A Comprehensive Guide to SEKU KYABA in Japan: Exploring Services, Prices, and More

March 26, 2024


Are you curious about the unique adult entertainment culture in Japan? Look no further! In this article, we will delve into the world of SEKU KYABA, also known as Sexy Kyabakura. From the services offered to the prices and locations, we'll cover everything you need to know about this intriguing concept. So, let's get started!


SEKU KYABA, short for Sexy Kyabakura, is a type of establishment in Japan that offers a distinct form of entertainment. While traditional "kyabakura" clubs, hostess clubs, and high-class establishments strictly prohibit touching the girls, SEKU KYABA establishments typically allow limited physical contact with the upper body.

It's important to note that the rules and services may vary depending on the specific bar and its location. To avoid any confusion, it is recommended to inquire about the establishment's policies before entering.

Past Experiences and Varying Services

To give you a glimpse into the diverse nature of SEKU KYABA establishments, let me share a few personal experiences:

  1. On one occasion, I mistakenly assumed that I could freely touch and kiss the girl throughout the entire duration of my visit. However, I quickly learned that touching was only permitted during designated "sexy time" moments.
  2. During my first visit to a bar in a rural area, the show started with an energetic song, which made me believe it was the appropriate time for physical interaction. However, I was promptly informed that touching was not allowed during the showtime.
  3. Before entering another bar, a male staff member informed me that I could touch a woman over her underwear. With this information in mind, I attempted to touch the girl's buttocks, only to be warned that only the upper body was allowed to be touched.
  4. I encountered a situation where a girl was dressed in provocative, see-through lingerie, but to my surprise, touching or kissing was strictly prohibited in that particular establishment.

As you can see, the rules and regulations can vary significantly between SEKU KYABA bars. It's crucial to be aware of the specific policies before engaging in any interactions. In addition, SEKU KYABA establishments go by various names, which can add to the confusion.

Here are some alternative names for SEKU KYABA:

  • Boobs Pub
  • Touch-Pub
  • Sexy Pub
  • Hustle Pub
  • Hustle Lounge
  • Touch Lounge
  • Bikini Pub
  • Lingerie Pub
  • Two-shot KYABAKURA
  • Top-less Lounge
  • Top-less KYABAKURA

All of the above terms refer to SEKU KYABA.

Understanding the Service Content of SEKU KYABA

As mentioned earlier, SEKU KYABA bars offer a range of services, which can vary from "super soft" to "super hard." To provide a clearer picture, let's categorize the services into different levels:

Level 1 (Super Soft Service)

  • Kissing a girl (Not allowed)
  • Touching a girl's upper body (Not allowed)
  • Touching a girl's lower body (Not allowed)

This level of service is commonly found in lingerie pubs and bikini pubs. The services are similar to traditional KYABAKURA establishments, but with the addition of sexy costumes.

Level 2 (Soft Service)

  • Kissing a girl (Not allowed)
  • Touching a girl's upper body (Limited to over the clothes)
  • Touching a girl's lower body (Not allowed)

This level of service is prevalent in cosplay bars, such as Sailor Suit and Maid-themed establishments.

Level 3 (Standard Service)

  • Kissing a girl (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's upper body (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's lower body (Not allowed)

This is the most common service provided in SEKU KYABA bars.

Level 4 (A Little Hard Service)

  • Deep kissing with a girl (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's upper body (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's lower body (Limited to over the underwear)

In some bars, you may even find opportunities to lick and suck on a girl's breasts.

Level 5 (Hard Service)

  • Deep kissing with a girl (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's upper body (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's lower body (Allowed, including intimate contact)

At this level, the experience becomes more akin to a "knocking shop."

Level 6 (Super Hard Service)

  • Women are always topless
  • Deep kissing with a girl (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's upper body (Allowed)
  • Touching a girl's lower body (Allowed, including intimate contact)
  • The girl will perform nipple-licking
  • Additional fee for a separate room with a blowjob service and the option to ejaculate

Now that you have an idea of the different levels of service, it's important to note that downtime is a period during the visit when the services become temporarily extreme. This downtime occurs once or twice during a set and lasts approximately 10 minutes. While you are drinking and engaging in regular conversation, physical contact such as kissing, touching, and even nipple-sucking may be permitted during this dedicated downtime.

Another aspect to consider is the number of times the girls serving you change during your visit as a free customer (without nomination). This is known as "two or three turns," a system implemented to introduce various girls to customers, allowing them to find a preferred companion. Typically, the girls change every 20 minutes. However, once you nominate a girl, she becomes your main companion, and the rotation no longer occurs every 20 minutes.

Pricing Structure of SEKU KYABA

Let's now explore the pricing structure of SEKU KYABA establishments. Generally, the price is influenced by the level of service, and it's worth mentioning that entering a bar for the first time often comes with a newcomer-only discount.

Depending on the bar, you can either choose this option and a girl upon entry, or select a girl during your time at the bar and then add the VIP ROOM option for a more private experience.

