Kyōto (京都) [1] was the capital of Japan for over a millennium, and carries a reputation as its most beautiful city. However, visitors may be surprised by how much work they will have to do to see Kyoto's beautiful side. Most first impressions of the city will be of the urban sprawl of central Kyoto, around the ultra-modern glass-and-steel train station, which is itself an example of a city steeped in tradition colliding with the modern world.

Sex and Prostitution in Kyoto

Prostitution in Japan has existed throughout the country's history. While the Anti-Prostitution Law of 1956 states that "No person may either do prostitution or become the customer of it," loopholes, liberal interpretations of the law, and loose enforcement have allowed the sex industry to prosper and earn an estimated 2.3 trillion yen (US$24 billion) a year, which accounts for 0.4 to 0.5% of the nation's GDP.

Legal status

Article 3 of the Anti-Prostitution Law (売春防止法 Baishun Bōshi Hō) of 1956 states that "No person may either do prostitution or become the customer of it," but no judicial penalty is defined for this act. Instead, the following are prohibited on pain of penalty: soliciting for purposes of prostitution, procuring a person for prostitution, coercing a person into prostitution, receiving compensation from the prostitution of others, inducing a person to be a prostitute by paying an "advance," concluding a contract for making a person a prostitute, furnishing a place for prostitution, engaging in the business of making a person a prostitute, and the furnishing of funds for prostitution.

The definition of prostitution is strictly limited to coitus. This means sale of numerous acts such as oral sex, anal sex, mammary intercourse and other non-coital sex acts are legal. The Businesses Affecting Public Morals Regulation Law of 1948 (風俗営業取締法 Fūzoku Eigyō Torishimari Hō), amended in 1985 and 1999, regulates these businesses.

Red Light Districts

Red-light areas in Kyoto:

  • Kiyamachi which runs parallel and adjacent to Pontocho, is an actual street with one-way traffic and weeping cherries that droop gracefully over the Takase River: an old canal that was used to carry goods from Kyoto to Osaka. Along with Shirakawa Dori, in Gion, Kiyamachi is one of the few streets in Kyoto that could be called beautiful. Fashion health spas and soaplands, pink salons and all-you-can-cum-in-thirty-minutes blow-job factories have spilled out of the narrow alleys that run between Kiyamachi and Kawaramachi Street - and have taken over many of what used to be bars and restaurants on Kiyamachi itself. The crowd on the street is predominantly male and, at night, drunk.
  • Pontocho is narrow and lovely street, too small for automobile traffic and filled with tea houses and bars and restaurants that back onto the Kamo River.

You may also find several fancy restaurants located in and around the red light districts of Kyoto. These red light districts tend to become more active during the early evening and after its dark. So, you can visit the places, preferably during these times of the day in order to experience adult activities and other related offerings that are in store for the potential clients.

Prostitutes and Sex Workers

Mostly sex with hookers there is good and you'll get what you payed for.
