Jan Jan is a low-end blowjob bar (known in Japanese as a pink salon or pinsaro) in the Sugamo section of Tokyo.
Only a short distance from the Sugamo train station, Jan Jan is an easy to find pinsaro that is set apart from the large number of blowjob bars in Tokyo by its willingness to accept foreigners without hesitation.
You can’t really miss the place. Take the south exit of Sugamo station. Look for Hotel Mentels and walk down the alleyway next to it. When you start down that row filled with various blowjob shops you will usually be ignored by the touts who stand around all day and try to attract customers. But under a long pink sign that says “Jan Jan” with white letters in Japanese, the Jan Jan tout will be trying to wave you in with a big smile. He may also say “Jan Jan” to let you know that you’re there. They know what foreigners are looking for around there.
If you stop by during the day, a nice bareback blowjob will run 3000 yen ($37 US). If you come during the evening or night, the same thing will cost you 4000 yen ($49 US). You’ll pay in the front at the cash register, either to a male manager or a female mamasan. You don’t need to speak any Japanese at all to get in, which is a bonus for short time visitors. After you pay you’ll be lead to a booth and given a cup of iced barley tea.
The place is pretty old and sleazy inside. It’s actually a bit of a dump as far as Japanese places go, but it’s nowhere near as bad as some of the brothels in other countries. At least you don’t have to worry about bed bugs or anything like that. There are two rows of booths. The backs of the seats go up far enough to give you a decent amount of privacy, but you will occasionally see a leg or the top of the head of a girl working in the booth in front of you. The air is a bit smoky but not too bad. If you have a jacket, hang it on the hook in the booth.
You can sometimes see a little into the other booths. But don’t stare. That’s just bad manners. After a short wait while you get to enjoy the cheesy dance music and occasionally sucking sounds, one of the women working there will come to your booth. Scantily clad, they will try to engage in some small talk. If you speak Japanese, go ahead and engage. If not, just let them know and they’ll probably just get right into it. Luckily here they don’t seem to mind much whether or not you speak the language. They’re kind and eager to please regardless.
You’ll be asked to pull your pants down. The girl will wipe your cock off with some baby wipes and then strip naked. You can engage in some foreplay here if you want. There seems to be a lot more flexibility on that here than in the Strawberry Club a few stations away in Otsuka. A lot of girls are happy to let you kiss them, finger fuck them or even lick their love boxes. You will occasionally see a guy in a 69 here. But not all girls are up for it. Let them guide you. There was once a very cute 20 something girl working here with great tits and a good hands-free blowjob technique. She wouldn’t let you do anything but tweak her tits a bit, but it really didn’t matter because she was an expert at oral semen extraction.
Of course she was special. Most of the women here are average at best. Some of them are old. There’s one woman who has been working here for at least 5 years. I call her old Hoover. She’s not that bad looking, considering she’s probably in her early 60’s. She’s so loud when she’s sucking a cock you can hear her over the music and announcements. It’s like someone is pulling plungers off a tile floor. I’ve had her work my rod before and found out her performance is more noise than anything else though. The feeling is just average. Her teeth look a little degraded, probably from taking thousands of acidic cum shots in her mouth. She’s nice enough and tries hard though. She won’t quit, even for a second, until either you shoot or the 20 minutes runs out. She was good enough for me to feed her a load anyway.
One foreigner friendly pinsaro that has hotter women is Dio in Gotanda, but it’s also a bit more expensive. Whether or not that’s worth it is for you to decide. I should also mention that Dio is set up sort of like a train station. You get your suck job right out in the open, with people coming in and out and walking right by you.
Jan Jan doesn’t have a website, so there are no pictures of the women who work here. But if you find a favorite, you can ask her for her business card. Then when you return, you can ask for her again, though you will have to pay a little extra.
If the first girl doesn’t get you off, which although uncommon did happen to me once, you can pay again and have another girl sent over. At that point it gets to be a bit expensive, but who wants to go home with blueballs?
After you blast your sticky nectar in your hostess’s orifice, she will hold it in her mouth while she cleans up your little guy with some wet rags. Then she’ll politely spit the load into another rag. She’ll then quickly go to get some warm rags to finish wiping off your staff. Pull up your pants, have a brief chat, and then she’ll walk you to the door. Nut busted, mission accomplished. No tipping of course. This is Japan, not America.
Jan Jan is nothing special, but it’s a reliable place that’s been around for a while and always happily accepted foreigners. But for around the same price, you can get a hand job or covered suck job from a much hotter girl over at New Hot Point in Shinjuku. I have to consider all the available options in a city when reviewing a place like Jan Jan. It’s all relative! With all of that in mind, I give it 2 stars. I do recommend trying the place out to see if you like it. Maybe you’ll score it higher than I did.
