    I thought I'd split this off into a different thread. Continued from discussion about Raku here:

    https://tokyoadultguide.com/threads/himawari-korean-sute.5765/

    I saw Ai this last week, and can confirm most of what's been said, with a few clarifications. It's a convenient FS Korean Esute just a few minutes from Gotanda Station. My spoken Japanese isn't going to win any prizes, so relatively low levels of Japanese is required, like JLPT Level 4 or 5.

    One important note is it's a really good idea to call ahead and make an appointment. I just called from the station, which was a mistake. Apparently the afternoon I was there, it seemed like there was only one girl working, so I had about a 20 or 30 minute wait.

    Anyway, I showed up and the tencho was a mama-san (apparently the woman I talked to from the station), and she was a MILF. Not super-hot, but very hittable. She was dressed in street clothes so I quickly figured I wasn't getting service from her, but I got my hopes up because to me there's an unwritten rule that the girls are usually one order of magnitude younger and/or hotter than the mama-san.

    Unfortunately, this was not the case. Ai's pictures on the website misstate her age by at least 10 years and her waist measurements by 10 cm or more. Definitely no hourglass shape to be found.

    However, Ai was a delightful partner, very GFE, despite my crappy Japanese we had actual an actual conversation, and I got my full 65 minutes- after the post-fun shower, she offered to give me a massage, and kept checking down below to see if I was ready for a second time around, so MSOG might be possible or it might have just been a tease.

    I'd definitely recommend them for those where FS is desired but eye candy isn't a priority. I'm usually an eye candy guy, but for the price and convenience I think I'll definitely try again, and maybe ask when the skinnier girls are working (or if mamasan is available!).

    Tried again at Raku late this week- Called and made an appointment at 6pm, and I specifically asked if there were any slender girls working. I'm almost positive what the mamasan said was basically "Yeah, I have a new girl that's not on the website yet, and she's cute". So I showed up, and was given Ai again.

    So either there's only one girl working there period, or only one girl working the 'early shift', or only one girl that is willing to service foreigners. Regardless, no real plans to go back at the moment.

    Meji which would you prefer Raku or Himawari?

    Well, Raku is more convenient for me, and I've gotten FS there unlike Himawari, so if you made me pick between the two I'd probably say Raku. I would just like to find a place that's more of a happy medium between price and service, because at least from what my experience at Raku has been up to this point, it's bargain basement GFE FS.

    The way I summarise it...

    If you want to ejaculate semen into a condom while your penis is surrounded by vaginal tissue, go to Himawari.

    If you want to actually f**k a woman who appears to enjoy what you are doing to her, go to Raku.

    haha meiji perhaps you should try and hit on the mama-san like you said, that would be interesting and from the sounds of it not a bad lay?

    Yeah, what Ai lacks in looks she at least partially makes up for it with great attitude.

    jwang888> I wish. I'm guessing she's not putting out, or at least not for the standard price. I'd definitely be interested if others have been to Raku and got a different girl, though.

    Thanks for the advice meji and k1234k. Do you usually give a tip at either places?

    Other than the 'tip' of my condom-sleeved johnson? Nope! Not necessary at all.

    Just note the flirty talk- at both places, the girl will flirt around and when the moment comes, probably wants to hear you specifically say yes to the FS. Also, at the Korean places, I always let the girl mount me- that way there is no misunderstanding.

    When she is ready, she usually checks one last time- it is usually something simple like, 'mo, irretemo/haitemo ii? (is it OK for me to put it in?) or 'ireru/haireru yo' (I'm putting it in). At that, I would presume that she wants you to say yes (or nod your head like the depraved degenerate you are ;)

    Interestingly enough, at soap lands where FS is a known, regular part of service, I've noticed that the girls don't always ask before jumping on.

    I went to Raku today. Here's my report.

    First of all, let's talk about how to get there. The map on their web site was not of much help to me. I had called about an hour before I wanted to go and made an appointment. A woman answered the phone and she said fine, come on. I told her I thought I knew where it was and she told me to call if I got lost. Well, I got lost. When you go out of the west exit of Gotanda station, you have to go to the RIGHT. You'll reach a major street in about a minute's walk. You should see the Toko Hotel right in front of you. Cross the street and then go LEFT. Keep walking until you see the Excelsior Caffe coffee shop. Just past the coffee shop, turn RIGHT. There will be river to the left of you after you make the right turn. If you crossed over the river, you went too far. After you turn RIGHT, it isn't obvious that there are shops in the direction you're walking, but they're there if you walk a little ways. Keep walking until you see the BLUE SIGN with the Raku kanji on it that looks like this: 楽. Use the elevator to go the THIRD FLOOR. Press the GREEN BUTTON on the door to let them know you're there. Note: Even though I made an appointment, I realize they didn't bother to ask for my name, so I'm not entirely sure an appointment is necessary.

