Hooters girls and their trainers from the U.S. pose in the restaurant's first Japan store in Tokyo's Akasakamitsuke. The restaurant has 30 Japanese and 10 foreign waitresses. At left in the front row is LeAngela Davis, the current Miss Hooter International. Hooters Japan opens for dinner Monday night and as part of the opening campaign until Nov 30, one lucky diner will win a Chevrolet Camaro. The winner, who must be a Hooters member, will be chosen by raffle. See related story in Executive Impact.

How many Japanese are actually in this photo (you know 100% pure)? Yanks in 1st row for sure and the rest haffu with a ton of filipino and others? The two back row on the ends are nice but they dont come off as all Japanese either... Best of luck and a few of you look like you skipped senior year of school.....

SeasonedVet... According to the unwritten rule, if one if one parent of grandparent is not Japanese they are not 100% pure. Sad but true that being 100% pure Japanese is a big deal here, the rest are beneath them including the writer (talentos draw a different mentality). What is cool about this new gig in Japan is the girls and management are bilingual, westernized and trained by the Americans. Something tells me this is going to be a smash hit and I could see myself easily investing in one someday. Was expecting a ton of JAL flight attendants with big tops.

This will never work. It is not nearly, what's the word, I don't want to use "perverted", but the right one doesn't come to mind. Let's say, Hooters does not have the fetishistic twist that would make this kind of thing work in Japan.

Sadly, we all know that that "Hooters" would become very, very, very popular if it was staffed by girls under 16 years old (and renamed to "Hooterless").

I am sure the current offering will prove to be more popular with gaijin guests.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Skip the pub / TGIF and head to Hooters with the mates? Sounds like a plan to me.

"I think they will have trouble competing with family restaurants, izakaya, hostess clubs, or "health" clubs."

Family restaurants has been on the decline for the past 12 years - look at the Skylark group and Denny's for evidence. Izakaya is a slightly different market in terms of food and atmosphere but Hooters can take some of this business depending on location. Hostess and Health Clubs are mizushobai and completely different business - they are not restaurants.

I can't see Hooters lasting long in Japan once the novelty has worn off but one never knows.

TGIF seem to be doing okay. They are in the same family restaurant category and I think Hooters is actually a better franchise.

Hooters will be a successful franchise here. There are way too many sukebe in this country for it to fail. That and the # of gaijin frequenting this place will make it more than worth while.

I just want to know what the prices will be. Case in point, I can go to Outback in the states and dinner for 2 would cost about $45-$50. Here, the same meal would run you close to $100.

A 20 piece wing meal in the USA is $15. I wonder what it will cost in Tokyo.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

@Alphaape: What is the point in asking about the price?? Once again we have people on the forum thinking in Dollars when you are here in Japan earning Yen. Who cares what it costs, no-one is going there for the food are they? Get on the cheapest flight back to the Mid-West and camp out in Outback buddy. Negative comment with no point.

Actually, could someone explain what Hooters is? Everyone seems to know, but it is not common knowledge here. Is it like Denny's? Or more like a "fashion health" club (that is, "touchy-feely club") in Kabukicho? Since I'm totally gay, I won't be going there to look at women, but if the food has an American taste...

Shinjukuboy: Hooters is just a restaurant, kind of like TGI Friday's, but the gimmick they use to get people to come to the restaurant is that the waitresses all wear that uniform (nude tights, short shorts, and a tank top). Generally the waitresses have big breasts, although it's not strictly a requirement. You can't touch them. You can only look at them. It is considered a "family restaurant," but naturally some people choose not to bring their kids there or avoid the restaurant on the principle that the uniform is degrading.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

What's the deal with this shop ? It's like a snack, and Japan has 4 million snacks already. The food will probably be yucky, the beer more expensive.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

And actually, looking at the picture, a lot of those girls don't have big breasts (difficult without surgery if you're thin). But they do have fantastically pushy-uppy bras. But in my experience, guys can't really tell the difference ... (hint: Three girls on the front row definitely have big racks. The rest are moderate-to-small.)

Cos, it's not a snack bar. They aren't going to sit there and talk to you and pour drinks. They are just waitresses with skimpy outfits and big breasts.

Nothing like a bunch of women showing off skin to garner over 70 comments. It's interesting that none of the girls look like typical Japanese joshi-daisei (uni students). Perhaps they're expecting half of their clientèle to be gaijin-san.

Do you mean the alternate meaning of gross to say big, big, big? I guess it's obvious that are bigger then average.

@rainman1, the point of my comments, it's just a resturant, with bad food actually. I know it it Japan and the prices are in yen, but here's a memo for you, they grow chickens in Japan, and if you probably want to get technical about it, I bet that they import some of the food for the Hooters in the US from overseas too. So why is there going to be such a high price for it here in Japan.

@nrthlondon, no I don't own (or rent a trailer), and as far as watching racing, better that than some loser sport like soccer.

@Alphaape: Yes - It's just another American franchised restaurant serving bad food. Same as TGI's, Hard Rock, Outback etc. Why is it more expensive here? Have you checked the price of rent, tax and labour cost in Japan recently? Tokyo is the most expensive city in the world, even more now that the Yen is so strong. What is with Americans coming here and comparing everything to a dollar price in the USA...which is exactly what you have just said again above. Food in all the above places (TGI, Outback) etc is relatively cheap in Japan for what it is. If you want a cheap meal go to your local Ramen/Yakitori shop where you will eat a lot healthier! What the American themed restaurants charge here is no different to a restaurant in New York charging $20 for a bowl of Ramen.

Sure they will - they'll have their "fans" who'll recognize them in street clothes no problems.

I predict they'll have a really good first 6 months, then a slump. After about 2 years, they'll Japanize the menu and it'll end up more or less as an expensive US themed izakaya.

