He seems to be a Twitter influencer doing his business on his own.
I guess you need to promote yourself online or hire someone to do it for you?
There are also services like rental boyfriends or rental friends so you may be able to start a rental gaijin business.

Wh-What would nihonjin possibly do with a rental gaijin?

demo nihongo dekinai shi...

One time I did a "rental" thing due to strange circumstances and it did not feel right...
to where I gave them their money back and excused myself

Tough business you know, dealing with strangers

I read some articles about rental gaijin services and the staff seems to be appointed mostly to help language learning, and other purposes are like as models or for small talk or just as handymen….not so different from what I imagined.

Considering the demands, most clients don’t speak English well and someone needs to bridge the language gap to make deals.

>Tough business
I think so too. I’m terrible at selling myself or getting along with people. If I do such a job my client and I will feel miserably awkward…

I wanted to do this job, but there's no demand for it in the US (yet). Never say never. You might have better luck in China where white guys and white girls are hired just to be a prop though it's probably getting less popular now that the Chinese are more confident in themselves.

The nuances are hard to pinpoint.

In America, people would feel weird for using such services.
Furthermore, supplying such services would be uncomfy: you don't know who you're going to deal with because there is such a wide variety of life here.

Despite that variety, the average person in America is something riddled with disease. Obese and medicated.
Multiculturalism doesn't help

You can think of the US as late stage roman empire!

Interesting.
So, compared to Japan, people in US have more diverse backgrounds and it’s more difficult to guess what kinds of strangers you will deal with.🤔

Yes. There's no concept of social shaming either. There's no reputation to uphold, or family or whatever else.
You're on your own.

Partly why there's an epidemic of obesity: no one cares.
It's a very "hands-off" culture.
We will gladly lead people to their death through over consumption of sugar. The same as tobacco!

While in the East, there's a concept of the greater good for all(? maybe?) At least at a superficial face value. In order to maintain harmony in the east, you have to go through the steps of pretending to care.
Presentability. Upholding your role.

There's no such obligation in the West.
There's no concept of face in Western worlds either (for most lower social strata).
Of course there's face when it comes to business, but that's it.

The central struggle for Westerners (or in particular the candid Americans) is a way to unify the self through the delta that makes up living: streams of working, streams of family, streams of friends.
We want to unify it into one river.

In Eastern cultures (feel free to correct if I'm wrong) it seems it's quite fine to have distinct roles and forever abide by them, even if it pains you.
You are the younger brother, and that is your role.
Or you are the mother, and that is your role.
You are a friend, nothing more, and don't intrude anymore than a simple friend either!
You are not allowed to cross the line of that role.

In America at least, people cross that all the time because we're partly insane, I guess.
There's no need for fragmentation because there's no care (shame).
There's only guilt, but most people nowadays in the West even lack guilt.
They're slowly inching most of the lower strata toward acting like animals.
Porn, sugar, abrasiveness, worship of the seven sins, etc.

This discussion reminds me to read this book when I find some time.

Quite interesting.
I think your understanding of the East Asia is not off the mark.
I’ve also heard about shame cultures and guilt cultures. (I’m not remotely knowledgeable about them tho.)

I don't think the late Roman Empire metaphor is very helpful for people who aren't Westerners.

There's one for China: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ways_That_Are_Dark. There's another for India.
