Japanese marriage traditions disclose the core of attitude towards dating and romance among Japanese women in general. There is a concept of “miai” single japanese women  in Japanese culture. It is a traditional Japanese custom similar to western matchmaking traditions when a woman and a man meet each other through third parties considering marriage’s further possibility. It is interesting to note that many researchers, including Japanese ones, believe that the “miai” tradition has held firm in Japanese society. After World War II, the younger generations of Japanese gradually adopted the western style — the marriage by love.
