Japanese toy maker Takara Co. began to sell 30-centimeter-high dolls modeled after the Kano sisters, called Kano Sisters' Gorgeous Dolls, in March 2002. The dolls were priced at 19,800 yen a pair. The sisters are frequently invited to movie premieres, film festivals, and award ceremonies. Self-described "Lifestyle Consultants," Japanese women pay to attend Kano seminars to hear their advice on topics such as relationships and makeup. Businessmen pay them as much as $30,000 to make appearances at parties. The sisters are each a former Miss Nippon.
