So both husband and widow have been around a lot.

Read a Japan Times article of her interview way back in January of 2002. She was a busy teen, working at a life insurance company, attending night school, taking lessons in dance, tea ceremony and flower arrangement and working one night a week where her pay for the night equaled a month's salary from the life insurance company. (BTW, she was a minor when she worked as a hostess.) She is a woman who gives herself opportunities to advance and takes chances. The woman says "...everyone is given chances. Whether you have the intelligence to recognize a chance when it comes up, that’s another matter. Then you have to work hard to make the most of that opportunity to achieve success." Certainly a far cry from the first impression one forms when reading that she was a former bar hostess. I met a few girls who work as hostesses part-time. For some, the extra money is for clothes and accessories and for others, it's money needed to pay bills and then a few who say it's a way to meet guys and have boyfriends to pay for dinner and fun.
