About "Partnership System for People".

Since November 5, 2015, when Japan's first same-sex partnership system was established in Shibuya and Setagaya wards, the movement to introduce a partnership system has spread across the country, with more than 100 prefectures currently in the process of introducing such a system.
As you read this, your city, town, or village may have introduced a partnership system.
The "Partnership System for Everyone" visualizes the rapidly advancing LGBT partnership system in an easy-to-understand manner, and provides information to those who need it, including same-sex couples and those around them.
