Japanese Guy Makes Money As Customers Hire Him ‘To Do Nothing’

He earns ¥10,000 per client by doing nothing

  • Shoji Morimoto, 37, earns ¥10,000 per client by doing nothing.
  • He basically accompanies people as they do different activities.
  • For the most part, his job is to “ease people’s sense of loneliness,” he said.

37-year-old Shoji Morimoto has found a unique way to make money. According to reports, he charges his clients ¥10,000 (around US $96)each time they hire him to do nothing.

Sounds strange, you say? Well, at least he finally found a job he personally finds satisfying! Initially, Shoji offered his services for free via Twitter where he advertised himself as someone who can “eat and drink, and give simple feedback, but do nothing more.” He eventually established quite a reputation there and paying customers started coming.

Shoji Morimoto’s clients pay him to accompany them to different activities such as riding a helicopter, going to a theme park, and others. They also shoulder any necessary expenses.

Shoji formerly worked for a publisher but decided to leave the job because he didn’t feel it was right for him. And that’s when it hit him that maybe it’s time to make money doing nothing instead.

“I used to carry around this complex, that I need to do something, but I’m not good at anything,” he confessed. ”I tried a bunch of things that I thought I’d be suitable for, but nothing stuck. So I thought, ‘I’m not suited to do anything, maybe I’m more suited to do nothing.’”

His services later became a big hit on Twitter.

He said in an interview:

“I think the reason why people demand my services depends on the customer’s circumstances. I think it comes down to needing ‘the presence of one human being’ in a given situation.”

He has likewise been hired to be with customers during difficult moments in their lives.

For example, he was asked to stay with a patient who attempted to commit suicide. He also accompanied someone who filed for a divorce.

As he pointed out:

“I’m not a friend or an acquaintance. I’m free of the bothersome things that accompany relationships, but can ease people’s sense of loneliness. Maybe it’s something like that for me.”
