This would ensure all Japanese children would grow up with very good English speaking skills and give young women encouragement to have more children. Government run Japanese language programs. It would very prudent of the local governments to hold daily language classes in a public facility that aid foreigners in understanding and learning the Japanese language and culture. This would help foreigners assimilate better in the society which would benefit Japanese people as much as foreigners. The government should also declare that employers of foreign nationals cannot forcibly overwork their foreign employees to the point where they cannot attend these language classes thereby making their integration into Japanese society more difficult and more time consuming.
The companies must allow employees to attend these classes. In a perfect world, this would happen. However, I am not optimistic. I know the Japanese system too well. The Japanese politicians will never implement such drastic measures to save their country. None of them have ever shown themselves to be mavericks. This is the really sad part.
There are ways to fix this country. People just sit and discuss and pretend they are concerned, but no one really is. The Japanese today are a far cry from the Japanese of long ago who would die for their country. Those before thought nothing of committing suicide for their country. What future is left for the Japanese people? There is no such residence card for Japanese nationals. Japanese citizens usually use drivers licences, health insurance cards or passports for ID if necessary. They most certainly are not issued with these or similar residency-based cards currently, I am aware of no plans to do so, and there is no compulsory carrying of ID required for Japanese citizens except to enter an airport.
The previous system required non-Japanese to carry a credit card-sized ID card at all times subject to penalty if not carried and will still do so. Japanese citizens do not have to carry ID and will still not be required to do so. This summer marks the end of an era for foreigners residing in Japan. One main change: foreign residents and Japanese nationals can sign up with the government under the same resident registration system, rather than filing under separate categories, as currently required.
That means foreigners generally can handle more of their bureaucratic needs only with their local municipal office, reducing the need to deal with immigration authorities. The new law is also designed to make life easier for Japanese with non-Japanese spouses. The entire family can be registered in one system, and the foreign spouse can be listed as the head of the family. Under current law, those families have to register under two different systems. Another significant change: longer stay periods on certain visas.
Some specialized workers, like engineers, can stay for up to five years instead of the current three; students can stay for up to four years and three months, up from the current maximum of two years and three months. Re-entry permits are being extended to five years from the current three years. That feature was dropped by The changes come as Japan faces a sharp drop in foreign residents, a trend prompted by the long recession, the reduction in financial jobs following the global financial crisis, and the rising cost of living due to the strong yen.
The number of foreigners who entered Japan was 7. As Submitter MMD notes:. Thanks MMD. One other thing I will point out is that although this has been made a fuss of before back in , particularly regarding water supply — after all, like domestic ethnic minorities were erroneously accused of doing during the Great Kanto Earthquake of , foreign buyers might poison it! The survey discovered 63 land transactions involving foreign purchasers, but Japanese names were apparently used to disguise many of the deals, a subterfuge not recognized by local governments.
This indicates the number of deals in which Japanese land and forests are falling into foreign hands may be much larger than those found in the survey. The survey, conducted from the end of March through earlier this month and covering all 47 prefectures, asked prefectural governments about the number of land acquisitions by foreigners and the size of the land acquired.
Under the National Land Use Planning Law, those who acquire more than one hectare of land are required to notify the prefecture concerned. According to the survey, foreigners bought 57 pieces of land totaling 1, hectares in Hokkaido, accounting for 94 percent of land acquired by foreign capital nationwide. Of the purchased land, about 70 percent was obtained by corporate bodies or individuals in Hong Kong, Australia and other places in Asia and Oceania. Corporate bodies in British Virgin Islands, known as a tax haven, were involved in 11 land transactions.
Regarding such deals, some people believe water resources are being targeted by foreign buyers. In response, Hokkaido and Saitama Prefecture introduced ordinances in March to require prior notification whenever someone tries to purchase a designated reservoir area. Fukui, Gunma, Nagano and Yamagata prefectures are considering similar ordinances. In one example in which a Japanese name was used to disguise a land transaction, a Chinese in his 40s living in Sapporo bought 14 hectares of mountain forest and other lands near the Niseko area in Hokkaido last autumn.
During an interview with The Yomiuri Shimbun, the man said he was afraid of provoking a backlash from the Japanese if he bought the land under his name.
