It might be a bit more difficult if you’re looking for a serious relationship as there are those women I mentioned earlier who either want you as “exotic accessory” or just want your DNA to create a cute “half-child”.

All in all, it is easy for a Western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan.

Japanese guys are often too shy, scared or whatever and the majority of Western men is only interested in Japanese / Asian women.

As a result it is tough to find a date as a foreign woman here in Japan.

Before we start talking about “Dating in Japan” one thing should be crystal clear: If you’ve ever been to Japan you might have noticed that there’s a tremendous number of (often not so handsome) foreign guys walking hand-in-hand with Japanese women.

However, be warned: If you want to read about bragging stories of all those Western guys who get laid a hundred times per day, then you came to the wrong place. You certainly won’t find that here – and not from a foreign girl like me!

Most foreign men on the other hand, have no issues approaching a Japanese woman in English – or even in broken Japanese.

These are just a few theories by friends, co-workers and myself.

For some guys it really gets to their heads and they start bragging about it like crazy as part of the superstar syndrome.

The complete opposite is the case for (Western) foreign women in Japan.

At least getting one woman after another into your bed, is really easy, even if you’re quite ugly!

For some reason Japanese women seem to find even ugly foreign guys attractive …..

For foreign women it’s a completely different story.
