If you are going to be with someone outside of the country it takes a lot of heart, if you’re only looking for a “Japanese boyfriend” then you aren’t going to find someone you love.Instead, you might find a thing you wanted, break their heart, and discard it because it wasn’t the wonderful easy fantasy that you hoped it would be.If you dress nicely and stand in front of a sign, in a matter of time, someone will come up to you and help you out. Sometime they are a young Japanese female adult who studied abroad; sometimes they are a young, attractive Japanese man who wants to help out a lost foreigner. If not, thank them for their help and follow their directions (and come back a bit later and stand in front of the sign).I know this because I’ve gotten lost a number of times and have been approached/hit on by a guy trying to help me find my way in this city (and by the way, do I need a tour guide? They’re usually very nice when I politely decline and tell them I’m married.I also know a couple that met at random on the train, started talking, hit it off, and are still together, two years later. If you don’t mind dating and/or ‘going steady’ with a Japanese man who is married, you shouldn’t have any problems. I wouldn’t do it (personally), but I have a number of friends who have.
The Japanese man just walked up (not subtle at all) and asked if I was at the bar alone. It didn’t work out in the end, but she had a fun time.
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 (
The only downsides are the price (clubs can be anywhere from 2,000yen to 5,000yen as an entrance fee) and you really have no way of knowing if the Japanese man hitting on you is married (he often is). Friends meet friends, boyfriends wait for their girlfriends to show up.
If you hang out alone (or with another female friend), there’s a pretty high chance someone will come up to you and start chatting.
