When searching for an establishment in Japan, copy and paste the words “フィリピンパブ” into the search box, then enter the name of the place where you are located after putting a space.
Hello, this is Kei! How are you guys doing?
I am going to explain 「PHILIPPINE PUB」in Japan today.
◆What is 「PHILIPPINE PUB」？
「PHILIPPINE PUB」 is a bar where a Filipino girl sits next to you, makes you drinks, and is your conversation partner. Some bars have shows with dancers and singers, and some offer karaoke, so they are also called 「PHILIPPINE KYABAKURA」.
◆What is the appeal point of 「PHILIPPINE PUB」?
There are many appealing points about 「PHILIPPINE PUB」.
The first is that Filipino girls are “sweet”. Even when they are serving you next to your seat, they will always hold your hand or massage your palm. Although there is an obstacle in that she can’t speak Japanese very well, she overcomes it with body touch and skin contact.
The second is that they are interested in you. They will ask you a lot of questions to get closer to you, and if you say something in Japanese that they don’t understand during the conversation, they will try their best to understand it. This makes you feel that they are interested in you, that they appreciate your conversation, and that they need you, which satisfies your need for approval.
The third is that it reconfirms what is important as a person. As you get to know them better, you can ask them about their personal lives. And you can see how they feel about their families, the depth of the love, and the values, which reaffirms what is important to them as human beings. And it makes you want to help these energetic girls in any way you can.
And fourth is that amazingly beautiful girls rarely exist. To be honest, I can’t say that all the girls in 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 are beautiful. However, it is true that there are some incredibly beautiful girls, some of whom could pass for Hollywood actresses. When I talked to these girls, I found that most of them were half. The most common was half-Spanish, and the next most common was half-American. They were beautiful, with crisp eyes and noses, high noses, and an exotic vibe.
The last is that the price is cheap. Compared to the high-class clubs that I used to use for business entertainment, the price is about a third of that, which helps with the company’s expenses.
The above is my opinion, as I used to go to 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 two or three times a week, including for business and private purposes.
◆What is the price of 「PHILIPPINR PUB」?
The prices at 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 are really reasonable, about the same as 「SNACK」. If you can see a “show” at this price, you’ll feel like you’re getting even more.
30 minutes: 1,000 to 3,000 yen
40 minutes: 1,000 to 4,000 yen
60 minutes: 1,000 to 5,000 yen
90 minutes: 4,000 to 6,000 yen
There are many bars that offer an “all-you-can-drink for ○○minutes for the first time only for ○○○○yen” course, so I recommend trying out the “all-you-can-drink” course first. If you are in a group, some bars offer a group discount, so you should ask about it when you make a reservation. By the way, many bars offer “shochu, whiskey, and brandy” as the drink menu for the course.
30 minutes: 1,000 to 3,000 yen
60 minutes: 2,000 to 6,000 yen
If you find a girl you like, you can pick her up and extend your stay. In 「PHILIPPINE PUB」, it’s hard to “take a girl home” on the same day, so take your time and get to know her little by little.
【Bottle Keep Fee】
3,000 to 50,000 yen
In 「PHILIPPINE PUB」, they don’t really promote expensive bottles to their customers, so you can keep your favorite drinks without showing off your pride. You don’t need to keep a bottle to enjoy the all-you-can-drink courses available at many bars, so there is no problem. However, if you come to the bar more often, you may be able to get a discount of 1,000 to 2,000 yen on the set price if you keep a bottle.
【Drink Fee for girls】
500 to 1,500 yen
In 「PHILIPPINE PUB」, the prices are reasonable enough to let girls drink easily, so let them drink as much as possible. It’s more fun to drink with them.
【Nomination Fee (Photo Nomination)】
1,000 to 3,000 yen
A fee incurred when a girl is nominated based on a photo on a website or in a store panel.
【Real Nomination Fee】
1,000 to 5,000 yen
A fee incurred when you re-appoint a girl who has served you once in the past.
【Nomination in the Bar Fee】
1,000 to 2,000 yen
A charge incurred when you enter a bar without nomination and then find a girl you like in the bar and nominate her.
Some bars charge 100 to 200 yen per song, some charge 1,000 yen for five songs from the start, and others offer all-you-can-sing for an additional 1,000 to 2,000 yen to the set price. If you like karaoke, check it out before you go.
If you accompany a girl, you may be charged an additional 2,000 to 5,000 yen for the set price as accompany nomination fee. Also, if you are accompanied with a girl, you may be charged 15,000 yen per set for 90 minutes even though normally the bar charges 5,000 yen per set for 60 minutes. Therefore, if you find a girl you would like to be accompanied with, make sure you understand the bar’s accompany system.
0 to 1,000 yen
The single charge is the fee charged on top of the set price when you enter a bar by yourself.
【VIP Room Fee】
There are VIP rooms with karaoke and without karaoke, and they are available for 1,000 to 5,000 yen on top of the set price. Some bars charge 30,000 yen per set for an entire room.
TAX stands for sales tax, and SC stands for service charge.
TAX (sales tax): 0-10%.
SC (service charge): 0-20%.
※In the case of bars that charge the total of TAX and SC, it is about 10-30%.
【Credit Card Fee】
※A fee charged on top of a payment made by credit card.

◆Where is 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 at?
In 2004, the number of 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 peaked, but the U.S. pointed out that Japan was “a country that tolerates human trafficking,” and the entertainment visas were thereafter tightened. As a result, the number of entertainment visas issued dropped by a tenth, and many 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 were forced out of business.
But there are still many bars all over Japan that are still operating with the support of strong-rooted 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 fans, and if you search for 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 on the Internet, you will surely find it near you.
◆Points to keep in mind when using 「PHILIPPINE PUB」
First of all, please allow me to explain a little about the Philippines.
The average annual income of Filipinos is about 230,000 pesos (about 480,000 yen in Japanese yen), which is only about one-ninth of the average annual income of Japanese (4.36 million yen).
It can be seen that there is a considerable economic gap between Japan and the Philippines. And more than 40% of the Filipinos are living off remittances from the other Filipinos who go abroad to work. And more importantly, about 90% of those who go abroad to work are females.
In other words, these girls are working hard to support their families back home. Of course, there is nothing wrong with this, and I understand the feeling of wanting to support them.
However, there is something to be aware of, and that is that some of these girls are willing to lie to you and ask for money. Do not trust them so easily, no matter how much they say, “I love you,” “I want to marry you,” “I can’t live without you,” and so on.
I’m not saying that this happens to all the Filipino girls who work in 「PHILIPPINE PUB」. So there’s no limit to the suspicions, but if you’ve only just met her and she starts talking about money, you should be very careful.
How was it guys?
Actually, I once went out with a girl I met at 「PHILIPPINE PUB」. During the time we were together, I went pick her up from her Christian service every Sunday or take her to the bank to send money to the Philippines. That was really good time. Sometimes I wonder how she’s doing now. I hope she’s happy now.
I’ve never had a bad experience at 「PHILIPPINE PUB」, and of course I’ve never been ripped off, so I would recommend 「PHILIPPINE PUB」. I hope you guys can find a great 「PHILIPPINE PUB」 and a beautiful Filipino girl！
See you guys later!
