In Japanese night life, there are two types of club. One is the place that has music, dancing like the place I wrote about in this post. The other club means hostess bar. I am not sure but only Asian countries have hostess bars? Japan has them, Korea has them, Thailand has them.
In Japan there are different types of hostess bars. The most popular place would be cabakura. (stand for cabaret club). It's set charge is usual 5,000-9,000yen. This is a cabakura in Roppongi. In some cabakura you can check the girl's face in front of the entrance like this. There are foreign hostess bars, a well known one is Philippine pub (this site writes about it in English), we hear about illegal work so often. And some have western hostesses. I remember the incident that a English hostess was killed, many people didn't understand why she worked as hostess in Japan because she was a flight attendant for BA. Many of the highest class hostess bars are in Ginza. I think these high class bars are used for business, after-hours business contact. Because the price is unbelievable. Drink one glass of alcohol and talk to a few hostesses. It would be half a million yen, "500,000 yen". I tried to find such club on the internet. However these types of place don't have any HP. This site shows some picture of a club in Ginza. But I don't know they can't be said the highest class. Like I wrote in this post (later part! not maid cafe), the hostesses that work at such a luxury bar have skill for entertaining, conversation, knowledge to talk to men, I heard. And also they need to keep their beauty, I found some Ginza hostess comments from the same bar in Gym site. (big mama, second mama, popular hostess. It'll not that easy being an Ginza hostess.
And do you know we have HOST club. Yes it means guys welcome women at bar. Strange? Now a drama show about host club "Yaoh" is on TV channel. (English information). This drama is originated from manga, story is the show is about an ex-gangster who enters the world of "host" bars and works hard to be the No.1 host. Here is an interesting English article about hosts. And this is a host club portal site. Wow a lot of clubs!! But all guys are same type...(sorry looks wired to me :-p)
I read and heard mainly hostesses enjoy host clubs, it would be a pleasure to be on the guest side. And also just regular office ladies go to host club as their virtual love. What? Do I understand it? No way, usually I don't like to talk to strangers. Why I have to pay for that. Yesterday we have news that Extortion threat leads to arrest of host club five. Hmm he was not ex-gangster, college students of famous school. orz..
