Araki. Tokyo Lucky Hole


Pleasure parlors

Araki's tour of an erotic underworld

It started in 1978 with an ordinary coffee shop near Kyoto. Word spread that the waitresses wore no panties under their miniskirts. Similar establishments popped up across the country. Men waited in line outside to pay three times the usual coffee price just to be served by a panty-free young woman.

Within a few years, a new craze took hold: the no-panties “massage” parlor. Increasingly bizarre services followed, from fondling clients through holes in coffins to commuter-train fetishists. One particularly popular destination was a Tokyo club called “Lucky Hole” where clients stood on one side of a plywood partition, a hostess on the other. In between them was a hole big enough for a certain part of the male anatomy.

Taking the Lucky Hole as his title, Nobuyoshi Araki captures Japan's sex industry in full flower, documenting in more than 800 photos the pleasure-seekers and providers of Tokyo’s Shinjuku neighborhood before the February 1985 New Amusement Business Control and Improvement Act put a stop to many of the country's sex locales. Through mirrored walls, bed sheets, the bondage and the orgies, this is the last word on an age of bacchanalia, infused with moments of humor, precise poetry, and questioning interjections.
Il fotografo

Nobuyoshi Araki was born in Tokyo in 1940. Given a camera by his father at the ripe age of twelve, Araki has been taking pictures ever since. He studied photography and film at Chiba University and went into commercial photography soon after graduating. In 1970 he created his famous Xeroxed Photo Albums, which he produced in limited editions and sent to friends, art critics, and people selected randomly from the telephone book. Over the years, his bold, unabashed photographs of his private life have been the object of a great deal of controversy and censorship (especially in his native Japan), a fact that has not fazed the artist nor diminished his influence. To date, Araki has published over 400 books of his work.

Fascinating photographer and a dude of Tokyo I never saw while I worked there

The book is a provocative look into Japanese night life and NSFW photos.

Difficile da descrivere con poche parole.

MaY,6 novembre 2021
Si potrebbe provare, ma si rischierebbe una descrizione inaccurata o incompleta, oppure superficiale. Oltrechè soggettiva. Da vedere e valutare personalmente.

Behind closed doors

Ivan,4 novembre 2021
This is a book that I liked slightly less than most of the books I have read from Bibliotheca Universalis, however, still one that I would recommend due to it being a good historical document and of good quality. Araki is one of the biggest Japanese photographers and this book will be enjoyed very much by fans of Moriyama and Tomatsu.

So war's

Lese viele Bücher über Japan und war auch mehrfach im Land unterwegs. Diese Zeit habe ich altersmäßig verpasst. Davon aber gelesen und mir deshalb das Buch bestellt. Damit habe ich mir bildlich eine gute Vorstellung von der damaligen Zeit machen können. EMPFEHLENSWERT!!!!!!!!!
