I'm burned out from the current job, the one in Tokyo is going to be tough too, and I may simply not have enough energy for chasing tail. From what I read on various forums, Tokyo is not the kind of place where all you need to do is to show up and be white.

I have a plan B of chasing Chinese career women, who may prefer dating other expats rather than Japanese guys. I met one and I have a feeling there are more girls like her.

I had three dates with two different Japanese women that went nowhere worth mentioning, since they were supposedly looking for LTR material and I was only in town for two weeks.

That said, when I got back home I was still getting matches on the swiping apps and played along for a little while to see what I could get conceivably get if I were back in Japan. I'd say that of 20 matches, 5 were from western countries, 7 were Japanese, and 7 were Indonesian women working in Tokyo.

Based on my short experience in country, your short assessment that being white and Tokyo isn't enough is absolutely correct in my experience. You'll get the occasional Japanese person wanting to try their English, or strangers (rarely) asking where you're from. But if there ever was a white god period of time where Japanese girls threw themselves by the dozens around any western man, it was probably decades ago.

Unless you speak the language, you'll have lots of conversations that consist of your limited or non-existence Japanese, and their limited English abilities. The two girls I went on dates with spoke English with a very heavy accent, but had a wide vocabulary and understood English well when spoken to slowly.

I could also be wrong about everything I've written here because again, I only spent two weeks in Tokyo. I fucking loved that place though and I hope you make the best of your time there. Can't wait to return.
