Attending a “Host Club” is an extreme form of entertainment for local women in red light districts, unique to Japan.

Your guide, Manami conducted interviews with male staff called “hosts” to learn their personal stories, in an attempt to reduce common prejudice against them.

Through introducing host clubs, she wishes to exchange with her guests different views on hospitality, human relationships, Japanese culture, and prejudice.

Hosts drink with female guests, entertaining them and treating them just like princesses so that they feel special. (In return for fun and a (platonic) romantic time, bills are usually very expensive. )

Regardless of the notorious impressions surrounding them, hosts have high professionalism in hospitality, excellent communication skills and respect to others. They are super active on social media too. Hosts are also known by their cool looks and very unique fashion.

  *This is NOT in person class but on-line live workshop. 

  *Participants must be aged 18+ to join this tour.


 *Talks about what host clubs, and who hosts, are.

 *Shares the story of Manami's failure at a host club.

 *Quiz time: you will see pictures of 8 active hosts.
