The Japan Times website released a very positive article about the Understanding Japanese Women e-book! I’m so ecstatic that a source as credible as The Japan Times Online would write about it in the way that it was intended to be viewed – as a serious e-book to help Western men truly understand the dating and relationship culture of Japan and to offer honest solutions [Continued…]

Clash of cultures – a bad mix for dating

Here’s an interesting tid-bit I just learned the other day: In China, small talk during a meal is considered very important to couples out on a date. Not to talk while eating could be considered impolite or a sign of no interest in the other person. Sounds normal wouldn’t you say? But in contrast, Japanese dating couples often sit in semi-silence while eating, only to [Continued…]

Japanese Relationships: It’s not always your fault!

I recently received an e-mail from man who just became “enlightened” (so to speak.) Right after he finished reading the Understanding Japanese Women eBook he sat down behind his computer to tell me this: “My Japanese wife and I have been having problems recently. Your book is helping me realize that not all of the problems are made by me!” Whether you have a Japanese [Continued…]

The “Quiet-Life” of Japanese Marriages

In this post we’ll talk about… well… not talking. Marriage with a Japanese woman certainly is an adventure… especially when she prefers not to talk. Unlike marriages in the West (where it is encouraged to keep the conversation flowing between both members as long as the marriage lasts) Japanese women yearn to have a marriage where unspoken understanding becomes the normal way to “communicate.”

Understanding Japanese Culture DOES Matter!

I was planning on writing a “stunning” comparison between the Japanese relationship culture and the Chinese relationship culture (a new hobby of mine) until I received an e-mail from a newsletter member – and off I go a ranting… Understanding Japanese culture DOES matter! There, I got it off my chest. You see, the e-mail I received talked about how your Japanese girlfriend should love [Continued…]

It is important to show your love to your Japanese girlfriend, but it’s a completely different thing to smother her to the point of disgusting her.

Japanese Culture is a MAJOR influence your relationships with Japanese women

Japanese women are mysterious in more than just outward appearances – they have a deep, inner mystery called culture that makes building successful relationships with them a challenge to anyone lacking the knowledge of the Japanese dating and relationship customs. Contrary to what many men believe, all women world-wide do not act exactly the same way in romantic relationships. What may be correct behaviour for [Continued…]

Country Girl: Is she a Japanese woman?

Many years ago when I was still working as an English teacher here in Japan I had the opportunity to teach an amazing Japanese woman… I was sitting down in my favorite cafe where I taught most of my private English students. Across from me sat my new student — a 43 year-old Japanese woman who had lived in America for over 13 years. I [Continued…]

Yellow Fever and Japanese Women

Many a man interested in dating Japanese women has probably been accused of succumbing to “yellow fever.” I get accused from time to time of promoting it. So in this article, I’d like to address the following two points: Is simply being attracted to Japanese women considered yellow fever? What I believe REAL yellow fever is.

The Need to Move On

There are many men who, with an almost indescribable feeling of desperation, refuse to let go of an ex-girlfriend (Japanese or otherwise) or oppose the notion of giving up on any potential girlfriend. You can’t get her out of your mind. You eat, drink, and breathe her essence every waking moment. Your heart aches with the thought of not having her… not being with her… [Continued…]

Bridging the Cultural Gap with Japanese Women

About 3 or 4 years ago while visiting my favorite forum on Japan, I came across the following question posted by one of its members: “What kind of men are Japanese women attracted to?” There were quite a few replies, but one of them stood out above the rest: “All you have to be is a man from the West!” While it is true that [Continued…]
