Having beautiful skin ia considered to be epitome of beauty in Japan as it signifies youth and purity.
No wonder that beauty products for skin can be found everywhere in Japan.
I have a handful of friends here in Tokyo that are dating, engaged to, or married to people here in Japan and all of us have different “how I met my boyfriend” or “how I met my girlfriend” stories.
Some of these stories have little nuggets of wisdom for if you’re trying to meet someone in Japan; some don’t.
I found there are two “types” of ways to go about finding a potential Japanese boyfriend: the “nanpa” and the friend turned boyfriend.
But before I go further, I’d like to share a comment someone posted (that resonates with me): d that you are looking not just for “exotic goods” but for someone that you will love as a whole (not just because of their ethnicity).
What may be correct behavior for a Western woman to do in a relationship could possibly be rude, embarrassing, or both to a Japanese woman.
What may be considered an extremely loving gesture a Japanese girlfriend gives to her man may offer absolutely no feelings of love and affection to the man from his cultural point of view.
Typically men (especially white men) have a much easier time finding potential partners in Japan – so I geared this post specifically for women looking for a male partner in Japan.As the saying goes “You don’t have to eat less, you have to eat right”. The tip here is if you meet someone that you like, try maintain an eye contact and try to ask some questions.Prepare a good topic for a chitchat and before you part with him get his contacts, before you know it you are already preparing your new dress and a pair of shoes for your first date with him!Especially when given the fact that eventually you are going to have to communicate effectively.It may not come as a big surprise if you want to date a Japanese guy.
