Sex late night chats
Whether their night was a success (drinking with their friends) or a feat of endurance (watching the clock until the boss stops drowning them in shochu and forcing them to listen to rude jokes), the transition to last train usually has people in a good mood.In the smoking area near the Kabukicho exit of Shinjuku station, near 109 and the scramble crossing in Shibuya, and outside the East and West exits of Ikebukuro station, you’ll see the nanpa-shi (pickup guys), standing guard with their standardized uniform – gelled hair, man purse, loafers, and phone in hand – eyeing women from their sentry posts along the main pedestrian thoroughfares.Okay, so it might be a little more than an hour but the idea is the same.The cities (especially Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Roppongi, and other major stations) are bright and loud with the sound of laughter and lively conversation as people are emptying into the streets from finished nomikais (drinking parties), dinner dates, social obligations, and some unlucky overtime shifts.If you end up talking to one for a while, you want to determine what her/his plans are for the night.
For lots of girls, bonding and communicating with a guy leaves us with the same afterglow and peace that having sex does for a guy. Every time I look at my phone, I get excited thinking about his voice.
The trains inbound from the outskirts of Tokyo, by comparison, are far more peaceful – empty, even.
I can’t say I haven’t taken a brief nap on the overhead luggage rack of an inbound last train to Roppongi before – guilty as charged.
In Shinjuku, these areas are right outside the Kabukicho exit, in front of Alta (with the large TV monitor overhead) next to the fruit shop, and outside the west exit.
In Ikebukuro the West and East exit are both good, although the East exit is more younger “normal” crowds, and the West exit tends to be more salarymen and red light crowds (including workers heading to and from their shifts, if that’s your thing).
