Hello, I was reading a recent copy of Tokyo Notice Board and there was an opinion piece that basically asked us guys to stop wasting our time and money at hostess bars and strip club and to spend our efforts on trying to meet "real" women instead (they suggested cafes I think). So I think to myself "OK, that sounds like a great idea." If only it were that easy. I've lived in Tokyo for almost 4 years now and can count on one hand the number of foreign women I've talked too. So although the article was a good critique, how is a nice guy in Tokyo supposed to meet nice foreign women anyways? Seriously.
