Wikipedia definition
3. Miaior omiai is a Japanese traditional custom in which unattached individuals are introduced to each other to consider the possibility of marriage. "Miai" or "Omiai" is sometimes translated as an "arranged marriage" into other languages. Miai has done for centuries in Japan what can be described as "a meeting opportunity with more serious considerations for the future". Some Japanese people consider that descriptions of miai in non-Japanese languages do not match reality in Japan.
