A cultural shift in Japan’s massive adult entertainment industry has recently created a burgeoning industry: host boy cafés for women in search of young, attractive partners.

Welcome to The Great Happiness Space: Rakkyo Café. The club’s owner, Issei (just 22), has perfected the art of fake relationships with the young women who support him. Issei also has a staff of twenty boys training to develop the dress, the talk, the walk, and the eye for rich girls that will make them the top escorts of Osaka’s underground love scene.

Join us as Osaka’s number one host boy takes us on a journey through the complex and heart-wrenching world of love for sale in the Japanese underground.