He also said he hoped to resell the land for a profit as he thought Japanese land prices had bottomed out. They feel safe if their deals are registered under a Japanese name. Regarding mountain forests acquired by foreign buyers, the central government said in May last year that 40 such transactions have been carried out in the five years up to , with land acquired totaling hectares. Again, thanks a lot. PS: Comments to Debito.

That is perhaps the best evidence yet of just how outside the Japanese sense of community NJ are. But in regards to NJ, since many CAN see an alternative, the oft-touted national narrative often makes even less sense. Even before Fukushima, being told constantly, for example, that Japan is 1 at just about everything, that only Japan has the best stuff in the world be it vegetables to consumer electronics — even crappy housing under generations of recycled mortgages are somehow justified and has the safest classless most equitable society etc.
Then one begins to wonder if the national narrative is not a form of group psychosis. This was the biggest denouement after Fukushima, when a lot of people, seeing the lies and obfuscations that were coming out of the media essentially to protect the elite and corporatist sides of Japan , lost hope that Japan could ever fix itself. Wednesday marks the year anniversary of the Community pages, which have been providing news, analysis and opinion by, for and about the foreign community in Japan since May 9, Here, an editor, columnist and writer who helped make the section what it is today reflect on the first decade of the Community section.
I remember my first article on the Community Page back in June , after I jumped ship as a columnist at the Japan Today website. Having been an infrequent contributor to other publications, I was impressed by the comparative professionalism at The Japan Times: I was never forced to toe any editorial line by the Community Page unlike, say, the vanity projects that pass for English-language newspapers at the Asahi and Yomiuri, who tend to take criticism of Japan in English by NJ authors as a personal affront.
I have been honored to not only have had more than a hundred of my articles featured here since , but also to have the ideas debated in a venue that people, including academics and Japanese policymakers, take seriously. They claimed that you could examine biotic evidence at crime scenes and tell whether the suspect was foreign or not. I then pulled up the policy and read it back to him. Can you? Plus, in a country where the police ignore media scrutiny and even get away with murder ZG, Nov. In the s, communities were forming during the influx of foreign labor, with some regions reaching double-digit population percentages of NJ.
In the s, NJ communities came under attack by xenophobes and chauvinist politicians who firmly believe the fiction that more foreigners means less Japan. The Community Page, despite all of that, stands as our outlet, and our legacy. Long may it run. Meanwhile, despite international protests about the GOJ not being a signatory to the Hague , Japan has been dragging its feet for years now on signing and as I have argued in the past, will probably caveat its way out of enforcing it anyway , as it has done with other treaties like the CERD and the ICCPR.
Families of Japanese nationals kidnapped by North Korea have protested an attempt by a senior US diplomat to link that issue to parental child abductions. They say Campbell discussed parents who take their children to Japan without permission after the collapse of their marriages to US partners. The US side reportedly explained that whether they are by a state or by parents after a failed relationship, they are still abductions, highlighting a difference in how the North Korean abductions issue is perceived.
Campbell devoted nearly half of his time at the meeting at the State Department to stressing the importance of the parental child abduction issue, according to Teruaki Masumoto, whose sister Rumiko was abducted by North Korean agents. The United States and other countries are currently pressing Japan to sign an international treaty on dealing with cases of parental child abductions. Campbell brought the issue up despite saying it was not related to the abductions of Japanese by North Korean agents in the s and s, Masumoto said.
Campbell, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, was meeting with a Japanese group comprising family members of abduction victims and a cross-party group of Diet members dealing with the issue. After Campbell later left the room, his deputy Jim Zumwalt explained to the Japanese side that Washington will continue to take up the abduction issue appropriately, Masumoto said. If the Japanese pubic believed that Washington was linking the two issues, the relationship of trust that has been built between the two countries could collapse, he said.
The Japanese group also provided the U. The group said they plan to meet with U. Japan will seek Diet passage of a bill to ratify the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction during the current session through June. Japan is the only member of the Group of Eight developed countries yet to join the treaty. Thank you. Assuming you are in Japan. Who cares? Why should you care anyway? Why, in these days of seemingly-endless self-sacrifice in Japan, do people have to turn on themselves like this and just make things worse for everyone?
