Japan Cupid Review

Since 2005, Japan Cupid has been bringing thousands of singles together that have been searching for a special someone. This online dating site was designed to bring Japanese singles and those attracted to them together. Singles from all around the world have found pen pals, new friends, casual dates and long-term relationships through Japan Cupid. Their homepage uses a blue and orange color theme along with a large photo of a smiling Japanese woman. There are also helpful videos and graphics about the site and its features. If you are a Japanese single or interested in meeting one, you might find what you are searching for on Japan Cupid.


How it works

Your first task on Japan Cupid is to create a profile so others can get to know more about you. You will be asked a series of multiple-choice questions about your physical traits, personal habits, marital status, education, profession, willingness to relocate, horoscope sign and fluency in Japanese. You will then have the opportunity to create a profile headline and to write a personal description about yourself and your ideal match. There is also a My Match section, which consists of criteria for your perfect match, such as ethnicity, body type, age range, religion and personal habits. Although this section is optional, completing it can help Japan Cupid find you better matches. Lastly, you can upload up to five photos or create a video for your profile to give it a more personal touch.

After you have completed your profile, it’s time to search for your perfect match. You can do a basic search by selecting criteria like gender, age range, country, state and last date active. You can also do an advanced search and choose from a long list of criteria such as hair color, weight, eyewear, ethnicity, body art, best feature and annual income. Other searches available are Latest Photos, New Members, Keywords, In My Area and Most Popular.

Once you find a member that you would like to know on a more personal level, you can send a virtual flirt and add them to your Favorites list. Unfortunately, you are restricted from initiating contact through instant messenger or email unless that person has upgraded their subscription.

Another way you could meet someone new is through the Japanese Desire photo gallery. With an upgraded subscription, you can access an exclusive gallery of the most attractive members on Japan Cupid. A great feature that can help you get to know someone better is Anonymous Phone Call. This feature allows you to chat with another member without giving out your phone number. The What’s New feature keeps track of any new messages, virtual flirts, profile views and members that have added you to their Favorites list.


A Gold Membership will allow you to communicate with non-paying members, view profiles in stealth mode and hide annoying ads. There are three Gold membership plans available: the twelve month plan is $10.00 per month, the three month plan is $20.00 per month and the one month plan is $29.98 per month.

A Platinum membership will give you those benefits plus unlock access search features, increase your profile space, highlight your profile, enable you to add notes to profiles and translate messages for you. There are three Platinum membership plans available: the twelve month plan is $12.50 per month, the three month plan is $23.33 per month and the one month plan is $34.99.

The Good…

There is an extensive help section that can answer any question you might have.

You can have real-time chats using videos, instant messenger and phone calls.

The Bad…

With a free membership, you are unable to communicate with other free members.

And The Ugly

If you are inactive on Japan Cupid for just a few minutes, the session expires and times out.
