IamA Japanese man who wrote a book about inter-cultural dating in Japan, featuring 15 people from 8 countries, including LGBT people. AMA! AMA!
My name is Yuta Aoki. I came up with the idea of this book in 2013. I'd always felt there wasn't enough information about Japanese dating scene in English, and I knew some people who had very interesting experiences that didn't fit the stereotype.
Writing the book was nothing but fun. I interviewed over 30 people, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to their stories. I also add my explanation of cultural contexts to each story.
My book is called There's Something I Want to Tell You: True Stories of Mixed Dating in Japan. Here's the Amazon link: http://amzn.com/B00SDJ61FI
As for me, I was born and raised in Japan, and had a full Japanese education. I'm quite well travelled (I've been to about 30 countries.) I date internationally and I'm pretty much open to date any nationality/ethnicity. More about me here: http://www.yutaaoki.com/blog/about-me
