Hagoromo-yu is a public bathhouse located in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, which has been popular among the gay community in the past. However, it is not as boldly open as the famous gay onsen (hot spring) Konpira Onsen in Osaka, and the bathhouse management has faced some complaints over the years.

As a result, while Hagoromo-yu does attract many gay patrons, there is not a significant amount of overt sexual activity taking place. Visitors are expected to observe proper etiquette during their visit.

The operating hours are from 2 PM to 1:30 AM, with the bathhouse closed on Fridays. The bathing fee is 460 yen, and the combined sauna and bathing fee is 1,000 yen. Overnight stays are not permitted, and there are no specific restrictions on tattoos.

The facilities include a dry steam room, massage bath, indoor bath, and outdoor bath.

Daikuroyu is a historic public bathhouse located near Tokyo's Nakano Station. It is beloved by people of all ages, and due to its convenient location, it attracts a significant number of young, fit patrons, with a high proportion of attractive men. As closing time approaches, the number of gay visitors increases.

It is well-known as a popular gay bathhouse, with a reputation that even rivals the famous gay onsen (hot spring) Konpira Onsen in Osaka.

Located in Kitashinjuku, there's a fantastic Tokyo gay sauna known as Muscular Haven. It's a place where the muscular hunks can feel right at home. While the crowd tends to be more selective, especially on weekends with young hunks, it's important to note that they prioritize a certain physique. If you don't fit that criteria, don't worry, there are plenty of other great places to explore. Inside, you'll find a dark zone featuring large rooms, private rooms, and even a room with a swing for some interesting fun. If you're planning to visit, Saturdays or Sundays before 6 p.m. are the best times to drop by and enjoy the experience.

average rating is 3.5 out of 5

Shibuya Street is a popular cruising spot in Shibuya known for its vibrant gay sauna in Tokyo. It primarily appeals to a younger crowd with a slim fit and often hosts the swimwear event. typically up to 38 years old, and restricts entry to those who are overweight or have long hair. Notably, they do not require passport checks for entry. which means you have a chance if you are young or good-looking. An interesting thing is that they have a special area that you cannot even reject from somebody whatever they do. It's my first time hearing that from a gay sauna.
