I genuinely love Kabukicho, from the brightly-decorated entrances to the less brightly-decorated hosts themselves. One might think that the area devoted to love hotels and host clubs in a city the size of Tokyo might be sleazy, but it really isn’t.

I hope you enjoyed my photo walk around Kabukicho. If you want to see more of Tokyo, you might also like my photos of Asakusa, which is a more traditional area. If you were only here for the pretty boys (sorry!), maybe you’ll have better luck with my review of Space Battleship Yamato (movie) or my list of the top 10 anime musicals and shows.
