An Homage To The World's Oldest Profession!


RoLand is the most popular host in Japan right now! In fact, he even calls himself the emperor of hosts. He's so popular that there's an exhibition about him at Parco in Ikebukuro. If you are curious about the hosting world in Japan, you should definitely check it out. It will eliminate all stereotypes you might hold about hosting, the first one being they are prostitutes!

RoLand ローランド

Ok, so first off. Let's clear the air, hosts aren't actually prostitutes. They are paid, quite generously, to entertain clients. They pour drinks and encourage female patrons to spend more. It is like a 'boyfriend experience' for a night.

Hosts are smooth talkers who make each client feel like they are the only ones in the world for them. And I guess RoLand is quite good at it because he managed to make it to the top 1 position.
In fact, RoLand is so popular that there is a museum exhibition about him!

RoLand calls himself the emperor of the host world and the exhibition title roughly translates to "Me and the Others." I don't think he's known for his modesty, but that's a whole other story, or perhaps it's part of the personae.

RoLand is worshiped as a divinity by his fans, however, this fan is for everyone curious about the hosting world.
There are special contents available, such as VR experience where you can pretend to be served champagne by RoLand himself.

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
