The Art of Nanpa: The Osaka Love Thief

Leave a comment

Here is a great documentary on the art of “Nanpa”. Nanpa is seen most often in young heterosexual men ranging from their late teens to mid-twenties. Groups of “Nanpa boys” will gather around places with busy, predominantly female foot traffic (bridges, subway stations, shopping malls, etc.) and approach women in search of a date. The Nanpa groups generally wear high fashion with nice suits, expensive shoes, and extravagant hair styles. Because of their style of dress, Nanpa boys are occasionally misinterpreted by foreigners as employees of host clubs, who also roam such areas speaking with various women. If you are in Osaka near Shinsaibashi you will see this in droves.

Welcome. This site is dedicated to people who live, breathe and appreciate Expat Life. I’ve lived in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Mainland China over the last 5 years. Recently, I've been getting a lot of emails from friends and friends of friends asking me the differences between the four main stops for expats in Asia. Living overseas is quite a daunting experience. As jobs become more scarce in North America, more recent graduates and working professionals will be opting to work in Asia. I have seen or experienced nearly every possible scenario you can have living in Asia and I would like to share my knowledge and experience with the rest of the world.
