Hide your stuffed toys: G-suS has a lighter! In this side-splitting, rip-roaring new video I visit Bar Zin — a Visual Kei bar in Shinjuku — with my spookiest friends (Yukiro, Count de Sang, G-suS, Mistress Maya, Heidi).

Visual Kei bands often head to Bar Zin for a drink after playing a live. Dir en Grey and X Japan left memorabilia on the walls next to skulls, a devil mask, bondage goods, a giant axe, and stuffed Jack Skellington and Sally dolls.

As you may have predicted, we drank “sludgy” French absinthe. Bar Zin is open until 5am, with no table charge, and has special cocktails named Fetish Girl and Lady Camellia. I dare say it’s one of my favorite drinking holes in Tokyo. (For the address and info, check out the website.)

To top it off, you can request songs and watch music videos of your favorite J-rock artists. We requested Malice Mizer’s Bel Air… which led to vigorous Gackt dancing, evil commentary and scandalous behaviors! Naughty, naughty.

This is one of my favorite videos to date — so please watch it above and here! Be kind and subscribe to my channel, as we have more on the way…

Did any parts of the video make you laugh out loud? Where do you and your friends go — and what do you do — for fun?

Japanese Word of the Day: Kokan (股間) = Crotch
Song of the Day: Malice Mizer – Bel Air (the song we requested in the new video.)

    Considering foreigners only make up around 2% of the Japanese population, it always weirds me out when there are more foreigners than Japanese in a club/bar.

    awww
    the video is great!

    I was just in the Bar Gellonimo, longer in buis’, much smaller, but there were MANY bands before, how was it “From artists for artists” and the normal can join too…
    But this one looks pretty cool too, at least it has a bit more space and the vid…alone for the ones in it I have to ♥ it!
