Lesson 17: Osaka’s Angelbe Pay Toilet / VIDEO Script

Miki, have you heard of Angelbe?

Yeah sure! Most young girls and businesswomen in Osaka know about Angelbe. It’s a pay toilet located next to the JR Osaka station. It’s really popular as a place to freshen up.

So what’s so cool about Angelbe? What can you you do there?

Well, I’ve only used it a few times but it is a great place to kill some time and I can fix my makeup there and try new products that are being demonstrated for women.

Wow! That is cool! How much does it cost and what are the hours?

It costs 300 Yen per hour each time and you can pay with your ICOCA train pass. It’s open from 6:30 a.m. To 10:00 p.m.

I see. For example, what kind of products are demonstrated there and by what companies?

Well, for example Panasonic plans to advertise a new hair-iron and a professional hair stylist will introduce the product and advise potential customers on how to use it. And Wacoal will be offering fitting service for lingerie. So you see, it’s great for young women!

Yeah, I can see that. I wonder why there’s not such place for men?

Well, men don’t usually wear makeup or lingerie and all men need is a sports bar and beer!

Yeah, I guess you’re right! Men are pretty simple in some ways. But women, well, they really do make things interesting!
