Everyday we receive request for a tour guiding in Japan. But we see so many great tour companies in Japan for you. 


We would like to offer something totally different.


It is called "F-R-I-E-N".


We just lend you a friend for Japan trip.


You have ever heard of rental family in Japan? You can rent a family here.


Our service is to offer only English or multilingual friend in Japan to rent for two hours or so.


We have a strong network of the registered F-R-I-E-N who speak foreign languages ( English, Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Arabic, Thai, Bengal, French etc.) around Japan. 


Introducing F-R-I-E-N: Rent a Friend Service in Japan and Worldwide


Have you ever wished for a friendly chat or someone to bounce new ideas off of, without the pressure of a formal relationship? Welcome to F-R-I-E-N, where you can rent a friend in Japan and around the world, connecting with registered individuals who speak fluent English and are ready to engage in meaningful conversations and activities.


The price is 30USD for 2 hours (10USD for another one hour).


The concept of F-R-I-E-N emerged from a fascinating cultural backdrop, where social interactions and appearances play pivotal roles. In Japan, and across Asia, the idea of renting companionship or support is not entirely new. 


Imagine attending a wedding or meeting the family of your partner in Japan. While the interactions might have been enjoyable, questions may arise about the authenticity of those relationships. In Japan and Asia, hiring individuals for personal roles, like professional mourners or even stand-in family members, has historical roots dating back to ancient civilizations.


The reasons behind renting friends or family are varied. Some travelers just want to experience a "true" Japan experience simply going out with a friend. Maybe having some tea, walking through the city..

Or, even consider a wedding scenario where familial tensions prevent loved ones from attending. Instead, individuals might opt for stand-ins to avoid social discomfort or uphold appearances. Similar scenarios unfold at funerals, where participants hire individuals to maintain traditional customs.


Interestingly, F-R-I-E-N extends beyond a conventional service. Our service only focus on true Japan experience, fun and English (foreign language) speaking.


Some clients of other human rental use our service to spark jealousy or navigate professional challenges. For instance, a customer might hire a companion to make their partner jealous or send someone to quit a job on their behalf. This niche industry serves diverse needs, offering innovative solutions to everyday social dilemmas. If you need these "professional" services, talk to other human rental companies. F-R-I-E-N is not the expert of these tasks!


At F-R-I-E-N, we recognize the complexity of modern relationships and societal expectations. Whether you seek a casual conversation, support during significant events, or assistance in unique situations, our service provides a bridge to authentic connections.
