Seven in ten young Japanese woman would like a foreign husband

The company TOBE recently bought out a matchmaking service in Hawaii that mainly matches Japanese women with American men, so to celebrate (?) conducted a survey into Japanese women’s views on foreign partners via their love and relationship web site https://aikatsu.jp.

These figures are quite higher than I might have expected, but given the survey being an open survey, I’m not sure how much weight we can put on the answers.

I doubt they’ll be getting many international weddings held here:

Three surveys were conducted as open surveys available through the aforementioned https://aikatu.jp web site, which is oriented towards women in their twenties and thirties, so hopefully most of the respondents were in that age range. Q1 was conducted between the 6th of October and 20th of November 2017, Q2 between the 16th of October and the 20th of November 2017, and Q3 between the 27th of October and the 20th of November 2017.

    I’m assuming the women that said no have had bad experiences with foreign boyfriends or husbands.
