TOKYO (TR) – As a part of a crackdown on prostitution in the Uguisudani area of Taito Ward, metropolitan police have raided three so-called “delivery health” sex services that specialize in women attired in costumes, reports Nippon News Network (July 4).

Police accused Yasuhiko Yamashita, the 32-year-old manager of Boku no Imoto (My Younger Sister), and Masato Sakakibara, the 40-year-old manager of Seishun Yobiko (Adolescent Prep School), of dispatching female employees to perform sex acts in violation of the Anti-Prostitution Law.

Police arrested five other persons on the same charges. A third parlor was also busted but not named.

Sakakibara denies the charges, telling police that his parlor does not provide prostitution.

During the raids, police seized school girl uniforms, shoes and book bags.

Over the past 11 months, Adolescent Prep School collected 330 million yen in revenue, according to Fuji News Network (July 4). Meanwhile, My Younger Sister earned about 18 million yen over the last three months.

Of the approximately 3,100 delivery health businesses in Tokyo about 400 are located in Uguisudani. The busts are a part of initiative being carried out by metropolitan police in the area in cracking down on violations.
