Alamas Cafe is a friendly bar and restaurant in Shinjuku Ni-chome. Like many gay bars in Japan, they keep copies of the latest gay magazines on the counter for customers to peruse, including Badi and G-men.

The day before I left Tokyo, I had a couple drinks at Alamas while checking out the latest manga by Senkan Komomo (戦艦コモモ), Kumada Poohsuke (熊田プウ助) and Hiko (ヒコ) in G-men, and the new chapter of Slave Training Summer Camp by Gengoroh Tagame (田亀源五郎) in Badi.
