Fashion health

', or health' for short, is a form of massage parlor that manages to avoid the anti-prostitution law by offering a range of services that stop short of vaginal intercourse.

Fashion-Health clubs can be found in all big cities across Japan and are easy to spot because of their brightly-coloured flashing lights and garish decorations. Often advertised as "Health Clubs", they are bound to confuse foreigners that are unfamiliar with the goings-on inside the buildings. These clubs usually post pictures of their "masseuses" in front of their entrances however some faces and eyes are censored with pixellation or black strips. Some club entrances also feature caricatured depictions of what to expect inside. Prices range anywhere from 6000 to 20,000 yen per hour depending on the services consumed. Some of these fashion health clubs cater exclusively to native Japanese people, with signs in Chinese, Korean, English and Portuguese boldly being displayed at the entrance prohibiting the entry of foreigners.
