'Only beautiful girls' are the service provider or 'Only beautiful girls' are admitted to the shop?

Isn't that the same thing?

Yeah, right!

'Only beautiful girls' are admitted to the shop?

No only 'entertaiment'. Whatever that is.

economy must be tough if their advertising to get foreigners...

contradiction - not adult but only beautiful? Why not hire oba-sans who have been massaging for years?

minor typo: "entertaiment"

That's interesting, as JA Cruise said - advertising to get the gaijin dollar. I wonder if the "beautiful girls" who perform this wonderful "Aroma Massage" service are also gaijin?

I think the bigger contradiction is the "come here" noted on the sign. Talk about mixed signals.

"Aroma Massage". You mean the place stinks?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

ummm if you see the Japanese sign, it is talking about that "ear cleaning" stuff that was going on last year, which WAS a cover story for adult entertainment.......so the English is probably just to throw poor dumb gaijins off the track of what they are actually supposed to be getting?

That's why I love Japan....very innocent.

I'm going to guess that only beautiful girls refers to customers, ie it's for women only.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Maybe it is something like this : Only beautiful girls work here to provide aroma massage for customers. Massage only ,no sex.

shameful, shameful...this country is going down the sewer...yuck!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Dang it, I was looking for adult entertainment...

0 ( +0 / -0 )

"come here :-)"...and I thought it was JUST an aroma massage.

Attracting the tourists.

You have to love it.....

Does "Aroma" actually mean "healthy"???

0 ( +0 / -0 )

So what's the original sign behind this one say?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Sorry, but looking at the Japanese signs on the pole to the right it sounds to me to be dodgy. Even the 'ear cleaning' says, "Hizamakura mimikaki", which is to say, you lie on a woman's lap while she does it.

Isn't there three 'n's in entertainment.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

japanese english is always great fun:)

Who needs to be entertained? Many just want a happy ending.

Its cute ~ a nice photo of the day.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Well, if they are drop dead beautiful....

0 ( +0 / -0 )

This is really a perverse method. Consider that these beautiful girls don't make any effect on you during the massage ^^ how to retain his exitation whereas these flavors can be aphrodisiac? :)

Spelling error : entertaiment

Enter Tai Ment :-)

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Should be a kanji sign too. Because we all know the all Asian countries have two types of massage. Real massage and " Happy Ending " massage.

Spelling error : entertaiment

Enter Tai Ment :-)

That's what I said.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

"Only beutiful girls" and "Not Adult Entertaiment" just doesn't seem right being on the same sign. Hmmmmmmm?

Of course. Another great photo for Kong. He has a keen eye for the odd signs and sights in Japan.

snicker, chuckle I don't know where to begin with this pic.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Is that an order, 'Come here' ?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

if I didnt know better, I'd say what 10y.o. wrote this?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

This is also a funny spelling, "Enter tai ment" means "Hairi tai" :D

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Of course, if it had started with "Well Come", that'd have me very unsure.

How do they massage your aroma?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Personally I consider beautiful girls adult entertainment.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

economy must be tough if their advertising to get foreigners

Yeah, I can remember when the touts wouldn't dare speak to a gaijin. Things are slow all over.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

So help me on this... do they massage you with aromas or do they massage your aroma for you (eww!)? Did they really mean what we here call "aroma therapy" (which, to me, just seems like an excuse to sell scented candles.)

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Relax, it's just a back rub with scented oils.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

So the spelling is not perfect, but the bit about beautiful girls would be catching my eye. As for "aroma message" well that is a new one to me.

One has to wonder if the people with said sign might have competitive signs to obtain more business?????

I used to get full-body massages (of the non-adult entertainment type) out in California. They used scented oils as well. IMHO the massage itself was much more relaxing than the scents ever were.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Most "not an adult entertainment" places are just the opposite. They just have the sign posted to keep cops away.
