The Takashimya in Singapore has People Greeters in the morning. The Takashimya People Greeters, though, are cute and demure Japanese women rather than the elderly. They wear sharp skirt suits, white gloves and three-inch heels and when you pass by, they smile and bow and say, "Konichi wa!" in that high, breathy voice which is either annoying or erotic, I can't decide which.
Yet another example of the Japanese taking an American Innovation and improving on it!!1
