Prostitution in Japan has existed throughout the country's history. While the Anti-Prostitution Law of 1956 states that "No person may either do prostitution or become the customer of it," loopholes, liberal interpretations and loose enforcement of the law have allowed the sex industry to prosper and earn an estimated 2.3 trillion yen ($24 billion) per year.
In Japan, the "sex industry" (fuzoku 風俗, literally "public morals") is not synonymous with prostitution. Since Japanese law defines prostitution as "intercourse with an unspecified person in exchange for payment," most fuzoku offer only non-coital services, such as conversation, dancing, or bathing, to remain legal.
NOTE: But remember "Prostitution Selling/Buying" is illegal in Japan. You just need to know what prostitution mean.
May not be Tokyo ... But strip Clubs (Gentlemen's Clubs) are disappearing in all over Japan. It used to be one of the very popular entertainment in Japan but many places like that outside of Japan are closing.
The image above is a strip club called ROCKZA (Pronouced Rokku Za) located in Asakusa area of Tokyo Japan. Rokku ... ６区 ... It means 6th district but sounds like "Rock" music.
This is where "Beat Takeshi (Takeshi Kitano)" started as a stand up. He was an elevator boy.
Donburi is a Japanese "rice bowl dish" consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Donburi meals are served in oversized rice bowls also called donburi.

Lessons are best suited to those who have basic understanding of hiragana and katakana alphabets before moving on to the more advanced grammar and particle lessons. Grammar lessons focus on learning about writing and creating more complex sentences and most lessons will not use romaji (Japanese sounds written with roman letters). Kanji is used in the lessons with hiragana and English translations provided.
