Ueno Gets a New & Elegant Crossdressing Bar

Bars LGBT Tokyo Osaka Shinjuku Ueno

While Bar☆Onna no Ko Club isn’t the first crossdressing bar in Japan, it might be the most luxurious yet. Set to open its doors on April 1, 2016 in Ueno, Tokyo, it’s the third establishment by Onna no Ko Club, the same company that previously set up crossdressing bars in Shinjuku and Osaka.

Much like their other locations, this new bar will be open to crossdressers, trans women and men, and guests of any gender. Decorated in pink with chandeliers and counter-style seating for up to 15 people, it promises to be a fun, girly space where people can easily drink, talk, make new friends, and dress up if they choose to.

In fact, the bar practically encourages you to do so with its full dress-up salon, along with crossdressing and transgender staff who are more than willing to help you achieve the perfect, feminine make-over.

With more crossdressing events and spaces like Bar☆Onna no Ko Club popping up in recent years, Japan is slowly beginning to view crossdressing in a more positive light, as well as address other related LGBT issues, such as slowly increasing acceptance of gay marriage.