Especially themselves? So let me pose it. Twenty five percent of foreigners living in Tokyo left the country temporarily following the March 11, disasters, according to a recent Tokyo Metropolitan Government survey. It obtained responses from a total of Tokyo-based foreigners. According to the survey, among those who had briefly returned to their home countries following the disasters, nearly half were foreigners who have lived in Japan for less than three years, hinting at the tendency that the shorter a foreigner had lived in Tokyo, the more likely they were to leave after the disasters.
Meanwhile, 56 percent of the respondents said they did not leave Tokyo following the disasters, while 5 percent had moved to the Kansai area in southern Japan or other places within the country. In terms of the means foreigners used to collect information related to the disasters, 75 percent said they relied on TV broadcasts, 37 percent used the Internet, and only 7 percent read newspapers at the time. Among the respondents, 44 percent said they used mobile phones and 28 percent used e-mail as a means to contact relatives and friends immediately after the disasters, though only 51 percent reported the attempt was successful.
At the same time, the survey also hinted at the need for information provided in easy Japanese, based on the results that while 76 percent of the respondents said they could understand Japanese, when asked if they could understand the language if simple phrases are used, responses increased to 85 percent. The survey also showed that 41 percent of the respondents had never experienced earthquakes prior to moving to Japan. One year ago — less than two months after the Great East Japan Earthquake and with the Fukushima nuclear crisis in flux — anyone walking the streets of Tokyo might very well have asked that question.
Some , foreigners left Japan in the four weeks after the March 11, disaster, according to a Ministry of Justice announcement of April 15 that year. It was mass panic, a rush for the last lifeboats on the Titanic. The expatriate community had left Japan for dead. Of those , people who left in the first month, about , had obtained re-entry permits, suggesting most were at least considering coming back. Furthermore, a look at foreign resident numbers and the job market for foreign talent months after the disaster show that the exodus was in the end more a trickle than a flood, and perhaps only an acceleration of pre-existing trends.
Certainly in the days after the quake, with a nuclear crisis and all its potential horrors brewing at the Fukushima nuclear plant — about kilometers from the heart of Tokyo — the first reaction of many was to get somewhere else in a hurry. Canadian Jason Yu, a senior IT manager at the Tokyo offices of a European investment bank, says more than half his predominantly foreign staff disappeared soon after the disaster.
Eventually, of the some 70 who had left — many with families — about 50 returned to their posts. The rush for the exits was not, however, entirely illusory. However, what the ministry will say is that the total foreign population in the country fell from 2,, in December , to 2,, by December — a loss of 55, people, or just 2. Moreover, the loss was not disproportionately greater than those of preceding years. A closer look at the foreign population by resident status furthermore shows that the decline was far from an across-the-board phenomenon, with some categories even posting significant gains.
The number of technical trainees, for example, jumped to , in December from , at the same time the previous year — a 42 percent rise. Permanent residents went from , to ,, up 2. Even in categories that saw declining numbers, the justice ministry statistics show a pattern of losses predating 3. The number of foreign engineers, which dropped by 8. Intra-company transferee numbers — those posted to Japan by their firms — have also been declining since In other words, not all the blame for even the modest drop in the foreign population can be put on disaster panic, as the overall numbers — and those in certain professional categories in particular — had been in decline for some time.

What the earthquake and the nuclear crisis have done, according to Oishi, is accelerate pre-existing trends. First of all, Oishi and Wright point out, off-shoring of back-office and non-Japanese speaking jobs was already in progress when the disaster hit. Furthermore, there was already employee attrition in some sectors for reasons completely divorced from the disaster. As Jason Yu points out, there were already staff cuts and transfers going on at the investment bank where he works before 3.
Even the outflow of foreigners with children, which Yu says accounted for a significant portion of those who left his firm, was not all down to the disasters, according to Oishi. In a paper published on April 13 in the journal American Behavioral Scientist, Oishi points out that concerns over the quality of Japanese public education and the high cost of international schools — which do not receive government funding — was already pushing skilled foreigners with families out of the country. The fear and the airport lines in the weeks after the earthquake and meltdowns were real.
The image of foreigners streaming out of Japan in March and April was a strong one. Wright says that she was thanked by Japanese associates for staying, and that her business relationships with some clients even improved when it became clear she would not be absconding.
