Do Japanese women like Indian men?
Answered Oct 30, 2017
Love is Love and Marriage is more complicated than LOVE.
Many years ago when i went on a trip i saw a family, husband was definitely Indian and wife was Japanese. Her mother was also with them and as a kid i remember thinking “Wow, they are so white and has big round face”.
2015 Miss Japan was Ms Priyanka Yoshikawa - Wikipedia Who’s father is from Bengal India. Unfortunately She doesn't recognize her half Indian side and consider as Japanese Only. Even though Her great-grandfather Prafulla Chandra Ghosh was the first Chief Minister of West Bengal.
If you search YouTube you will find some Indian Japanese wedding videos. Some are NRIs and 3nd generation Japanese settled in USA.
Basically A Inter- nation, Inter faith marriage needs lots of adjustment and understanding. Either Boy had lived as expat in Japan for long (there are few people) or Japanese girl would come and work in India and stay for a while (Very rare). As i only mentioned Indian Men and Japanese women because I have yet to stumble upon such case where Japanese Man married Indian women. There could be, but its less than Indian men marry Japanese Girl.
When you find some one special to marry within your community finance matters a little less than this International marriages. Usually women do look at financial situation of a person before decide to marry and if boy is Financially strong then it favors the marriage. (Its another thing if both are struggling)
In case of marriage, one of the side has to make compromise and leave the country and settling in new country with new culture is not easy job/
So even if Japanese women like Indian men, its bit tough for them to decide to go ahead and marry. Culture, beliefs, religion, food habits, financial situation etc many things affect when decision about marriage will be taken. So it changes on many levels of these variants changes.
So if men decided to stay in Japan then Japanese women may decide to say yes upon proposal.
Since Japanese people are still homogeneous, they are not use to inter racial marriages (In India as well). Mixed race Kids often bullied in Japan and are called as Hafu, They will have bit tough environment growing up. People wont accept completely.
Here is an Indian Japanese couple.
I guess it happens, as Indians are marrying chines. Koreans, Africans etc. Today world is more open to each other a lot more than it was 20 yrs ago. That changes a lots of things.

I am not sure on how I am adding to this post but i feel digressed when i read the post, the question is about the Indian Men and not about the country and comparison of the two countries. I am not sure, how bath tubs, food habits, road structure and Infrastructure of a country has something to do with Love or liking. I think the very basic condition of love or likeliness is attraction, not the race to which a person belongs.Wondering can the question be generalized that can women like a person from a specific region, its a personal choice and not related to the country. I would agree that people have a perception in mind but that is just a perception, you have to break it and move ahead and talk to the each other without being stereotype and carrying an impression in your mind and that's how the relation works, its not good to judge people just by their race, caste, color or any other identification. In case, its related to race then ideally a Japanese women should like all Japanese men but its never so, its just finding the right one and that can be any one.

For getting committed for a long term relationship, the answer is YES, Indian guys can find suitable Japanese girls. The more homely and conservative kind of girls of Japan speak honestly and like to have a true and deep relationship. They can be very shy initially and turn very sweet if you reciprocate their feelings. Getting a formal start with these girls is easy. But continuing with them through text messages is a severe pain. You need extreme levels of patience as they initially take time to allocate time for you in their hectic schedule. They can take one or two days to reply you. College girls have lots of homeworks and also do part time jobs and hence don't have much time for socializing. Working women can be comparatively better in responding to you. If you get overenthusiastic with their replies and try to extend the chat, they get to think that you can be a potential nuisance and they gradually start to reduce their chats. But if you strike a balance and gradually (very slowly) win their trust, they would find time for you and go out with you. Golden rules like physical advancements at third date doesn't hold good with Japanese girls. Spend time with them, get to understand them and open their hearts. This could get you a “more than you expected” life partner. Indians can find such girls relatively easier than the next type below.
For casual flings, Indian guys have to literally punch above their weight. The girls for casual dating and flings idolize the Western supremacy. An English speaking white guy can be an instant eye turner for these kind of girls. Most often you will be avoided (this is a subtle, involuntary, yet consistent kind of racism shown by most girls of this type, not all). Perhaps if you are an active flirter with acceptable looks and good fitness, you can be successful in casual pickups. But again, it's next to impossible if a white guy starts to compete with you. Black guys also seem to have an advantage over Indian men (for obvious reasons). But after you get over the super tough initial stumble, you might learn the trick to find success in subsequent casual flings.
Whatever kind of women you are looking for, don't lose hope, keep trying. Japanese women are kind of exotic and sophisticated when compared to other asian countries. Try your best efforts to speak Japanese, girls find your mistakes to be extremely cute. Having a well maintained beard may either go for or against you (can't exactly place it). Be well groomed, slightest body odor (and perhaps dandruff) can make you loose all the brownie points that you had scored earlier. Most girls are fond of cats and small dogs, use it for extending your chats. Positive comments on their eyes can get you gains. Comparing their cuteness to dolphins and/or the moon can make them go week on their knees..! They are also amused by specific Indian topics such as Taj Mahal, yoga, Himalayas, naan and curry, these can come in handy..!
PS: These are personal observations and opinions from other guys from the Indian Subcontinent. The topic as such, warrants the use of racist comments. I am extremely sorry if any of these remarks hurt anyone as I never intended to.

