Nakasu is one of the largest (or most famous) red-light districts in Japan, located between Tenjin and Hakata. There are roughly 4000 sex-oriented shops and 30000 workers there.
The nearest station is Nakasu-kawabata subway station. A main street called "Nakasu O-dori" runs through the district from the intersection right above the subway station to the Kokutai road junction (Nakasu 1 cho-me junction). You can easily get to know if you are in Nakasu or not, thanks to thousands of brightly shining neons and crowded surroundings.
Anyway, at first, you should get a typical image of shops and price-ranges in Nakasu. Familiar shops such as "Ling Pub"(short word for lingerie pub), "Lounge", "Caba"(short word for cabaret) and "Snack" are like shown below.
|Ling Pub (Lingerie Pub)||Lounge|
|As the name shows, you can have a chat with girls wearing only lingerie (or half-naked) in a one-to-one situation. If it is over crowded, you may not have a one-to-one chat. You can drink as much as you like within the basic charge (around 6000 Yen per hour), but drinks for girls would be optional (around 1000 Yen per glass). "Oppabu" is the ordinary alias name.
||It is a kind of talking place in a luxurious atmosphere. You can keep a girl as long as you stay. Girls in the Lounge are cool and elegant, in addition, a few girls may accept English speaking. A charge is not cheap (around 10000 Yen per hour), but you will not have a boring time there. Because, these girls are very keen to learn about the news, social matters and so on.|
|A cheap styled Lounges are called "Caba" or "Caba-kura" (cabaret-club). So, you can chat gaily with girls. Differences between Lounge and Caba are the price and atmosphere. The cheapest ones charge only around 3000 Yen (per hour) in early hours, so young guys rush to the shop, then it is filled with many laughs and cheers everyday.
||The most familiar style of night girls bar in Japan is Snack. Most of shops have the "KARAOKE" machines then you can enjoy singing songs you like. (And you have to listen to the others...) Their charges are flexibly changed by the time, by the shop, by any matters.There are too much kinds of shops to describe them enough, and I can just tell you "Try!". |

A Ling pub place with a reasonable price and well-mannered girls. All girls there can not understand English well, but you can enjoy the feeling and the taste of Nakasu here.
