It does.

As far as black guys go, I hear mixed stories when it comes to their romantic success in Japan. There's a few half-Japanese, half-Black celebrities in Japan even, so to say they always fail with the local populace would be a gross exaggeration. It's probably a combination of looks, status and that certain "exotic-ism" many men and women from all around the globe are suckers for. I'm pretty sure a light-skinned black dude from the States would do quite well in Japan if he was respectful of the culture and treated the girls nicely. A Nigerian man might do a lot less as his nations reputation precedes him.


Been there. Black guys used to be popular somewhat, and there was a sizable hip-hop subculture in the previous decade, but all of that hype is dead. A light-skinned Black guy that can pas for another race will do alright, like in other parts of Asia, but a dark-skinned Black guy, whether he is from America or Africa, will be stuck with his hand or the expat rejects.


Time to drop 40 lbs. and hit up Japan. Now I am beginning to look like Heavy D instead of Christopher Williams lol

It's the population age structure that's the real problem. When old people greatly outnumber young people, this creates a situation that is disastrous for the economy.

The solution is immigration, but the government's desire to keep the Japanese archipelago "racially pure" prevents large-scale immigration from happening.


Immigration would be an OUTCOME, not a solution.

A SOLUTION would be to cut future pensions, fire all women from their jobs, and ban porn and birth control.

Babies would get made.

Yes, and fire old men from their jobs. But then what to do about overpopulation?

Their women are about as materialistic and career-driven as American women, from what a friend of mine living there tells me. Marriage and children often is the last thing on their mind. As for the men? Look up "Herbivore Men" and you know one of the reasons their population is dropping so dramatically.

A herbivore man is Japan's version of the Western metrosexual man. Young, slender, fashionable men. Effeminate. Weak. Extremely self-centered and not pursuing relationships, let alone get married or have children. They build nothing and upon their death, leave nothing. They are married to their games, their kitchen apron, their hipster hobbies and what-have-you.

Their women want a salary man to take care of the household finances, as typically upon marrying and having children, they stop working themselves. They have trouble finding a man to do this, and often cling on to their own independence too much as well. As a result, marriage rates plummet. Children born outside of wedlock are culturally frowned upon so in most cases, no marriage means no children.

Thus, many young 20- and 30-somethings in Japan never will marry nor will they ever reproduce. The numbers are staggeringly high. In the more rural areas the traditional family yet lives, but she is on her last legs even there.

Japan is the ultimate result of the "MGTOW" movement, in which not only the men but only the women are "going their own way". And this way ends in dying alone and childless in a home with no one there to visit you but a cat.

Well done, Japan.


What's pitoyable is those Western guys who makes their opinions on watching Japanese porn movies and are persuaded Japanese women are easy,non materialistic,approachable and so on.

On my trip to Thailand,i've seen Japanese women and they have a very self centered vibe..nothing besides what they are doing exist.
Never i've witnessed them to be flirtatious with men,they have this passive egocentric mixed maybe with shyness or an overly big ego attitudee,that i found them not worth to be pursued.

Yes, and no. When I was in Japan, I encountered a good number of flirtatious Japanese women, and saw even more. They didn't seem to be as aggressively flirtatious with their own men, but when a foreigner stepped on the scene, they were. These were probably foreigner-chasing girls that had a different personality to be fair though.

I agree that many Japanese women have a self-centered attitude, and the posts that you hear about them being so sweet, docile, perfect, etc. probably come from guys frustrated with their own women that fall off of a plane in Japan and suddenly they're able to get some good poontang on a more constant basis. I have yellow fever and find Japanese women attractive, but in no way will i say that they are all sweet and docile creatures.

Finally, many women all over the world are easy because of materialism, you could argue. They watch Hollywood movies, so they are easy for the blonde/blue foreigner. the handful that watched hip-hop became more open to Black men. The top 10% of Japanese men have alpha genetics that drive Japanese women too them. the rest just jack off to hentai. Materialism makes women easier if you have what they want.

Crowded cities will empty out when make-work jobs for women vanish. Men can do some tasks, some offices will be shabbier and service will suffer, and some stuff just won't get done. But so what? Women don't do anything essential, except the things that a wife does.

Rural areas are generally not overpopulated anywhere, including Japan. A re-ordering of the economy will decrease stupid consumption, and will increase desirability of farming and living close to the land.

Techniques for sustaining multiples of current population:
hydroponics
aquaculture/sea farming
desalinization
cheap nuclear energy via breeder reactors
fusion energy
land reclamation (dikes)
platforms in sheltered, shallow areas of the coast

Techniques for culling the old and useless:
quit paying to embalm living cadavers with pharmaceuticals
focus medicine on health and usefulness rather than life extension
quit paying for nursing homes
require wealth-sharing with sons to prevent generational hoarding
end medical insurance

That's what happens when you follow the Marxist ideologies of equality


Wrong, go back to class.

I have a feeling we're going to keep bumping heads.

Marxist to blame, that's rich.

When you're in a country where the opportunity to ascend the social ladder is tiny and only open to those who are beyond workaholic the last thing you wanna do is have sex.

No, seriously. Being overworked, stressed, distressed and brought down to your knees from daily workload does wonders in killing one's libido. I know. I've been there (not in Japan but being in a similar situation once right here)

Not to mention too how people at such places, religious restrictions aside, tend to drink shit-tons of alcohol too to drown away their misery and doing so mostly just to save face to their fellow employees during all those frequent time-stealing company gatherings. Nope, aint fun having sex when you're being drunk stupid. Feels so much better doing it while sober.

And who has even willingness to go look for a mate when that would surely mean taking your attention away from your career demands, where even the slightest slack away from would mean the instant loss of your paycheck?
