Japanese Gaijin Hunter: Exploring the Love for Foreigners

Gaijin Hunter [外人はハンター] is a term used to label Japanese people who are obsessed with foreigners. An inverted version of the terms weeaboo where Japanese like absolutely everything about foreign culture and foreigners.

It doesn't matter if you're ugly or beautiful, boring or cool, Japanese Gaijin Hunters will chase you and love you. She'll want to walk with you, take pictures, show you off like a trophy, and more.

These hunters can be men or women, they can be interested in a relationship or just friendships. There are several types of Gaijin Hunter, but they all aim to get close to foreigners, something that can be cool, but can become boring.

What is a Gaijin Hunter?

What exactly makes a person a Gaijin Hunter? Don't mistake ordinary people for these born hunters. A Gaijin Hunter is obsessed and thinks only of foreigners, most often ignoring their own culture.

Gaijin Hunter also has goals. Some just want to train their English, these are called "English Vampire". These vampires approach people on the street in order to speak and train their English. They are passionate about the language and are fully dedicated to it.

These alien hunters also seek them out in order to have sex and then discard them. Others just want to enjoy the gifts and food, or show it off with their friends.

Some have more ambitious dreams like marrying a foreigner and leaving Japan because they don't like their own country at all. Others want to have foreign children. It doesn't matter if it's male or female, these hunters have ambitions.

It is normal to have interests when dealing with foreigners. The difference between a hunter and an ordinary person is in the attitude and way of acting. You will know the difference when you meet one. Most of the time it is very explicit in the person.

A Gaijin Hunter will do crazy things to capture you. To this day I remember two Japanese women on the train smiling at me and spreading their legs showing their panties. Maybe it's just perverted girls, but I don't fall for those traps. Instead of hunters, they could just be scammers who call the police to cause riots.

How to avoid Gaijin Hunter in Japan?

First of all, if you are in Tokyo, stay away from Roppongi. This place is packed with Gaijin Hunters, especially in the nightclubs. Some places in Shinjuku should be avoided as well.

Gaijin Hunters often frequent places that are frequented by Westerners. Avoid restaurants, bars and places that offer discounts for foreigners or are specially made for english speakers and foreigners.

Avoid speaking English or another language, use only Japanese in Japan, or keep silent. If you're speaking another foreign language, you'll end up encountering a Gaijin Hunter that is always waiting to attack its prey.

If you're using English then you won't have much of a social life outside of the gaijin crowd and gaijin hunters. If a Japanese person insists on speaking English to you, he is probably trying to practice his English and is a famous "English Vampire"!

If you're thinking of finding Japanese women on dating apps, know that it's the place with the most Gaijin Hunters. If you start to dating a japanese, try to find out about her past to see if she isn't obsessed with foreigners.

Not that this is a bad thing, but foreign-obsessed girls date you mostly for that reason and not because they love you. The danger of dating a Gaijin Hunter is that you are replaceable. I myself have come across several friends involved in relationships with Japanese women who are possible hunters of foreigners.

If the Japanese says haafu (mixed children) are beautiful, most likely she is a Gaijin Hunter and just wants to have a child of her own. If you are of Japanese descent, don't worry, most hunters prefer native foreigners.

Lies about the Gaijin Hunters

Much of the Gaijin Hunter is a myth perpetuated by white men who have a fetish for Japanese women and say they adore them. You know that moment when you think a girl likes you, but it's really just a friend zone? That's right!

When talking about Gaijin Hunter, people get the impression that there are thousands of girls obsessed with foreigners. These people are not uncommon, but they just have different fetishes like many people.

Sometimes these girls prefer a European, a black or maybe someone who knows the English language. It's just people with different tastes like the Brazilians, who end up getting excited when it comes to finding what they like.

Not to mention that many Japanese people like to associate with foreigners because they don't have good experiences with their own people. In the same way that many foreigners who like Japanese women tend to be rejected by their own race.

Despite talking so much about these hunters, you can live in Japan for decades and never come across these people.

The article is still halfway through, but we recommend also reading:

Do I need to be afraid of hunters?

I don't think so, in fact it's not even good to label people with that term. Many Brazilians go to Japan with the same objective, to hunt Japanese. Whether for a relationship or just to practice the language and immerse yourself in the culture.

Even in Brazil we have the famous Japanese hunters who can't see an Asian and get desperate trying to converse in the native language or make friends. I myself am one of those hunters.

In the same way that we talk to Japanese in order to train our language, you don't have to be afraid or victimize yourself with the Gaijin Hunter, doing this is kind of hypocritical. Many complain about the obsession of these hunters, but they are the same.

It's okay that the Japanese take things seriously or excessively as we saw in this article. Just don't have excessive fear as well... Although I personally believe that many readers will actually look for these gaijin hunters when they are in Japan.