You are right and wrong most "family" restaurants are on the decline with the exception of Saiseriya which has been expanding and has very good profits mostly because of its "service" that is basically like most western countries (without the attitude) of yes we can make changes or serve you plate A before plate B.

If Hooters sticks to good food and good service they will be around for some time to come, if they do like too many foreign franchises here and end up "Japanising" the menu and being inflexible on service and orders then they are doomed!

Yawns! I do not see the attraction. The food and service is not going to be any better when the servers were little clothes. Looks like another way to separate a man from his money. About the Car, ick getting sodai gomi as a "prize"? This sounds like the result of testosterone poisoning.

There is always someone out there to hypersensitize something like this into a "degrading thing for women".

As a regular at one of these places in the U.S., I can tell you that while they "honey", "sweetie", and "sugar" you up in the store, they aren't going home with you (unless you're already their boyfriend). It's a restaurant that serves food and drink, not women. I've always said the uproar over maid cafes is incomprehensible to me because they're no different than the Hooter's chain - cute girls playing a part to sell food and merchandise while wearing a special costume based on a theme. For the Hooters chain, the theme is "tank tops, hot pants, white socks, and white sneakers". They're saleswomen, not skanks.

Yuri, steve, what does an overpriced restaurant with the main attraction being served by bulked out men wearing tiny outfits have to do with Hooters? Ha ha!

Sarge, the only attraction is the big busted women. The food is lousy and overpriced. What does it have for me?

"...overpriced restaurant..."

Is that unusual in Japan?

"The food is lousy..."

Lots of comments like this from people who've never even been there.

I have been to a HOOTERS in the US about 10 years ago and they do have some really good food and I enjoyed my food, but the waitresses surely got a raise out of me. I want to go there during the holidays and take my wife there too.

Is is just me or the 30 Japanese girls that they have hired look like illegal immigrants from South East Asia... 20bux for a burger and 10 dollars for....

Mr. Manager, good move on opening the joint, but please refrain from doing hiring any further. Is it that hard to find a good looking girl in Japan? Come on!

Yuri, if you've never eaten there then how do you know the food is "lousy". When My husband and I were in Houston in June we ate at a Hooters and the food was good. Just because the food is American does not equate with lousy. I am Japanese Yuri, you know what I am saying. Tone down the hate dear.

ikkochan, laughs it is that being a women I get no pleasure from looking at women. So the sight of a waitress in a tight shirt is not enough to pay extra for the meal. Hate has nothing to do with it. It is not the American food I would find "lousy". Though perhaps it might be ok but still it is more expensive than a hamburger at another place. Me if I had a husband, he could only go in there with a blindfold over his eyes ;)

If I were singe, I take all of the above.

But even if I were single I would not eat at Hooters. The food is far from healthy and it is overpriced. You are paying the high price for the view. You can get the same view for free on a sunny day on the Ginza.

Also, the name Hooters leaves much to be desired of as regard 21 century sensibilities. "Hooters" is a slang for women's breasts. You can date this slang expression when you consider it refers to the rubber bulb of a horn that used to be used on automobiles a century ago. You pressed the bulb and the horn went "hoot, hoot." I imagine this slang term was made up by inexperienced farm boys. Anyone with experience knows that women's breasts, no matter how big, do not go "hoot, hoot," and neither does the woman to whom the breasts happen to belong.

The only reason I might remotely consider eating at Hooters is if they ban smoking and nothing better is available. I mean if my usual non-smoking restaurants are packed.

Frankly, I think these girls should be working in another place. Not at a restaurant. Savouring the food is something we humans have been gifted with.Have our expectations become that cheap that we need an atmosphere full of adrenaline to enjoy that food? Add value to the food by making the food, delicious, healthy rather than try tricky stuff. If it was targeted at the Jmarket, sorry. But Jmen know where to go for that, not to hooters.

I wonder if hooters would hire a nice looking transvestite who not only shows cleavage, but "bulge"..

I'd like to go there with my husband.. I don't mind there are pretty girls with big boobs there, and I don't mind my husband looking at them because I know he will think I'm far BETTER than those girls (BIG smile) :)) He's done a pretty good job making me feel secure and being around pretty women wouldn't make me feel insecure with my honey.

I don't think the food at hooters actually is any better than TGIF, and I don't think TGIF is cheap at all... but I like both Hooters and TGIFriday's.. they have some pretty good food (not all, but some are pretty good).

fishy, the best place for American chains is in America. The ones in Japan are not as good.

This is one of the few times I am going to have to agree with YuriOtani. Well somewhat agree at least. Although to say this is any different then let's say a maid cafe, something similar is a bit of a stretch. Hooters is really pretty tame in comparison to some other chains like Coyote Ugly though. I would think they will try to tailor their menu somewhat to Japanese tastes as well. I mean any good restaurant will do that if they want to be around very long. I would also like to add there chains that do very well in Japan. Few and far between of coarse but do exist. This is the very first Hooters here so I have no doubt HQ will be keeping a very close eye on how well it is doing. It's no cheap venture starting any new chain franchise especially here no doubt lol.

I am sure they went to quite a bit of trouble to even get here. HQ must have felt it had a reasonable chance of doing well. I doubt they would've put the time and energy into to doing so if were not the case. On the flip side I can understand Yuri's reservations though. The food is good as we have eaten there quit a few times. Although is it appropriate for the location and will it cater to Japanese tastes and sensibilities? I also have some reservations having foreign staff on board to. For training purposes OK but not as a permanent fixture. The girls I am sure are quit good and likely were hand picked but do they speak Japanese? Being overpriced is really not an issue if the food is good. Not to mention that this is Japan right? You have a reputation to uphold as worlds most expensive destination!
