By Samuel H. Sloan
Our protagonist is named SAM. He tells the others that he is just about broke, down to his last $200.
A young, blond haired boy from Finland, in heavily accented and broken English, states:
The next morning, Sam goes to the Japanese consulate in Shanghai and applies for a visa. He has spruced himself up and looks much better than on the previous day. Still, the Japanese vice-consul eyes him with extreme suspicion.
This is, of course, a lie. However, the Japanese vice-consul finally gives Sam a visa.
Sam barely has enough money to buy a one-way ticket from Shanghai, China to Nagasaki, Japan, which is the nearest city in Japan with a direct flight from Shanghai. Upon arrival in Nagasaki, Sam stands on the freeway, trying to hitchhike. The Japanese police pick Sam up in a patrol car and warn him that it is illegal to hitchhike on the freeway. They drive Sam to a better spot, near the entrance to a major freeway. Sam catches a ride and starts his journey of hitchhiking to Tokyo.
Sam makes good progress and catches several rides. On about the fourth ride, he is picked up by three Japanese teenagers, two boys and a girl. By now, it is nighttime. The girl is very beautiful. She sits in the front seat between the two boys, but it seems that every chance she gets she turns around and smiles at Sam.
Soon, they go off the highway and stop at a private building. Sam and the three teenagers go inside. They wake up two other boys who are asleep on futons on the floor. This is obviously an office where business is done. After an agitated discussion, the four boys quickly leave, leaving Sam alone with the girl. The girl sits demurely on the floor and smiles radiantly at Sam, although she says nothing. She is very, very beautiful. Unfortunately for Sam, only a few minutes later, the boys excitedly charge back in the door and motion for Sam to come with them and get in the car. Sam gets in the car, leaving the girl behind. The four boys take Sam out to the freeway and leave Sam there to hitchhike some more.
Sam continues to hitchhike all through the night and through the next day. The last ride is a long ride with two Japanese businessmen. Incongruously, they play an American song entitled, "I Love Everything About My Boyfriend" over and over on their cassette player during the trip.
The two businessmen drop Sam off at Tokyo Station in downtown Tokyo. Sam finds his way to the tourist information booth and is given directions to the youth hostel in Ichigaya, where he spends the night.
Sam is sitting there alone. The telephone rings. Sam answers.
Finally, a low, almost whispering, voice speaks.
Silence. Finally, after a long pause, Atsuko speaks.
Atsuko hangs up the telephone. Sam puts on his coat and leaves Mario's office.
EXT. SHIN-OCHANOMIZU STATION. AFTERNOON
Atsuko meets Sam as he comes past the ticket taker. They walk together. Hardly speaking at all. She takes him directly to her place. They take the elevator up to her three-mat room.
INT. ATSUKO'S THREE-MAT ROOM
Sam and Atsuko sit nervously on the mats to her room. There is no furniture. Only three tatami mats. A long time passes and almost nothing is said. Finally, Sam looks at his watch.
Sam and Atsuko leave, take the elevator downstairs. Go to a coffee shop. Still say almost nothing. Sam rises.
Sam pays the check. Leaves with Atsuko. They go back to her three mat room. Again they sit for a long time.
Sam tries to rise to his feet. However, he has been sitting on the floor for a long time, Japanese style. As Sam tries to stand up, he loses his balance, falls over and lands directly on Atsuko. Atsuko topples over backwards. Lands on her back on the floor. Atsuko is now spread-eagled, with Sam directly on top of her.
Sam surveys the scene. Atsuko is lying on her back, spread-eagled on the floor. Her head is lying on the side. Her eyes are closed. She is completely passive. Suddenly, Sam understands.
Sam unzips Atsuko, pulls her pants off only. Sam performs cunnalingus by eating Atsuko's pussy. When Sam has got Atsuko good and juiced up, he removes the rest of her clothing. Then Sam removes all of his own clothing. He gets on her, sticks his dick in her mouth. (Remember, however, that this has to be an "R" rated movie.) Atsuko performs fellatio by giving Sam a blow job. Now, Atsuko becomes active, flips Sam on his back. Gives Sam a better blow job. Atsuko gets ready to mount Sam.
