The Dream of Garuda is set in Japan's notorious "soaplands" - areas where young women offer bathing and massage to men, for cash, as a way round the Japanese laws prohibiting prostitution. The story is inspired by folklore surrounding the mythical Hindu god "Garuda", a creature with a gigantic birdlike body, who though regarded as evil, is worshipped as the protector of Buddhism. The Dream of Garuda is filled with highly charged, explicit sex scenes which are at times tender, at others brutal but always very erotic. An absolute treat for soap fetishists the world over.
