There are only a select number of jobs in this world that make me go WTF!? The job of a male japanese host is one of them. A report by Vocative goes into the life of Hikaru Aizawa, who is supposedly the best male host in all of Japan. He claims to make up to $200,000 USD a night from his clients.
Women basically pay to hang out with Aizawa, including going out for dinners, drinking at the car, and other activities. Sex is not guaranteed, and its said that women mainly use these services to fill emotional voids.
Aizawa, whom is a former salesman, said his biggest lesson was that people dont buy your product because theyre good, they buy it because they can trust you. He applied his sales skills when selling himself to women. Whenever he and a client goes to a sushi bar, they order Omakase, meaning Chefs Choice and it usually includes the best and most expensive catches of the day.
Everything he has in his house are gifts from clients including
Limited edition brand name shoes
Watch that cost up to $50,000 USD
A $7,000 bottle of Japanese Soju.
So ladies, next time youre in Japan and would like to pay for the company of a prince charming, youll know who to call. Check out the full mini-documentary below:
