Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Japan accepting of differences?

Answer this Question

When we asked people about diversity in Japan and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Most people are very conservative. There is a sense of purity in relation to race that makes some multi-race relationships unaceptable by family members," remarked another expat in Okinawa, Japan.

"Yes, there is a lot of diversity in Japan. People in Japan are generally accepting of differences, and there is a strong emphasis on respect for others regardless of their background. Japan is home to a variety of ethnic and religious groups, and there is a long history of cultural exchange and integration. Japan is also home to a large number of foreign residents, and the country has a reputation for being welcoming and tolerant of different cultures," said a member in Japan.