More than a year on, however, government statistics and employment trends show that the exodus was if not entirely imaginary then at least ephemeral. The reality is, the foreign population remains in the millions, job openings for foreigners and foreigners hoping to fill them remain plentiful, and Japan remains a major destination among the globally mobile. Before I get to the text of this column, I just want to say thank you to the readership for making IT probably my most read and most positively-received.
I wonder if it is for the JT too. Again, I want to thank everyone for their reading, commenting, and support. I really appreciate it. I hope to do columns that resonate as much in future. The barkeeps and clientele who try to slot you into their hackneyed preconceptions of some country and nationality, what you can and cannot eat, and as things get drunker how much you enjoy having physical liaisons with Japanese?
It at least made you really good in certain areas of Japanese conversation. Microagressions, particularly those of a racialized nature, are, according to Dr. Resistance is not futile; it is in fact counterproductive. So in come the coping strategies. But those are temporary solutions. Sooner or later you have to take a taxi, deal with a restaurateur, have words with your neighbors. Therein lies the rub: Microaggressions have such power because they are invisible, the result of hegemonic social shorthand that sees people only at face value.
But your being unable to protest them without coming off as paranoid means that the aggressor will never see that what they say might be taken as prejudiced or discriminatory. The power of microaggression is perhaps a reason why activists like me occasion such venomous and obsessive criticism, even online stalkers. We finally have a word in the English language hopefully someday in Japanese too to identify it, and social scientists endeavoring to quantify it.
Someday we just might be able to empower ourselves away from our own microaggressive self-policing of preconception and prejudice. And we will gain the appropriate respect for those brave enough to stand up to it. And at least the daily questions might become less boring! Twitter arudoudebito. Just Be Cause appears on the first Community pages of the month. Send comments on this issue and story ideas to community japantimes. Hello Blog. May is a rather special one, as Debito.
JT: On May 8, the Japan Times will celebrate the year anniversary of the Community pages, which have been providing news, analysis and opinion by, for and about the foreign community in Japan since May 9, To mark the occasion, we are asking readers to pick their favorite Zeit Gist article of the past decade, be it a memorable scoop, informative feature or scathing critique.
In return, The Japan Times is offering readers the chance to win a B4-size poster above illustrated by longtime Community artist Chris Mackenzie. Please state your preference on the form below. This offer ends at 5 p. JST on Friday, May 5. Some were chosen because they help tell the story of of the last 10 years in Japan, others because the articles proved to be extremely popular — and in some cases simply because they are great reads.
Some examples by Zeit Gist contributor Colin Jones this week include:. Random card checking Fingerprints at the airport Yokoso Japan! Now, those are my kinda Haiku. Go for it! Haiku Debito. It is apparently a very highly rated location on a national scale. I have been meny years with Japanese friends, and have never had a problem.
However, this was the first year that I went early and alone in order to secure a nice spot. I arrived at I told him to shut up, and then ignored him thinking he was just some grumpy old codger , but as I was setting out my sheet and blanket, four more old guys came along to join him, and tried telling me that the place I was in was off limits. I told them that it was against the law to take my photo without my permission…. After the Democratic Party of Japan came to power in , after decades of mostly unbroken and corrupt Liberal Democratic Party rule, there was hope for some new inclusive paradigms vis-a-vis NJ in Japan, one of their smaller party planks was granting NJ undecided whether NJ would be Permanent Resident or Zainichi Special Permanent Resident the right to vote in local elections like other countries do.
The Tsukuba City Council was no exception, even though Tsukuba in itself is an exceptional city. Yet Tsukuba, a city designed to be one of those international communities within Japan, was given in December a petition of NJ suffrage opposition to consider signing and sending off to the DPJ Cabinet. Chalk this one up to the idiocracy that springs up whenever unquestioned hegemonic discourse i. The idiot did it with enough frequency that cops became suspicious because they remembered his claims. Frauds and blaming foreigners are nothing new. But often it goes beyond comical.
We have a trucker in who overslept his appointment and then formally blamed it on being kidnapped by foreigners. We have a bosozoku biker gang that same year who killed somebody and tried to blame it on a foreign gang. Ishihara from has cast a long shadow. As an aside, one game played under this system same-sex couples get linked to one another for inheritance and other family-dependent purposes. Same-sex marriage is not allowed in Japan. However, people CAN adopt each other, and those ties are just about as dissoluble as a marriage.
