Introduction – Top Japanese webcam with thousands of girls
If you want to know what it’d be like to date a Japanese girl, then you’d probably have to move to Japan. On the other hand, if you don’t mind the idea of video sex chat with a Japanese cam girl, then today’s SakuraLive review might appeal to you.
Sakura Live features thousands of amateur Japanese girls that will chat with you, strip for you, and perform live porn shows. If you pay a little extra, she’ll even orgasm for you.
There are some interesting features as well, such as a chat translation tool if you don’t understand Japanese. We’ll cover all the features and everything else you need to know about this Japanese live webcam site below.
Impression – The new site design has elevated the user experience
I’m glad to see that SakuraLive has upgraded its site with a newer design. You’ll find all the same features, but it’s now easier to navigate and quicker to load. The site features the same models as on their other company site Live Asian Webcams (the sites have now merged together) so regardless of which site you visit, you’ll find the same selection of girls.
When you visit SakuraLive.com, you’ll find all the models displayed by profile pictures. Each model is displayed by FREE PREVIEW, PRIVATE SHOW, or SHOW STARTED.
You can filter the models by using the quick link such as ‘HD Cams’, ‘Toys’ and ‘New Girls’, they are all found at the top menu.
Japanese Cam Girls
So here’s how it works. You first browse the girls and find someone you like. If she has a green “FREE PREVIEW” label, then it means you can simply click on that link and view her live on her webcam.
SakuraLive offers a free chat for members with some of the models but not all. Look for the green tag that says “free chat” next to her profile picture. To ask the girls questions and get a vibe for what she’s all about can be hard to do if you don’t speak Japanese. But Sakura Live has a solution for this with their translation tool. It automatically translates what you and the webcam model writes in the chat. This is a great feature that makes the site accessible for non-Japanese speakers.
The site claims to have over 21,000+ registered Japanese cam girls. But to be fair, you’ll probably find closer to 50 or 100 online at most times of the day, and these days you’ll also find models from other parts of the world.
The free previews are limiting and will get boring fast. So sooner or later, you’ll want to see more of her skin and less of her clothing. To access additional site features, you can simply create a free account which is totally free to test out how the chat rooms work.
In terms of free chat, you won’t get any nudity or free strip teases. For those features, you might have a better chance at one of the bigger live networks (see our reviews of Live Jasmin and Im Live which offer unlimited free chat).
Sakura Live Chat Options
Here’s how it works. You purchase points in bundles. Each point is worth $2. Listed below are the different show types:
MEMBERS CHAT (1.2 points/min) – The members chat is for registered members only. Multiple viewers can enter the show at the same time so not all your requests will be responded to (depending on how many people are watching the show).
PRIVATE CHAT (2.2 points/min) – This is the most “hardcore” option as you can request any type of sexual fetish. The Japanese are known for extreme porn and bizarre sex acts so if you have an unusual request, you will need to enter private chat.
PRIVATE MESSAGE (1 point/message) – Members can send private messages to the models for a fixed price of $2 per message.
REMOTE CONTROL (1 points/30 secs) – Sakuralive was the first site to offer members the option to control the girl’s sex toys from your keyboard (Live Jasmin has also added this feature). Although I have yet to try this feature, it’s an additional cost on top of the private chat price.
SakuraLive uses a point system to pay for private shows, messaging, control sex toys, etc. The price of one point is around $2, the points you top-up to your account expires after two years.
When you signup as a new member at SakuraLive you get Free Points with a value of $20!
In terms of originality of a Japanese webcam site, I’d give Sakuralive a perfect score. But in terms of price, it’s expensive, especially if you plan on using the extra features.
Having said that, SakuraLive is free to join and you get free points just by joining the site. And as a member, you can chat for free with most of the girls. This is the best way to experience the site before deciding whether to purchase points for a 1-on-1 camgirl experience. Check it out below!
