  1. Soapland

    Soapland or sōpu is a Japanglish word constructed from the two English words "soap" and "land" and is part of Japan's sex industry also known as Mizu shōbai. Since sexual intercourse for money is officially prohibited by the Japanese government, many different types of brothels in Japan have been developed. In Soapland, clients engage in non-penetrative sex with prostitutes to achieve orgasm. Typically, male clients are laid upon a waterproof mattress where they are then covered in personal lubricant and massaged to orgasm by the female prostitute's body. This avoids the technicalities of the law by officially stating that the clubs do business where the client is bathed. Although the main clientele for soaplands are male, there are also a few soaplands specifically for female clients. There are various kinds of soaplands, and they are usually located in complexes with varying numbers of soaplands. Well-known complexes are located in Susukino in Sapporo, Yoshiwara and Kabukicho in Tokyo, Kawasaki, Kanazuen in Gifu, Ogoto in Shiga and Fukuhara in Kobe and Sagaminumata in Odawara but there are many other areas, especially in onsen towns. Prices for a session at a soapland vary depending on location, time of day, and length of the session.
