Not just exchange students! Many Asians study in Australia; they (understandably) encounter difficulty in obtaining leases, which makes homestay and sharehouses an attractive option.

I spent a year teaching English in Tokyo some years ago. Most of the people I taught were well educated, middle-class and quite affluent, so my experiences out there were pretty good. As a general rule, they were quite tolerant of Americans and other English speakers, but tended to look down on most other foreigners (especially Filipinos, Chinese and Koreans).

My older students were extremely polite but a little reserved, while the younger ones were warm, friendly and fun loving. We often went out drinking together after class, some of them introduced me to popular dishes such as okonomiyaki and yakitori (I wasn't too fond of sashimi; eating raw fish in summer is always a little risky). Food was pretty expensive like everything else out there, but you can find some great "hole-in-the-wall" restaurants if you know where to look.

Finding a girlfriend in Tokyo is dead easy if you're a native English speaker, because the women want to escape the eternal drudgery Japanese life. Foreign teachers generally make twice as much money as the average office worker, so the girls think that all Americans are rich. If you put an add in Tokyo Classified saying you want to marry a Japanese girl, you'll be inundated with emails. Not kidding; at one point, I dated five different girls in one week. All of and ditched me when I admitted I didn't really want to get married, but that wasn't really a problem, because there were plenty of others to choose from.

One piece of advice: if you want to impress a Japanese woman, you have to be prepared to spend a lot of cash. Dinner and shopping in the Ginza will cost you around $200 US; more if the girl suggests going to a love hotel (usually happens on the third date, but first night action is always a possibility in Tokyo).

As you can see this is not something new. This is part of human nature.

Appeal to tradition and appeal to nature are both fallacies.

Gentlemen decide their actions based upon critical thought (aided by philosophy) and conscience (aided by religion), ignoring the base demands of the corporeal.

Back in the 90s, a teacher needed to speak native English and have a degree in any discipline. The working visa requirements might have changed since then, but you can look all that up pretty easily online.

I applied for the job via a company which specialized in finding teachers for the NOVA corporation. The application cost me $300, but there are alternatives to going through a placement company. Some private schools advertise in American & European newspapers and will hire new staff based on a telephone interview.

Very few schools will pay for your air travel or accommodation, so you'll need a few thousand dollars (or an extremely good credit card) to get through your first two months. After that, your bank account will start piling up, because the salaries start around 300,000 yen a month (depending on which part of Japan you're in).

Here's a site you might like to check out if you're really interested in teaching overseas:

It's not quite that bad, grey. All Japanese women want to get married, and they all want to have kids. Naturally, they want the best for their children, and they know that they'll have better lives in the West than they would in the East. That includes a good-natured husband with a good salary.

Japanese men often treat their wives like dirt; for that reason, many J-girls are keen to marry Americans. The only thing they really expect from you is a little kindness and generosity, and a good home for your children. That last part is VERY important to them, why is why you need a good salary to impress them with.

In return, they will treat you like a king and do anything you ask them to do in bed. You'll never have to cook, clean or look after yourself again; they'll do it all for you and never complain about it. That's how they were raised, and that's how they live. Basically, they'll give you everything you want in return for a good home and a good father for their children.

If I wanted to get married, that would sound like a pretty good bargain to me.

Romanticism were an artistic and literary movement, they had many stories about love and all but marriage was still a contract. We still have many stories about love and all but human relations aren't that different.

Not exactly. The elderly population is living longer these days, but the birth rate hasn't changed much over the past 30 years or so. This is partly because there are more women than men, and the ones who get married are having smaller families compared to the previous generations.

Japanese women still want to get married and still want to have children - in their culture it's a mark of shame for a woman to be single at the age of 30. When I was working out there, I met woman who raised the question of marriage during our first date. They were often in their mid 20s, and their "biological clock" was ticking.

They often wanted to know if I was serious about getting married in the near-future and if I wanted to have kids. That was uppermost on their minds. When I asked them why they were looking for a "gaijin" partner, they usually told me that Western guys treated women better than Japanese men. True story, bro.

The traditional husband wife relationship is something like Beldandy from Oh My Godness. This have changed with time but I think that on average "gaijin" would still give more equality in the relationship.
