In this article, taking in consideration my experience and observations, I will name some of the qualities that you should possess to win the heart of a Japanese man.

    1. Take care of your skin

    Having beautiful skin is considered to be epitome of beauty in Japan as it signifies youth and purity. No wonder that beauty products for skin can be found everywhere in Japan.

    Also, you may notice a lot of Japanese ladies using UV cut shirts, lots of UV protection and umbrellas during summer. UV can indeed be very bad for the skin and in Japan, bright skin has been very popular between both males and females so I would recommend to pay extra attention to it and never forget using the sun screen.

    If you want to be popular among Japanese men, take care of your skin!

    2. Petite and slim

    Most Japanese men would normally prefer a lady with a smaller frame.. They are very particular about weight and as you may know, the Japanese standards for weight are quite exaggerate as with a height of 1,59 cm, for example and a weight of 50 kg is still considered fat in Japan.

    But if you think you don’t possess this quality, well there are a lot of tips out there that you can follow! As the saying goes “You don’t have to eat less, you have to eat right”. Maintain a healthy diet and you are good to go!

    3. Make a move

    Japanese guys are by nature shy. They usually don’t say what’s on their mind, especially if you just met not so long ago. The tip here is if you meet someone that you like, try maintain an eye contact and try to ask some questions, also be a good listener. Prepare a good topic for a chitchat and before you part with him get his contact details.

    That way, before you know it you are already preparing your new dress and a pair of shoes for your first date with him!

    4. Respect and understand the culture

    If you are non-Japanese you should always bear in mind this important part, because the culture can be totally different from any other country. Who knows, you might have done something that would hurt his feelings without even knowing about it!

    Remember to respect his culture and if there is any misunderstanding, properly talk to him about your feelings as in a relationship where two cultures and different perspectives are involved, I believe that communication holds the key to a good relationship.

    5. Be feminine

    Japanese guys are attracted to the girls who act like ladies. Actually almost all of the boys around the world are like that. If you just met your Japanese guy, impress him with some smooth ladylike gestures!

    It’s never wrong to put extra effort for someone you like, but make sure that your intentions are true and pure, and your heart really belongs to him. However in the long run these tips will not be effective if you don’t do it from your heart. Do it if your heart desires it, don’t pretend to be somebody else. Who knows, you might be hearing “Let’s go out” from your crush very soon!
