The manager of a club in Yokohama that employed high school girls to show their underwear to patrons was arrested on Wednesday, police said. The suspect, 37-year-old Takamitsu Tanno, was charged with violating the labor standards act barring children from potentially dangerous employment.
Police also searched the premises of the club, Yokohama Mambo. According to promotional material written for the club's homepage and other publications, it was dubbed a "high school girl inspection club." Customers were offered a view of the girls' underwear via a "magic mirror."
Police said they searched the same venue on April 25 of this year, as part of an ongoing investigation of the club.© Compiled from news reports
