For many western men, dating a Japanese woman is a fantasy come true.Mystery, myth and a special kind of sensuality surrounds Japanese women.
He might be judging Japanese women based on his cultural values without taking into account the Japanese context.I came across a blog post by zoomingjapn, a German girl living in Japan, writing about dating in Japan as a foreigner. She writes, ‘It is comparably easy for a western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan’, but ‘it is extremely tough to find a date as a foreign woman here in Japan.’ Her story is interesting in itself but the most interesting part of the article is the huge number of comments gets – 162 comments (or about 30,000 words! A lot of people who commented actually disagree with her.In particular, non-Japanese guys tend to disagree because they don’t think it’s easy to date Japanese girls. Overall, does it mean that it’s hard to date Japanese people regardless of your gender? If you are in a foreign country with a completely different culture, it is logical that you might have a hard time dating.Somewhere in the minds of the males from the west is the thought that every Japanese woman could give a man the experience of a geisha.Well, not quite, but then, unless you date one, you will never really find out, will you?My personal experience also tells me that dating in Japan is completely feasible and a lot of my friends seem to be doing OK with dating here.
Then the real question is this: what is the difference between successful and unsuccessful people?
For example, for dating that will lead to marriage and that is in accordance with the Japanese culture, first, there is gokon (blind dates with friends), then there is kokohaku which is where you say “I love/like you” which is taken as an expression of interest to take her out.
After that, there is “meet the parents”, more private dates and eventually, marriage.
However, if you would like to date a woman and marry her eventually, then much more is involved.
Thus, your dating conduct will be guided by the expectations of your relationship.
A woman’s social class, education level, race or culture does not matter.
