Please log in or register to do it.

One of the more curious facts about Japanese society is that it is culturally and ethnically homogenous, with over 98% of Japanese citizens being considered ethnic Japanese. And comparatively speaking, there is only a very small proportion of citizens who are either non-Japanese or have mixed Japanese blood, known as “hafus.” This creates both unique challenges and unexpected advantages. To understand better what they actually face, today we’re going to meet three “hafu” Japanese to discuss their experiences of living in Japan.
