Tokyo Lucky Hole

Nobuyoshi Araki 

Ohta Shuppan. 1990. First edition. Softcover. 271 Pages. Bound in stiff wrappers with  illustrated dust jacket. Text in Japanese. Book : VG+ with obi.

Nobuyoshi Araki was a frequent visitor to the sex clubs of Tokyo’s Shinjuku neighborhood, and he photographed them profusely until the golden age of Japan’s sex industry came to a screeching halt in February 1985, with the enactment of the New Amusement Business Control and Improvement Act. In over 800 photos, Tokyo Lucky Hole documents the free-for-all spirit of those clubs via Araki’s lens. Mentioned in the Parr and Badger reference book, The Photobook: A History vol.1 as “one of Araki's best-known and most controversial books”. Hard to find with obi.
