“Marriage For All Japan” aims to realize a society in which everyone has the freedom to choose whether to marry or remain unmarried, regardless of their legal sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Our organization was established by lawyers, PR professionals, and others to advocate for same-sex marriage (marriage equality).

When two individuals decide that they want to live their lives together, they should be able to freely choose to marry if they wish or remain unmarried without being forced to do so. This is the “freedom of marriage.” Our name, “Marriage For All Japan – Freedom of Marriage for All” represents our belief that such a choice should be equally granted to couples whether they are of the same or opposite sex.


We aim to achieve same-sex marriage (marriage equality) by holding events and seminars, appearing in media, conducting research, and lobbying as well as through our support of the “Freedom Of Marriage For All” lawsuits.
