Last time I was in Japan there was a big meetup for non-binary and lesbian folks nearby and it was chill.
While bureaucracy and laws are still garbage for lgbt people in Japan, I think most people's ignorance of trans and gay issues is a more innocent lack of knowledge as opposed to the "burn in hell" stuff you'll encounter elsewhere.

If I remember correctly, approval of homosexuality is statistically higher in Japan than in America, with an extremely noticeable generational gap. I'm pretty sure it's the old people who suck, and they're in charge.
Hopefully when they die out things will get really gay.

I'm... not straight

I was born intersex myself, and as a result of this (or how I was raised), I personally don't see a lot of value in labels. Even male and female. Are they really important?
Evidently they are for a lot of people, but I often feel like I'm watching everyone play a weird game with made-up nonsense rules that they're weirdly invested in.

For reference I've been living as female since I was like 12 or 13 but the more I think about it the more it feels like an arbitrary thing that was somewhat pushed on me. Even at the time, seeing how differently people treated me when I hadn't actually changed at all was just really really weird.

Anime.

It's because a creepy and bad anime "culture" spawned from sites like 4chan, which are like strange time capsules for early 2000s internet (and are also safe spaces for internet slime people who are not wanted anywhere else).
The people who belong to this culture are also themselves time capsules in that they are permanently 14 years old.

This specific subset of nerds is still going to exist 20 years from now and they'll still be using the exact same 2001-era slang and it's going to be weird and awful forever.
