Japanese Man Gets Paid To ‘Do Nothing’

The 38-year-old Tokyo resident charges 10,000 yen ($71) per booking to accompany clients and is there only as a companion to not let them get bored and fed up with their work. Shoji Morimoto is doing this job, he rents himself to the clients just to give his time and his company to them.

Renting himself out to clients who simply don’t want to be alone has become her line of work. Shoji works one to three sessions a day and is in great demand even though he doesn’t talk to anyone or do anything besides what he is hired to do.

“Basically, I rent myself out. My job is to be where my clients want me and not do anything in particular,” Morimoto said in an interview, mentioning that he attended 4000 sessions since past four years.

With a lean build and average looks, Morimoto now boasts nearly a quarter of a million followers on Twitter, where he gets most of his clients. About a quarter of them are repeat customers, including one who has hired him 270 times in this career.

Her job took her to a park with a man who wanted to play on see-saw. He waved through a train window at a stranger who wanted a goodbye.