Sam nods his head affirmatively. Atsuko mounts Sam. They fuck for a long time.
Sam holds Atsuko by the rib cage. In a sweeping motion, rolls the two of them over so that now Sam is on the top, but his penis has never left her vagina during this operation.
From now on, they both fuck much harder. Sam hooks his arms under Atsuko's legs, brings her ankles up around his neck. Bends her over in a jackknifed position. Fucks Atsuko very hard. Sam lets go of Atsuko's legs, but she keeps her legs up anyway. Sam bangs the shit out of Atsuko. Finally, both of them are panting, gasping for breath and covered with beads of sweat. Sam falls over on the floor.
Only a few minutes later, Atsuko shakes Sam.
Sam reluctantly rises and gets dressed. Sam is ready to leave, while Atsuko sits demurely on the floor.
Sam leaves. Goes to the sento (Japanese public bath) to bathe.
INT. A TYPICAL PUBLIC BATH IN JAPAN
Sam enters the sento, removes his shoes. Sam fails to notice that in this particular sento, unlike almost all others, the women's side is on the right, whereas the men's side is on the left. There is a sign in Japanese, but Sam can't read this. Sam goes into the women's side by mistake. Sees a bunch of naked, mostly middle-aged Japanese women. They hardly notice. Sam corrects his mistake, goes into the men's side. Sam soaps down Japanese style, washes. Finally gets into the hot bath with a bunch of naked, Japanese men. Sam reads the thermometer. It reads 45 degrees centigrade (which is 113 degrees Fahrenheit).
INT. MARIO'S OFFICE
The telephone rings. Sam answers.
Sam puts on his coat and leaves Mario's office.
Sam walks to Mario Junior's apartment in Roppongi, a twenty minute walk. Mario Junior lives in a "2KD" apartment, on a back side street, far but walking distance from Roppongi's center of night life. Obviously, this apartment is strategically located so that Mario Junior can pick up girls in Roppongi, a center of night life, and then bring them to his apartment.
INT. MARIO JUNIOR'S 2KD APARTMENT
Sam knocks on the door. Mario Junior answers.
Mario Junior lets Sam in. Two girls are seated on the floor, Japanese style. Mario Junior tells Sam to sit down, in between the two girls.
One girl is 19, the other is 20. The 19-year-old is absolutely the most beautiful girl Sam has ever seen, anywhere in Japan. The 20-year-old is plain and dull looking. You can just imagine which one Mario Junior wants to give to Sam. Mario Junior sits on the other side, so the four of them now form a circle.
By now, the very beautiful girl has laid her head on the side of Mario Junior's bed and is fast asleep, even though she is sitting upright, Japanese style.
Mario Junior speaks a few words to the 20-year-old in Japanese. Then Sam, Mario Junior and the 20-year-old get up and go out, leaving the other one sound asleep, still leaning against Mario Junior's bed. They three go outside.
EXT. ON THE STREET AT NIGHT
Mario Junior talks to the 20-year-old in Japanese (which, of course, he speaks fluently). She is agitated, argues vehemently. Finally, Mario Junior translates to Sam.
Sam leaves with his newly acquired companion. Mario Junior turns and goes back to his apartment.
Sam is on the telephone with Reimer.
EXT. KABUKI-CHO IN SHINJUKU AT NIGHT
Reimer takes Sam to the TS Music in Kabuki-cho. They each pay 1500 yen and enter the show.
INT. THE SHINJUKU TS MUSIC IN KABUKI-CHO
Sam and Reimer sit in the audience. A succession of Japanese girls get on the stage and strip. One by one they do a strip dance. When each one is finally naked, some Japanese businessman in the audience climbs on stage and has sex with her. This is known in Japanese as a Namaita style show. By the end of the evening, every Japanese salaryman in the audience has been laid, some of them two or three times. Sam and Reimer are almost the only ones who do not participate. Sam is bored and unimpressed.
