Special guest Toshi joins the podcast to discuss some of the reasons for why Japanese people are struggling to find a life partner, such as social attitudes and economic pressures.  Topics that are covered include "parasite singles" (those who stay at home and live off of their parents' income until getting married), gokon (drinking parties where groups of people can meet each other), omiai (parents introducing their children to each other for the purpose of marriage), aisekiya (restaurants where you can share a table with strangers for some conversation), and much much more!
