Doesn't seem very sanitary to me.

Well .... you could always take them into the bathroom and give them a thorough wash ;).

And it’s not going to always be chics ordering, lol.

Strange...

As long as they're wearing masks, why not? I imagine - and there is a lot of imagining swirling around this article I'm sure - they have a jacket on till they get to the residence, and they slip that off and do a few flexes before grabbing the delivery and heading to the door.

If you eat sushi, why not fork out for a special delivery?

They have shown wrong muscle. Big breasts are wrong for men.

I'll pass thanks

Men have had Hooters for far too long. This is an alternative for those left out.

Not my cup of tea but sure the wife would enjoy her sushi getting delivered by these young bucks.

I would rather a delivery person in a hazmat suit.

You're just jealous of these dudes' bods :D

With these guys wearing budgie smugglers, perhaps they could call the restaurant "Shooters"?

I don't personally bother or criticize it, but I just wonder if activists are tolerant of such sexism. What if the case goes the other way, with female chef half-naked serving customers (for an extra payment)? There another hypocrisy.

Do customers get to eat off their chests?

You're one of those people who eat sushi off women's tummies, aren't you? :D

That's what I was thinking. Some of the posters here probably have pot bellies.

Such an absurd article for readers! Mentally sick.

This side of Japan is really strange, sometime entertaining too.

OH. im ordering asap. love a buff Japanese man! yummy. send him right over. im gay btw.

Totally gay gokai can tell you that this will be very popular among gay guys. Expect lots of orders!

Why not? A lot of delivery guys in Japan are well built as compared to the pencilneck salariman.

rampant sexism and treating men as no more than meat and sex objects......

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

So, a sweaty body passing you raw fish during an epidemic... brilliant idea. Of course, they probably have to wear masks while... shirtless...

Doesn't bother me one bit.

was just thinking this morning, when commenting on the article about measures to prevent 'outing' of 'sexual minorities', that I hadn't seen hide nor hair of Totally gay gokai for a while.... and here you are.... and as for your comment.... so they might not make it back to the sushi shop you mean? LOL

up to 10 orders a day ?

typo?

How horribly degrading for the men and the customers. And what is it with the collar and bow tie/ naked chest look? It’s ridiculous.

Hell yeah! I'm ordering!

Guilty as charged!! BUT I do bodybuild and I am bigger than any of these guys. Just that DAMN GUT

Steady there, sailor!

I never would have guessed!

¥7000+ for sushi, I would expect extras. And the guy top right.

If you want to have a reasonably toned gut like those guys, even with some fat it will still look better and pulled in, then I have a disgustingly simple solution based on old time strongmen workout. Lay angled on your bed and hold the corner of your mattress behind your bed for support, then do 100 slow and steady straight leg raises. You can do 50, 30 then 20 reps or whatever. I have been doing this every day and my beer gut looks much better and if I lose a bit of weight I have good abs even for a middle aged guy. Again, leg raises for high reps every day.

No, it's probably true. To be newsworthy, it only needs to exist. It doesn't need to be popular.

Bodybuilders are still seen as a bit of a joke in Japan, an attitude I am very fond of. They are not seen as being super manly or some blueprint other men must follow. Anabolic steriod use by ordinary men is rife in my country, the UK. It's on at least on a level with eating disorders in women.

Reckless- thanks for the advice mate! Will try that!

It's nice if a man has a nice body or a muscular build but what we woman want in a man is faithfulness, and dependability, a sense of humor, the ability to listen and a sense of style.

Not your type??, Oohhh so sorry..

LOOOOOOOOOL !!!...

Not quite the raw meat I think people want to imagine as they order and eat raw meat.

I’ve always thought bodybuilding is a kind of body dysphoria. There’s nothing wrong with toning up though.

Skinny

Nope. About right.

Having visited Nagoya in 1980's on board a freighter ship was charmed by the city.A real bold innovation in direct competition with the Geisha World. Ahoy !

If I pay them extra I wonder if they'll deliver to me here in Osaka!

I wonder if the real idea is to help fellow trainers who usually make money at gyms, but can’t under present circumstances.

oh dear! several people obviously didn't get the sarcasm (and social commentary, since if it was scantily-clad women, lots of people would've been crying sexism, objectification, and the like) in my comment yesterday.... LOL
