Booth babes pose at the Tokyo Game Show which opened at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture on Thursday. More than 190 companies and organizations, including 34 exhibitors from overseas, are taking part in the show that runs through Sunday. The major drawcards are expected to be Sony's new portable game console and numerous game titles for Android-based smartphones. Mobile game site operator Gree Inc is taking part for the first time, while Nintendo is absent. Saturday and Sunday are open to the public.

"Booth babe?" lol.

I wonder if that's what they write on their resumes.

I just found my new avatar :)

I would have loved to be there to take a picture with all 3 of them.

wow, a feast of pics...................bloody well done, JT !! All is forgiven

I'd like to offer my sincere appreciation for the fine work done by JT's photographers!

A game show is a TV program. A games show is an expo for games.

Also, what's up with the Houdini poses?

I just LOVE that Capcom Girl in black: long legs, long boots, and black "Lederhosen", wow!

this kind of promotion would be appealing to otakus and perverts. I wonder why JT is so quick to post the most pervert picture on first page

Hot girls, but the idea of thousands of greasy-haired, anime figurine-collecting otaku leering at them is rather nauseating.

I second that!

Wow!

I am sure these women will be sick of men for several months after the end of this event!

OK, that does it, I was gonna skip it today, but Im off to the gym now. Thanks a bunch JT!

Almost softporn on Japan Today! If my wife finds out she will censor me more than the moderator...

Chills go down my spine at the thought of my daughter growing up to be one of these ‘booth babes’ — or a trade show companion, cigarette promotion girl, hostess club worker, celebrity idol (AV or otherwise), or any other of the plethora of dead-end, frivolous career opportunities ever available to young women in Japan. (But beats the hell the salary men have to endure, I suppose.)

LoveNot: "this kind of promotion would be appealing to otakus and perverts. I wonder why JT is so quick to post the most pervert picture on first page"

Oh, don't be such a sour puss! If "JT is so quick to post the most pervert picture on the first page" why don't you tell me when the last 'pervert' picture was? The last week of pics has been entirely devoid of 'pervert' pics (or pics that just upset you because they appeal to men) save possibly Miss Universe Japan, if you can argue that fits your criteria.

Let's face it, sex sells -- to BOTH sexes. There have been picture of men as well of late where women ogle and talk about physical appearance, and lest we forget many a female poster's comments during World Cup were solely about how good looking the men were. In fact, a certain 'LoveJapan's entire reason for liking a team was based on looks (I believe Ukraine was her 'favourite'). It doesn't only appeal to 'otakus and perverts', it appeals to gamers, and probably most heterosexual men.

I don't think any of these women is particularly stunning, especially given some of the outfits, but they're not at all bad to look at, and if I were to attend the event you'd bet I'd be looking plenty. At least at a games show, unlike a car show with the Race Queens, people can interact more with the women (I'm assuming) and afford to buy the products (games, not the ladies).

It's eye candy, same reason girls are used to promote cars.

A lot of them are university students just making a bit of extra cash. I wouldn't mind my daughter doing it, if she wanted, as long as she didn't let it interfere with her school work. Wouldn't want her flogging cigarettes though....

It might be the light, but these "girls" look a little old. Or maybe they are just unhealthy.

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

I think it is the lighting too Crunch-san. Some cool outfits though and hair styles. I wonder if there will be a huge Angry Birds booth. So addicting.

Tokyo Game Show is a big draw for Japan but all we get it a load of photos for the sexists to drool over.

I wonder what is going on in the minds of those girls for doing jobs like that. Pathetic.

and another thing - "girls" here are ALWAYS COLD!!! what`s up with those outfits? Getting paid makes them warm all of a sudden?

And the problem is?

my single exclusive vote to a violet babe (center) in the top row !

0 ( +1 / -1 )

spidapig24; The poblem is this. The Tokyo ame show brings in a lot of foreign tourists as it is known as the biggest and the best. People who may want to come to Japan may look at sites like this and conclude that the foreigenrs there are just interested in young girls scantily dressed. This event could show some interesting gaming pics but goes to the bottom of the barrel.

sillygirl; I agree, eating disorders are a big hting in Japan and a bit of a taboo subject.

Foxie, Japan is known as a mans society and this shows in the J media and in photos like these.

-4 ( +4 / -8 )

The "girls" found at this show is no different than the same at a car show in Europe or America.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

zichi; Don't think you have looked properly then, they would weigh 30-50% more than these women. These women are about 38-45KG.

