Lesbian Couple to Wed 26 Times Abroad to Seek Change in Japan


Two female university students plan to wed 26 times overseas to raise awareness of the fact that they cannot do the same thing in their home country. Misato Kawasaki, 21, and Mayu Otaki, 22, juniors at the Department of International Cultural Studies of Utsunomiya University’s Faculty of International Studies, will hold wedding ceremonies in 26 countries and regions where same-sex marriages are legal. The couple will start their six-month journey in March.
