Fake priest weddings

Onward with my wedding-related posts. This time it’s about western people who live in Japan, and are getting hired as fake priests for western style weddings! Apparently it’s quite a money-spinner. The traditional Japanese wedding is not as popular anymore, and the chapels for these weddings can be found anywhere i.e. in the middle of shops in a shopping plaza! The couples know that this is for show, and they do register properly so their marriage is recognised.

It’s crazy what Asians do to have a Western style wedding, see another blog entry I posted a while back.
