Random Japanese Fact of the Day Prt.20

The first “cuddle cafes” opened in Tokyo in 2012. Called Soine-ya (literally “sleep-together shop”), they allow male customers to sleep next to a woman for a fee. Strictly no funny business allowed, admission alone will set you back about $25.Options start with a 20-minute nap and range up to 10 hours, or a very full night's rest. Prices vary considerably, with the lowest option fetching about $40 and the highest commanding the hefty price of $400. In addition to napping, customers can order services ranging from "girl pats customer on the back" to “stroking the girl’s hair for three minutes.” Creepy or curious - you decide. It's undoubtedly weird, however.

I think so too I have also heared that people are too busy to invest time in a relationship because of their career. Or that potential partners are unsatisfied with the time they would get to spend together, so using the services of a cuddle cafe is at least a bit of a substitute.

There's a Japanese TV series (ドラマ) about a female version of this. I do not think it exists in reality, but the series is fun: http://asianwiki.com/Shima_Shima
