Welcome to Tokyo Meet Market

Who’s this girl?

My background:

Born in Tokyo, Japan in 1983, I spent my childhood in a Japanese bourgeois family, playing the piano, learning English, and going to a private all-girls-catholic-school .

My life changed when our family moved to New York when I was 10 years old. It was in New York where I went through puberty and adolescence, identity crisis and rebellious phase, developing my self identity as an American girl.

After graduating from college, I moved Boston to start working. After 4 years working and having fun in Boston, I recently moved to Tokyo to work in the Tokyo branch of the firm, leaving the US where I lived for over 15 years.

And here I am now, back in Tokyo and ready to enter the Tokyo meet market for the first time!

Dear Ms. Cherie,

This is some interesting stuff! I am about to attend my gokon party 2 weeks from now (after 8 months in Japan!). I will take a good look at your blog tonight when I get home since I really need it. Since I can barely speak Japanese, I wonder what would be the best way to approach the girls? Anyways, thank you for making this blog and I will make sure to drop by more often.

What is Tokyo Meet Market?

From the Western perspective, what goes on in the Japanese dating scene is really different and interesting! In this shy nation of Japan, meeting new people is almost institutionalized, dating and romance is littered with conventions that protect people from social awkwardness. What are dating conventions and rules in Japan? How do the shy Japanese people meet new people, develop affection, and express their passion? As I research and answer these question, I will write a real time report of what's going on in the Tokyo dating scene, or the "Tokyo Meet Market" here in this blog. I hope you enjoy my blog and a trip around Tokyo Meet Market with me!
