When Jasmine over at Zooming Japan asked me to write about dating Japanese women, my first thought was, “Ain’t no way Ken Seeroi’s touching that one.” In case you haven’t noticed, people are majorly opinionated about Their Japan. And that’s just But you know, if there’s one thing Ken Seeroi never backs down from, it’s a challenge. But I can’t deny that I’ve heard that foreign guys are popular . And not just Japanese folks either; I mean foreigners. Oh now somebody else starts rambling about traditional homes being all infused with zen beauty, and rock gardens, and koi fish. Games where the player character is female and potential objects of affection are male are known as Gx B or otome games.Homosexual relationships are also possible, as there are games with no specific gender lines ("all pairings").The gameplay involves conversing with a selection of girls, attempting to increase their internal "love meter" through correct choices of dialogue.

Well, I don’t really either, but I imagine it’s that thing where if I say, “Japanese people are shy,” then you start noticing all the ways in which they’re shy. Basically about 99 percent of what’s written about Japan is just regurgitating some myth that somebody else said. It’s not that 100% of the people got lucky; it’s that you’re the only one who stayed around gawking. So I didn’t entirely relish wading into all this, but then Jasmine threw out a leading question I couldn’t resist: For one, I thought it was a strange question, partly because of the word “get,” which sounds like you’re going fishing for Japanese people. For another, I felt the real question was, “Is it easier to date in Japan than it is anywhere else?
