IBJ Group, Japan’s largest network of matchmaking agencies, recently announced that they broke a new record. 10,402 couples who met through their agencies were married in 2021. And this amounts to 2% of the total number of marriages in Japan in 2021.

Thanks to its network of more than 3,000 agencies nation-wide and the trend of people preferring to use matchmaking agencies in order to find a spouse, the IBJ group was able to achieve the feat of marrying 20,804 people.

This is also in line with one of IBJ’s aim, which is to help solve the declining birthrate in Japan.

The company also stated that they have set a goal of being responsible for 5% of all marriages in Japan by 2027 and seeks to help create as many relationships as possible.
