Osaka cracks down on 'American Street' hookers

OSAKA, Aug 31 (News On Japan) - Three women in their 20s have been arrested for waiting for clients on 'American Street' in Osaka with the intention of prostituting themselves.

The women were arrested on suspicion of violating laws against prostitution prevention. They are suspected of waiting for clients with the intention of engaging in prostitution from late July to mid August in the hotel district of Taikyoji-cho, Kita-ku, Osaka.

The three individuals have admitted to the allegations. In response to police questioning, they stated, "We had a sense of pride from being chosen among many women," and "We did it because we could earn money quickly."
