TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Thursday announced the bust of a traditional Thai massage parlor in Minato Ward for supplying adult-entertainment services, reports Nippon News Network (Nov. 14).
On Saturday, officers raided Gamurai Thong, located in the Shimbashi district, and arrested the 46-year-old Thai manager, Jeeranan Suzuki, and three female Thai employees for providing sexual services to a 47-year-old male office worker — a violation of the Law Regulating Adult Entertainment Businesses.
According to the parlor’s Web site, stretch services begin at 5,000 yen for the first hour, while oil treatments start at 6,000 yen for the same period.
Suzuki has reportedly admitted to the allegations. “In order to increase the number of male customers, we began offering sexual services,” the suspect is quoted by police, as reported by Fuji News Network (Nov. 14).
According to investigators, Gamurai Thong has collected 150 million yen in revenue over the past five years.
Police said the parlor regularly hires female overseas exchange students. With violations on the rise, law enforcement has created a pamphlet (written in a number of languages, including Chinese and Thai) that warns women from overseas of the consequences of employment in the fuzoku trade, which is the adult-entertainment industry.
