    They don’t look Asian when you enlarge the pic.

    I wonder if those are native Japanese people? I didn’t think they had any political influence at that time but who knows.

    They don’t treat native Japanese very well. Much worse than native Americans get.

    I didn’t know that there was a distinction between “Native” Japanese and the…regular Japanese (?) Could you tell us more? Like a wikipedia article name?

    They’re called Ainu.

    The Asian Japanese are from China.

    They look nothing like Tom Cruise. I call shenanigans.
