When looking at Filipina migrant workers in Japan, ‘love’ is the most important aspect for these women. Filipina hostess workers are essentially paid to ‘love’ their customer. These women need to provide ‘love’ to the Japanese men, in order to live and survive. ‘Love’ is the main role of a Filipina woman working in a hostess bar needs to show.