5. Drink & Food

In most cases, SEKU KYABA bars include an "all-you-can-drink" option in the basic price, eliminating the need for additional drink charges. The all-you-can-drink menu often includes beer, shochu, brandy, whiskey, and soft drinks. Some bars may offer the option to add soda for an extra charge of 1,000 to 2,000 yen.

6. Accompaniment Fee

Accompaniment fees can vary depending on the bar. Here are a few patterns commonly observed:

  • Pattern 1: If you accompany a girl, an additional 2,000 to 10,000 yen will be added to the set price.
  • Pattern 2: Accompanying a girl may extend the duration of the set from the standard 60 minutes to 80 minutes, with the set price increased by 1.5 times.
  • Pattern 3: Accompanying a girl may result in doubling the set price.

7. SC & TAX

SC stands for service charge, and TAX represents the sales tax. Some bars combine SC and TAX into a single charge, often ranging from 0-30%. In cases where SC and TAX are separate, SC is typically around 10-30%, while TAX ranges from 0-10%.

8. Credit Card Commission Fee

When using a credit card for payment, a commission fee is often applied, typically around 10% on top of the total bill.

Business Hours of SEKU KYABA

SEKU KYABA bars have varying opening hours, with some establishments opening as early as 7 AM and others staying open until 1 AM the next day. However, most bars typically begin operating from 6 PM or 7 PM.

The Appeal of SEKU KYABA

From my perspective, the primary appeal of SEKU KYABA can be summarized in one word: "tits"! People visit these establishments to admire and appreciate the beauty of female breasts. It's truly an experience like no other, with multiple girls showcasing their assets simultaneously. Picture approximately 20 pairs of breasts swaying to the music—it's an awe-inspiring sight!

Additionally, the price plays a significant role in the appeal of SEKU KYABA. When I go out for drinks, I often find myself stopping by these bars. I usually have dinner beforehand, and upon arrival, I indulge in several beers from the all-you-can-drink menu. In just 30 minutes, I can enjoy four or five refreshing beers.

Once the showtime begins, I witness the sight of all the girls standing on the box seats, their breasts captivating the audience. It's an experience exclusive to SEKU KYABA establishments, and the affordable price of all-you-can-drink draft beer makes it even more enticing.

In summary, the appeal of SEKU KYABA lies in the opportunity to admire numerous breasts simultaneously and the affordability of the all-you-can-drink option. It's a unique form of entertainment that caters to those who appreciate such experiences.

How to Experience SEKU KYABA (For Beginners)

For those new to the SEKU KYABA scene, here's a step-by-step guide:

1. Set a Budget

Start by setting a budget for your SEKU KYABA visit. Decide on the maximum amount you're willing to spend, and make sure to stick to it.

2. Find a Bar within Your Budget

Search for a SEKU KYABA bar that fits your budget. There are multiple ways to discover suitable options, such as visiting free information centers in entertainment districts, browsing websites, or reading online reviews. Enjoy the process of finding a bar that piques your interest.

3. Visit the SEKU KYABA Bar

Once you've selected a SEKU KYABA bar, it's time to go! While making a reservation is advisable for larger groups, it's not always necessary for individuals or small parties.

Upon arrival, you'll be asked if you want to choose a specific girl. If you do, simply provide the girl's name and make your selection. If not, clearly inform the staff that you don't have a preference.

You may also be asked about your drink preferences. If the bar offers an all-you-can-drink menu, feel free to order your favorite beverages from the selection.

4. Payment

After paying the required fee, enter the bar and take your assigned seat. The drinks you ordered at the entrance will be brought to your table.

5. Enjoy the Service

Once you start drinking, a girl will approach you, and you can engage in friendly conversation. Depending on the bar's policy, you may be able to engage in physical contact, such as kissing or touching, during designated downtime periods. If the bar doesn't have downtime, conversation without physical contact is typically expected.

After approximately 20 minutes, the girls may rotate, and a new girl will take her place. This rotation continues throughout the duration of your set if you haven't nominated a specific girl. If you find that you're not particularly interested in a girl, it's best to leave the bar after one set.

When the set is about to end, downtime begins. During this period, you're allowed to engage in kissing, breast touching, and other intimate activities. The girl may ask for an extension once downtime concludes. If you're not inclined to extend, you can leave after one set.

6. Departure

As your SEKU KYABA experience comes to a close, express gratitude to the girl and bid farewell.

We hope this guide has provided you with valuable information.


How was your journey through the world of SEKU KYABA? Did you find it intriguing?

Lastly, I'd like to offer some advice for those interested in taking a girl home or going out on a date with a SEKU KYABA girl. SEKU KYABA girls often face financial hardships, and there are more single mothers working in SEKU KYABA establishments compared to KYABAKURA. Taking a girl home from a SEKU KYABA bar may be easier than from a KYABAKURA establishment.

In conclusion, I believe that SEKU KYABA girls crave affection more deeply. To successfully connect with them, it's crucial to be attentive and compassionate. By seeing them as individuals rather than just girls working in SEKU KYABA, you can establish a genuine connection. If you happen to fall in love with a girl from a KYABAKURA or SEKU KYABA establishment, give it your all! Good luck!
