(Largest Red-light District In Japan.)
Kabukicho [歌舞伎町] is full of host and hostess clubs, bars, strip clubs and love hotels.
At night, all the fun starts. However, the Kabukicho is a little expensive.
A couple of drinks at the host and hostess clubs could cost around 10,000Yen. (around $120),
First of all, walk around and enjoy the atmosphere.
At Tokyo Kabukicho
1. Visit a Host or Hostess Club.
(It is not a dancing club. It is a bar where the waiter or waitress will sit-down and have a chit-chat with you. [Most of the staff doesn’t speak English.] However they are very active and fun.)
* Note: If you are planning to visit a host or hostess club, please be very careful.
Make sure you understand the price system before you make your decision.
A lot of Pottakuri (money rip-off) cases are happening nowadays. (The clubs charge extra then what is promised.)
