Here's a short follow-up on something we have talked about before and was somewhat known already, but now with some real confirmation. Those Japanese shops that advertise delivery health services but don't specifically state 'no gaijin' in their rules do tell their workers that they can just turn around and walk away when they reach a client's room and discover that he is not Japanese. Some non-Japanese residents of Japan can obviously speak Japanese fluently enough to fool the natives. During a interview process when a lady decides to join a Japanese shop, she can ask about how that particular shop handles non-Japanese clients. Their response in our case was simply to close the door and walk away. (This is a delivery health arrangement, where the girl will meet you at a hotel room or other location.) Message boards occasionally are buzzing with ladies who are discussing working for a agency (such as AM) where the money could be potentially better or sticking with a Japanese agency with less money per-client, but free from dealing with non-Japanese. Some ladies flat refuse to deal with any non-Japanese while some are open to the idea or see it as an adventure and chance to earn more. From our latest investigation, Japanese shops are seeing increased activity since the economy has turned slightly. Bonuses and salaries are up this year compared to the last few years, Japanese health shops are feeling the effect with increased activity. More non-Japanese are still turning to cheaper services, passing up more expensive escort services to save some additional yen. We are always looking for good stories about clients getting rejected from Japanese delivery health or other in/out-call services. In a continuous follow-up with our information gathering, further questions will be asked about the rationale for rejecting non-Japanese clients that are at least conversationally fluent and understand the rules of the shop, yet still get rejected for not being Japanese.
