This pretty much will answer this type of question and more.

Asian Americans | Pew Social & Demographic Trends

Japanese are #1 in this category, and I believe Filipinos are #2.

Granted this is Asian Americans, but it can correlate well into Asians in general.

In general, are women on the Asian continent more or less race conscious when dating interracially then peoples (non-black persons) of not only of North America but South America too? Are they more or less likely to date and/or marry an African-American male? To those whom are African-American/Black and male, how are your experiences with women in Asia? Also, which Asian nationalities are more or less likely to interracially date?
I think it really really really depends on each individual family.

Some Asian families, almost completely prohibit dating outside of their culture - Indian, Korean, etc. Others seem to be a little more open to it.

Filipinos, for example, seem to have little issues dating outside of Filipino ethnicity. They'll marry whites, blacks, koreans, japanese, seemingly well before they'd marry their own.

Japanese, in my experience, seem to be more open to marrying outside of Japanese, than their counterparts in Korea, for example. Koreans can be very nationalistic and xenophobic when it comes to marrying outside of Korea. (An exception for older Korean males marrying southeast asian women though).

I'm assuming your a black guy, so you are most interested in best places for black men. I'd say Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand.

If you are a black guy, you'll probably get a lot of resistance from Koreans, probably Vietnamese as well. You can also forget about India/Sri Lanka/Bangladesh/Pakistanetc. over in South Asia.

Of course the same can be said in many places. Most places, whether they are white, black, asian, hispanic, etc. they will date outside their race but not MARRY into it. Rare is the woman who can look past it. I'm a lucky SOB in that regard.

Korea is much the same, Thai much the same, China, etc. Same in much of Europe, Africa ... doesn't matter where you go.
That's what I've noticed in Japan as well. Black men are 'fashion accessories'. Japanese women simply like to be seen with a black male.

Korea, not at all. Occassionally, you'll see it. But, there seems to be more resistance. That said, there is also resistance against anyone who isn't Korean. That's not to say that non-Koreans don't date/marry Koreans, but there is a cultural resistance against it.

I haven't noticed much cultural resistance whatsoever in Japan.

Indonesian & Malay women like foreigners but most are Muslim so they can only marry you if you are Muslim also.

Indian women are a tough nut to crack if that's yor thing.
Yeah, definitely agree about Thai and Filipina.

Indonesians actually date/marry internationally quite a bit. They seem to seek out non-Indonesians.

Malaysians however, they seem to have very little interest in dating outside of Malaysia, at all.

I think that's generally true, among educated people.

But, when it comes to countries like SOuth Korea, most Korean women are going to be marrying into more money and more wealth, if they marry Koreans.

All the many English teachers scrounging around Korea, are kind of well-known to be a bit on the cheap end of the financial spectrum.

That being said, if a person goes to Philippines/Thailand/Indonesia, than the girls will assume you're a walking ATM machine, so you'll get more of that 'he'll 100% support me and everyone I know, I've hit the jackpot, if this foreigner marries me!'

That seems just about RIGHT!

I've been in and around Asia for about 15 years, and Japanese and Filipino definitely seem to be the most willing to date/marry internationally/interacially, etc.

I can't think of a 3rd country that would be as strong, but I'd probably nominate Thailand, if I did.

I would say with Japanese, Korean or Chinese women, that it would depend on the individual, because I have seen both sides (e.g. - open to interracial dating and those who are not).
really depends on the situation...

most likely to date/marry a white man(chinese, thai and filipina- green card/white is right mentality)
though either filipina/thai would marry a japanese or korean due to the same circumstances

most likely to date/marry interacially all around(white/black/mexican/arab) is japanese


least likely to date/marry non-white non-asians.....koreans, thai, filipina

these are for asians in asia
