 Reward to the “IANFU” comfort women is written in detail to the following U.S. Army report at ww2.
http://www.exordio.com/1939-1945/codex/Documentos/report-49-USA-orig.html
Report No. 49: Japanese POW Interrogation on Prostitution.
UNITED STATES OFFICE OF WAR INFORMATION
Psychological Warfare Team Attached to U.S. Army Forces
India-Burma Theater APO 689
Japanese Prisoner of War Interrogation
Report No. 49. Place interrogated: Ledo Stockade
Date Interrogated: Aug. 20 – Sept. 10, 1944
Date of Report: October 1, 1944
By: T/3 Alex Yorichi
Prisoners: 20 Korean Comfort Girls
Date of Capture: August 10, 1944
Date of Arrival: August 15, 1994 at Stockade

1. Soldiers 10 AM to 5 PM 1.50 yen 20 to 30 minutes

2. NCOs 5 PM to 9 PM 3.00 yen 30 to 40 minutes

3. Officers 9 PM to 12 PM 5.00 yen 30 to 40 minutes

These were average prices in Central Burma. Officers were allowed to stay overnight for twenty yen. In Myitkyina Col. Maruyama slashed the prices to almost one-half of the average price.

PAY AND LIVING CONDITIONS;

The “house master” received fifty to sixty per cent of the girls’ gross earnings depending on how much of a debt each girl had incurred when she signed her contract. This meant that in an average month a girl would gross about fifteen hundred yen. She turned over seven hundred and fifty to the “master”. Many “masters” made life very difficult for the girls by charging them high prices for food and other articles.

 

 They earn 1500 yen month.  They repay the half to” masters”, and 750 yen remains at hand. It becomes 750(yen)×12=9000(yen) when it is one year.
In Japan, value of money is very different from this age in modern days.
How much value does this amount of money “9000 yen” have at that time?
I shows the annual salary of the Japanese army according to the class at that time. 

(As of July, 1943)
General             6600 yen
Lieutenant general     5800 yen
Major General                5000 yen
Colonel                          4440-3720 yen
Commander                   3720-2640 yen
Major                              2640-2040 yen
Captain                          1860-1470 yen
Liutenant                       1130-1020 yen
Second lieutenant           850 yen
It is a salary as follows.
Sergeant major                 75-32 yen
Sergeant                           32-23 yen
Corporal                            20 yen
Lance Corporal                 13.5 yen
Superior soldier                10.5 yen
Senior soldier                     9 yen
Junior soldier                      9-6 yen

 The rewards to them are higher than the annual salary of the general.

 Ms.Mun Ochs who lives in South Korea (68 years old)  worked as a comfort woman for 2 years and three months.
 She visited the Shimonoseki post office in  Shimonoseki City, Yamaguchi prefecture, Japan on May 11, 1992. She was requesting the payment of military savings entrusted during the war in Myanmar (old Burma).The ledger of her savings was kept in the Shimonoseki post office.
 It recorded 12 savings from June, 1943 to September, 1945, and the balance was 26,145 yen according to the ledger.
(From the Mainichi Shimbun news paper report on May 22, 1992. )

 She saved a near amount of money in four years of the annual salary of the general in two years and three months .

This is realities of “sex slaves”