INT. SHINJUKU SHOGI CENTER
It is Saturday night. Sam is playing shogi with an opponent. Sam looks at his watch and suddenly realizes that he is about to miss the last train. Sam apologizes to his opponent, runs out the door.
EXT. THE AREA OF SHINJUKU STATION AT NIGHT
Sam runs from the Shinjuku Shogi Center on Yasakuni Dori to Shinjuku Station. Sam pays his way in and runs up the stairs to the platform. When Sam arrives, the train is just pulling out of the station. Sam has missed the last train and is stuck in Shinjuku for the night.
Sam now walks around Shinjuku. Sam enters Kabuki-cho, walks around, finds the giant mechanical crab on the wall, and finds the TS Music behind it. Sam pays 1500 yen and enters the TS Music.
INT. THE TS MUSIC IN KABUKI-CHO
The usual crowd of about 100 Japanese salarymen are sitting around the stage. The stage is a "T" shape. Sometimes the girls dance and strip on the main stage and sometimes they come out on the platform, lay down and have sex there with volunteers from the audience. This is a Namaita style show. There is a futon on the platform where the girl lays down when she has sex with a man. Stage hands come on and change these futons at appropriate times. Each act lasts 15 minutes. Often, the girl will sing or dance a little before laying down and having sex. Usually, a girl will have sex with two men in her act. If the men are quick enough, sometimes she will look at her watch and say that she has time for a third. Almost always, the girl performs fellatio on the man first, giving him a blow job. If the girls are not especially beautiful, sometimes two at a time come out and have sex with men. Not all the acts involve sex with the audience. There are other performances, magic tricks and even comedy skits. There are a total of eight acts in rotation. Thus, a total of two hours will pass before the same act comes back around again.
Not all of the girls on stage are Japanese. One is a foreigner. She gets on stage. She is tall and statuesque and has long blond hair and blue eyes. Sam can recognize her accent. She is American.
The crowd of 100 Japanese salarymen all look bored. It is late at night and some of them are sleepy. Undoubtedly, most if not all of them have been laid at least once already tonight. They slouch in their chairs, apparently uninterested.
The American girl is really quite beautiful. She struts back and forth on the platform. She does her strip tease and finally strips naked. The crowd is still bored. Nobody volunteers to come up and have sex with her.
Still no response.
Now, the American girl sits down on the stage.
The American girl points to a man in the audience.
One Japanese salaryman in the audience slowly and reluctantly gets on stage. The American girl lays him down on the futon, strips him naked, gives him a blow job and then climbs on and has sex with him. When the sex act is finished, the man gets up and gets dressed and they both leave the stage.
Next on stage is a beautiful young Japanese girl wearing a blue high school uniform with a spotless white blouse. Her stage name is HIRATSUKA KAZUMI. She appears to be about 15 years old. She has that look of total innocence. In her act, she holds a high school baton, does a little high school dance and sings "Mikan no hana", a little children's song, just as all Japanese high school girls typically do.
Sam gets bored. Sam yawns. Sam is thinking, "This is obviously a little skit, in between the serious acts. I wonder why they let a girl this young into a place like this?"
Sam looks around the room. He notices that all the Japanese salarymen are now sitting bolt upright in their chairs. No longer is anyone looking slouched or sleepy-eyed. "What's the big deal", thinks Sam, "We see high school girls like this in the street every day."
Hiratsuka Kazumi completes her little dance and her little song. She then retreats demurely to a far corner of the stage. Suddenly, almost the entire audience (except for Sam, of course) jumps onto the stage simultaneously. There is pushing and shoving. Some men lose their balance and fall off the stage.
The men remaining on the stage now divide into groups of four or five and start playing a game of "Jon, Ken, Pone." This is a game known in America as "Scissors, Paper, Stone", i.e. the scissors cuts the paper, the paper wraps the stone and the stone breaks the scissors.
