It also means that more people leave the club and head somewhere to wait for the last train — usually a after-hours restaurant. Needless to say, these are some very attractive women! While the hostess bars are a bit of a trap expensive, almost always leads nowhere beyond transparent flattery and conversation , meeting such girls outside of their clubs can make for memorable encounters. More on that later. There are already a ton of great articles on TNO about all sorts of clubs and the types of music you can find at each.
But since this article is about hooking up, I want to start out by pointing out that there are two main types of clubs, with a spectrum in between them. Often, the people who go to these clubs ONLY go to these clubs, or follow events around the city at different clubs, such as the Psy-trance crowd going to Mother events and raves in Shizuoka.
At these types of clubs, the best approach is to A. Womb, Harlem, Air, Ageha depending on the night , etc Meat market clubs. These clubs generally play top 40 and EDM hits. In this type of venue, they key for men is to approach, approach, approach.
Talk to lots of girls, and move them around the venue. Talk to her for five minutes, then head to the bar for a drink or the dance floor. Moving her around and then eventually out of the club will work better and be a lot more fun than trying to initiate a long-winded, effusive dialogue with her while jammed in a corner between the Mevius companion girls handing out free cigarettes and the line for the ladies toilet.
For ladies, the strategy is much simpler. If you see a particular guy who strikes your fancy you could move to be directly in front of him, and make eye contact occasionally. By and large, the clubs in Roppongi will be a bit more friendly to foreigners. Many clubs in Shibuya can be a bit harsh for foreign guys and Japanese girls might not be into foreigners or at least not want to be seen hanging out with them.
Once again, your ability to put her at ease and have a fun interaction mitigates this. Japanese ability and cultural understanding helps loads. Gas Panic Roppongi V2 Muse. The now defunct super-club Feria hosts events here, and the crowd here is foreigner-friendly, although the venue is a bit small. The tradeoff is that these clubs are quite small.
Ramen Ingrained in the very fabric of Japanese society is the idea that after a long night of drinking, everybody goes to eat ramen. Notably, if what I wrote about hostesses piqued your interest, the Okubo Don Quixote sees quite a few pass through after am. The After-Hours Clubs While most clubs are only open until 5am, a few after-hours clubs keep the party bumping far into the daylight hours.
Jumanji now Myst is free after 5am, and often still packed when normal families are drinking their morning miso. Oath is open until 8am on weekends on the Shibuya side of the Aoyama tunnel. Where can you go if your place is not an option? There are many alternatives. There are relatively few in Roppongi seems like a huge oversight on their part!
In Shinjuku they are located deep past Kabukicho towards Okubo. Usually by the late hours of the night, many are full so you might have to walk to a few before you find one which has vacancy.
Karaoke rooms often have glass windows in the doors, and a camera in the room as well. The room is dark anyway. As such, you might want to keep relatively quiet, and a curious customer might peer over the barrier. However, they are quite cheap and have hot coffee, instant ramen, manga, and even showers!
The options are limited only by your imagination and modesty. These are all options in which I have personally partaken in Japan. Hope you guys enjoyed this post.
