Concerning marriage procedures when a foreign national is involved (in case of a Japanese-style marriage)

A marriage must be registered by submitting a Marriage Notification at Kobayashi City Hall regardless of the nationality of the persons involved. If the requirements are met by both parties and the notification is accepted the marriage can take place. Foreign nationals must submit a certificate of legal capacity to contract marriage which can be obtained at the embassy (general consulate) of the native country of the foreign national wishing to marry. If you submit documents written in a foreign language a Japanese translation must be attached. 

Although a marriage conducted in Japan is valid in Japan, please inquire at your native embassy (general consulate) to make sure the marriage is valid in your home country as well. 

 

If you are a foreign national or plan on getting married to a Japanese national (Japanese-style), please prepare the following items and come to the City Hall counter.
