Proceed the wedding
Japan and Indonesia has many variations in wedding procedures. We needed to decide where you want to continue it, whether in Indonesia or perhaps in Japan first. As both of us had been in Japan so we needed to afterwards apply for visa, therefore we made a decision to have finished in Japan first.
I came across cases that are surprising the procedures. As an example, in Indonesia, perhaps the wedding will soon be held by both Indonesia nationwide, every person has to get “Single Certificate” (certificate mentioned that you're not in a married relationship), but spouse stated that he’s never heard this kind of certification in Japan. He asked town hallway and so they stated that, generally speaking wedding between both Japanese national doesn't need such certificate, but, for worldwide wedding where “Single Certificate” is required, city hallway will issue the document. Therefore, i believe not plenty Japanese understand the presence for the certification.
Wedding in Japan is proceeded in city hallway. As my papers had been printed in Bahasa Indonesia, we needed seriously to obtain it translated into Japanese by Embassy of Republic of Indonesia before submit it to Japan town hall. We went to city hall to get it proceeded (for list of documents needed, please refer to your Embassy’s homepage) after we got all required documents ready (including marriage registration/kon’in todoke),. For Indonesia nationwide, information on worldwide wedding enrollment and document required could here be found (In Bahasa Indonesia)
Wedding Registration Sheet (kon’in todoke)
City hallway one who proceed our documents called to many other town hallway who've expertise in proceed international wedding and seemed for a few appropriate methods from a dense guidebook. Once more, we knew worldwide wedding had been nevertheless unusual. Nevertheless, individual in control quickly finished the procedures that are necessary explained every thing to us politely. It impressed me personally making me fall in love (again) to Japan.
Throughout the procedure, when I would not have family members title (which will be quite typical in Indonesia), we confused how exactly to compose my name down on “Marriage Registration” sheet, where family members title and final name must be in writing individually. In the long run, I happened to be permitted to compose down my title simply the way it really is by ignoring edge line for family members title and final name. More over, I was thinking I was surprised it wasn’t that I will, automatically, get my husband family name, but. (*In Japan, if a lady marrying a guy, her household title will likely to be turned into her husband’s household title).
Most likely procedures in city hall finished, we got hitched in Islamic method (called nikah) at Embassy of Republic of Indonesia in Tokyo. We received two Indonesia wedding certificates (it really is in passport size, with green and red cover) being an evidence that individuals are now actually wife and husband.

An individual from Embassy of Republic of Indonesia whom took care of our nikah ended up being extremely courteous and mild, he provided a mild advice to spouse, “There are a whole lot of haram things such as for instance pork and liquor right right here in Japan, but in my opinion as a Muslim, we are able to maintain the faith, all the best and do your most useful!”. For Indonesia nationwide, process of nikah can be located right here (In Bahasa Indonesia)
