The job of a 여성구인구직 nana, or maid, is also one of Japans remarkable experiences. Japans flourishing hostess industry is the most profitable one out there, which can mean upwards of $100,000 per month for a single individual.
While outside of Japan, host clubs might not exist that much, but hostess bars definitely exist. Due to the Japanese fetishization for anything foreign, many Japanese customers seek out hosts who appear to be of a foreign appearance at these clubs. Host clubs are usually found in the most populous areas in Japan, with notable numbers being found in areas such as Kabukicho, in Tokyo, and in Umeda and Namba, in Osaka.
Not many know this, but there is one website entirely in Japanese which helps you to browse available Host Clubs in your local area in Japan. It is a little known fact that there is a site that has listings of host clubs around cities in Japan. Japan is pretty iron-fisted when it comes to working illegally for these host clubs, and if someone is caught, expulsion and criminal charges are highly probable.
While host clubs in Tokyo usually have designated men outside on the streets begging customers to enter their clubs, it is common for some hosts to be sent outside to look for customers, which are called catching (kiyatsuchi, kyatchi), but they are often younger, less experienced hosts. There are also available house hosts clubs, in which roles are reversed; men walk in and pay for a couple drinks and a flirty chat with a hostess. A hostess club hires mostly female staff, and serves men looking for drinks and a discreet conversation.
Hosts are male equivalents to hosts, being male performers for whom women pay a fee for their services, though usually they are not visited by post-work nomikais with their colleagues as hostess clubs may be. Hosts and hostses in America do not embody the same culture that they do in Japan; they are there to serve your food and take care of needs that any decent restaurant needs to address, but they are not there to listen to your problems, initiate conversation, or attempt to make you fall in love with them.
To work at a typical Japanese-style clubhouse as a host or hostess, a certain level of Japanese is required: most often, conversational fluency is a minimum. One possible benefit is being multilingual, as well as knowing Japanese, since sometimes foreigners may be visiting a host or hostess club. For those that are unaware, English Cafes are staffed by English speakers (Hosts) to foster English conversations with customers that come.
These will give you a sense of some of the hosts personalities, as well as the vibes at the cafe. As with both clubs, conversations can be as varied as you would like, however, most hosts will make it their policy to keep things classy. You will be treated to photos of the clubs hosts doing professional modelling work for mens magazines and fashion brands.
A clubs host (hosatu kurabu) is where women go when they want to pay to have conversations and drinks with men. A guest club (hosutokurabu, hosutokurabu) is like a hostess club, except that the female customers pay for the company of the men. While drinking alcohol may not necessarily be required, clubs are extremely uncommon for hiring individuals with either not very high alcohol tolerances or no ability to drink alcohol in general, since the focus is on having guests purchase drinks to enjoy with the host or hostess, with staff members typically receiving a commission on how many bottles the guests open throughout the evening. The average yearly compensation of a host or hostess greatly differs depending on ones location at the club, reputation at the club, and the types of customers.
If the host or hostess gets repeat customers–those who ask them for them in particular–and his or her position within the club increases, then his or her compensation is higher. As a result, hosts are willingly commodifying themselves, and feeding Japans clubhouse profits. In doing so, Hosts hope to better position themselves against the labor ethics and status of the traditional Japanese male Hegemonic Icon, The Salaryman. Even as they try to justify their reopening moves, the feeling that they are technically breaking Tokyos guidelines, though, has made many Host clubs reluctant to publicly tout that they are now reopening.
Many of Kabukichos host clubs moved toward reopening this month in order to protect their employees livelihoods. One Kabukicho host club, for example, declined to be interviewed for this story, as it was afraid of a negative reaction that might come from it opening, even though they had been asked not to. Under Tokyos guidelines on the Roadmap, indicating gradual steps to rebuild, hosts clubs and other businesses that are susceptible to shutting down customer contacts, like bar hosts, are classified as facilities where the demand to shut down has yet to be mitigated.
At only 26, Rolands charm is said to be the most successful of the hosts in Kabukicho, an area in Tokyos Shinjuku district that has the highest concentration of hosts and hostess bars. As a result, the charming Roland is said to be the most well-paid host of Kabukicho, and he certainly uses this money to lead a luxurious lifestyle. The charming Roland is said to have spent about 10 million yen on face adjustments, and says that he spends around 200,000 yen ($1,800) a month maintaining him, and with good reason.
Birthdays are, of course, when customers shell out the most cash on their favorite hosts, but The Charming Roland has been able to rake in up to 42 million yen during a normal month, too. Apparently, last years birthday saw customers spend 10 million yen — over $88,000 — on him in only three hours.
