KANAZAWA (TR) – With many expecting economic prosperity to Ishikawa Prefecture, the Hokuriku Shinkansen opened for business on March 14 to directly link Tokyo and Kanazawa City.

For weekly tabloid Shukan Asahi Geino (April 2), a keen interest is the potential boost to the city’s nightlife quarters. As a primer, the magazine recommends a couple adult-entertainment options in the Katamachi area.

Hostess club Regolith is said to be high-end yet “reasonable,” and with prices beginning at 5,000 yen for the first 50 minutes with Aya (21) and Shiho (24) few will contend that point.

Motoi is a lounge with an “at home feel.” However, neither the lovely Aya nor her equally lovely colleague, Mihoto, resemble the girl next door, and that’s a good thing.
