Minato-ku Joshi vs. Akihabara Joshi: Which Do You Prefer?

“Minato-ku Joshi” vs. “Akihabara Joshi”

Which types of Japanese women would you like to meet, Minato-ku Joshi or Akihabara Joshi?

Many men may have a desire to walk around with a flashy and sparkling woman. However, if the purpose of searching for a Japanese woman is marriage, we matchmakers recommend a woman who is not flashy but natural and comfortable to be with.

Today, we will compare and contrast two types of Japanese women, focusing on Minato-ku (港区)women and Akihabara (秋葉原)women. We hope this will help you in your choice of a woman.


“Minato-ku Joshi” vs. “Akihabara Joshi”: What is ”Joshi”?

The terms “Minato-ku joshi” and “Akihabara joshi” refer to two distinct types of women in Japan. “Joshi” (女子) simply means “women.”


Let’s compare the differences between Minato-ku joshi and Akihabara-Joshi.


What is Minato-ku Joshi?

Minato-ku women are akin to the women you might find in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, particularly around Rodeo Drive, indulging in luxury shopping for designer brands and enjoying fine wines at upscale restaurants. These individuals are emblematic of a lifestyle that prioritizes elegance, high fashion, and the social prestige associated with living in and frequenting high-end locales.

On the other hand…..


What is Akihabara-Joshi?

Conversely, Akihabara women could be compared to those who find happiness in the more down-to-earth, culturally rich neighborhoods like Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, or perhaps parts of Torrance, where there is a strong Japanese community. Here, the simple pleasure of a meal, such as an onigiri bento from a local Japanese market paired with a bottle of “Ito En” tea, represents contentment. These individuals appreciate the nuances of their cultural heritage and find joy in the simpler, more authentic aspects of life, rather than in the overt luxury or status symbols preferred by their Minato-ku counterparts.

Which one would you choose? And more importantly, which choice might lead to happiness?


TJM’s Matchmakers’ Voice:

We wholeheartedly recommend Akihabara Joshi as your ideal future wife.


They are like….

  • She wants to play computer games with you.
  • She loves reading “One Piece” and “Dragon Ball”.
  • She wants to enjoy cosplay with you.
  • She would love to participate in “OTAKON” events with you.
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re an introvert or an extrovert, she’s happy with either.
  • She enjoys both outdoor and indoor activities.
  • She wants to eat delicious Takoyaki and Ramen with you.
  • She wants to sing anime songs with you at KARAOKE.
  • She won’t complain if you buy expensive figures.


Akihabara-Joshi are like a breath of fresh air. They are not demanding or high-maintenance, and they are content with the simple things in life. They find joy in spending time with you, whether it’s sharing a meal, watching a movie, or simply going for a walk. They are easy to please and make life enjoyable for both themselves and those around them.


When choosing a Japanese woman as your future partner, consider selecting a woman who is a calm and peaceful woman similar to an Akihabara-Joshi, rather than one who is flashy. Such a woman may be the key to cultivating happiness together.
