The Legal Marriage Process in Japan
The steps to become legally married in Japan vary for each Nationality. We have resources available, please reference below for the listed Nationalities available in printable format and youtube videos that explain the process.
Although the information is relevant and accurate we still need to inquire at the city office should you decide to get married.
We need to confirm that the requirements are still relevant and that the city office does not have any special additional requirements for that geographic area.
