of Tokyo’s saunas, this venue is foreigner-friendly and many come to spend the night after clubbing. Don’t forget to bring your own condoms and lube as it’s not always provided. Just like most of Japan, you may be asked to show your photo ID, passport etc.

24 Kaikan Shinjuku has two other locations in Ueno and Asakusa. However, this is the most popular venue as it’s located in Shinjuku Nichome, the main gay town in Tokyo.

Entry fee rate is 2,500 Yen ($25 USD). Feel free to call and check for promotions at +81 3 3354 2424
