Because having your ears cleaned by a pretty girl is a bliss.
This picture was taken last December during my Japan trip, the Akihabara branch of Yamamoto Mimikaki-ten, the country’s largest ear-care parlor which boasts nine chains around Tokyo.
A basic session lasts 30 minutes and costs ¥2700. A kimono-clad young woman will chit chat with you and serve you tea. You then rest your head on her lap and she will gently and lovingly scrapes excess wax out of your ears. It’s so comfortable most fall asleep during the process. ^^;
Equally blissful if you have your wife or girlfriend do it for you too. ^^;
