JapanCupid.com is the place for singles to find their perfect match. Whether you’re looking for a pen pal, romance or marriage, this dating site provides the opportunity to meet Japanese singles. The site is designed for singles from both Japanese and Western backgrounds to find a partner. The site is available in many languages, and platinum members have the option to use a language translation service. The free membership offers many useful features to search singles and communicate. Upgrading from a free membership to a paid membership, however, adds on many perks, including instant and video messaging, ability to use chat rooms, and higher ranking in search results.

Another great feature of JapanCupid.com is the personality and interest sections, which allow singles to describe and select their interests—making the process of finding your perfect match that much easier. This matching system provides a variety of personality and interest options, from cultural and ethnic background to willingness to relocate. JapanCupid.com allows members to view who’s currently online, new members, who has shown interest, and who has marked your profile as a favorite—making it simple to find other potential matches.

JapanCupid.com is free to try—and it takes only a few minutes to fill out the basic profile. Give this online dating community a try!
