JAPANESE MARRIAGE

Nakodo

A "Nakodo" is a go-between who negotiates between both families.

Immediately after the marriage proposal has been accepted by the bride's family, there is a ceremonial exchange of drinks with the bride family and the Nakodo.

Go-betweens are often selected more for ceremonial purposes. They may be elderly couples known and close to either or both of the families to be united in marriage.

In the picture above the go-betweens can be seen one of each side of bridal couple, with the parents on the outside. This clearly indicates their historical importance.