Now, all the men in their various groups say "Jon Ken Pone" almost simultaneously as they compete against each other. As the games are decided, the losers jump off the stage. Each group of four produces a winner. The winners face each other. Finally, a grand champion emerges from all the groups. All the losers jump off stage. Finally, there is only one Japanese salaryman left on the stage, plus Hiratsuka Kazumi who is still standing demurely in the corner waiting for the results of the competition.
Stage hands come on and bring a big futon plus other props. Music starts. Hiratsuka Kazumi motions for the winner to lay down on the futon. He lays down, and then she lays down next to him. She is wearing a spotless white blouse. She motions for the man just to unbutton the top button of her blouse only. He complies. She then points to the second button and he unbuttons that one as well. Slowly, following her directions, he unbuttons her entire blouse, revealing an exceptionally large breast, especially by Japanese standards. Now, Hiratsuka Kazumi undresses completely and then helps the Japanese salaryman take off all of his clothing.
Now, they are both naked. Hiratsuka Kazumi gives the salaryman a blow job. She is now facing the back of the stage, while he is facing forward. Once he has a hard on, Hiratsuka Kazumi mounts him.
However, now a surprising thing happens. The Japanese salaryman loses his hard on. Hiratsuka Kazumi gets off and tries again, but still the man can't get it up. Finally, he gets dressed and leaves the stage.
INT. ROGERS' OFFICE
Rogers enters the office. It's morning. Sam is on the floor trying to sleep.
That night Reimer calls.
INT. TS MUSIC IN KABUKI-CHO
Sam buys a ticket, enters the TS Music and seats himself in the audience. A girl is stripping and doing her act on stage. Sam waits through this and several other acts. Finally, Hiratsuka Kazumi comes on stage, wearing the same blue high school uniform. She sings her little song and does her little dance, exactly as before. Then, following her usual routine, she retreats to the rear of the stage.
A bunch of Japanese salarymen jump on stage, and Sam jumps on stage too. The men divide themselves into groups of four. They play jon ken pone. Sam wins the first round. Two of his opponents concede defeat and jump off stage, leaving just one. Sam defeats him. Now, Sam is the winner of his group. All the losers from the other groups jump off. Now, there are enough men left for two groups of four. Sam wins his group again. The losers jump off. Now, there is only Sam and one other contestant left on stage.
Sam and his opponent square off. They say jon ken pone. It's a tie. They say jon ken pone again. It's another tie. They say jon ken pone a third time. This time Sam wins. Sam's opponent bows in defeat and jumps off stage. Now, Sam is left alone on the stage with Hiratsuka Kazumi. This entire competition has lasted less than one or two minutes.
Now, exactly the same thing happens as before. The stage hands bring out their props. The music starts. Hiratsuka Kazumi motions for Sam to lay down and then Hiratsuka Kazumi lays down beside him. Hiratsuka Kazumi motions for him to unbutton the top button of her blouse and so on. Just as before, he undresses her and then she undresses him. Now, Hiratsuka Kazumi sucks Sam's dick a little bit and then mounts him. Hiratsuka Kazumi puts it in.
Sam is now fucking one of the most beautiful women of his life. Suddenly, Sam realizes that there is a problem. Although he is completely inside her, he barely has a hard on and he is rapidly losing what little he has left. Worse yet, the spotlight is shining directly in his eyes. Sam is losing his concentration. Sam shields his eyes. He can barely see Hiratsuka Kazumi. Now, Sam realizes what the reason is why all those other men couldn't get a hard on with Hiratsuka Kazumi. Sam is really worried now. He is afraid that he might fail. Sam is going to lose his chance if he does not do something soon.
(During this time, the camera shows a blinding light, only out of the corner of which Sam can see Hiratsuka Kazumi mounted over him.)
