One thought on “Bear Guide: Tokyo Bear Bars

  • Great choices, but also don’t miss out on ShiroKuma -THE bear bar, right around the corner from Leo Lounge (, as well as Norakura which specializes in fundoshi and attracts a very bearish crowd (; and not forget the Debudasu (young chubby) night at Dusokoi Club ( For the more leather S&M bears there are many options, just Google for leather bars, though you will always get a mixed crowd… and walk around and open all bar doors in the San-Chome Shinkuju… you never know what you will find!!! Super fun! 🙂
