Western brides don't study this stuff...

Shops that specialize in cleaning people's ears and massaging them are popping up around Tokyo. The concept behind the new establishments is to give Japanese people the pleasant feeling some had as children when they would rest their heads on their mothers' laps and have their ears cleaned.

Staff use an ear-pick equipped with a tiny camera to show the insides of clients' ears. A salon operator said she gets a good reaction with the device because people can see the wax buildup in their ears on the monitor.

Many women have said they want to learn how to remove earwax to please men, said another salon operator, adding she was thinking of starting classes to teach women ear cleaning and massage as part of their bridal training.