-6 ( +2 / -8 )

There are plenty of young western women under weight, like the fashion shows. They actually look alright to me. At a western car show the girls would have a lot more breast and behind sticking out.

I have no problems with the Tokyo Game Show or the Anime Show or any of them.........

,the old man gave only a cursary glance at the pics said .. um.. and went back to watching Coronation Street

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Steve,

I think a man could see a woman as a sex object regardless of the amount of clothing they wear. Been down to the beach this summer? You'll see much more flesh there. Guess the burka with kimono patterns might solve the problem, but probably, just like the jeans, they'll only cut holes in them, in all the wrong or right bits?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Oh lord! The moralists who seem to think morals only involves sex are attacking the board again. The really funny thing is that when they see some female skin, the concept of sex overwhelms them. They saw the enemy, and it was themselves!

3 ( +6 / -3 )

zichi; You like many other fails to fully understand what i am saying. As for the beach well that argument is teh easiest to beat. People go to the beach to sunbathe and swim. I jave NEVER said women should be convered up.

Tokyo game show is a massive event showcasing new products yet we only see photos of scantily clad women.

-5 ( +3 / -7 )

Steve, love....

didn't you know? I have such scantily clad-style outfits, long boots, tons of sensual lingerie, including corsets, garters, etc. I'm a vivid collector of those. but you see, only Mr.BlueWitch holds the key to my kingdom. This is only for his pleasure. Having said that, now you know why I wouldn't dress like this in public. The best spectator is at home. (^_^)

Kawaii ^_^

1 ( +3 / -2 )

I am a male... and am not going to be embarrassed at my admiration of the opposite sex. They are scantly dressed...so what...their choice, my benefit!

3 ( +6 / -3 )

Steve, there are plenty of reports and articles, with photo's of the products, about what is on show and available in the coming months from the Game Show.

People go to the Game Show for the products not for the girls.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

zichi; Really, why all the pics of girls here then? In otehr countries game shows don't have loads of scantily dressed women, how queer!!!

-9 ( +1 / -9 )

That girl to the right, does she have pointy ears? Is she an elf? :) That must be related to some game she shows.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Des, I may be able to answer if i understood what you are talking about,. No time in teh sun, the event is held indoors.

-8 ( +1 / -8 )

Actually, I only now noticed that all three of them have their pants open. It is probably a bit too sexy for a public event.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

The games industry is massive,and this show promotes the games and tech.Showing the girls mainly tells us about the main interests of the Japan Today staff.Or maybe showing an image of just one companies game would be favouritism.

The real reason I think is that JT knows exactly what images get us all worked up and posting,and that just keeps the forum alive and healthy,speaking of which I think the two Capcaom girls look great ^v^

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Something very naughty about the main pic with the 3 lovely ladies. This is too hot to handle! Oh and i love boots. Yeah i saw those 2 with the boots too!

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Christ, why bother wearing any clothes?

When is JT going to cater to straight women and gay men? Showing photos of PM Noda doesn't count.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Love the guys, but dont you think their shorts are a bit too provocative? Cant see too well, but seems to me as if their front zippers are undone. To me that is a simple message of Ive done the first part, now you finish it please.

@Lucabrasi:

well, if from no-one else, you get a big thumbs up from me for that comment! ;) Thank you!

Scrawny birds with boney butts and chests. No thanks.

Give me Rochelle from The Saturdays over these 'women' any day.

Would be like laying with a skin covered deck-chair.

Has anyone complaining about these girls seen a Pirelli calendar or been to a US Lowrider convention? This isn't a Japan issue and I believe it is worse overseas. Forget the insults of the girls, why not target the people who go to ogle?

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

These women are walking advertisements. I imagine a future where you'll find women dressed as ads walking all over town. Maybe some men, too, if anyone really wants to look at one of those.

Hey, for those, who have bad vision. Learned how to view bigger (full size) photos. Don't know if it's old news. Difference is mmm... So:

You choose a photo from a group below and click on it. A mid-size photo opens; If you use IE, skip this step. In Mozilla right click -> View Image; The address will be something like http://www.japantoday.com/images/size/x420/2011/09/TGS.jpg Now simply change x420 to x and hit enter.

Works with all images.

Moderators: if this breaks some rules (I couldn't find out), please remove the post and let me know.

You were going to say: "Forever beach ready bodies". Right? ;)

smithinjapan, you are sort of prudish and no it is not meant as an insult. go to any beach in American and you will see more flesh than this picture. well guess they have to do what it takes to get traffic in these shows. Wonders is those are tattoos or paint?
