  • What is considered attractive in Japan?

    Every culture has their own unique views on what is considered attractive, handsome or beautiful. What I want to know is what do women in Japan consider handsome or attractive? And how do their views differ from what is considered handsome here in the U.S.?

    To generalize, Japanese women like tall, slim, androgynous men, while Western women prefer
    tall, broad-shouldered, masculine men. As for Japanese men, a study claimed that they prefer
    "sure bets". As in, women they can definitely land, hence their preference in small, weak, compliant
    women as opposed to beautiful or smart. Western men are the opposite and prefer women who are
    challenging intellectually, physically, etc.

    In general, fair skin is favored among Japanese women. However, most women who boast about
    having white skin and claim superiority over darker, olive-toned women are unattractive.
    In the summer, slim, young, and other women, who are confident in their bodies, frequent the beach and
    become bronzed. The elderly, overweight, and other ladies, who are too self-consious to expose their
    bodies, stay out of the sun and remain pale. And it is THESE women who make rude comments that can
    be construed as racist like, "Pale skinned women are more beautiful" or "Foreign men like Japanese
    women because of our PALE skin".

    Japan is a small island nation so the people are underexposed and ignorant. So, they'll often think a white
    man looks like Brad Pitt and a black woman looks like Beyonce. If a Japanese person fawns over your
    foreign good looks, don't let it get to your head UNLESS you're considered attractive in your home country.

        If you mean "what do JAPANESE women consider handsome or attractive" then you should ask Japanese women.

              Another thread about generalizations and stereotyping?
              How about asking yourself does what appeal to the masses is your "selling" virtue, and must it be?
              If you reply by the affirmative, wait for DJ&docomomo input.

                Does it seem strange to you, seeing that this forum has some bitter gaijin women who have a "caramel mouth" (Lets talkie talkie anybody?) who try to justify their shock of being inferior by badmouthing japanese women and stupid gaijin men who -even when they are having-or not having-sex with j-girls call them sluts, easy rides, whores etc instead of falling to their knees and thanking heaven that they have the chance of tasting a bit of heaven?

                    seriously money is the biggest one for girls under 40 for most women

                    the better looking the woman is the more she cares about money more than anything else.

                    take a walk through a love hotel district on a weekend and watch all the prostitutes splitting up with their clients at hotel entrances. those are just normal hot girls who are obsessed with money and brands. tens of thousands of them in tokyo alone. before you go and say i'm being ridiculous, young prostitutes in tokyo are not drugged up crack whores or something. it's even likely that the young girlfriends of some people reading this thread are, or have been prostitutes in some form or another at some time..! the more money you have (or appear to have) and the more fashionable the girl..the more likely it is she's into it..!

                    anyway, good looks depend on the girls you're going after but there are several different main categories:

                    oniisan kei: this fashion look appeals to university students and women who like younger men. it's basically under 25 only. if you're over 25 and wear this it might look weird depending on your body type or face. as far as physical looks go, girls who like oniisan kei fashion typically like young looking faces, no facial hair. in a foreigner they usually won't be too picky about hair or eye color. fat is definitely not good.

                    rock: this fashion look attracts j-rockers. there are several sub-types of rock fashion including punk, visual kei and j-rock. rock girls like guys who look like whatever the latest famous rock artist looks like right now. punk is very under-represented in japan. looks: tall, skinny, long hair. in a foreigner black or blonde long hair is best. blue or green eyes. need to be skinny, j-rock girls are usually the thinnest girls you'll find in japan and they like their guys to be skinny too.

                    host: pretty obvious. just take a look at any host next time you're in the big city. in a gaijin: blonde hair, blue eyes, occasionally brown hair with green eyes is ok too but blonde is the best. doesn't need to be natural. big spiky host hair is a necessity. should be thin, don't necessarily need to be tall. fashion needs to match that of a host's. this will attract flashy/炢 girls, so if you like kyabakura girls or girls who show a lot of tanima or ___ cheek just with their regular outfits this is the way you want to go. i recommend looking at Osaka hosts for the best fashion influence as I've been told by several women that Osaka hosts look better than Tokyo hosts on average, and it's not just their looks.

                    Finally...

                    Regular: Regular girls like regular uniqlo-ish looking guys. In decent shape, not fat. Glasses are OK but should be stylish. Baggy typical gaijin clothing is absolutely not good. As far as body type is concerned nothing really matters. Girls who like regular guys can be anything from homely/plain to stunningly gorgeous. Furthermore, girls who like regular guys may be super gorgeous but hate fashion styles you'd think they'd love - a lot of kyabakura girls hate host type guys but will go for regular looking guys. Weird but true.

                      You are forgetting that OP is from those gaijin males who are coming to Japan. Most of them are not capable to deal with any female challenge, either intellectual or physical. That explains their preferences: easy dumb pussies. Japan is a heaven for this, according to GP posters. OP'll be fine.

                        Japanese women prefer Japanese men.
                        Why would they want a relationship with a man that they can't have a real conversation with and might not be around next year?
                        About 95% of the women you will see with foreigners are not the kind of women any self-respecting man would want for a relationship (no comments from you guys that "had a really good f*ck last week"- I am talking about a relationship, not a bed buddy or a one night stand [if you think they are the same thing, you already missed the point]).
                        If you are happy with dirty sluts in you home country, then come to Japan, because that is all you can get here. The good women are not interested in you for more than an "free English lesson friend".

                            Met my j-girlfriend in Australia, I taught her english over the years. Definitely not a 'slut' lol :P nice down to earth, quite good looking, some what traditional kind of j-girl. I'm very happy. I do agree with your point on If your going to Japan its definitely not easy to find a proper girlfriend. Sure its easy to find a one night stand but a proper partner definitely not easy.
