'I'm not a pure girl any more': Chinese woman tells all about working as a bar hostess in Japan

On a balmy autumn night, a Chinese woman walks under colourful LED lights on a street in Shanghai. She just wants to be called by her Japanese name Hikaru, which means light. The 28-year-old real estate agent has a past that many women of her age can never imagine — she realises now that she lost her innocence.
