Here is a typical ad for a male host club (women pay to get in), this would have hot women on it if it was an ad for a club in the west:
Japan has both. You definitely have tons and tons of that same stuff but mostly only women available. The mass majority of them. The ones with men available, are around as well, but not the norm. They are quite a bit rarer to find, but they exist.

Your post makes it sound like everything is inverse and the opposite. It's not.

Yuck, all these men in the picture look like sort of "refined/softcore version" of transexuals/****.

Welcome to the world. Not all countries think "lumbersexual" men like Chris Pratt are ideal. Europe ain't far behind in that regard, the metrosexual here is popular.

Well, at this point, I don't think there's much of a choice. There will be a big population drop off. Fewer young people are procreating, and so the numbers of the older generation won't be replaced. Incentives and government-backed social campaigns aren't doing much.

I am interested to see how the work and family culture, which is what's responsible for this population time bomb, will change in the next couple generations as a result of all of this.

Well, it'll probably be a modern twist on what family dynamics and work culture was like prior to the population boom. The same thing is going to happen across the entire West. But, this is short term pain for long term gain. The pension crisis can be managed if hard choices are willing to be made. In the end, less people is a good thing.

There is some talk that labor shortages will force Japan to grant work visas to more foreigners and that will start the ball rolling on cultural "broadening"

Most likely not going to happen. Not only they see that as a policy failure in the West, most Japanese are not willing to open up to immigration. For some reason, Westerners desperately want Japan to open up to mass immigration, but it's not going to happen. Even the young generation are not open to immigration. Japan has already chosen to automate its workforce more and more. Japan leads the world in robotics because they see robots, not poor immigrants from South and Southeast Asia and Westerners with a Japanese female fetish as the replacement for a shrinking population. This is Asia we're talking about.

Work visas are granted quite easily already. The beauty of them is once you own one, you can change jobs to anything you want, good for 5 years.

Becoming a Japanese person with voting rights, and on and on, now that is the problematic one.

This 'study' is about as valid as those maps about the size of penis around the world.

Those guys by American standards are far from metrosexual they are more feminine appearing than 90% of gays in the USA, many of whom are not at all metrosexual or feminine appearing btw. I'm not being critical just pointing out the obvious.
