Asian Beauty:Uno.K | Prostitution ring earned 100 million yen using underage girls

The operators of a Fukuoka-based prostitution ring called "Candy Club" sent 61 teenage girls to customers some 3,000 times over an 18-month period beginning in March last year, raking in sales of about 100 million yen, police investigators have learned.
The club reportedly solicited clients through cell-phone based sites. Some of the girls were as young as 14, and none were older than 17. One of the girls reportedly brought in 3 million yen for the ring over two months.
On Thursday police sent documents to prosecutors accusing a 20-year-old worker at the club of violating child welfare laws, bringing their investigations into the establishment to a close.
Investigators said the worker introduced a 16-year-old girl to a customer at a hotel in Kitakyushu on Nov. 27 last year, making her perform indecent acts with him.
The club was opened in March last year by Shinichi Takahashi, 28, a former sex club worker from Fukuoka's Hakata-ku who has been charged with violating child welfare laws. Takahashi and others in the case allegedly posed as women, writing messages on cell-phone matchmaking sites to solicit customers, and forced girls to engage in prostitution in hotels in Kitakyushu and Fukuoka for between 20,000 yen and 70,000 yen a time.
The suspects reportedly looked for girls to participate in the business through cell phone sites and dispatched 61 girls to customers some 3,000 times between March last year and July this year. Some customers reportedly used the service dozens of times.
When questioned by police, Takahashi said he was able to make money because the business was in high demand. One of the girls reportedly gave up going to high school, saying she was too busy with the prostitution work.
