Equal Wedding Japan provides memorable and exquisite wedding ceremonies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender couples. We honor all forms of love, regardless of gender and sexuality. We believe strongly in equality, and are proud to support our LGBT community from around the world. Although same-sex marriage isn’t yet recognized in Japan, Equal Wedding offers same-sex wedding ceremonies to celebrate everyone's right to love. We hope that more and more venues in Japan will celebrate same-sex weddings, and that the visibility will contribute to legalizing same-sex marriages in Japan one day too. In the end, love wins!
In Japan, the character 仁 (pronounced jin) has a profound cultural significance.
仁 means “a feeling of deep affection or care for another.”
The left half of the character 仁 is composed of ｲ (a compound form of 人), and means “human” or “person.”
The right half of 二 is the number two. When ｲ is placed before 二, the character becomes 仁 and represents the affection and care that two people feel for each other.
In certain circumstances, the character 仁 can also be pronounced hito, which is a homonym for 一 or the number one. This is taken to mean that two people bound by a strong feeling of affection become one.