This is one other unmentioned, of course reason why I believe Donald Keene recently naturalized. If he remained a foreigner in Japan, he could be adopted, but his name would not be listed properly on the koseki and juuminhyou and no rights or benefits would accrue either way. However, if his partner adopts him after he becomes a Japanese citizen, then all the benefits accrue.
Good for Don, of course and my beef, remember, is not with him making these life choices, which he should do, but with him portraying himself as somehow morally superior to other NJ, something the Japanese public, according to a recent fawning Japan Times article, seems to buy into. Take for example one of my favorite sites for procrastination and indulging in hilarious writing: Cracked. We have examples of:. And plenty more. As Cracked.
If Japan really wants to keep its cultural exports viable, maybe it should attempt understand how other people anywhere, including within Japan, might feel about being represented in such a fashion. However, the death toll from the triple disasters is only estimated highball at around 20,, less than a tenth of the overall fall in Japanese population.
The second article is, I believe, more alarmist and latently jingoistic — appealing to nationalism to get Japan to pull its socks up. Why South Korea as opposed to, say, Spain?
- Text W president likes music & `!
- Waiting for a Moment.
- Introduction To Zen Training.
- Hollywood Holdup: 12 (Red Rock Mysteries)?
- Sunrise Robot Anime Taikan.
Whether or not these predictions come true is irrelevant after all, as Debito. It seems that only appeals to nationalism and this time, targeting foreigners outside Japan, not within, as the latter strategy merely eliminated NJ labor and immigration as a possible solution , not appeals to logic, will pull Japan out of an economic nosedive. Table of Contents and reviews here. Some examples there are many more at the link by Zeit Gist contributor Colin Jones this week include:.
Submit via:. I was sent a copy of this shortly after it came out, and was asked what counterarguments to it, if any, I would present if I could. December 18, 1 Why is it necessary to express our opposition to this? Is there a petition out there expressing our support of this? No, because calmer heads do not see any alarm in giving NJ the vote. Why ride the wave of panic and xenophobia being created by the xenophobic right-wing into passing a petition we will regret later? It looks bad for our international city of Tsukuba, with so many educated NJ residents, contributors, and taxpayers, to do so.
But as you and I know as naturalized citizens, naturalization is a difficult procedure, with arbitrary rules, judgments, and treatment of candidates differing by nationality. Other countries have allowed their Permanent Residents to vote in local elections and suffered no ill-effects, including New Zealand, Canada, and parts of the United States. Do not think that this is something you can cite in support of this petition.
In an age when people easily cross national borders, what kind of society does Japan wish to become? How do we determine the qualifications and rights of people who comprise our country and communities? To what extent do we want to open our gates to immigrants? How do we control social diversity and turn it into energy? In sum, I suggest people appeal to common sense and level-headedness. Why do we need a negative petition like this at all? Do we want them to tell our city government to join in the beying anti-foreign chorus, when one of the beneficiaries of your open-minded public was your very election?
Can we betray them by passing this? Is what I would argue. Sad, really. Despite the opposition to the petition that people like Jon mounted, people fell for the shouting down, and it just demonstrated just how disenfranchised and unable to answer alarmist accusations NJ in Japan are. They can, you know, if Tottori Prefecture is any guide.
However, the death toll from the triple disasters is only estimated highball at around 20, , less than a tenth of the overall fall in Japanese population. The number of children aged up to 14 against the total population was a record low The population estimates, which are based on national censuses carried out every five years, include foreign residents.
To calculate the total population, the internal affairs ministry used data from the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry on natural changes in population—the number of births minus deaths—and social changes—the number of persons who entered Japan minus those who left. With deaths outnumbering births by ,, the population in the natural change category declined for the fifth year in a row.
The decrease is widening year by year. According to the estimates, the number of children aged up to 14 totaled 16,,, a record low, while the elderly population rose , from a year ago to 29,,, an all-time high. In the social change category, the population fell 79, from a year ago. Of them, non-Japanese residents who lived in Japan for 90 days or longer fell 51,, the largest decline ever. In looking at the child population, working generation 15 to 64 and the elderly, the ministry said the elderly outnumbered the child population in 46 of the 47 prefectures.
