A Shinjuku host has been arrested for luring a 16-year-old girl into his club so he could force her into prostitution, making her service three customers in half a day.

According to police, the 21-year-old man worked as a host in a club known as “Extreme,” in Shinjuku’s notorious Kabukicho district. Appropriately enough, he worked under the name “Outlaw.”

In April he successfully enticed a 16-year-old “unemployed” Saitama prefecture girl into the club; she had run away from home.

He admits he did so with the intent of making her prostitute herself in order to pay his fees, and also that he knew she was underage (both for sex and alcohol).

She visited the club regularly until July, at which point the host confronted her over her tab, which then stood at ¥70,000. She could not pay.

He told her to “Earn the cash by finding customers at a deai-kei site! Come back here by 3PM with ¥40,000!”

The girl did as she was ordered, using a deai-kei site to solicit three men, whom she serviced at a Shinjuku love hotel not 500m from the host club, completing her business in less than half a day.

Her story came to the attention of police some days later when she was arrested  for attempting to solicit customers on the street herself.

They eventually moved to arrest the host on charges of inducing a minor to engage in obscene ,and for having her engage in illegal prostitution. He admits the charges.

Given her domestic situation, the apparent ease with which she solicited and serviced 3 customers, and the likelihood that she was able to pay for earlier host encounters, it seems she was already an experienced harlot before the host presented her with his bill – though she will not apparently be facing any charges.

Host clubs, the male equivalent of hostess clubs, typically lay on stylish young men and hugely expensive drinks to women looking for raucous entertainment and a faux relationship.

Providing sex is often part of the arrangement, although as the business hinges upon keeping customers coming back in the hopes of eventual consummation, it may be withheld as a sales tactic. Often their customers are other sex industry workers.

    She was out on the street looking for more customers after paying her tab.

    Rather, he didn't even "force" her to go into prostitution. He told her to get 3 customers and service them but she was under no obligation to follow his "orders". She could've found another way to get the money but she opted to sell herself.

    or she could have just ducked out and never paid. Not like they can do anything about it, since reporting it to the police would be self incriminating.

    She got 40k for three men she still need to get another 30k for the tab or does "completing her business in less than half a day" mean the whole bill.

    Every kinds of clubs anywhere in the world can be exploitative. You see that in the States with picker-uppers in the streets promising girls with free drinks and free pass to clubs. Then it escalates and they are either coerced or heavily pressured into living up to their 'obligations'. Sadly it's a world wide problem.

    Knowing a bit about Japanese host clubs from a friend's experience, there are some scary manipulative asshats working in them. So while I agree that the laws around prostitution creates problems of their own, when there aren't even any mandatory help involved. In this case I have no problem believing the host coaxed her into it. And, if so, hope he suffers dearly for it.

    I wonder who will be her next unlucky pimp victim to be Jailed. Knowing that she cannot be charge or go to jailed.

    Didn't know Japanese local government are bunch of Asshole if they really want to help the girl they should have least care like a Rehabilitation for run-away and abused kids to shelter them or to educate them not letting her go or return her to the parent that suppose to take care of her but they didn't.

    No, 16 is not a kid. It is at the very least an adolescent, and near enough to adulthood depending on her growth to be considered an adult as well. The fact that everyone stupidly calls teenagers 'kids' is almost definitely a representation of why so many of them don't listen to adults in the first place. Stop treating them like kids, which they aren't, and you'll see them rise to any responsibility you give them when you offer them respect as a human being. I'm in my late 20s and certain 50-year-olds still have the gall to call me a 'kid' in inappropriate contexts, in which case I call them morons and treat them as such. They earned it.

    Somewhere along the line, the concepts of an 'adolescent' and a 'young adult' melted into the adjacent 'kid and adult' descriptions, and that erosion is probably one of the chief reasons so many teenagers either act like children, or act mature for their perceivable age.

