Nope, the title isn’t an opportunistic attempt to get lots of new boob-Googling readers my blog (although if that happens, I won’t complain.) In a couple of weeks, another of American’s fine cultural exports will arrive in Tokyo: Hooters. Japan’s first branch of the American restaurant chain, famous for its buxom waitresses in tiny orange shorts, will open in Akasaka on October 25th.
The Tokyo Hooters is the latest addition to the 455 branches of the chain found in 29 countries around the world. In a country which does not have much time for political correctness, it won’t be met with much protest. Indeed, it will fit right in with the maid cafes and hostess bars. The biggest problem will be finding suitably endowed women to work there. Although, by many accounts, bust sizes in Japan have been steading increasing for years, thanks largely to a more westernized diet, including fatty food such as hamburgers and milkshakes, (as provided by fine establishments like Hooters!)
I’ll go along and check it out and report back!
Address: Akasaka Tokyu Plaza 2F,
