KONKATSU means marriage hunting activities.
According to government estimates, Japanese population will decrease to around 87 million by 2060.
The one of biggest factors is its lower marriage rates.
It’s 33% decrease in people getting married since 1973.
While 40% of young people think a marriage is not worthy anymore, the rest are still looking for partners but cannot have opportunities.
So these years the government and cities have stimulated those people by creating chances to meet and find a partner.
I want to share some of the unique KONKATSU party.
1. RAMEN KONKATSU!
Since the Ramen Konkatsu started in 2010, the event has spread 19 places in Japan and over 130 couples found love.
It is said that when you see what type of noodle a person likes and how the person eats noodles, then you can feel matching.
2. ONIGOKKO KONAKTSU!!
Onigokko is a Japanese tag game.
You can enjoy sports together and find how a person act through the game.
This is held once a month in Tokyo.
After the game, there is a drink party.
3. DOGU KONKATSU!!!
Dogu means earthen figurines.
In Shinjuku Tokyo, young people seek and find love making earthen cray figurines….
You can see person’s art sense and concentration.
