Nude sunbathing in the Tokyo area


Question:   Can you go nude sunbathing anywhere in Tokyo?

Just saw that you know a lot of places for sunbathing in Tokyo......will be there on sunday morning for 2 days only.......i'm a WGM from France 40 yo.....will stay in Shinjuku.....so could you recommend me a nice place not too far to be naked ? do you know may be a gay bar with naked or underwear party ?

My Answer:
Most of the places are far and too complicated to explain, but there's one (or two)  that might work: The one I usually hang out at during warmer weather is a secluded, wooded river front area near a public recreation area on the Tama River (in Fuchu City).  I explain more about it further below.
However, for tourists and visitors, the one easier to find is Odaiba or お台場海浜公園 is a public  seaside recreation area on reclaimed land in Tokyo Harbor.   Remember Odaiba is in a pubic park so being nude should be done with caution.   



Sometimes men get naked for sunbathing (or nearly naked) on a island at Odaiba Marine Park.  There's a seaside beach park (manmade beach) at Odaiba, but people sometimes sunbathe, but not actually nude on the beach. Instead, a few do get naked (or almost naked) on the man-made island to the far right and around.  The island has a historical significance which I won't go into now.  But it's semi-isolated and there are some spots that lend themselves to sunbathing and sometimes semi-nude or discreetly nude sunbathing.   Note: Public nudity is illegal in Japan and heavy fines (including imprisonment are possible), but fairly rare (partly because no one does it where they can get caught).  Still you should take precautions and be discreet. 

Public Baths and Hot Springs Resorts  (non -sexual rest and relaxation but plenty of nudity). 

If you just want to get naked with other males in a non-sexual environment, then you could try one of the onsen (hot springs resort) -- outside the city, or visit one of the newer onsen inside the city. Public baths used to be found in nearly every community, but more recently the majority have closed and some have been replaced by a commercial hot spring bath.  There are over 50 locations where a public bath has been replaced by a hot springs day-resort with the great city limits of Tokyo.   These are legitimate mineral (salt) baths that provide a relaxing place for family fun; in some cases, there are massage services on the premises, and some even have body work services.   There is no hidden sexual meaning to any of these services, even though it might appear differently.  For example,  the hot spring bath I go to in Hino City (western Tokyo) has a body-scrubbing service. The man' s body is rubbed with an abrasive (not too harsh) cleanser and the dead skin cells are removed for about 1,000 yen (in addition to the entrance fee to the baths - 800 yen).  The male is nude and keep in semi-privacy behind a screen (although it was easy enough to peep over and get a look at the youngish woman rubbing the naked man's body).  Of course, that isn't a turn-on sexually for me, but it made me wonder if some of the staff who do this might actually be male. 

 Some of these hot springs baths have an outdoor bath pools adjacent to the indoor bath area. These roten-buro ( 露天風呂  - secluded, hidden from public view outdoors baths) are a nice way to get an up-close look at Japanese men - in groups and often accompanying their families, small children, and teens, or their school or work friends (or teammates).  The costs range from about 800 - 1800 yen and there are typically restaurants, and a lounge area (with TVs) where you can relax in a bath gown outside of the bath-time. 

 How to get there:   
Take the Yurikamome Train (a monorail leaving from Shimbashi Station, a couple of stops south  of Tokyo Station, JR Yamanote Line (Green circle train).   Get off at Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Marine Park) - first stop after crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Then walk to Odaiba Beach (5 min), and then walk to the far right, turn on a causeway that stretches out into the harbor toward an island.  On that island, in discreet places, sometimes guys get naked (or almost naked). It obviously depends on the weather, and I imagine Sundays arehh bn  rather busy with tourists and sightseers so it would likely be difficult to be discreet.


If you have only two days, I would recommend instead your going to 24 Kaikan in Shinjuku. 
It's a gay baths (and hotel) with an outdoors sunning area on the top floor.  Nudity has to be discreet  -- there are CCTV cameras  on the roof- but it is possible to get naked, and there is a shower area where you can also be nude as you shower.   Also you will have the several floors below of sauna, play rooms, shower stalls, etc, where gay sex goes on.

Local cruising spot in Fuchu City on the Tamagawa River

府中市側で稲城大橋に近い、水遊びの公園のそばです。多摩川~で服全部脱いでフェラしたり…オナニー見せたりしたいです。顔射して下さい





For me, there's a much closer spot.  In spring, summer and warm days in the fall, I go out to the Tama River not too far from where I live (near the Inagi O-hashi Bridge - just 300 m north of it), and discreetly sunbathe nude or semi-nude (depending on how many people are around).  There is also a gay cruising area there which is near a public park located right on the banks of the river.  It's a wooded area that is located actually in the river bed, which is down below the flood embankment and in the land between the embankment and the actual river ( where the river narrows and widens as it meanders in its course).  The wooded thicket is on a raised area (perhaps an island many years ago), and men get naked there for sunbathing and also gay cruising.  It seems never to be really busy but gets its most visitors on weekends and holidays in the afternoons and before nightfall. Obviously, most are local Japanese men.

If you'd like to go or would like to join me there (when it warm enough), you can contact me for directions.

  Here I am at the X-spot.  I like being seen by clothed or partly nude men.



The photos above are of the public park (wading pools and streams for people and kids to play in the water). Just beyond and behind this wading pool (lower photo) area, heading toward the river itself), you can find the hidden cruising spot.  You'll often see a couple of bicycles parked along the embankment as 'visitors' have parked them there.
  This is just beyond the wading pond, right on edge the concrete embankment.  It's usually where I park my bicycle. The Inagi Ohashi Bridge can be seen in the background.  On the far left and middle of the photo is the edge of the wading pool.

 There's a small tree in the foreground (ignore it), but it's on the embankment which is a flood levy built out of concrete and concrete tiles. Look further along and towards the very center of the photo, and you'll see a tree right on the edge of the embankment.  It's a large tree with abundant branches that spread out like an umbrella.

Just before that tree,  you can go down the concrete embankment to a trail.  There should be a trail worn between the tall grass and bushes - a least in summer, early fall there is. The trail is about 25 meters long and leads up into the dense ticket where the cruising and nude sunbathing goes on.   If you make your way into this hidden islet (usually no water), you will find a low area among the trails. There are 3 walnut trees and some willow trees there which is where the fun goes on.

  Sometimes guys make a pretense of sitting or standing around that area near the tree. That way they can see who is going in to cruise and will follow if they are interested in pursuing.  Sometimes, a fellow or a coule of fellows will sit and smoke or have canned drinks while they are waiting.

I haven't been there enough to know any patterns for what time of day or which days are busy. Fridays can be busy. I once saw a naked guy scurrying off in the bushes beyond the inland island thicket. Saturdays and Sundays and holidays would also tend to be busier... but there can be no guarantees.



Map / Directions: See the Google map below. You can walk (about 18-25 min) from Musashinodai Station   (Keio Line from Shinjuku, take an express train to Chofu, then a local train to Musashi-no-dai).  The wading pond visible in the above photo is located on the map. There a man-made stream that runs from the wading pond to the right (north west) for about 150 meters.  The cruising spot is just beyond the wading pond.