Well, hate to be bearer of bad news but mmm no I don’t think indian men are popular among japanese women. Which is weird because lately there are an increasingly number of women interested in Yoga and therefore in going to India. But no… not much indian guys.
But I have known one girl who liked them. So there is hope :) She told me a interesting story, when she went to india she commented to another woman part of the tour “lots of hot guys here uh?”, and the other one said “What??”

As this question is anonymous I have a hunch that probably you are an Indian male interested in Japanese women/woman.
If that's the case let me tell you one thing-
Love is not a simple mathematical equation, where if LHS=RHS the problem is solved and you can live happily ever after. There is a X factor going on always, which can make two extreme opposite personalities fall in love with each other OR two people who had mutual respect, affection and share a lot of common things become friends rather than lovers.
So, if even Japanese women were head over heels for Indian men, then too there is no assurance they will like you, instead to your great frustration you can see all Indian men you know are getting Japanese lovers and mysteriously they are overlooking you.
In the same way, Japanese women may hate Indians in general but, thanks to that X-factor they all may find you most eligible bachelor on this planet.

Well as many people have already mentioned. Liking a person goes beyond Nationality. It goes way deeper than that alone. I may like someone within my own nationality or other based on preferences, comfort level, companionship and so on.
I have had a few Japanese friends over the years. Some of them were quite open to dating Indian men. We did share some common interests - could be movies, cooking, baking, rock climbing, exploring language, politics etc. Its always been a nice experience. I have met them abroad, so they tend to have greater exposure to worldly matters. Awareness is more. Japanese woman in Japan may fit the stereotype of not being too fond of South Asian men and preferring Europeans and Americans.
A lot of them I met outside, who had exposure were very keen to becoming friends and pursuing a future ahead. So I will add the dimension of exposure which makes them more open to dating and possibly marrying men of South Asian Descent. They are quite enamoured with the mystics of history, spirtuality, science, yoga, beyond the Bollywood’s and Chicken Tikka’s. They were quite interested and intrigued owing to the life experiences, intellect beyond regional background.
So again, like every other nationality, it comes down to open mindedness and exposure which makes them comfortable with the idea of a foreign partner.

I don't think Indian men are popular amoung Japanese women.
I think Anwesh Pati has written an excellent answer for this question, which contains some facts that I agree with as a Japanese and some that I hear from Japanese friends.
I have been asked to answer this question, but I am just a Japanese living in Japan who has never been to India, and Indian people I met in Japan are less than 20 people. I don't know if this helps but I will write the impresson that I've got by meeting some Indian people.
I have two close friends from India (actually they were born in India and moved to other countries). I met one of them when he was doing intern in Japan and I met the other girl when she came to Japan for travel. I can't explain well the difference from other Indians, but they are open minded and asked me lots of questions and showed their interest towards Japan or myself. For other people from India I met, they were all IT engineers and they came to Japan just because they got a job here. Non of them seemed like they were interested in Japan or the culture and conversation with them didn't last long. If they are not interested in Japanese culture, I think they should find a Japanese woman who are interested in Indian culture.

Why is this question even here - it is a very irrelevant thing. Anyway I shall try to answer from my perspective.
There is no single answer to this, but based on my experiences I have observed that the more mature and well traveled Japanese women are apparently neutral, and if you have a definite interest in Japan, they appreciate much.
About university or young adults - I have absolutely no Idea.
Since I knew Japanese and had a thing for their movies (not into manga and Anime that much), I could start a conversation depending on the place and the person. Well I would not start a discussion with someone whom I perceive would be unable to quench my insatiable curiosity about culture and philosophy. Hence I often choose people who were intellectually capable (apparently), and engaged in various pubs/eateries and even office.
Well every one has a stereo type about all races, but when you talk your inner qualities come to the surface, and that applies to everyone. If the question is about getting laid - then there are ample places to do it in Japan by paying or free.
I lived in Ebisu and Nihonbashi neighborhoods which have a large cosmopolitan network and there were westerners who had married japanese women and settled down. So being close to them I got gradually introduced to many japanese women who were culturally aware or well traveled and were the least prejudiced.
Though I wasnt interested in dating as I was already engaged, still had a memorable time going out for the occasional Karoke, or having copious amounts of sake together in the local Izakaya. Being a proud drinker I am, usually I have the knack of getting to know the pubs and the owners wherever I go - across the world. Which leads to getting to know other patron gradually, discussion about politics, philosophy and the network grows. Eventually leading to friendships irrespective of gender, and wonderful memories. Brotherhood of the drunken and free.
However if you want me to be very neutral about perspective about India in Japan - I can very well say the top foreigners are Americans, Europeans (Whites) as usual all over the world including India, then surprisingly Blacks finally Browns. I am still trying to find why, but have left Japan before I could do so.

