Takarazuka City to Issue Same-sex Partnership Certificates

June 3rd, 2016

583px-lgbt_flag_map_of_japan-svg1From RocketNews24 we get some long-awaited news! Takarazuka City has become the 4th Japanese municipal authority in Japan to issue same-sex partnership certificate. Takarazuka follows the footsteps of Shibuya and Setagaya Wards in Tokyo, and Iga in Mie Prefecture. Takarazuka is the first town in Kansai to recognize same-sex couples.

Takarazuka is the home of the famous all-female musical revue troupe of the same name and the home of “God of Manga” Tezuka Osamu. It’s make a perfect destination wedding for female couples wanting  a “fantasy costume”-themed wedding. ;-)

A fifth municipality is set to follow as Naha in Okinawa will be recognizing same-sex partnerships in July.

Still baby steps, but….one step at a time, things are changing. ^_^
