Having been to a few myself, I can say that it takes a little while to get comfortable, but once you are in they are a lot of fun. They can take a lot of forms — one party may be a highly structured "speed dating" format, or they can be a more loose "party" where you can mingle with whoever you like. There are also "gokon" events where a roughly even amount of men and women head to an izakaya Japanese-style bar or restaurant and chat in an informal setting.

Tokyo funds matchmaking parties to boost birth rate
This means being polite not only to a woman that catches your eye, but to people around her — men and women included. Though the percentage of couples who actually get married is decreasing nowadays, the government and other private sectors are helping people in holding marriage events and meeting potential partners.
This is no ordinary matchmaking event, as participants will be blindfolded while they get to know each other. This will help them find their true match through their inner selves rather than their physical appearance.
It is literally a blind date. Japan is home to one of the fastest aging societies in the world more elderly, fewer young people to support them and the birth rate in the country has been decreasing for decades.
It is also forecast to lose a third of its population in the next fifty years or so. To help aid its increase, matchmaking parties are funded to remedy the situation. This strategy will help encourage young people to settle down and have a family.
Nowadays, these kinds of events are increasingly becoming common, especially in the area of Tokyo. It can be very difficult for women who are thirty years old and older to find a partner in Japan. Some parties are organized into coffee and cake events complete with soundtracks of live piano music to make everything look and feel romantic. This is a rare opportunity for them to go out and meet different people.
