Experiencing a host club usually requires an expensive ticket to Tokyo and all kinds of special arrangements – not the least of which includes studying Japanese (><) – but the brilliant organizers of Anime North are sponsoring an event at the Radisson with all the best features of a host club, plus some special extras!
Café Nocturne promises an evening of royal treatment and lively chat with the host of your dreams (you can choose your shimeisha from a bevy of suave entertainers), plus snacky snacks & special drinks. To help you decide which debonaire dude to choose, some of the hosts will offer special menu items and original drinks at their tables. You can even order a champagne call!
If you’re lucky enough to go, come here and tell me about it! I’m already DEEPLY ENVIOUS!
Of course, if you can’t make it to Toronto right away, you can’t go wrong by choosing the deadly charming hosts who work behind the closed doors of Club Nova in Fallen Angel…

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
