Is same sex marriage legal in Japan?

Asked by: 317 views

My partner and I are moving to Japan next month and we would like to get married. He’s Japanese and we already got married in the US, but would also like to do it in his home country. Can anyone tell me if it’s possible, like, anywhere in Japan?

  1. Japanese people are not against gay people. Generally, we do not have problem with LGBT people, simply prefer not to pay attention. But same sex marriage is not legal anywhere here in Japan.

  3. No, it isn’t legal, but you can get a kind of certificate in Shibuya which is a replacement for the legal marriage certificate. You don’t really get married, but it’s a step forward for LGBT community in Japan.
