Non White Foreigners in Japan

Post by leonl » Wed 07.02.2008 2:01 am

I imagine being a foreigner in Japan is tough enough. But can anyone here speak to what it's like to be a Non white foreigner or at least direct me to somewhere that would have accounts of what it is like?

Not sure what flavour of non-white you are referring to but a quick google search on African American Japan gets quite a few hits.

Chinese and Korean people living in Japan are "Non White Foreigners"

This old thread may be of some interest to you then.
