Women who pay large sums of money to hostesses are called “hosokyos,” and they have a wide variety of ways to earn money. While there are celebrities such as business owners and female doctors, there are also girls who raise money for their hostesses by playing stand-up in Okubo Park. One of the recent trends in Kabukicho is that of the “hosu-kanai gambler,” a group of people who get drunk at host clubs and then go on to become hostesses.

A young woman cowering in a host club, probably drunk, is a common sight in Kabukicho. This is a common sight in Kabukicho.

Shinji (a pseudonym, 24), a mid-level host who sells about 7 million yen a month, says, “My princesses (female customers) are my customers.

My princesses (female customers) are also there. She studies horse racing and boat racing hard and earns quite a lot of money. She spends a lot of money during the month when she wins at gambling, so I appreciate it.

In fact, a quick peek at Instagram reveals that accounts claiming to be “hoss-crazed boat gamblers” are selling information products, indicating that gambling has become a familiar activity for women who want to earn large sums of money. Shinji continues.

However, the income of “hosiery gamblers” is not stable, so it is not a good idea to rely too much on their sales. I think the ideal way is to keep a few gamblers around while securing girls who come to the club on a steady basis with the money they earn in the sex industry.

How did the hosiery-crazed girls get involved in gambling? Mika (pseudonym, 22), who has been a hosiery fanatic for three years, says, “It all started when I met a girl who was in my charge (nominated by my boss).

It all started when my host took me to a pachinko parlor with him. It was beginner’s luck and I won a lot. Now it is my daily routine to go to Pachinko after work. When I lose, I tell my manager, “I didn’t get many customers today,” and when I win, I pour champagne into the bottle (laughs). But lately, I sometimes get more absorbed in playing pachinko than going to the host. …… I made a promise to my host that I would not go to pachinko before going to the host. I was made to promise by my supervisor that I would not go to the pachinko parlor before going to the host.

Gambling fever is on the rise in Kabukicho. Recently, an unusual kind of gambling has become popular. Host Yu (pseudonym, 26) tells us, “‘Smash Bros.

People play “Smash Bros.” for 10,000 to 30,000 yen per game dozens of times, and it is not uncommon for people to lose more than 1 million yen in a single night.

Smash Bros.” refers to Nintendo’s popular game “Super Smash Bros. The game is played by controlling a character of your choice and sending your opponent flying off the field. Chloe continues.

Sometimes I play with other hosts, and sometimes I play against hosiery-crazed girls. Sometimes I wonder how the female players feel when they see the hostesses absorbed in the game with the money they’ve contributed (laughs).

Among the “hosu-crazed gamblers,” there are also those who gamble away money from uninterested hosts and put it into their own accounts.

They play poker and mahjong to sucker the hosts. If I study these intellectual games properly, I can usually beat weaker hosts. Then, I give the money I win to my favorite host (laughs). (Laughs.) Sometimes I let my guard down, and a very strong host takes my money in mahjong, and I have to go to a consumer finance company.

Hosting and gambling have one thing in common: they are highly addictive. The number of women who are addicted to both and end up destroying themselves is likely to increase in the future.
