History of Okinawa’s Red Light District

The inception of Okinawa's Red Light Districts traces back to the late 16th century during the Edo period, a time marked by clan wars that drafted many men into battles, leaving women and young children to fend for themselves. Prostitutes and Geiko, known as "Juri" and "ori," became integral figures in these districts. The aftermath of clan wars led to the establishment of a pseudo-family structure within the red light districts, comprising mothers, tails, and "chikanengwa" (children sold due to poverty). This distinctive arrangement gave rise to an autonomous city exclusively for women, an uncommon characteristic not found in other brothels. The women, facing a lack of alternative employment, contributed to the formation of a sizable red light district that endures to this day.

The red light districts endured challenges during the World Wars, and around 1990, the landscape transformed with the construction of the Okinawa Commercial Complex and the relocation of wholesalers. This period witnessed a gradual increase in establishments serving alcoholic beverages, such as cabarets and snack bars, ultimately shaping the districts into the vibrant nightlife hubs they are today.

How to Enjoy the Entertainment District, Tsuji

There are several areas in Okinawa popular as entertainment districts, but among them, Tsuji is especially famous. The area around Tsuji's soapland district is surrounded by residential neighborhoods. In the vicinity of Tsuji, you can often see many old buildings, giving off an atmosphere reminiscent of the Showa era. Along the main streets, there are pharmacies and eateries used by the residents.

Additionally, in Tsuji, there are numerous free information centers for soaplands. With a variety of soaplands lined up in Tsuji, you might find it difficult to choose which one to visit, but viewing the album photos is free. Therefore, it's a good idea to first enter a shop and check the play fees and the women working there (known as soap girls, who are employees of the soaplands).

In Tsuji, there are many soaplands in operation, offering a unique atmosphere distinct from the soapland districts in urban areas, particularly characteristic of Okinawa. Here, one can enjoy intimate encounters with women at a low cost.

In Yoshiwara, a famous soapland district in Tokyo, the general rate for services is between 30,000 to 40,000 JPY. Although not soaplands, Osaka's Tobita Shinchi is known for its "chon-no-ma" establishments, where one can have sexual encounters with women, typically costing around 12,000 JPY for 20 minutes.

The soaplands in Tsuji, as mentioned, offer services starting from a 60 minutes course, and you can have sexual encounters with women for about 15,000 JPY. Furthermore, there's a possibility of negotiating a lower price. This rate is considerably cheaper compared to Yoshiwara or Tobita Shinchi.

It can be said that Tsuji is a must-visit place when you are in Okinawa.

*"chon-no-ma" refers to small rooms in Japanese brothels or red-light districts, designed for providing short-term sexual services.
