When it comes to beginning a relationship in Japan, the level of shyness seems to be significantly magnified, possibly due to the lack of developing communication or flirtation skills with the opposite sex during adolescence.
In Japan, most do no begin to date until sometime after high school, primarily due to the high demand on the students to get into a good college.
Generally, one party will E-Mail the other, telling the other that they enjoyed themselves and wish to continue further by going out again, or just thank them for the nice time, which may or may not imply that they would not be interested in another meeting.
Typically, if a meeting is desired, either party will send another message within a week or so, otherwise, it is assumed that they wish to go their separate ways.

There are numerous places people may go to meet or talk to new members of the opposite sex.