Anyone can like anyone based on the situations and conditions. I know a Canadian guy of Indian descent who worked in the US at a Japanese run school for Autistic children. He dated two Japanese women he worked with, of which the second he married. They moved back to Canada and have a daughter. I think part of what made the relationship possible was that he was into Japanese culture and hung out with a lot of the Japanese staff at the school.

Let me answer this question like this way
What makes Indian men different from others
Now most of our fellow Indian don't know exactly about his own people . Now 2nd thing I know it out of my personal experience ... I. A relationship or for a marriage 3 things are very important
LANGUAGE , SOCIAL AND CULTURAL KNOWLEDGE AND MENTAL FITNESS (WHY I SAIF MENTAL FITNESS IS BCOZ A MATURE MIND IS NOT ENOUGH IF HE OR SHE CANT RELATE TO ANOTHER MIND)
Now I have seen Japanese or Korean or such people are comfortable with northeast Indians rather than other Indians . There are few couples I have meet during my professional life .
Example life a German girl married to an northeast Indian for last 16 years and lives at tinsukia of Assam state. 2 couples I have meet during hornbill festival of arunachal , they are happily married for last 18 years with 2 son .
In Nagaland beat boxing championship I have meet 4 more couples .
So what I have understood with those experience for a marriage one need to communicate and for that you need a common language skills . That. Your life style and values of life must shrink to each other ..
Even for me , I am from Assam and my girlfriend is from Canada . We are in relationship for last 6 years and she is living here in Shillong with my family for last 2 years .
So first satisfaction of those 3 common element that. Every relationship works with any where in the world
Communicate to express not to impress for that one need a common language. Second mental fitness with MATURE mind to eliminate the differences between both CULTURE and social values and finally fre m of life
Majority of world assumes Indians follows the Indian family traditional rules but in my society that's not true
It's up to our choice what we will wear , what kind of girl I want to get married etc
And don't to be offended if we compare the northeast society and culture than its much more open than rest of India ..
That why other foreign girls hesitate about Indian men . My girlfriend also had some confusion about my society but in last two years she found not much differences with her own society except the traditional dresses and few local languages .. that's it ...

Honestly, this question is subjective, ridiculous, and quite amusing.
I don’t think race has much to do about it at all really. I think it is based on attraction, nothing more. Attraction being wit, charm, humour, etc... Carnal attraction is important as well, but that’s one piece of the whole.
I am of Irish/English and Southern Indian descent. I am fair-skinned and fairly tall. Quite a few woman I’ve met in Japan have asked me my race, or where I’m from, etc... When I tell them I’m half Indian they’re usually gobsmacked. However, it has yet to put a damper on the conversation.. in truth they’ve seemed more interested in my heritage after that.
Furthermore, I’m covered in tattoos! So, no matter what others may tell you tattoos are very much a taboo here(at least in Osaka), even as a gaijin. Even then it hasn’t really stopped my conversations, rather quite the opposite. Yes, I do get stares and people whispering about me but that happened even when I was living back home.
Truth is, humans like to lump ourselves up by commonality. “He’s ‘insert race’ like me so we have common ground”, “she speaks ‘random language’ that I feel more natural speaking in so I’ll chat her”; so yes, women from Japan may not inherently be attracted to men from India. But I believe all people impartial to race are intrinsically attracted to a person who will treat them well, respect them, and consider them as equals. Unless you’re racist or a sexual bigot, then you suck.
So, to answer this farcical question. Yes, no, and maybe.
Be bold. Go find out yourself rather then asking opinions from others who aren’t you. I think you’ll be surprised with the answer you find. ;)

I don't wanna be rude here. But since I don't wanna be dishonest either, I'm going to say this anyway.
Indian men are not at all appealing to me as an Indian woman itself. And no, I'm not talking about looks or any such shallow thing. Indian men have a bad mentality regarding women, love, sex and relationships. Don't get me wrong, I didn't say Indian men suck. In fact, my male friends have been much closer to me in times of need. They make great friends and are very good people if you're their mom, sister, friend, daughter or colleague. But when it comes to relationships, they don't do very well. They don't know how to talk to a woman they are interested in, they have a very bad mentality regarding women(like they are sex objects) and that women shouldn't have a sex drive else they are sluts etc. Indian men have pretty bad notions regarding these topics.
If you're not a 'typical Indian male' then you might have a chance. But if you talk about the overall image, Indian men don't really have a good image all over the world.
Sad but true.

Most women like loving, kind, generous, attentive men. Evolved people take the characteristics of a human into considering when choosing a mate, not race. So I would say an evolved woman who is looking for certain characteristics in a man finds those in an Indian man then She would like an Indian man
