Schoolgirls for Sale in Japan


Japan’s obsession with cutesy culture has taken a dark turn, with schoolgirls now offering themselves for “walking dates” with adult men. Last year the US State Department, in its annual report on human trafficking, flagged so-called joshi-kosei osanpo dates (that’s Japanese for “high school walking”) as fronts for commercial sex run by sophisticated criminal networks.

In our exclusive investigation, VICE News host Simon Ostrovsky will bring you to one of Tokyo’s busiest neighborhoods, where girls solicit clients in their school uniforms, to a concert performed by a band of schoolgirls attended by adult men, and into a café, where teenage girls are available to hire by the hour. But the true revelations come behind closed doors, when schoolgirls involved in the rent-a-date industry reveal how they’ve been coerced into prostitution.

  1. Internment camps. Orwellian surveillance. Silence. This year, Isobel Yeung went undercover in a special report that reveals how China is oppressing the Muslim minority Uighur people in horrific conditions. Watch it here –

  2. West bringing puritanical ideals?
    Who are you kidding Vice.
    I bet that guy is a pedaphile.
    The western English teachers in Asia are hardcore pedaphiles.

  3. Am I the only one who think it's a bit hypocritical for us as Westerners to cast judgment on another countries issues which we haven't solved either. 😓

  4. I would honestly hate to be a woman in Japan. They sexualize woman more than any other country. Just look at their anime or their sex slave history and you can see their perverted nature.

  5. Errrrr the part at 30 secs " People blame girls for selling themselves. This problem won't be solved unless the adults who buy and sell dissapear". Well stop selling yourself in the first place i would say.. Sugar daddies exist everywhere.
