History

In the September 2008 edition of Wired magazine in a piece by Brian Ashcraft appearing on page 58, the following was said:

Many Japanese gals lead double lives: Mild-mannered stdents in plain-Jane uniforms by day; French maids, furries, and goth Lolitas by night. Legions run around Tokyo, wheeling suitcases full of makeup and costumes. But Superman had a phone booth - Where are schoolgirls supposed to suit up? Luckily Japanese COS-Pa has introduced tiny dressing rooms for women in the trendy Shibuya district, where 500 to 700 yen (roughly $5 to $6) buys 30 minutes of private mirror time, free Wi-Fi, beauty supplies, and a non-alcoholic beverage. Says COS-Pa's owner firmly: "Ladies should not haveto get beutiful in the bathroom."
