‘Hybrids’ thrive in Japan, Aussie says | The Japan Times Online


The social commentary starts early. 🙂
The article below is by an Australian who has lived in Japan for 25 years. He suggests that a foreigner does not need to become Japanese to be accepted by the Japanese. I think that there’s something in that. I read too many opinions like ‘Japan is a homogeneous society’ and references to long periods of isolation in its distant history. About time there were some counter arguments. It is true that compared to Australia, Japan appears mono-cultural, but then so do many countries.
