Tokyo sex shops: 5 to try

Tokyo loves to present a polite, oh-so-civilised face to the world, but there's all kinds of kinky stuff going on behind closed doors. If you're struggling to imagine your neighbors so much as sharing a tonguey kiss, a trip around any of the shops listed below may give you cause to see them in a very different light indeed...

For the ultimate sexy stroll, a wander around the Dogenzaka area of Shibuya is hard to beat, and at least two of the Tokyo sex shops listed here are in that area (a couple of doors apart, in fact). The area is well known as being home to 'Love Hotel Hill', and at night it's one of the world's great red light districts (the other being Kabukicho, of course). Explore it during the daytime, however, and it's so nondescript it could be just about anywhere. That's when you can grab your chance to peruse these bawdy boutiques in relative privacy.

M's | Your seven-floor sex department store
Whips, ball-gags, 747-powered dildos and corkscrew butt plugs sit side by side with schoolgirl uniforms and lingerie of a classier kind. If it's part of your wildest fantasy, chances are that M's has it in stock. Read more

Wild One | Hardcore toys for sex tourists
If it's a dildo with teeth you've been looking for, your search is over. This Dogenzaka adult shop has everything the rabid mind could ever hope for, and it's all neatly labelled in English, too. How kind. Read more

C'est Bien | S&M heaven for leather lovers
It's housed its very own basement dungeon, and it has a phallus the size of a wrestler's arm as its centrepiece. More dog collars, leather thongs, corset bras and studded whips than you could, er, shake a whip at. Read more

Kyoei | Lingerie for the kinky couple
Is it odd to call a kinky lingerie shop 'sweet'? Maybe, but that's about the best description we can come up with for this cute little backstreet shop in Gotanda. You'd have to be a prude to be offended. Read more

Condomania | Novelty sex toys for innocents
A veritable institution, Condomania has two Tokyo locations, both selling fairly innocent sex items to the amateur sexplorer. If you're looking for a Christmas stocking filler, you've come to the right place. Read more
