To Understand Japanese Women

In addition to the resources we provide, if you are passionate and sincere about expressing your love in Japanese then Dave Radke’s e-book “Understanding Japanese Women” should become your most trusted teacher and companion.  This surprisingly simple yet genuinely authentic book will not only provide you with an in-depth knowledge about the socio-cultural background of Japanese women but will give you deep insights on how to avoid and successfully resolve various problems that western men usually encounter when expressing their love in Japanese while they are dating or married to a Japanese woman.

Who is Dave Radke?

Written by an American man who has been happily married to a Japanese woman for more than a decade, Author Dave Radke’s “Understanding Japanese Women” is not a run off the mill dating manual but a serious relationship guide on dissolving cultural barriers and expressing your love in Japanese to a woman who is completely different from the Western counterparts.

Radke has been settled in Japan for fourteen years now and is a highly accomplished translator, international consultant and relationship counselor in the country. This book on expressing your love in Japanese was born when the author began a web site to help other foreigners like him who were trying to understand Japanese women but were constantly running up against brick walls when it came to working on a relationship that would not end with heart break! His years of experience in dating and eventually marrying the woman of his dreams proved highly valuable in helping Westerners resolve inter-racial barriers and express their love in Japanese successfully and even saved a lot of couples avoid impending divorces!

The wide reach and overwhelming response to Radke’s website thus led him to compile the e-book titled “Understanding Japanese Women” which could serve as the guide for any Westerner who was keen on expressing his love in Japanese and experiencing a joyful relationship with a beautiful Japanese woman.

What will you get from this book?

In this book you will learn how to interact with Japanese women in general, which includes dating dos and don’ts. You will also understand whether learning their language is important in order to express your love in Japanese, and how exactly Japanese women view relationships and more importantly their role in relationships. You will also know about what is expected from you and what is not expected from you when you are in a relationship with a Japanese woman. In Radke’s words “My goal for the e-book was to take everything I have learned so far and teach it to others so that they can avoid the mistakes I’ve made in the past.”

Like thousands of readers who have picked up this book, even you too will wish that you had come across “Understanding Japanese Women” a long time back!