Sam reaches up, takes Hiratsuka Kazumi by the shoulders, and flips her over on her back. Now, Sam is on top of her, without ever coming outside of her. Hiratsuka Kazumi is astonished. Apparently nobody has done this before. She protests mildly, looks shocked. She exclaims something in Japanese. But, what can she say?
Now, Sam is on top of Hiratsuka Kazumi. Instantly, Sam has a really strong hard on; the doubts in his mind have been erased. Sam proceeds to fuck the shit out of Hiratsuka Kazumi. Sam puts his arms under Hiratsuka Kazumi's legs and pulls her ankles up to around his neck. Since the crowd is seated behind them, they can see clearly, of course. Sam grits his teeth, as he bangs the shit out of Hiratsuka Kazumi.
Sam finishes, lets her legs down. Sam stands up to get dressed. The crowd stands up and gives a thunderous, cheering applause. Even the few Japanese salarywomen (there are a few in the audience) applause. They climb on their chairs and look. Sam gets dressed and leaves the stage.
EXT. ON THE STREET NEAR THE TS MUSIC
Sam is walking around Kabuki-cho. He looks through the glass door of a restaurant, and there he sees Hiratsuka Kazumi eating noodles with two other women. One is another girl who does sex at the same show. The other is an older obviously lesbian bull-dyke type woman.
Sam looks at his watch and thinks about approaching Hiratsuka Kazumi. Just then, an American Cadillac of the type notoriously driven by the Yakuza (Japanese gangsters) drives up to the door of the restaurant. The driver has a tattoo and looks very much like the Yakuza who was confronted by Reimer earlier in the train. (Perhaps he is the same person.) Hiratsuka Kazumi and the other two women come out of the restaurant, get in the Cadillac and the driver drives off.
Sam walks from Sendagaya Station to the Nihon Shogi Renmei.
INT. THE NIHON SHOGI RENMEI
Sam enters the playing room. An attractive girl is sitting there taking the entries. This is the same girl who was present when Sam first came to the club as a beginner one month ago. She looks shocked when she realizes that Sam wants to enter the shodan promotion tournament. She had written down the word for seven-kyu in Japanese. She now crosses it out and corrects it to one-kyu.
Unfortunately, Rogers is right. Sam comes nowhere close to winning. Actually, he wins three games and loses two, but the two loses are total defeats. After the competition is over, Onogi approaches Sam.
INT. ROGERS' OFFICE
The telephone rings. Rogers answers. Rogers talks on the telephone in Japanese and then turns to Sam.
EXT. THE NEW OTANI HOTEL IN TOKYO
The New Otani Hotel in Tokyo is considered to be one of the finest hotels in the world. The Nihon Shogi Renmei has decided to hold its official reception here. Sam enters. There are lots of hors d'oeuvres and a fancy environment. Sam gorges himself on the free food. There are also television cameras, plus newspaper reporters and photographers. Sam is treated like a visiting celebrity.
The next day, the competition begins. Sam is paired against the representative from France and wins his first round game. In the second round, Sam faces the representative from Turkey. His name is Asad Kurbanali. Unfortunately for Sam, he is a much tougher opponent. He was actually born in Japan and has lived all his life here. He is a Turkish diplomat, working in the Turkish Embassy. He wipes Sam out and wins the game easily.
Sam is now placed in a consolation group, which he wins. Sam wins an exciting last round game against the representative from Canada. As a result, Sam finishes fifth in the competition. Asad Kurbanali finishes second, after being defeated by a boy from Brazil who is half Japanese.
INT. ROGERS' OFFICE DAYTIME
Sam spends the next several months hunched over a computer, writing his shogi computer program.
One day the telephone rings. Rogers answers.
Sam goes to the telephone
INT. A COFFEE SHOP NEAR SHIMBASHI STATION
Sam enters the coffee shop. Mario Junior is already waiting for him. Mario Junior waves Sam over. Sam sits. Mario Junior orders coffee for both of them.
