It's a pub staffed by Filipina hostesses. All offer drinks and conversation, most do karaoke (Filipinos love their karaoke!), some have dancing and shows. The term itself doesn't connotate sexual services, although the virtue of some ladies may well be negotiable after-hours. The phenomenon started when the bursting of Japan's economic bubble led to a ...

While I cannot pinpoint a specific show that sells tickets online to foreigners, I would like to give you a bit of background about what issues there are to join such shows in general. I hope this will give you a perspective and some pointers for what to look for specifically. Participation There are often foreigners participating in Japanese TV shows. One ...

Firstly It's legal to see dancing girl but it is not socially accepted in Northern part specially Swat and surroundings. Though they are not eliminated they still exist but Taleban stopping them as suggest this BBC story. And of course it is not impossible, It's a matter of value how much you give them. But reference can also work.

While there are many dedicated and local sites that you can find for concert listings, I find that Last.fm's Events section usually has everything. Especially for large cities like New York, Toronto, and Montreal it will definitely cover everything, no matter how esoteric your music tastes are. And if you 'scrobble' your listening to Last.fm, it can even ...

I've been told that onsen geisha still exist on the web site Immortal Geisha. Another place to see onsen geisha is Higashiyama Onsen, which is in Aizu Wakamatsu, Fukushima province. (Thanks Immortal Geisha user Hisayakko) I had dinner with two geishas from Higashiyama Onsen there. I booked an evening with geishas via the Higashiyama Onsen Tourism ...

I presume you’re looking for something in English. The main English-language listings magazine in Tokyo is called Metropolis (メトロポリス). The concerts section includes some J-Pop: http://metropolis.co.jp/listings/concerts/?concerts=1

I did some "googling" and the only thing I cam up with was this blog: http://culturadoam.blogspot.com.br/ (Portuguese) This is the cultural agenda of the Amazonas region, as it seems, where the theatre is included. It seems that the "Festival Amazonas de Ópera" is currently on the theater. I talked to a friend that was there very recently and she confirmed ...

"Onsen Geisha" is rather a locality issue than a "what do they do" issue. Towns that are famous for onsen have sometimes stage shows in hotels that anyone who visits can see. Example: http://www.atami-furuya.co.jp/geisha/ You can however just as well have a private performance such as in this place: http://www.horita-spa.com/party.html If you want to ...

I'm not completely sure if this was what the OP was talking about (or if it is even on topic). I was under the impression that (traditional) onna kengeki (女剣劇, lit. women sword theater) was a form of chambara drama (a form of martial arts drama) and taishu engeki (popular theater known for male cross-dressing) derived from shinkokugeki (lit. new national ...

Seems to still exist, although it's pretty obscure (I'd certainly never heard of it before this question) and no longer particularly eroticized. Here are two current performing groups, both of which seems to be amateur: Naruse Onna Kengekidan (なるせ女剣劇団); see お知らせ for announcements of future performances, mostly around Osaka/Kansai Momoiro Onna Kengekidan ...

So far the best resource I have found and use extensively is - http://www.tokyogigguide.com/ . The advantages I have seen over other resources: Frequently updated You can search schedule by month, date etc Has links to the venue website as well as the sites from where tickets can be bought More comprehensive and accurate than other resources

Next to travel.se I am also a big fan of Operabase. The userinterface might not be up to current standards, but they seem quite complete in their listings. as expected they do list the Teatro Amazonica. Tickets seems to be available through online booking, or purchase tickets to events specifically at the Teatro Amazonas

In the US this has been offered on one of the flights but had since been removed. The flight in question is American Airlines flight 191 that crashed in Chicago in 1979, has been documented in the Air Crash Investigation Series(43:50 seconds in). Basically it's not a regulation by any regulatory body but just an airline choice not to show critical or ...

There's a Facebook page for Airsoft Cluj, which I imagine would be a great source of expert knowledge in the area, if you were to ask for maybe some people to meet up with. This is assuming you need a club. If you're just looking for a field, I'm worried the question may be too broad and may need additional detail.

1) Yes, they still exist, if you google for the term you will find websites of such bars. 2) They are essentially normal bars with elevated prices. It is not directly a part of the sex industry since the bar as such is not directly involved in prostitution. But I guess one can debate what the definition of "Sex industry" is. Please note that there are tons ...

Most likely because it doesn't offer any real value to the consumers, apart from a few minutes of entertainment during landing/takeoff. It would also become repetitive very quickly for someone who flies often. Therefore such an improvement would be placed well below other entertainment features such as on-board movies, music, games, Internet and phone ...

I think it's a combination of things: many business travelers want the news, weather, and such both for their current location and for other places unlike a local news channel that might rely on previous knowledge of the "troubled mayor" or "controversial highway project" CNN and especially HLN explains everything from the beginning every time (which is ...

Right, this took some searching, as most sites just mention the artists like Youssou N'Dour. According to the Lonely Planet's 1000 Ultimate Experiences, number 687 (in the edition I looked at) is experiencing Mbalax in Dakar, Senegal. And apparently, local and international legend Seck hosts live mbalax nights at the Kilimanjaro club, next to the ...

An alternative to last.fm, Songkick offers a similar feature where you can search cities for events, and add your own musical tastes to narrow the search.

For NYC, if you're interested in smaller rock shows, I can't recommend Oh My Rockness strongly enough.
