I found this reading to be extremely interesting. I was most surprised to learn that there were minority indigenous groups in Japan, such as the Ainu and Okinawan people.
-Is it reasonable to assume that these indigenous people have 'integrated' enough into the rest of Japanese society over hundreds of years, and that they are, in fact, part of the monoethnic group that is 98% of Japan?
-How does the distribution of foreign nationals and their jobs in Japan relate to Japanese opinion and stereotypes of people from those countries?
-According to public polling, what do Japanese people think is the best way to solve the problem of labor shortage in the coming years if a high number still disagree with allowing immigrants to work in the country?
