The depicted is not a regular event or an ongoing promotion. In 2010, IKEA staged a promotion called In Bed with IKEA at the Olympia concert hall in Paris, in which the seats were replaced with a new bed and mattress line they were promoting. In late 2014, they staged a similar event called Cinema of Love at Kinostar De Lux in Khimki just outside Moscow. ...

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 ...

It's not quite the same but a similar style of venue recently opened in Budapest. http://budaeg.com/?id=bed_movies&next_language Their "beds" don't have the abundance of linen shown in the photo; it's more of a very, very deep lounge than a bed. But they still look pretty comfortable and you have the option of having food delivered to your bed during ...

I'm an undergraduate in Korea (South). Quick answer for your question is "impossible" though you can find some people "acting" kisaeng (-_-?!) There are 2 types of kisaeng in korea nowadays Real kisaeng They are who really worked(?) as kisaeng until 1940's but not anymore since kisaeng has become illegal "job" (1945 I can't find the exact bill related at ...

Yes you can. There are still some in Taipei. http://www.u2mtv.com/html/about/03.aspx is one of the chains. You can pick the movie you want from the shelf (they're all legit copies, btw), then check out and pick a room. You can also order food from them for you to enjoy. Just FYI, it's popular among teenagers because of the private suites... and you could ...

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 ...

"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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

The Fairlee Motel & Drive-in Theater (in Fairlee, Vermont) is a motel with an attached drive-in cinema. The motel rooms have large windows facing the movie screen, and speakers for the audio. Motel is open all year, but the drive-in theater is seasonal.

In Australia, in Sydney, the closest to this would be Govinda's Movie Room in Darlinghurst, which is walking distance from the city centre or Kings Cross. Downstairs is an all you can eat Indian vegetarian buffet restaurant. I believe it was run by the Hari Krishnas but I'm not sure that it still is. It's good but not as cheap as other Hari Krishna ...

So you want to watch a great movie strapped to a uncomfortable seat, while the person in front of you reclines his seat and crushes your feet, on a small crappy screen, interrupted by PA announcements, with babies crying, people coughing and farting and constant engine sound in the background. The answer is no, not yet. You have to wait a few more months, ...

The simplest way to find the answer is if you search by image on google (https://images.google.com/). You will get the relevant answer. It is the Parisian music hall Olympia that was filled with beds from Ikea to promote the Swedish company’s new line-up of mattresses. Reference: ...

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

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.

I don't know of any organised places where snake charmers meet (the equivalent of a Jemaa el-Fnaa square, Marrakech for example). Moreover India is a fairly large country so there's no way to definitely rule out this possibility. However I do recall setting quite a few of these performances randomly on the street. I would usually find them outside, or in ...

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 ...

At KingSpa, at least in the Palisades Park, NJ US one, there are several rooms with sleeping/napping accommodations where they play movies. I think most of them are Korean, but they've been fun nonetheless when I've gone.

Sometimes a tourist in London may be interested in seeing a film which has been released in the UK, but will not be released in their own country until some point in the future. Alternatively, a business traveller may be 'stuck' in London for the weekend and may opt to spend part of their weekend catching up on the latest films. In both of these cases, ...

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 are lot of luxury cinemas around the word with cosy and comfy beds.

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 ...

They definitely still exist - they're more common in the southern part of Taiwan, but if you're looking in Taipei, the one near Fu Jen University had quite a bunch last time I went. https://guidetotaipei.com/visit/fu-jen-university-fu-da-garden-night-market-%E8%BC%94%E5%A4%A7%E8%8A%B1%E5%9C%92%E5%A4%9C%E5%B8%82
