I hope that when I return in the fall to show my lady friend from Toronto around the country (and Tokyo) that she finds it interesting, titillating, too, but at our age, she'll probably toss out a one-liner that makes me choke. Can't wait.

Some of these men in the picture can be taken as drag queens in other countries. No joke.

If 97lb sexually ambiguous walking haircuts are your thing, thats the place to be.

Absolutely brilliant. Glad to see nothing has changed since I left Japan.

Prostitution is illegal in Japan just like gambling LOL

Prostitution is legal in most countries....as long as you film it.

I believe the correct term is "hosto". But what do they (and hostesses for that matter) do when they can't get "customers"? Do the clubs pay them a minimum wage? What about job security?

See ladies, men too can be viewed like a piece of meat! I am shocked... no, not really.

The women who pay to drink with these scrawny junior groovers need psychiatric counseling.

There will come a day when youth will pass away, what will they say about me? When the end comes, I know: I was just a gigolo. Life goes on without me.
