Well the good eh?
-Beautiful Japanese women
-No download limit
-Easy to download galleries and videos
-If you are a collector type of person like my wife and I, then be very disappointed. I mean very, very disappointed or pissed, whichever one you fancy. The gifts or presents on the site for loyal customers is ONLY open to people IN Japan. No one else. My wife was crushed....
-Pictures are rather small in size. Kind of odd for a site that relies on galleries to draw in customers.
-Point system kind of ruins the site as you are limited to only a handful of items to browse through, need about 6 months in for a stage 1 pass (half way access) and 16 months for a stage 2 (true full access). Neat idea, but should be used for something much more engaging.
-Customer service is slow and they try to avoid answering questions. Example: I sent 2 emails about the present system and both times they told Japan only, I wanted to know why they could not be sent outside Japan (If they said something about shipping or being unlawful I would have been fine). Wife tried 3 times and got the same.
I would recommend it for those who love Japanese women. My wife says no as in her words; "Too little for too much time and money"
Your choice mate
Any questions, ask away as we'll still hang around this site till we reach stage one to see if anything new pops up.

-The models are for the most part, stunning.
A few of the models, like Rio Fujisaki, and Kasumi Risa can also be found on various hardcore sites, but most of the models, I haven't seen elsewhere.
-Picture and video quality is very good. Not super high resolution, but clear and crisp. (video 1280x720 and pictures 1280x852)
-Photo sets can be downloaded as a zip file, although they tend to be small sets, with only 15-25 photos in each.
-updates come regularly, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, usually with 2 photo sets and 1 video.
-Price is OK. Not a bargain, at ￥1,980 (about US$24), but not over the top either.
-Cancelling membership was no problem, just took a couple of mouse clicks. I see a couple of previous comments here about having problems with cancelling, so I assume that the website has since changed things to make it easier on that front.
Unfortunately there is quite a substantial list.
-Navigation is shocking, with no search feature. You basically have to go methodically through each section to find what you like.
-No model index. Models will have content scattered about the site in little groups, with nothing linking them.
-There is a points system where a certain amount of content is available straight away, then more if you stay 6 months, and more again,(but only photos, from what I can make out), after 1 year.
-When you cancel, you are cut off immediately, so you will need to remember exactly when to cancel.
-No streaming videos, and can only be downloaded in one size and format. (WMV's of about 150mb, for a 5 minutes long video)
Personally, I would love to be able to give this website a much higher score. It was like a breath of fresh air after too many sites that all start to look the same. I love the high quality softcore, (and it is definitely no more than softcore)videos. I don't really do photos myself, but the ones I looked at looked like similar quality.
It's not a huge site, but I'd take quality over quantity any day. New content trickles in at a steady pace.
I hate the idea of a points system, but having said that, I have done something that I usually never do. After my initial one month, I actually have joined up again with the intention of staying 6 months so I can get the next lot of content. There is no way I will be sticking it out for 1 year though, that would require far too much dedication, as there only seems to be photos at the end of that.
Being a Japanese site, there is of course the issue of their censorship laws, although this site, being very softcore, doesn't focus a lot on the genitals anyway, and it is quite subtly blurred , as opposed to the big square mosaic blocks you get sometimes. Plus, they will show a lot of pubes before the blurring kicks in.
Losing access to the site the instant you cancel your membership, is in my view, a very poor practice, if you pay for a certain amount of time, you should get access for that full time, regardless of whether you have cancelled it's re-billing or not. The only reason I can see for them to do that is they must expect some people to forget to cancel on time, and the automatic re-billing kicks in. Then if you cancelled the next day, you instantly lose access to the site!
The tour page show a fair representation of what is on the inside, so if you like what you see there, the site might be worth a shot. One thing I can guarantee though: you will get frustrated by the layout of the site, with it's poor navigation, and content that you can't access.
So, finally to sum it all up in a few words:
Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
+ Truly beautiful models. They claim over 300
+ Site is very much weighted to photosets.
+ Generally good photography over 30000 images
+ Very 'Japanese' : On the positive side it has a novel approach for westeners and in some respects it is quite appealing.
The translations can be quaint.
The models are treated with respect
and seem to be enjoying the experience.
+ Videos - Over 100 of them.
Short, very softcore & I actually quite liked them.
Not so much that I would bother to download any though.
- Galleries are updated daily, I think, but a gallery is only 15 photos & is not offered in a choice of resolutions. ( Typically 1300 x 900 )
- Confusing navigation, not helped by...
- Very 'Japanese': Layout is not intuitive and with the restrictive....
- Points system controls which models, photos & zips you are allowed access to
and possibly even the size of image you are allowed to access.
Although how the system works is very Japanese & quite inscrutable! :0/
Basically what it comes down to is that it will take a year continuous subscription to get access to all the site content!
Seeing greyed out stills & small thumbnails shows that whilst this is more of the same good quality, it is nowhere near enough to make me want to invest a years worth of subscription for it.
- Videos - Short & very softcore : Some may see this as a minus.
** Failed to respond to cancellation request in 2 working days. Lowered score to a 'not recommended status'
Right, let me say at the outset, I really did want to like this site.
On balance I do but there are some heavy caveats.
I have listed some points above as both positive and negative.
The 'Japanese'ness of the site is quirky, but will soon become a terminal irritation. Photosets are random pictures rather than a cohesive photoset with any progression and are very short on quantity, although the quality is good.
A lot of the clothing used is western, which I found a little disappointing.
I was expecting to see at least some more traditional Japanese attire. I would have hoped it would have been 1 trad set per model. The kimono does appear but very infrequently.
I would have thought a lot higher of this site if it had been all available upon subscription. As it stands, 'cheated' is too strong a word, 'deprived' suits as a better word for my feelings on this.
It is understandable that they wish to encourage long term membership.
The way they have weighted the points though, it isn't really worthwhile.
