Find a Japanese girl who speaks English

It's obviously a minority in Japan, but you can find some Japanese girls who can speak English. In that case, there is no language barrier although there is still the culture gap.

Please note that there are many "Gaijin-Hunters".
In many cases, "Gaijin-Hunters" are good at English.

They like foreign guys because they are foreigners.
They are not interested in "The person who you are".
You know what I mean, right?
For "Gaijin-Hunters" foreign guys are their jewelry, fancy handbags, dress shoes, or some fashion items.
If the Japanese girl seems too proactive to foreign guys or seems to be getting used to foreign guys too much, possibly she is.

However, there are some decent Japanese girls who speak English yet not "Gaijin-Hunter".
Finding them isn't easy.
It's like 'seeking gold from the mud in the river',
but she is literally gold for you.

If you cannot speak both Japanese and English, … I'm sorry,
you have to be in a harder dating situation in Japan.


Use your smartphone translation and body language

It sounds ridiculous!

Yeah, I personally think so too.

But, actually, there are some Japanese girls who say it may do work.

Of course, it might be impossible to have a serious relationship with such a poor communication way, however, if they learn their language a lot and improve their communication later,
it might be acceptable as the first page.


Speak English very slowly and use easy words

At least for around 6 years from junior-high-school to high-school, Japanese people took English classes.
Nevertheless, English education in Japanese schools is terrible, so, most Japanese cannot speak English. Also, most Japanese students merely took classes but they didn't learn it seriously, because most Japanese can live enough happy life without English as long as they live in Japan. At least in the old days, Japanese people didn't need English.

Anyway, even though they cannot speak English well, they have knowledge of English a little bit.
How much? It depends on the person. For example, regardless of experience, someone is good at painting but someone is not, right?
So, if you speak English very slowly and use very easy words, you may be able to converse with Japanese women more than expected.
Please don't forget your position "I'm sorry that I cannot speak Japanese", it would help to open her heart.


Learn the Japanese language as much as you can (+ how to)

Japanese women know most foreign guys cannot speak Japanese.
That's why, even if it's very beginner-level, speaking Japanese means a lot! You should dare to do it!
She would be impressed by you, I guarantee.
Also, it expands your chances of date with Japanese women.

The important point is if you have serious enthusiasm to learn or speak Japanese.Don't worry too much.
Show your enthusiasm and effort!

Actually, "language exchange" is one of the best ways to meet Japanese women. Of course, you definitely shouldn't use "language exchange" on the other purpose.
If you are not an avid learner but an avid hunter, they just hate you.
If you are serious about learning Japanese, at least, it leads you to the natural opportunity to make Japanese friends, and it may connect to someone special.

I have some foreign friends who are fluent in Japanese. And I asked them:
"What did you use for learning basic Japanese when you were a very beginner? What is your recommendation for a very beginner?"
