Shibuya City Partnership Certification
The “Shibuya City Ordinance to Promote a Society in which Members Respect Gender Equality and Diversity” became effective on April 1, 2015. With this ordinance, Shibuya City seeks to promote a society in which sexual minorities are free from social
prejudice/discrimination and respected as individuals. Based on the principles embodied by the ordinance above, and although the relationship will not be treated the same as a civil law marriage under Japanese law, Shibuya City recognizes a relationship between two people of the same gender (based on the gender recorded in their family registers), which is substantially equivalent to a civil law marriage relationship between a man and a woman and which is referred to as a “Partnership” under the ordinance. The Mayor of Shibuya City has the authority to certify any relationship which satisfies certain conditions of a “Partnership” by issuing a Partnership Certificate.
