Are you interested in even more niche places than Tobita Shinchi or Imazato Shinchi? Welcome to our complete guide to Takii Shinchi, the smaller yet deeply popular district within the Five Great Shinchi. Here you can learn about the new shinchi that only continues to grow!

What is Takii Shinchi

Takii Shinchi, the smallest among the Five Great Shinchi districts, is located in Takii Town, Moriguchi City, Osaka Prefecture, offering a distinct experience away from the city center. The closest station to this district is Takii station.

Takii Shinchi, despite its association with the red-light district, operates as a ryotei restaurant rather than a traditional sex establishment. This unique concept follows the premise that a guest enters the establishment, forms a connection with the woman serving them, and engages in intimate encounters, all under the concept of a "free love affair." It's important to note that this approach considers these interactions as personal expressions of freedom, similar to consensual relationships between lovers, and does not constitute a criminal activity.

Cautionary Tips for Foreigners Exploring Adult Shops in Japan

Keep in mind that certain establishments might decline service to foreign customers.
It's advisable to accompany a native Japanese friend who can introduce you to different shops or negotiate on your behalf, ensuring the staff feels assured about your understanding of the rules.
In some instances, even as a foreigner, proficiency in Japanese may lead to acceptance by the staff for their services. Demonstrating efforts to learn the language and speaking a bit of Japanese can enhance your chances of being accepted.

Operating Procedures in Takii Shinchi

As you explore the area, you'll find yourself frequently approached by the friendly "obachan" (older ladies) who invite you with enthusiasm, offering insights like, "Come here, come here! We have a special girl just for today." There's no obligation to decide on a specific store when you're invited, so feel free to explore your options.

Upon leaving one restaurant, ladies from nearby stores who are equally eager to welcome you, will warmly greet you. This makes it easy to examine multiple stores within 10 to 15 minutes due to the relatively small size of Takii Shinchi. The process differs from Tobita Shinchi. Here, the girls are not visible before visiting and their appearance remains a mystery until you enter the establishments.

STEP 1: Select a Store

Begin by selecting one of the available stores within the district. Deciding your favorite may initially seem challenging, but a simple "Yeah!" will help you make your selection. Remember that lingering indecisively may limit your opportunities for a closer look, so don't hesitate to make your choice and enjoy your experience.

STEP 2: Negotiating

After selecting your desired girl at Takii Shinchi, the next step is to communicate the duration of your intended engagement. Engage with the manager, often referred to as "Obachan" or “Old Lady,” to discuss the duration of your intended visit and services. While many customers opt for the 30 minute 14,000 JPY course, if you desire a more extended experience, you can choose the longer option.

STEP 3: Head to "Chon-no-Ma"

In Takii Shinchi, the designated area for sexual activities is referred to as Chon-no-Ma (ちょんの間). This translates to "a room for brief sexual encounters," where intimate engagements typically last around 30 minutes.

Chon-no-Ma comprises a straightforward Japanese-style room. It is a simple tatami mat room with a table and futon laid out with a suspicious pink light setting the mood for the act. Additionally, hygiene is upheld as a priority, with careful disinfection of participants' private areas using alcohol wipes or if the restaurant is equipped with showers, you will be asked to take a shower.

STEP 4: Refreshments

The ryotei restaurant concept is upheld, drinks are readily available for your enjoyment. You have the option to order from a selection of drinks. If you wish, you can request the girl to bring you a drink. However, it's important to note that time is counted from the moment you ascend to the ryotei, so there's no need for prolonged conversation. Should you choose a beverage, you will be responsible for the associated charges.

STEP 5: Commence the Activities

Begin the agreed-upon activities, often referred to as NN/NS, in a comfortable and private setting.

Glossary of Terms
