This kind of activity is a fixture in Japanese society starting with university, where clubs (sometimes called ‘circles’) will go on together so that guys and girls can mingle.
The practice continues in the working world where, with Japan’s rigorous work culture, time to meet potential dates is limited.
I'm hoping to move back and I KNOW dating is the last goal on my list.
If I were a man it might be easier but I know as a woman..I better get my man for .99 out a plastic box.
Although I’ve been in Japan for 6 years now, I totally lack that kind of experience.
Instead I asked friends and fellow bloggers, who have had Japanese boyfriends or are even married to a Japanese man, to share their personal experience with us.

Not everyone is going to like me but I know my blackness was one of the reasons why I was rejected. While I'm glad it seems a lot of women would date black men, and it looks like things have changed since me moving there, I still think it's hard for black people to find love in Japan.
