Japan is a land of irony and paradox. Home to crazy amounts of vending machines, bizarre inventions and themed restaurants, one can be sure that there will never be boredom in the Land of the Rising Sun.

The image of Japan as a prudish and conservative country is definitely not reflected within the vibrator bar itself.  Located in Shibuya, the bar is staffed by exclusively females and caters to a large female clientele.  Featuring a huge and wide showcase of vibrators of various designs and sizes, the bar offers a place where you can freely open up and talk about anything in general without being judged. Even our drink comes in a vibrator-shaped glass too. Sorry single guys, you have to find yourself a date to be allowed into this bar.

The Lockup
