    Hey guys,

    I was walking around Shibuya this weekend and I could not help notice a Soapland right behind a big Koban (police box) towards the Tokyo Hands Dep't Store. It's on a triangle part of the intersection. Is that place Gaijin friendly and what's up with it being right behind the police station?

    It makes it easier for their customers to find them, maybe? Soap lands aren't illegal per se...though it is rumored that illegal things sometimes happen in soaplands. :D

    The basement of Crystal is Strawberry Jam, a very friendly place for Gaijin, I believe.

    That would be Kadoebi. They're a legal and licensed establishment, so no reason for them not to be next to a koban.

    They are off and on with foreigner friendliness, more off than on lately.

    Crystal seems to be right upstairs from Strawberry Jam, indeed.

    But where is Kadoebi's Shibuya establishment? Their website seems a bit cryptic concerning locations, but is it this place? They seem to be quite a big chain.

    That's the one - the big red and white sign above says "KADOEBI" - lit. "corner shrimp".

    Map for each shop in their chain is on the "system" page for that shop: http://shibuya.kadoebi.co.jp/system/

    This isn't a review, so I moved it to Q&A.

    Before Kadoebi took over management, that place behind the koban used to be very gaijin friendly and provided the same service as NYNY/Champs in Ueno. We're talking over 20 years ago now. That was when センター街had a couple of very decent BJ parlors. Oh the memories.
