    Tokyo Bay Traffic
    Tokyo Bay Traffic follows three characters through the illusory world of Tokyo's hostess clubs and a newly built theme park, Fresh Style New York (F.S.N.Y).<br/>Kang, a hard - working accountant, doesn't at first stand out from the group with which he spends his waking life. In The Tuna Club he cheers the hostesses in unison with his fellow colleagues. But directed by an undefined desire to escape, Kang convinces a colleague to accompany him to an avant - garde strip club in F.S.N.Y, a theme park on a man - made island off the coast of Tokyo and site of the dance theater, The Club of the Perfect Fragment. The performances he sees at the club obsess Kang and he returns alone a few nights later.<br/>Kang crosses paths with Livia, a dancer and one of F.S.N.Y.'s few permanent residents. Livia, daughter of an American GI and a Japanese army base hostess, has only recently left her Okinawan hometown in search of a better life in Tokyo. She quickly finds work in F.S.N.Y., choreographing dances and performing at the Club of the Perfect Fragment. She is subject to bouts of temporary amnesia.<br/>Then there is Ki - ku - ko, the one - eyed hostess, who approaches every situation like an improvisation. Unable to recognize their daughter or control her wildness, her parents force her to leave their house and set up on her own. She begins working as a hostess and develops multiple personas. Either she's working in disguise as Jaki - O at the hostess club Fu - fu's or she's experimenting with customers in the self - constructed erotic landscape of her apartment.<br/>The story culminates in two meetings: the first in the form of a dance of power between Ki - ku - ko and Livia. The second meeting is between Kang and the ineffable erotic energy he had heretofore been at such pains to neutralize.<br/>
