Tokyo recently adopted an anti-discrimination law concerning sexual orientation and gender identity. Moreover, authorities in the Japanese capital decided to conduct public education on the rights of the LGBT community. Locals express a hope that the law will be passed nationwide notwithstanding the fact that discrimination is rare in Japan and even rarer in its capital.

At present, same-sex couples aren’t allowed to adopt and in vitro fertilization isn’t accessible to lesbian women. In 2017, Osaka recognized same-sex couples as foster parents. There is still room for improvement as far as that goes, but yes, Tokyo is definitely very progressive and a very LGBT friendly destination as such.

Many Japanese men and foreigners are interested in meeting and dating trans singles in Tokyo. Sites like My Ladyboy Date and My Transsexual Date are a good way to find Japanese ladyboys. My Ladyboy Date is the biggest transgender dating site in the world. The Japanese capital has a large population of trans singles, so you won’t find it hard to meet some. If you have a choice between bar hopping in the hope of meeting a ladyboy and going online, locals would definitely recommend the latter. It is much more efficient when it comes to meeting and getting to know trans people.

While there are quite a few bars that ladyboys frequent, finding a beautiful trans single won’t be that easy. Perhaps the best approach would involve a combination of searches of physical locations and online searches. You could go the hostess or escort route, but that’s not dating in the prevalent sense of the word.

Online dating sites are the best place to meet trans singles for casual dating, a serious relationship, or just a fling depending on what you and the other person are looking for. This is because people will usually make who they are and what they want clear on their profiles. Hostess bars are trendy in the Japanese capital, but your contacts with a ladyboy there might be limited to a conversation. There is no guarantee for anything more. Some of them might want to hook up with you, but that will not be free. That’s why we recommend steering clear of hostess bars.

On a more positive note, we encourage visitors of the Japanese capital to drop by the ladyboy cabaret show at Kingyo Roppongi, where live shows are held every day. Kingyo Roppongi is popular with famous fashion designers and film directors. The stage set, called Neo Kabuki, is spectacular with its ever-morphing art forms.
