Its more like a literal display of it. I think you are out of line to accuse him of being dishonest just because he has not openly declared his sexual kink directly and verbally. Pretty much NO ONE does that, even if their fetish is in the dark, under the covers, with their spouse and only for procreation. It just isn't done and not this guy's fault or responsibility. Anybody with half a clue knows what is going on.

Dont suppose this is a relation of yours by any chance.

In the uk he would be transferred to a psychiatric unit .

If anybody thinks this is normal, then god help the rest of us.

Can a ticket be purchased through 711 terminal or is it free? Asking for a friend.

Glad he doesn't live near me. There are enough weirdos in my area without something like this attracting even more.

I purchased around half my collection of love dolls. The rest I acquired from acquaintances who no longer needed them because of 

not really something you want to have, used.........but whatever floats your boat.

This is a smokescreen to cover his fetish

A museum lol.

This is a smokescreen to cover his fetish, and I wonder which one he chooses each time he is feeling a little frisky lol .

Japan holds a reputation for having some of the world's most eccentric and offbeat subcultures

Yeah, a fake one created by a lying, sensationalist press catering to fools and advertisers who desperately want to believe all the weirdness of their own countries either doesn't exist or is normal, and I promise you, Japan is not remotely the weirdest. They just have the fewest allies and that's the only reason the sensationalism works.

This takes getting "dolled up" to a whole new level.

Here's hoping he doesn't run afoul of the authorities for violating censorship laws.

His sex dolls presumably have lady parts, but I trust he doesn't have a lady parts-shaped kayak....

This is one of the times you would like to see a typo! "One man's sex doll pushing limits"

The dolls never complain or ask for money-has to be a positive there

I have been to his place and taken photos. It was a fun experience that I would recommend to any adult. If you don't want to go all the way to Saitama, Orient Kogyo, the company that manufactures many of the dolls, has a showroom just off Ame-Yoko street in Okachimachi, near Ueno.

You know what, I respect this guy. Almost died several times and had the realization “life is short, do what you like even if randoms online think your weird”

Wish him all the success. I won’t be going but good luck lol

Since I was young, I have been fascinated by cyborgs and artificial life forms and before I knew it, my fate became intertwined with such things, and my home has become a treasure trove,"

Wow.

Hyodo, who lives alone

We knew

If you're having thoughts about starting a museum based on your personal collection of sex dolls... you should probably ignore those thoughts.

The discovery sparked a desire in him to be surrounded by dolls,

That's something you don't read very often.

This just another story based on fact that can be used by foreign media outlet to push weird Japan stories.