The coffee arrives. Suddenly, Mario Senior appears from nowhere. Sam realizes that he has been set up. Sam rises to leave.
Mario Senior puts his hand on Sam's shoulder, pressing him down.
Mario Senior bangs his fist on the table.
Mario Senior goes into his Sherlock Holmes mode.
After that, I took out each broad on the list, one by one. I took them to dinner. Finally, I would bring up the subject. I would say, 'It's too bad about Sam. And he's such a nice guy, too.'
Then the broad might answer, 'What's bad about Sam'. Then I would say, 'Well, tragically, Sam has Binrumania.'
The broad would answer, 'What's Binrumania?' I answered, 'Binrumania is an extremely rare but virulent form of venereal disease, which results in a certain and painful death.'
When I said that to the other broads, like Tomoko, Yoko, Hiromi and Noodles, they just seemed bored and changed the subject. However, when I said that to Atsuko, she turned as white as a sheet, so I said, 'You haven't had sex with Sam, have you, because, if you have, I have to get you to the doctor right away!'
So, Atsuko confessed. She had had sex with Sam. Naturally, I rushed Atsuko to the doctor right away. I took her to a doctor I always go to whenever I have V.D. Atsuko told the doctor in my presence that she had had sex with Sam. The doctor gave her all kinds of tests. He couldn't find anything, but there's always the incubation period. I told Atsuko that Sam had contracted this disease when he was up in the remote hills of Afghanistan, and the doctors around here wouldn't know about that.
After that, Atsuko went back to her home town to check into the hospital and for a series of medical tests. She's there now.
Atsuko also says that Sam didn't come outside of her when they had sex. She thinks she's pregnant. She says that if she is pregnant, she's going to have an abortion.
Throughout this, Sam sits glumly and remains silent. Now, Mario, who has been addressing Mario Junior up until now, turns to Sam with a big smile on his face
INT. MARIO JUNIOR'S APARTMENT IN ROPPONGI
Sam knocks at the door. Mario Junior answers.
Mario Junior and Sam sit and talk about nothing particular. Then, Mario Junior points to his bed, which has a rumpled blanket on it.
Sam walks over to the bed and peeks under the blanket. It's Hiromi. She has an impish smile on her face.
Sam returns and sits down.
Anyway, Sam, I still don't know what's the matter with you. I think that you're afraid of girls or something. There's one billion broads over here. One billion! Let me tell you what happened to me about two weeks ago. There's this girl's high school near here in Roppongi.
Then, a few days later, the second broad calls me. So, I agree to meet her at the same koban, and I bring her here and right away I lay her, just like I laid the first one.
Then a few more days go by and the third broad calls up, and I meet her at the koban and I bring her here and I lay her right away just like I laid her two friends. I laid them all right in the bed over there where CPO is sleeping.
Now, these three broads all take the same classes together in high school. Don't you see? They're passing me around, treating me like a sex object. They think that I have no feelings, no dignity, and no self respect. It's a tough life, you know? Let me tell you Sam. If you want a virgin girl these days in Tokyo, she's got to be at least 26 years old. The younger ones have all given it away long ago.
While Mario Junior has been saying this, Hiromi, who is still on the bed and under the blankets, reaches out with one arm, grabs her clothing, and pulls it under the covers. Then, Hiromi dresses under the blankets. Finally, Hiromi is dressed and emerges from under the blankets and sits down next to Mario Junior. Hiromi smiles radiantly at Mario Junior and Sam.
Hiromi, isn't it time for you to go to your part time job?
Well, I think you'd better be going soon anyway, Hiromi.
Sam, Hiromi has a part time job now at a fancy club in Ginza. She's the receptionist. The first thing the customers see when they walk in the club is Hiromi. She wears a fancy kimono. They always put the most beautiful girl in the club at the front door. She says that she doesn't do sex with the customers, though. The other girls do, but she doesn't. I believe her. That's what she says.
By now, Hiromi is puttering around Mario Junior's 2KD apartment, washing the dishes and tidying up.
