Japanese gay couple Hiroko Masuhara (L) thank Tokyo's Shibuya ward for its decision to issue "partnership" certificates to gay couples, outside the local government office on March 31, 2015A Tokyo council voted on Tuesday to issue "partnership" certificates to gay couples, the first such recognition of same-sex unions in Japan. Assembly members in Shibuya district -- a business and shopping hub that is home to international firms and embassies -- passed an ordinance that will allow their officials to start giving out the certificate as early as this summer. "I'm happy," said Koyuki Higashi, a gay rights campaigner who held a wedding ceremony with her female partner at Tokyo Disney Resort in 2013. "I hope this movement will be spread across Japan and discussions on same-sex marriages will accelerate," said Higashi, who has been living in Shibuya for four months, adding she and her partner Hiroko Masuhara plan to get a certificate.
