How could Japan accept migration.
The population of Japan is decreasing with quite a rapid pace. And it is becoming more and more inevitable to accept migration in order to maintain the national population growth. However, Japan is such a homogeneous society and hardly had been any cultural mixture with other Asian countries. In fact, if we see the history, we found that Japan has been isolated from Asian countries whose westernization in the mid 1800s was quite notable. Many psychologists suggests that Japanese people do not perceive themselves as belonging to Asian region, rather, a part of western civilization. There are many cases of discrimination against other Asian countries, and they are so not willing to accept migration. Of course the big conflict of interest among Asian countries including Japan, but I think it is time to be accepting each other. Is it really hard? My opinion is it is really hard, but necessary, therefore there should be some way to do that. Thank you.
