Even at the moment of reading this you will find in this group some who are working to reach a target on one side. Shoji Morimoto, a 38-year-old from Tokyo, Japan, earns a salary without doing any work. Don’t you feel a little jealous when you hear that?
Shoji is paid 10,000 yen (5633 rupees) in Japanese currency for simply following people around and doing nothing with them. In the last four years, Shoji has participated in about 4000 such meetings, according to Reuters, an international media.

Basically, I rent myself out. “My job is to be where my clients want me to be and not do anything in particular,” Morimoto told Reuters. With about 250,000 followers on Twitter, Morimoto said most clients contact him only through the micro-blogging site.
One of them rented Morimoto about 270 times. Despite this, Morimoto has certain conditions in choosing a job. Morimoto had previously turned down an offer to go to Cambodia and replace a fridge. Morimoto is also said to not accept sexual requests.
Prior to this, Morimoto worked in a publishing company. But he was reprimanded by the people there for not doing anything there. Now, it is Morimoto’s livelihood that is most remarkable. People think it’s better for me to do nothing.
Others find it very useful. But it’s really better to do nothing. Morimoto says that not everyone has to be useful to others in any particular way.
