While there are many gay and lesbian establishments in Tokyo (concentrated mostly in Shinjuku's Ni-chome district), the gay community in Japan is not a vocal one, and in any case, local information in English is hard to come by. A useful website for gay club listings is www.utopia-asia.com/tipsjapn.htm, where you can also order the Utopia Guide to Japan, which covers the gay and lesbian scene in 27 cities in Japan.
