Japanese people love to categorize people.

Sado vs. Maso, horoscopes, blood types, Chinese astrology, herbivorous vs. carnivorous, gal-type vs. onee-type (hip or princess), Kikokushijo vs. Jun-Japanese … it’s pretty much because if we don’t categorize ourselves, we are all the same homogeneous Japanese race with same height, same hair color, all from middle classed and mostly with some job and some money.

So we classify people to remember that we are all different. I have been writing about some of the category of Japanese boys, but it seems they just keep coming! So I made a new page to sum up the 8 different types of Japanese boys observed and reported by Momoko Shirakawa in the famous love consulting online-guide on Ozmall. Ozmall is a internet-based magaine targeted 20-30 something business girls.

So check out the 8 types of Japanese boys here! J-boys guide

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!
