Description

Ethnic Koreans in Japan--called Zainichi--have a history in Japan reaching back before WWII. Ever since large numbers were brought or moved to Japan, Zainichi identities have been developing within the larger society through and due to political activism, varying degrees of 'integration', ethnic schooling, festivals, ethnic neighborhoods, and in many other ways. Today, these identities are extremely varied and complex yet are often spoken of almost as a homogeneous group under the term "Zainichi." Recognition of the variety within these identities is vital to its acceptance as a demographic of Japan by Japan.
