March 6 – BLiTZ. Japan is a country of contrasts, in which there are many intricacies that are not clear to a European. But nevertheless, in some modern trends blowing from Europe and America, the Japanese are trying to keep up.
A bill to approve same-sex marriage in Japan is becoming a weapon of opposition, which hopes to put pressure on the government ahead of the G7 summit. Although the ruling coalition has a majority in parliament, the bill is a symbolic measure.
Despite the absence of a ban on same-sex marriage in the Japanese constitution, Japan remains the last G7 country not to recognize them. Most Japanese are in favor of the recognition of same-sex marriages.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s criticism of his aide for making negative comments about same-sex couples has provided additional incentive for the opposition to impose its views on the government.
