Last spring, I met Satoshi Fujita, one of the most famous pick-up artists in Japan. My brother came along, and we sat down at a coffee shop with four of his students for two hours, listening to the men talk about their extremely manipulative and effective techniques for NANPA—the Japanese art of picking up girls. It was the most entertaining reporting I’d done in a long time.
Satoshi Fujita is not a good-looking man. He has oily skin, beady
eyes, short legs and a boy-band wig to cover his balding head. But that
hasn’t stopped him from becoming Japan’s most sought-after dating coach
Fujita’s Pickup School for Men Who Can’t Get Any
teaches geeky, insecure men of all ages how to gain confidence, score
dates and get laid — all based, he says, on a proprietary "science" he
discovered after a decade of careful research.