Okinawa Prefecture was the exception. In Hokkaido and 23 other prefectures, people aged 75 or older outnumbered children. Fukushima Prefecture saw the largest decrease in population, with a 1. Iwate Prefecture suffered a 1. A think tank affiliated with the Keidanren business federation is predicting that South Korea will pass Japan in gross domestic product per capita around The 21st Century Public Policy Institute also says in a report issued Monday that Japan could even be dropped from the category of developed countries by unless the low birthrate and dwindling population are addressed.
The institute assumes the population will drop to Under these assumptions, the institute laid out four scenarios in GDP per capita. Let me commemorate a special event. They are having a retrospective and competition with prizes for choosing the best article I have had the honor of contributing about a hundred so far , and you can vote online at the JT from the link and article below. Please feel free to pick another story from among the close to Zeit Gists …. Thanks as always for reading both here and there. But we have examples of:. Some including Cracked.
Tamie Bryant. Family Registries. One game is how gay couples get linked to one another for inheritance and other family-dependent purposes. However, people CAN adopt each other, something Bryant does discuss in her article, and those ties are just about as dissoluble as a marriage.
Good for Don, of course and my beef, remember, is not with him making these life choices, which he should do, but with him portraying himself as somehow morally superior to other NJ , something the Japanese public, according to a recent fawning Japan Times article, seems to buy into. Golly, compared to this, self-appointed hanami police look like nothing. Except when you fall under their dragnet for harassment just for sitting on a blue tarp while foreign. Is this happening to anyone else?
Just wanted to share this story with you, maybe some of your readers have had similar experiences. On Sunday 8th April I went via Hankyu Kurakuenguchi station to Shukugawa, where along the river bank many people enjoy hanami every year. I told them that it was against the law to take my photo without my permission. I took theirs only after that see attached photo. When my NJ and Japanese friends turned up, the old guys took off pretty sharpish. I realize that this is not an earth-shattering case of discrimination, but I think it is important because:.
By taking my photo, the old guys are breaking the law. I want to make sure that other NJ know their rights when confronted by old gits like this. Satoshi Kita, a year-old junior high school teacher, received a ,yen travel insurance payout after claiming his bag containing a laptop computer and other items had been stolen by a foreign couple near the airport train station on Aug.
Police also suspect Kita may have pulled the same trick on four other occasions, including an August incident in which he claimed his overnight bag had been stolen from a bench while he was giving directions to a foreigner, for which he claimed , yen in insurance benefits. Congratulations to Donald Keene, who was granted Japanese citizenship last month with great media fanfare. At 89 years young and after a lifetime contributing to world scholarship on Japan, he truly deserves it. Very funny. You know a public discourse has become hegemonic when you can joke about it.
But when you have an iconic former NJ promoting falsehoods about NJ, we need to put them to rest. First, about foreign crime: As has been discussed in these pages before Zeit Gist, Feb. Hence the rise of foreign crime over the past decade has been, to put it mildly, disproportionately reported in both scope and degree. As always, 99 percent of crime in Japan is committed by Japanese.
Even more so now. According to the most recent NPA figures www. In fact, by more than half — so precipitously that the NPA includes crime numbers from when there were far fewer NJ here anyway to depict some kind of comparative rise. Last year was no different, with crime falling by double-digit percentages in every major category, to below levels last seen in !
This matters because Tokyo Gov. Clearly none of that happened.
According to the Ministry of Justice www. Moreover, look at the largest drop in terms of nationality: Brazilians, falling by nearly 9 percent, for more than a third of the total. Where are Brazilians clustered? Around Nagoya, nowhere near the disaster areas. Moreover, if this column does what the Japanese media steadfastly refuses to do that is, compare Japanese with NJ numbers , we can see that according to the government Statistics Bureau www.

The hypocrisy is palpable. And from what I have seen, the Thai media did not bash either the Japanese fleers or the Thai temps as deserters. The point is, Keene has made his life one of careful, disciplined research, and he should have tapped this wealth of knowledge and reactivated his critical faculties before shooting off his mouth like this.
If he does, he should be called out on it like anyone else. But why so much public self-hugging for naturalizing? I also want to contribute to areas affected by the disaster. Like how? Collecting and driving supplies up to Fukushima? Volunteering to help out at gymnasiums sheltering displaced people? Organizing international fund drives? People who rise to mythical status should not perpetuate myths themselves. Hello Debito.