    So, I couldn't fine the place, and I called and spoke to the woman again. She told me to wait at the west exit of Gotanda and she came and found me. Pretty cool, huh? I should add that I speak Japanese OK and that probably helped a little because I don't think the woman spoke any English.

    Once inside, I was asked to choose a course. I picked the 85 minute course for 16,000 instead of the 65 minute course for 12,000, mostly because I felt bad for not being able to find the place and grateful that the woman came and found me. I would not recommend the 85 minute course unless you want a body scrub. Save the 4,000 yen and go with the 65 minute course.

    I was introduced to my girl, who was not Ai. Her name was Eri (エリ) and her photo shopped photo is on the web site. While she doesn't look exactly like her photo, she's actually quite attractive, very playful, and I had a good time with her (CBJ/FS). She told me she had never had an American customer before. I wouldn't call it GFE by any means. No kissing at all.

    Overall, the experience was good and I'd recommend the place. As others have noted, the walls of the "rooms" don't go up to the ceiling, so you hear what's going on around you. Eri assisted me with my shower, led me back the room, and said she would go and take a shower. As I was sitting there waiting for her, I could hear the girl in the next room moaning and groaning with another customer. It was like hearing the soundtrack of a porno playing in the next room. Interesting.

    The place got busy as I was leaving. After Eri and I finished, I still had time on the clock. Another customer came in, and the woman who had come to the station to find me called for Eri to come out. I heard the woman then introduce Eri to the customer, and the woman who had helped me came into my room and gave me more massage. Another customer entered, and she ran out to see who it was. Now, she had been in street clothes when she was giving me a massage, but when she came back, she was in her massage girl outfit (i.e., negligee). I said, you changed and she said "shigoto" (I have to work).

    I got dressed and left. As I was leaving, both the woman and Eri told me to be sure and come back. I probably will.

    Thanks for the report.

    Did the woman that came and got you have kind of a husky voice? I think that's the mama-san. Maybe she is in play after all! :) Can I ask what time of day you went? I'm wondering if during the slow times they only have certain girls working- both of the times I went were in late afternoon.

    Can you provide more of a description of Eri? Were at least her measurements somewhat accurate? Also, can I ask what time of day you went? I'm wondering if during the slow times they only have certain girls working- both of the times I went were in late afternoon.

    Interestingly, I took a look at Raku's site again today, and they keep switching out the pictures for Ai -- I think this is at least the third time they've switched them out. Definitely don't expect Ai to be the one in the pictures.

    Meiji, I started to mention that the woman who met me at the station sounded like she had a smoker's rasp to her voice so yes, that's her. She's kind of hot. I wouldn't have minded going a round with her. She looked pretty good when she changed into her working girl attire.

    I went at 5:00 in the afternoon. I think they only had 2 girls there (Eri and the one doing the moaning in the room next to mine) plus the mama-san.

    I think Eri's measurements are accurate. She has a firm body, breast enhancements, she might actually be 27 as the web site suggests, pretty face, straight teeth (!).

    Her Japanese is moderately OK as is mine, so we muddled through conversation. I didn't see any evidence that she spoke English. She asked me how to say "kawaii" in English and I told her the closest thing was probably "cute" and she had a difficult time saying "cute." It kept coming out as "kyuto" (you know how Japanese people always add to "o" sound to words that end in "t" or "d").

    I think I figured out a couple things about Raku- The girls are on a rotation of sorts. They enter Japan on tourist visas, so only can stay 90 days. Then, they have to head back to Korea, and should they wish to return, do so after a month or so.

    When I chatted with my provider, she mentioned that she was heading back to Korea for a time, and being the nosy sort of person I am, I had a look at the calendar hanging in the stall of my girl when she was in the shower room, and looked at the markings she had made in it ;)

    If you find a girl you like, you have a 3 month window.

    I think that's pretty true for most girls there (and at a lot of Korean places), but Ai told me she's been in Japan for years.

