TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Thursday announced the bust of a risque bar in Machida City for licensing violations, reports Jiji Press (Oct. 30).
On Monday, officers raided Girl’s Bar Baby Doll, and took Hiromichi Mori, the 33-year-old manager, into custody for offering services under the adult-entertainment law while licensed as a drinking establishment.
Upon a customer’s request, the hostesses, seated behind a counter, will change into one of several costumes, including school-girl uniforms, or reveal their undergarments.
With 12 of the 20 hostesses employed at Girl’s Bar Baby Doll being minors, officers plan to also pursue charges related to the Labor Standards Act regarding harmful employment.
According to NHK (Oct. 30), the bar collected 8.5 million yen in revenue since it opened four months ago.
