[In actuality it would be hard for a foreigner to live in Japan. You probably won't get voting right, locals think that most foreigners are violent and if you're going there for the guy/girls; sorry cause they normally prefer their own Japanese.
When I went with my boyfriend in Japan some were very kind, but some gave me very dirty look cause I was with a Japanese man.
So be careful with the racism.
I'm dealing with it since I'll spend a month there with my boyfriend in August and I'm studying abroad there for two years in Nagasaki.
But if you wanna go there cause you're an otaku I suggest you go live near akihabara in Tokyo. I went there and that would be anime heaven I guess.

And also Singapore is one of the cleanest countries so that would be a suggestion ]


are you Caucasian or white? i ask because everybody i come across complaining about racism in Japan and say Japan is racist are ALWAYS white/Caucasian. why is that whites are only the ones that complain about racism in Japan? voting rights are granted to foreigners if they take up Japan citizenship and FYI Japanese people have no problem with dating and marrying foreigners nor they negatively stereotype non-Japanese people







actually, asians are kinda racist and has a lot of stereotypes. Those who will say "no" are liars. Usually, when a white/black foreigner comes in asia, we usually ( i have to admit it) assume that they are here for the pu$$ies especially when they walk around with a local partner. (people usually assume that girls hanging out with foreigner dudes are prostitutes or gold diggers)

we don't initially get racist looks from Japanese because we almost look the same.

I'm actually Mexican and xenophobia is major in Japan if you actually went. The men are the ones that aren't actually that open to dating foreigners and you only get voting rights if you completely change your name to a Japanese one. Even i you're born in Japan but aren't their ethnicity you have to have a foreigner's card wherever you go.
And trust me they stereotype a lot. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, but they still think I jumped the border to the United States even if I keep telling them I didn't.
That's mostly with the conservative elders; my boyfriend's elder family didn't approve of me much since I'm not a Japanese person, but his friends and younger family were a bit more welcoming :)



xenophobia is NOT a major part of Japan foreigners that took up Japanese citizenship are not require to carry an alien card. and currently there is no law requiring people to change thier names when they become naturalized

I've been to Japan more than once and trust me; it's xenophobic. Not as much as in it's earlier years, but it's stil there. And the thing with name changing; it's only with the Chinese and Koreans who have to do that.
And they do have to carry foreigner's cards

you source is Debito a whining racebating crybaby? this man is a big joke he clearly hates the country and the rules for living there and want the nation to change to suit him and who refuse to leave Japan. japanese law states that foreigners are require to carry ID cards to prevent illegal immigration and fyi chinese and koreans are mostly landed immigrants or permanent resident who choose to keep thier old citizenship because Japan does not allow dual citizenship. these are facts that anti-japanese propagandists and complainers won't tell you also Canada and U.S have PR cards which are issued to PRs





if Japan is so xenophobic how do explain these folks?

Marutei Tsurunen (ツルネン マルテイ or 弦念 丸呈, Tsurunen Marutei?, born 30 April 1940) is the first foreign-born Japanese of European origin serving as a member of the Diet of Japan.[1] He is a member of the Democratic Party of Japan, where he serves as Director General of the International Department. He is currently serving in the House of Councillors.


Patrick Lafcadio Hearn (27 June 1850 – 26 September 1904),

In 1890, Hearn went to Japan with a commission as a newspaper correspondent, which was quickly broken off. It was in Japan, however, that he found his home and his greatest inspiration. Through the goodwill of Basil Hall Chamberlain, Hearn gained a teaching position in the summer of 1890 at the Shimane Prefectural Common Middle School and Normal School in Matsue, a town in western Japan on the coast of the Sea of Japan. Most Japanese identify Hearn with Matsue, as it was here that his image of Japan was molded. Today, the Lafcadio Hearn Memorial Museum and his old residence are still two of Matsue's most popular tourist attractions. During his 15-month stay in Matsue, Hearn married Koizumi Setsu, the daughter of a local samurai family, and became a naturalized Japanese, taking the name Koizumi Yakumo.


Masayoshi Son (Japanese: 孫正義, Korean: 손정의; born August 11, 1957 in Tosu, Saga Prefecture, Japan) is a Korean-Japanese businessman - whose grandfather came from Korea to Japan - and the founder and current chief executive officer of SoftBank Capital, and the chief executive officer of SoftBank Mobile (the renamed, effective October 1, 2006, Vodafone K. K. ). According to the Forbes magazine, his net worth is 7 billion dollars and he is the richest man in Japan [1], despite being the single person who has lost the most money in history (approximately 70 billion dollars in the dot com crash of 2000).

I happen to work at Sephora so I like to experiment with makeup and I was with my ex's cousin who loves to do the same so I let her put makeup on me and the makeup was really bright. At the last minute I had to go see his conservative family so I didn't have time to was it off. His great-grandfather is old school so he thought I was a whore. He wasn't mean about it or anything, he actually told him if the foreign prostitutes were pretty like me he would pay them to play shogi with him and drink tea haha.

He said sorry afterward when I took off the makeup

Find some real research.
And if you read what I actually wrote It says that their acceptance of foreigners has been better.
And there are different foreign cards and those cards can lead naturalized and or permanent residence
I still have my foreigner's card from when I went to school there
In actuality, I happen to think the foreigner's card isn't even as bad as people make it seem to be; I mean yeah it's gets annoying for certain things; like wanting to switch to a new job, but it really lowers crime in Japan.
