Gaijin dating japan
Pretty much the entire reason my husband hates it when we go clubbing is because a lot of Japanese men go to nightclubs (especially “foreign nightclubs”) to meet Western women.
I can’t count the number of American/European friends who have gotten a date and/or a good time from someone they met at a nightclub.
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.
I found there are two “types” of ways to go about finding a potential Japanese boyfriend: the “nanpa” and the friend turned boyfriend.
It’s a great way to meet people in Japan (both dating and friends). If the website is in Japanese, you have a much higher chance of running into a Japanese man at the events.
If you don’t speak Japanese, I highly recommend trying the Tokyo Meetup events (
Also, funny plug, Ryosuke and I were on national Japanese TV earlier this month. Aikido, Kendo, Karate, and Kyudo martial arts clubs are a great way to meet Japanese people AND learn a lot about the culture.
If you want to make some money on the side, not worry about putting yourself out there, and meet Japanese men, teaching private English lessons is the job for you.
Many people do private English lessons in Japan (especially in college/if they’re young). Most are just meeting up with the “student” (businessman, housewife, teenager, etc) and talk for an hour and talk in English. A lot of my friends used the website Hello Sensei (you make a profile, list your price, etc, and students contact you directly).
They can be pricey (depending on the sport), but I highly recommend joining a martial arts team.
Members often get together outside of practice (or hang out in between breaks), making it a great way to get closer to a Japanese man you are potentially interested in dating.
