SakuraLive.com - sexy cams showing the sweetest Japanese girls

Whoop-de-doo fellahs, how does this wonderful, wonderful crisp fall evening find you? Hopefully it finds you up for discovering another brilliant web cam site with that sweet and spicy Asian cam flavor. This evening I have been taking my travels as far east as they can take me, by visiting Japan, the land of exotic cam models. The site I have been pawing at for you is called SakuraLive.com.

First up I guess I have to explain that name. If you know anything about Japan then you know that once a year all the cherry trees throughout the country explode into bloom, producin', for a short time only, tons and tons of cherry blossoms. Well, the Japanese name for these blossoms is "Sakura" - hence "SakuraLive", you see.

If you like Japanese cam sites, then I guess I ought to do the investigatin' for you. You should be expectin' headless cam babes and sex cam models who won't talk to you. How does the site - that's been up online since 2009 - hold up?

A very nice welcome ...

How I found the site

Things do start off sweet, with one of the sexiest "RU18?" banner pages I've ever seen. It reminded me a lot of LiveAsianWebCams.com. In fact a great deal reminded me of LiveAsianWebCams.com to be honest, so it would not surprise me if they were clones of one another. I certainly recognized a few performers at both sites, but then I've been noticing a few "common" performers at a lot of these Asian sites. Why not have a look around my reviews and see how many you can spot?

Anyhow, let's not get thing started by heading on down the wrong path entirely. The landin' page is just like most cam sites, with the blocks of models who are hopefully waiting to entertain you erotically. This screen has two novelties - one is a large cam screen in the top left corner that keeps scrollin' through the models. I kinda found this annoying, and I don't judge it's a great advertiser as you can see that typical "blurgh" aspect of Japanese cam sites - nearly all of the models sit so you can't see their faces, which don't appeal to me at all.

The second innovation is a "Japanese to English" translation tool. Now, I know enough (honest!) to know that Japanese ain't the easiest language to understand, so how good this software is, I can't tell you. it's largely pointless anyhow, for reasons I will come on to later.

The SakuraLive.com Site

You get the cam model's screen name and age from the menu, and if you hover the pointer over the cam you get the usual kind of preview, plus how many punters are currently in the room, and what languages the model can speak. I'm afraid to say if you can't muster a word of Japanese on here, you won't get very far, translation tool or not. Type away in English all you want, but getting a model to respond to you is tough.

There's a filtering menu along the top with filters for new girls, HD cams and remote-controllable sex toys. The other menu that's a little bit higher is where you'll be able to purchase points, read the FAQs, see the "How to" page and contact the site. You can also use a search facility, and there's a free videos section. I had a look at the free videos on offer, and they weren't actually that bad, although most of the real red-hot action occurs off cam.

Navigation through the cam menus is goddamn awful. Select a cam and you get a "buffering" circle, and then a message "performer is offline" - why are they near the top of the menu screen if they are offline? It's actually easier to wait for a Japanese cam model you like to appear on the cam screen, and then click. The cams seem to take ages to load. If you want to chat, click the "Chat" button and the chat applet (another pop up!) appears. You'll soon find out without membership you cannot chat at all, and your free preview lasts barely twenty seconds.

Special features

Becomin' a member removes the free preview time limit, and allows you to enjoy two-way-video-chat, remote control sex toys and a favorites list. Oh and to actually be able to chat with the models (or not if you can only chat in English).

Ease of registration

Ease of registration is not easy. You can type in your chosen username, password and a valid email address if you want to, but unless you're willing to pay $2.95 for the privilege (you do get ten "points" free though), then you ain't gonna get very far. At least you can see a sexy naked lady.

Types of chat

If you look at the FAQs you will see EXACTLY the same text as appears on DxLive.com, so I'm guessin' all these sites are inter-connected. It has the same quote:

"Do I need to register?

No. You can use our service by simply purchasing points. Visit our Points page to start chatting."

Click on the link given, and you end up at the registration page. Bizarre or what?

There are no details of what chat is available on the site, but one point seems to cost $2. I was losin' interest by now.

Getting to know a headless model

Video quality

From what I saw, the cams are not bad. There's no indication of whether they are HD or not.

Prices

ALL chat costs one point per minute. One-to-one chat costs an extra half a point per minute. Private messages cost $1 a message. I've no idea how many points you can buy in one go as the site does not tell you. Readin' other reviews of this site it seems no one else knows either.

Buying points at SakuraLive.com

Payment methods

CCBill through Visa, MasterCard, JCB or Discover.

Number of models

When I was visiting, the site said it had 23,000+ models online, of which just under 10,000 were Japanese girls, and just under 7,000 had HD cams. Finding out how many are actually online is virtually impossible, and about 22,990 seem to be permanently offline!

Model MIA - as happens a lot

Customer support

There's the FAQs and the HowTo guide, but the only person-to-person contact is via a webform.

Pros and Cons

Pros

✔ - The free videos are kind of okay
✔ - A few naked ladies to look at

Cons

✖ - Hardly any models seem to be online, and the ones that are - headless and ignorant if you try and converse with them in English
✖ - No free chat - all forms of chat cost money
✖ - You have to pay $2.95 just to join
✖ - No info about costs on site, and some information is clearly wrong

Conclusion

If you want to spend your dollars conversin' to faceless Japanese models who won't answer back at $2 a minute, then SakuraLive.com is definitely the place for you. Send me a postcard when you get there, won't you?
