American man dating japanese women
With this in mind, while it may take time for ideas to change within Japan, it seems probable that as more and more Japanese nationals spend time outside their home country, the number of international relationships and marriages may also increase. Is it only a matter of time before the sight of a Japanese guy with a Western girl becomes a common one on the streets of Tokyo?
This gives us a ratio of just under 5-to-1 in favor of men.
For Americans, where the gender gap is 2-to-1 for long-term residence, the marriage gap is more than 5-to-1 in favor of men (1,088 to 201 marriages in 2014, and 1,127 to 199 in 2015).
The next time you're walking around in Tokyo, try this quick experiment: look for couples comprising a Western man and a Japanese woman, and count them. Now look for the opposite: Japanese men with Western women. If we look at official statistics for Japanese residents from Western countries (as of the 2016 census), men certainly outnumber women in Japan—by a ratio of almost 2-to-1 if we exclude short-term residents and diplomats (it's 3-to-2 if they're included).
We'll bet a dinner and beer that the first case will far outnumber the second. However, let's take a closer look the difference for a moment.
