5 Best Japanese Dating Sites that are CRAZY Popular in 2019

5 Best Japanese Dating Sites

Ah Japan, the country of the rising sun. Apart from the lighted-up streets of Tokyo, peaceful villages of Kyoto and cherry blossom trees on every corner, Japan also has a massive dating community.

In the modern era, dating can be hard at times, whether it is because of our fear of rejection or we have bad experiences with dating.

But luckily there is a high number of dating apps and online dating sites which make dating that much easier.

The great thing about these dating sites is that you just create an account, select what you’re looking in a partner and you can start searching for people to chat, meet or even end up having a relationship.

Today we are going to be talking about the best Japanese dating sites for you to check out.

Most of these apps are going to be for foreign users who don’t know how to speak Japanese so you don’t have to worry about a language barrier stopping you from meeting a Japanese woman.

Let’s begin!

Description

Although not a Japanese dating app, Bumble has been taking a storm in the Japanese dating community over the past few years since it was first launched.

Like other famous dating apps such as Tinder, you swipe left or right on profiles you want to match and it has pretty much all the features of any other dating app.

What sets this dating app apart from others is the way you interact with other members and most dating apps and websites are designed to let you message anyone, whether you are male or female.

However, on Bumble, women are supposed to message first and this allows women to make the first move so that they can get a nice conversation going and avoid tons of messages from guys there not even interested in.

Because the roles are shifted, it’s easier to get a match with a Japanese woman if she finds your profile appealing and you won’t have to do anything but wait.

Signing up is easy and you can even sign up via Facebook and you will instantly get matches after you link the app with your Facebook account based on your personal preferences.

Some of the preferences include sexual orientation, age, range, and distance.

By these preferences, you are being presented with accounts and you will continue to receive suggested matches as long as there’s someone who matches your preference.

All in all, although this app is similar to Tinder, it feels like a more grown-up version and is truly one of the best Japanese dating apps in my opinion.

Pros

  • Because the woman is expected to make the first move it makes it easier for you as a guy to make matches.
  • Most of the features are free and you don’t have to make a subscription to enjoy the app fully.
  • The signing up process is quick and easy so you will be on the app, ready to swipe away in just a few minutes.
  • The quality of profiles is higher than most dating apps.
  • There are a lot of beautiful foreign female users.

Cons

  • There is no search option, you just swipe on profiles.

Who is it best for?

Who is it best for?

Bumble is best for guys who are tired of making the first move and girls who are tired of getting tons of messages from guys they’re not interested in. So it is a win-win situation on both sides.

Also, Bumble is great for anyone in search of gorgeous foreign women, especially from Japan, as it has a huge Japanese membership and the app is getting more popular each day.

FAQ

How can I report an account?

To report an account, simply scroll down to the bottom of their profile and select the “Block and report” button. You will be asked to choose a reason why you are reporting the account and also you can provide a brief explanation of your situation.

Why has my picture been moderated?

Bumble will moderate your profile picture if it contains some of the following:

  • Nudity or erotic content
  • Swimwear or underwear selfies in the bathroom
  • If someone under the age of 18 is in the photo
  • Your photo contains a watermark
  • You have uploaded a photo of someone who isn’t you and are presenting yourself as that person

If you think that your photo is moderated by mistake, contact their Customer Services.

  • Green is for “Up for some fun, a serious relationship or whatever”

Like the other OkCupid websites, this Japanese one also has the standard features and because the whole OkCupid franchise has over 50 million monthly users and 1 million daily logins you are bound to find at least 10 matches a day.

You can search for members by using filters to set up your personal preference and you can also see who is online right now and send them a message.

Also, the matching system uses an algorithm based on the answers you give to their match questions and personality test so you will always get suggestions based on that which helps to filter out any unwanted profiles.

Description

Ah, Tinder. This app doesn’t need much of an introduction because whether you’re new to the whole online dating thing or you’re a veteran at it, you’ve certainly heard about Tinder.

And this is either your go-to app or the app you sign up for when you’ve already tried everything else before.

Since it was launched in Japan at the start of 2015, Tinder has become the definitive app for meeting both traveling foreign users and English speaking Japanese users.

Tinder has a huge membership pool with over 50 million monthly users from all around the world and you will surely encounter even Japanese people.

If you happen to be in Japan, this app will make sure that you get matches with Japanese people right away and you can even start to get matches before you arrive in Japan using Tinder Plus.

The great thing about Tinder is that you just set up your account and start swiping left or right. There are no boring surveys or questions and you can even log in to Tinder using your Facebook account.

Most of the features are free and you don’t have to pay anything to get loads of matches but rather just swipe right on the profiles you like and swipe left on the profiles you’re not interested in.

To sum up, Tinder is one of the best apps you can use if you want to make friendships, have long-term relationships or just want a simple hook-up.

Pros

  • It has lots of members from Japan, but also from all other parts of the world.
  • With the Tinder Plus features, members can start making matches before they even arrive in Japan.
  • The interface is quite easy to navigate and the app overall is user-friendly.

  • You have to be in Japan to get Japanese matches, but hey, who doesn’t like traveling?

Who is it best for?

Who is it best for?

Because Tinder is mostly used by people between 18 and 25 you can expect to find a lot of young people there but there are also older users as well.

You can only send messages to someone you’ve matched with. To send messages to random people you will have to upgrade to Tinder Plus.

Things to Consider

Things to Consider
  1. When it comes to dating in real life and dating sites, both have their ups and downs but don’t think that going on a dating site is going to guarantee you finding a date. Like with dating in real life, you need to rely on your personality and dating skills to get any results.
  2. No dating website is obligated to find you a date and they are just there to help you find people to interact with, you have to do the rest.
  3. If you’re thinking about spending money on dating sites do know that the features that come along with Premium memberships still don’t guarantee you finding a date, but rather just increase your chance of getting a match.
  4. If you want to increase your chances of meeting people then don’t just use one site. You can log into a bunch of them as long as they are free and that way you are interacting with more people from different platforms.
  5. Not all dating sites are the same and you have to do a bit of research before you sign up to one. Some dating sites, such as Tinder, are more casual and members just want to have fun, while others are more serious and members there want to find someone for a long-term relationship.
  6. If you find someone who you’re interested in, don’t hesitate to make the first move and try to use a great conversation opener to start talking to them.
  7. Finally, don’t give up to easily and try to be patient because even if you don’t end up finding a perfect match, you will certainly meet lots of cool and interesting people so it will pay off either way.

Conclusion

That’s about it when it comes to the top 5 Japanese dating sites, and as you can see these sites are all different each in their way.

Go ahead and try them for yourself and see if they are your cup of tea and we are sure that at least one site from this list is going to get you plenty of matches.

So good luck on finding your perfect Japanese match!
