The following is a guest post from a fellow black man living in Japan who goes by the name of Miles Star. I thought, since it’s in Japanese as well, I’d get my Japanese friends to take a peek and share their thoughts on it.
I also thought to ask him about my sharing it with you guys, and he agreed.
I do not think there is no particular body type though.
Japanese and Filipino women are most open to dating black men than the other groups from my experience...
So without further ado, here is Miles Star’s letter to Japanese people on behalf of black men.
Many asian women do like celebrity black men a lot.
The only races I'm not attracted to are Latin and Asian. I didn't know whether or not I could be attracted to black men (not Africans) until, one day, I was.
However, very hard to find my type where black men are concerned.
It is commonly believed that dating in Japan is easy for non-Asian (particularly white) men and hard for women.
I came across a blog post by zoomingjapn, a German girl living in Japan, writing about dating in Japan as a foreigner. She writes, ‘It is comparably easy for a western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan’, but ‘it is extremely tough to find a date as a foreign woman here in Japan.’ Her story is interesting in itself but the most interesting part of the article is the huge number of comments gets – 162 comments (or about 30,000 words! A lot of people who commented actually disagree with her.
