In Landmark Ruling, Court Says Japan's Ban On Same-Sex Marriage Is Unconstitutional

quote [ Advocates hope the decision will set a precedent for marriage equality lawsuits now pending across the country, and help pave the way for same-sex marriage in Japan — the only G-7 nation without it. ]

Not actually a ruling that legalises gay marriage, but one that says the current status quo is illegal. It give parlament time to work something out which could result in a civil union situation as a mentioned possibility. Still, it is a lot more hopeful looking than many were expecting just a while ago.
