Why don’t Japanese married couples hold hands?

Some do.

I suspect this is more of a traditional thing. Older couples growing up when this was not the social norm, so they still don’t do it today.

But adventuring around in Japan today you will notice more and more couples holding hands. Though many will be younger, possibly unmarried couples, it is more frequent today to find married couples holding hands too.
