Sauna-ing in Shinjuku
This popular sauna in Ni-Chome has three locations, including Ueno and Asukasa. This Shinjuku location is in the center of gay nightlife in Tokyo. This is a foreigner-friendly place and many come to spend the night.

      Cleanest way to get dirty in Tokyo.
      Cleanest way to get dirty in Tokyo... Take your shoes off as you enter, before putting theme in the locker. Take your key to the desk after paying at the vending machine. Hand your key over and you'll be given a corresponding key for your locker, along with towels and a robe. Then you're good to go.

      Great place and easy to find, once I found Shinjuku ni-chome...I did some research before trying to find a gay sauna, knowing that Japanese establishments don't always cater to "Gaijin". But it was friendly from reception to check out I had a great time and am looking forward to returning during a longer stay in Tokyo...

      hot fun after partying
      Had a couple of awesome nights in the place. It's large, with plenty of places to have fun. Mostly local guys, with some tourists. Great place to crash if your hotel is not close by. That's what a lot of the local guys seem to do, but then there's plenty of moaning and groaning going on under the bunk beds :). Def worth a visit if your feeling frisky in Tokyo.

      Went there after a long hot summer shopping in shibuya. Decided to go there to see the local hospitality. What amazing place 5 levels start with the locker room with hundreds of lockers then strip off wear your towel of your kimon if you decide to chill out first before your sauna or cruising. Well next level up is your sauna level where you have your traditional Japanese bath with 2 deep whirlpool then pass the plastic curtain to the stand up cubicles with glory holes( wow good experience there ; ) ) then 2 steam room, 1 dark dry sauna fit for two or 1 big dry sauna. On the same level there is a tanning bed. The next level is so interesting. There are 3 rooms which adjoining to each other very dark and filled with rows of bunk bed and single beds. You'll hear people moaning or people snoring after they had sex I suppose. Overall great place. Make sure you go there during working hours or after work hours up to 11 pm. As passed midnight the place turn into accommodation where all the drunk men couldn't get back to their home and stay there because the public transpiration on Tokyo shut down at 12 midnight except if you are prepared to pay the expensive taxi fare.

      Great place to go. Never tried any other gay saunas in Tokyo. There are quite a few - gay saunas and crusing spots. The problem is, that some gay saunas/cruising spots deny entry to foreigners/non-asians/non-japanese or non-japanese speaking people. This one (24 Kaikan) definately welcomes foreigners. The location (in the middle of the gay district) is great, so you can always stop by after or during a night out. With JPY 2600 (USD 28) I find it is a bit on the expensive side, but you won't really find much cheaper places that offer the same variety of facilities. Steam, sauna, different pools (~20°C, ~35°C and 40+°C), shower cabins with glory holes, sling room, another (not so hot) sauna (but for hot action)... tanning... Plus another 3 floors on top of that for group beds (where people usually don't sleep... but rather shag). private rooms. another video room upstairs. On the first floor (below the sauna/pool floor) there are the lockers, TV room and a bar, where you can order food and/or drinks. The crowd is mainly Japanese, but there are quite a few foreigners, too. The thing with Japanese is that they are usually quite shy. So it almost never happened to me that someone came up to me to talk and.. more ;) As I am quite shy, too, I rarely do the first step. In dark places then, Japanese do start grabbing/touching, etc. Usually happens in the steam or mist room. Or in the glory hole showers. Definately a lot of action going on there. Went there on several occasions... friday, saturday, sunday nights. Of course saturday night is the most packed, I guess I prefer friday night, still packed, but not too packed. You pay JPY 2600 for 13 hrs. I give it 4 stars just because Japanese people are a bit shy and getting some action takes a bit more time than in the western hemisphere (aka North America and Europe).
