Anthropology, it’s very interesting, fascinating and what’s more useful even in daily life as we encounter with people with different cultural backgrounds and habits who may speak completely different languages from Japanese.
“Japan’s isolated islands”
Many Japanese people say that. And Japanese people often express that they aren’t used to different cultures. Also, some believe that Japan is a homogenous country that has no cultural, linguistic, genetic and physical diversity. But, wait a second! Actually, in Japan, there are the Ainu, Ryukyu, Chinese, Korean, Brazilians, Vietnamese and so on. What’s more, what we call Japanese are the result of mixture of different people with different cultures, languages, ancestries and so forth.
It’s also important to analyze critically notions that we take for granted; Japanese ethnicity, society, language, heritage etc.
That’s why Anthro JP is devoted to introducing ideas about humans, language, culture, human biology, gender and anything related to anthropology.
