Women hoping to find Mr. Right in 2018 should check for dates on the Otoko Goyomi (Men's Calendar) published by the village of Otari in Nagano Prefecture. The calendar showcases a dozen local bachelors who are looking for wives.

Otari is promoting the charms of its rustic scenery and hot springs along with the strong men living in the mountainous region. It hopes the calendar will help the 12 men find wives either within or outside the village.

The village office will serve as an intermediary if a woman wants to go on a date with one of them.
