"Model house tour offers men a 'wife' and 'child' played by actors"

Asahi Shimbun:

The model house tour was free of charge. Most of the applicants were single men aged between their 20s and 40s, but some were married or were planning to get married.

...

The model house tours, which come complete with a family played by an actress as a wife and a child actor for the daughter, were held for men in Tokyo’s Koganei in November.

...

Actors trained since the summer to respond quickly to unexpected situations that could have developed during the virtual experience.

The scenario included the husband relaxing with his wife on the balcony and helping his daughter with her homework.

The tour guests were allowed to spend about 15 minutes each with their make-believe family.
