5:21 am
years. what's behind this apparent trend in japan is the waning interest in romance and sexual relationships and the plummeting birth rate a purely japanese phenomenon or is it a sign of things to come. in tokyo a metropolitan region of more than thirteen million you'd think it would be easy to find a soulmate but instead new business models are taking the place of romance like tyros partnership rental agency. business is booming and getting better all the time. it's less if you're a woman who's very busy with work if you don't have the time to meet someone or if you haven't had a relationship with a man you know well thanks to our service you can experience the pleasure of being with someone with us but i think. agency rules prohibit sex between clients and rental boyfriends his only job is to be an enjoyable date and help the woman

5:26 am
a few weeks earlier to talk to a young man she doesn't know unless she accidentally falls in love with her therapist. in tokyo there are armies of young men up for rent some like rico play the role of public boyfriend others work in bars and make conversation with lonely women at the establishment even use them as they're selling point. what's behind all of this is it lack of time shame or fear recent study found that more than half of singles in japan don't have a friend of the opposite sex. but twenty four in a way has never had a relationship for him women are a mystery. so he's decided to try something new.
5:27 am
will come just come with me. think about is what is called a cuddle cafe a lounge where you can pay to spend a few minutes in the arms of a young woman. you can start off your shoes by. dozens of small alcoves welcome the clients who are prepared to spend large sums of money for a short moment of comfort here you pay sixty euros an hour just to lie down next to a hostess on the bill can quickly add up you have to pay more euro's for her to hold you in her arms for three minutes or sixteen euro's to rest your head in her lap hello nice to meet you hello. flukey will be tending to in a way today here minutes mean money so her time. is never far away. from now we have sixty minutes take a look at our services. little. one quarter i'm spoiled for choice here of course because of that they're not going to head on lab is one

5:29 am
the way it works in the mire to go to where ever you want anything is fine and. reassured in a way finally let some self slip into conversation. when i was in high school i started to like catch on the singer. but why are girls fans of female singers. what do you actually like is it watching a cute girl and the atmosphere of the concert if. i like it all they're all really entertaining. more entertaining than a boy band. half. one hour of coddling in a way seems to have developed a taste for female contact. your. archly was very nice. until now i had never thought to do something like this.
5:30 am
i thought i would contrary to what i had imagined real girls aren't so bad i really liked it more than i would have come up with. the couple café doesn't only draw inexperienced men like you no way he also tends to many japanese men who have no one to talk to. the people who come here are people who have problems and you can't talk about them to their colleagues their superiors not even their friends. or it's people who want to meet a girl dressed up as amanda heroine like me. but not every fantasy is catered to sexual contact is off limits. and. before entering the room. the customer is informed of the rules so incidents are very rare. at the end of the session in a way is finally allowed
5:31 am
a few seconds of embrace. if you prefer to stay seated for the hug right. so come on. thank you. both thank you very much i'm happy to have met you too. i had a great time thank you so much. thank you see you soon i hope. in a way it's an experience with women isn't just you to shyness he tends to prefer video game heroines to women of flesh and blood. i'm with real girls not because i don't know what they're thinking. you know they could lie to me while smiling sweetly or not at all the same with their friends behind my back they could criticize me. whereas girls in video games would never
5:32 am
betray me because the men who create the games have been invented their ideal women acquitted. when he's not working in a coal center in a way lives in a fifteen square meter apartment where he spends hours in front of a screen it's a lifestyle that suits him well. so it's a good skier i don't really feel the urge to be in love for get married i can't even imagine i. prefer being alone and spending my time playing video games without reading monger games. i don't know so i don't really look at the future. on the canals. this afternoon in a way he's meeting up with some friends they'd never had a romantic relationship either all thank. god that i

seven floors are dedicated to sex and masturbation. one of the role. model and. the most popular programs for men the tender the pretty lubricated masturbation tube the sex toys a huge hit since two thousand and seven moment two million of them have been sold in japan at five euros a piece. in a way and his friends are part of a generation that seems to be turning its. back on the real world it's hard to imagine that the demographic trends here will change any time soon one reason why young people are engrossed in video games rather than human relationships could be because the traditional family model is losing its appeal. husband and her children
5:35 am
are a middle class families they have a two bedroom apartment in the tokyo suburbs. and here children i got you something and some sweets. yoko is forty five years old she became a mother later in life because she valued her career in japan women generally give up work to look after their children seventy percent of japanese mothers leave their job after their first child yoko was an interpreter and hesitated to give it all up. if. it's difficult. i didn't really want to get married yet. but then i wanted children. today fewer and fewer japanese women are willing to sacrifice their careers traditionally only their husband works during the one nine hundred ninety s. the country experienced an economic crisis which spelled the end of job security.
5:36 am
husband yasser nouri is a civil servant he says this economic upheaval had a lasting impact on the younger generation. young men are under a great deal of economic pressure on the economic crisis has led to many changes in japanese society and it's made starting a family seem unappealing. and you know any case times of change these days you're not under as much pressure to marry. another thing that's made parenthood unappealing is that in japan children rule the roost for many parents that spells the end of intimacy. everything is organized to focus on the children and then come the parents. becoming a family is not very exciting of course we love each other. but we've become a dad and a mom. with children. not a couple so. there are lots of couples who don't have sex.