    This girl seems to have ran away from home and ran up a tab. It's the guy's idiocy for allowing it to build, and yet he had no reason to deny her either, depending on the business model. I'm not sure if it's common for young girls to be in such places. As much as underage prostitution is reprehensible, there really is some serious bullshit in this story. Then again, that describes all the articles relating to this stuff on Sankaku. Everyone seems to admit everything they do with crystal clarity... and my bullshitometer is off the charts.

    "Adolescents ARE kids"

    Case in point. You just disrespected the fact that they have grown enough to have complex cognitive thought, which actual kids cannot do, and because of that, you act accordingly around them. Adolescents are ALLOWED to act like kids, because people treat them like that, which then makes it the parents'/adults' faults when they act out in such ways. Just because people treat them that way doesn't mean they are. I'll bet you think the 'teenage rebellion' is a 'phase' as well, and not actually a response to the adults around them not respecting them as people, which is the reality.

    In this case, the host wasn't predatory or manipulative until it came to paying the tab. Before that, he was doing his job, and she was exploiting HIM as a host. So if I were honest with myself, I'd say this is a fairer turn of events than anyone wants to admit. Granted, I wonder how old he is. If he's a host, he too probably isn't that old himself. The prostitution is probably getting so normal over there that this wasn't a far-fetched request in current society.

    As for being called a kid, no, they're not just words when said older people treat me as a kid as they call me one. They don't acknowledge my experiences to date, nor listen seriously to things I have to say. An example is I had cancer, and did extensive research to find homeopathic and naturopathic treatments that ultimately have kept me completely devoid of cancer or any sign of it for 3 years and counting. Trying to explain the science to an older person who thinks because my degree isn't in medicine I don't know what I'm talking about is beyond frustrating. Especially when they say "Well, you're a kid. You're still healthy." Morons...

    @kamiru - Situations aren't so cut and dry when you're a runaway. Can you think of ANY case where a runaway MIGHT not want to call her parents for help? Also, what if she feared the cops would send her back home? What if she feared the cops would arrest HER for running up that tab she couldn't pay? Why do we expect 16-year-old kids to act like 45-year-old adults who have been on the streets their whole life?

    It's pretty plain this girl didn't have the mental maturity to be considered an adult.

    How is the host an idiot for letting her build up a tab? That was explicitly his goal. It wasn't idiocy, it was more manipulative and predatory than anything. He doesn't care as long as he makes his money in the end.

    As for you being in your late 20s and letting people get under your skin for calling you kid - it's just words dude. You should know that by now. Calling them morons probably just fits their views of you being a kid anyways.

    Don't you think ending up on the street in the first place is her fault? Running away and not wanting to return is her own problem, no? Can't you go to the authorities if your parents abuse you, because in my country sure you can. Running away never solves anything and one shouldn't be protected for this choice. (Suicide on the other hand solves most problems of the individual.)

    It's funny cause the guy wasn't even a pimp and she was under no obligation to listen to him.

    She could've found some other way to pay the bill but she opted to listen to his suggestion of prostituting herself.

    Nothing of the sort would make that much money that fast. She was pushed into a corner, it was within the allocated time or never.
    Besides, it's harder to get an official job when you don't have a house.

    He was a gigalo whose job was to service women. He let her run up a tab and feel obligated to him so she'd do what he wanted. And what he wanted was to get paid for his attentions anyway he could. So telling her to sell herself for quick cash was no problem to him.
    There might have been other ways to pay the bill, but maybe washing the dishes was out of the question, and that particular spot employed only male hosts, and he gave her less than a full day to make a payment. Prostitution was the quickest way in that situation apparently.

    It's because of the way she did it. If she was more discrete about the way she looked for clients, they wouldn't have noticed or cared. I'm no expert on Japan, but I've got an impression that you can get away with quite a bit of stuff there as long as you're not too bold, open, or disruptive in doing it.

    No Japanese man of any quality will knowingly date a prostitute, so their only way of engaging in such a relationship is via the illusion offered by a host; they also pander to the low sense of self-esteem which tends to go with such a profession.

    A significant proportion of them are mentally ill or otherwise problematic as well, so it seems likely they have very little leeway in which to do better.
