Are things really so different from the times of traditional "omiai? It is more of a blind date, and friends, family, co-workers, or employers might set-up the introduction. Many times people will introduce two friends by going out as a group.
With the Japanese economy as it is, and more women needed in the work force as the Japanese population descreases, more women focus on having a career.A Japanese woman I met in Omaha, Nebraska in 1999 was a candidate for one of these more traditional "omiai." She is an intelligent, independent pharmacist, so you can imagine my surprise when she explained the meeting.Her parents were concerned about her because she was over the usual age of marriage, 25, and didn't seem to be doing much about finding a spouse.The day of the wedding these "nakodo" are the first to speak at the wedding party and wish the couple a happy marriage.A very good friend of my family who is actually considered part of our family was introduced to a very nice lady for marriage.