    Second visit to Raku Friday early in the evening (~6:00 pm). Mama-san gave me a friendly greeting and remembered me from last time. She was making dinner in the kitchen, so she quickly turned me over to Ai after I gave her 12000 for the 65 minute course. I was the only customer in the shop. I'm sure somebody has posted Ai's description, but I must have overlooked it. She's short and a little pudgy with a face that you probably wouldn't look twice at if you passed her on the street. Nowhere near as hot as Eri but her service is much more GFE than Eri's is. She was up for lots of different positions, 69, kissing, etc. She likes to talk (all Japanese) and kept saying things like "ecchi ga suki? Ai-chan ecchi ga daisuki." If you like the typical thin Asian girl look, you will be disappointed, but if you mind girls who are a little on the chubby side (I kind of like that look), she's a good time.

    Thanks for the reports on this I think I might have to give them a whirl. I have been wanting to venture into the FS locations but wasn't sure where to begin.

    Hey Rilo, I'm about to head out to Raku soon. Anything to add, specifically about the directions provided in a prior post- and how about the prices and the general vibe of the place? Like does the place smell like an ashtray, or is it clean smelling? How about the chicks, prices, special deals? Thanking you in advance Bro'.

    No ash tray smells. If you go at dinner time, you might smell Korean food cooking in the kitchen. I think they have four price levels. 65 min will cost 12,000. I think they have a cheaper course for 40 min (maybe 8 or 10,000, I forget). The longer courses include body scrub, so unless you want a body scrub, stick with one of the two shorter courses.

    Roboto-

    It didn't have a smoke smell at all. The directions are actually really easy..Once you exit the station and walk to the intersection where the hotel is cross street and go left..you can see the river and the intersection where you will turn right. You really don't walk far at all and then you are there. Like the other posters said the Blue Kanji sign was out front marking the location.

    I can't recall the name of the lady but she was a little on the thick (not fat) side and medium sized breasts. I went with the 120000Y 65 minute and it was a really good time. I am not sure if the 40 minute is FS or not but I really didn't need the full 65 minutes and if the FS is GTG on the 10000Y course I would take it next time for sure.

    The girl was eager and ready to roll once we got out of the shower, I don't speak much Japanese like almost none and she said some stuff in Japanese but kept touching my junk and I knew she was basically asking me if it was good to go. I gave the green light and she rolled me over, rolled on a condom and then straddled me. We did a few different positions and then finished with a decent massage and a shower. I am looking forward to going again soon. I can say I think I was the only one in the shop it was around 3:30-4:00 when I went on a weekday.

    Haha, still haven't been back to Raku yet. I was actually in Gotanda tonight and thought about stopping in. Hopefully soon.

    Good day gentlemen.

    Made to the plan and stopped by Raku yesterday about 2:30 PM. No problem with finding the place and is easily accessible. As for Mama-san wish she was available too. Place has a very friendly atmosphere.

    Of course with all the other threads above Ai was the one available no other girl seemed to be there. Ai is very GFE. Seems others above only went for the short course, but tried the long course. Services started out with the scrub on the back, moved to the front, then to a body soaping and short massage, then a soap scrub with a hair washing. Shampoo was minty and felt cool. Nice. Ai had me finished up with brushing my teeth. Then moved onto a decent massage. She gives a decent deep massage as what I needed. She doesn’t speak English as I kept trying. So I continued with Japanese as much as I could on my level as she likes to talk in Japanese. After massaging she spoke quietly saying she will take a short shower be right back. Came back and boy her hands can give you goose bumps as she lightly touched me all over. She loves to DFK and sucks on the tongue as well which made the action to heat up. Ai is quite responsive to positions and seems to like and enjoy the DATY. She is ticklish in some places as I found out using my tongue and kept trying until she couldn't stand it anymore. CBJ was very good and too quick and I guess it was that I was too roused at the time. Finished up with a short shower and hoping for a little more action, just a little though. We moved back to the room for some chit chat. Found out her Korean name is what I understood to be pronounced Sora, Japanese meaning Hana (Flower). Before leaving gave her a box of chocolates though some of you may not give small gifts, but it goes a long way when you return for services is what I found out.

    Raku does have a rewards program. After 4 visits you can get 1000 yen off and with 8 visits 2000 yen off. What is also nice about the place is does not have the smoking ash tray smell as a lot of the other place I have been to. I will return to see next time if I am offered a different girl. IMHO this has been one of the better places with this type service.
