Pleased to please you

Feature : Maiko and geisha are enduring icons of Japanese culture and of the culture of hospitality that is ingrained in this country. In the modern country there are other forms of hospitality. This month KS goes inside a hostess bar that employs Western women, takes coffee in a maid café and finds out that men are also pouring the drinks.

Please direct any questions, comments or rants/raves about the KS site to the webmaster.
