For those whose family life is less than ideal, a new service helps fill the void.

對於那些家庭生活不甚理想的人們,一項新型的服務對填補缺憾有所裨益。

 

  For most people, there’s no question about how important family is. But for many in Japan, where traditional family values are important, the concept of family first is taken to a whole new level. What if your family status isn’t the greatest, though? In Japanese society, that’s where the concept of the “rental family” comes to the rescue.

  對於多數人來說,家庭有多重要是無庸置疑的。但是對於許多重視傳統家庭價值觀的日本人來說,「家人至上」的觀念被提升到了一個全新的境界。但要是你的家庭狀況不是最好的該怎麼辦呢?在日本社會中,「租賃家人」的概念因此應時而生。

 

  One company that rents out family members for a variety of purposes is called Family Romance. The business began over a decade ago. Back then, a friend of company founder Ishii Yuichi needed a favor. She was a single mother, and her son was denied entry into a kindergarten because she wasn’t married. So, Ishii went along to the interview, posing as the boy’s father, to give the interviewers the picture of the perfect family. Thus, Family Romance was born.

  一家稱為「浪漫家庭」的公司出於各種目的而出租家庭成員。這家公司創辦於十幾年前。當時公司創始人石井裕一有位朋友需要幫忙。她是一位單親媽媽,而她的兒子由於她沒有結婚,所以幼兒園拒收。因此,石井假扮成男孩的爸爸前往參加入學面談,給了面試官一個完美家庭的形象。就這樣,「浪漫家庭」誕生了。

 

  Today, Family Romance employs over 1,200 actors who can be husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, grandmas, grandpas, or just about anyone. Ishii himself has played the father in over 25 families and portrayed the husband of more than 600 women.

  「浪漫家庭」如今僱用了一千兩百多位的演員,這些人可以是你的丈夫、妻子、兄弟姐妹、奶奶、爺爺,或是任何親屬。石井本身就曾扮演過超過二十五個家庭中的父親,以及飾演過六百多名婦女的丈夫。
