Simple Japan news to practice your Japanese:
Apparently, Shibuya has started offering marriage equivalent documents to homosexuals (wish it were just marriage, but what can you do).
On November 5th, two women came and got that certificate. The certificate acknowledges that they're family, allowing them to share insurance and pool their money to buy a home together.
These documents are available to people living in Shibuya and who are age 20 and over.
