What is Takurei’s Room?


Welcome to Takurei’s Room. My name is Rei, and I’m an American currently engaged to my Japanese partner Taku.

Taku and I would like to share with you our daily lives, as well as provide translated and original resources to help others understand what it’s like to be LGBT in Japan.

Please have a look around, and be sure to reach out to us with any questions or comments. If you’d like to support our work, please visit us on Patreon.
