Crossdress Paradise

Published on December 22nd, 2009.

As a preparation for my first trip to Japan, I decided to watch all episodes of Crossdress Paradise and its specials. Some of these guys look simply amazing and it wouldn’t surprise me if they managed to fool me, and oh what a nightmare that would be. After watching these episodes, my eyes will hopefully be able to detect these fellas when I’m in Tokyo. It’s not like I’m worried though…

It’s a lot of fun to watch, they actually get to do some cat walking at the Tokyo Girls Collection Fashion Show! In the 4th and 5th special they try to fool the members of Arashi and a few other celebrities, don’t miss that.

It’s definitely worth watching, I guarantee you’ll be surprised of how cute some of them are. I’ve embedded the first episode below, unfortunately it’s the only one available with subtitles. But I’m sure you’ll find the show amusing even without them. So just go get yourself a box of Pocky and enjoy the show! (Edit Feb 14, 2011: The video has been removed, replaced with a recap video.)

    Cross dressing is very, very, very uncommon in Japan. The only time you will see them is on TV (and I don’t think The Tunnels dressed up to try and pass off their new crappy single really counts as true cross dressing as they are entertainers), or at cross-dressing bars in Shinjuku.

    Just dont expect girls in Shinjuku ni-chōme to actually be girls all the time.

      Haha, that image is a joke^^ That’s a band called Yazima Beauty Salon which was made by DJ Ozma and the comedy duo Tunnels. They’re actually signed by Avex though :P

      Thanks for the heads-up.

    You just reminded me of the time my wife and I went to the Simon Cabaret show in Phuket, Thailand. It’s a whole show performed nightly by lady boys who’ve had the works done, including the chop-chop if you know what I mean. From what I’ve read, Thailand has more ladyboys than other Southeast Asian countries and it certainly seemed that way while we were there.

    My wife and I even saw a caucasian guy walking down the street holding a ladyboy’s hand. I wonder if he knew? Gotta keep your eyes peeled for the adam’s apple!

    Hope you don’t mind, yonasu, but in case anyone wants to see photos / video of the Thai ladyboys at Phuket: http://bit.ly/ftEpm

      Yeah, so I’ve heard. Thailand seems to be ladyboy heaven. I bet that Caucasian guy had no idea, if they’ve had surgery it can be really hard to tell. My guess would be that these guys (or girls) have had surgery on their Adam’s apple as well.

      I’d most likely be fooled by those ladyboys singing “Nobody” in that video :P

      I’m a guy and my adam’s apple doesn’t show..so that’s not really a deciding factor. In fact there are girls that have noticeable adams apple too..in the end it might just come down to the parts cause both girls and guys can even have facial hair. In fact without cross dressing or anything I’ve been confused for a girl a couple of times. Now I look like a kid with facial hair..its kinda funny really. I’ve always been relatively thin and not heavily built. I’m 167 now mostly fat..lo…anyway I saw a girl one time..at least I think it was with peach fuzz on her chin..other than that she looked like a girl..no make up even. So who knows really is my point.

    Neat mobile site! Anyhow, they may have all been ladyboys but it was a damn good show. Be sure to catch it if you ever get up that way.

    From what I know facial hair is something that is not entirely prevalent in all Asian males. I had a friend who isKorean and he wants to grow facial hair but can’t grow more than peach fuzz on his upper  lip. Its not uncommon to see smooth faced Japanese men but wow some of them really looked like girls.
