I'm currently unable to distinguish between Japanese, Korean and Chinese ethnicities. How do I avoid exploiting victims of human trafficking while having a massage in Japan?
Is human trafficking more of a problem with massage parlours that offer sexual massages (スペシャルマッサージ or Supesharu massāji) compared to places that only do non-sexual massages?
If so, how can I tell if a parlor offers sexual massages or not?
There are a couple of signs, but the one at the front has some kanji, and then "Reflexology and pedicure", a picture of a woman getting a massage, more kanji, then "4th floor, 10am to 5am".
I assumed that operating at late hours would be a sign it's sexually oriented, but the following is available until 2 am and otherwise appears to be non-sexual:
Advertising within my hotel room in Sendai. It offers both "body care" and "foot care", and says it is available from 8pm to 2am. Elsewhere (not in the photo) it mentions that the masseurs are qualified.
