Getting My Gaijin Up (Again)

A Facebook friend posted this link on her page…..http://www.gaikokujin-rental.jp/

Its link to a rent-a foreigner  by the hour service offered in Japan.  This service brings  to me, a visual of what the hostess/host world calls a ‘dohan’, or paid date.

Personally, it smacks of the latent racism a non-Japanese resident experiences in Japan and is another sad example of how Japanese society continues to marginalize the role of those non-Japanese who make Japan their home.

Here?  Yes, there are pay by the hour ‘escort ‘ services available. Services which also tread a very fine, murky line between an escort service and prostitution.

Again scratch the modern Japanese veneer and you’ll still find ちょん髷&褌.
