On Aug. 18, the Ibaraki and Saga prefectural governments signed an agreement to mutually recognize “partnership oaths” made by sexual minority couples in their prefectures. They are the first prefectures in Japan to do so. The pact will enable couples who have already taken an oath of partnership in one of the prefectures to relocate to the other prefecture without making another oath. (Abridged)
