Asian wives are increasingly popular. Of all the Asian ladies, it is perhaps Japanese ladies who are the most sought after by Western men. So here's five places where you can look for a wife from Japan.
If you're interested in finding a wife in Japan then Japan Cupid is a key website to know about. Cupid Media run a large network of very popular dating sites, and Japan Cupid is their Japanese dating site.
You'll find a good number of profiles on this site. It can be hard to find ladies who are interested in you though. In this respect this site is a disappointment compared to the more Asian mail order brides focussed sites like Chinese Love Links and Filipino Cupid.
If you want to find love on Japan Cupid then you'll have to put in a lot more effort compared to the Chinese, Thai or Filipina dating sites. That means it's absolutely essential to buy a Gold or Platinum membership. You need to upload good quality photos, and really spend a lot of time writing your profile. If you can write it in Japanese then so much the better. Japanese ladies can also be quite shy, and you'll have to really spend a lot of time contacting them and generally hassling them until they get the idea that you actually do like them.
MeetJapanLady is a service for Western men seeking Japanese women for marriage. The service is run from the USA, with an office in Tokyo. This is a very high quality introduction service, with a very good rate of successful marriages. It could well be the very best way for men to meet Japanese women.
MeetJapanLady is a traditional introduction agency rather than a dating site. Members are screened before they are accepted for membership. This is good in that the quality of Japanese ladies you can meet through the service is exceptional. On the downside, there aren't as many ladies as there are on a dating site like Japan Cupid.
To get the most out of this agency it's probably better if you're already living and working in Japan. That way you'll find it much easier to meet the ladies registered with the agency.
Since the ladies using the service tend to be from the higher reaches of Japanese society, you'll also need to have a pretty good job and be able to afford to travel to Japan to meet the ladies in person.
Transpacific Marriage Agency
The Transpacific Marriage Agency is another marriage agency that helps Western men find Japanese wives. This service runs like a traditional mail order brides business that used to help men find Asian wives in the 1970's and 80's. The system is largely paper based and I found it terribly old fashioned. I couldn't even specify which Prefecture to find ladies from - in Japan I'm a man of fairly modest means thanks to the poor exchange rate against the Yen, so it's too expensive for me to travel all over Japan in search of love. There are some nice ladies registered with the agency, but I didn't think it was worth the much higher fee than Japan Cupid charges.

Japanese Friend Finder
There are a couple of Japanese Friend Finder websites. These are more chat focussed than being dating sites as such. However, you can assume that women wanting to chat to Western men are usually interested in some kind of relationship rather than just a language study buddy. If you're more marriage minded, then aim for the girls who are 24 and older, as the younger girls usually just want to chat rather than find a husband.
