    2. 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.

    3. They’re called Ainu.

      The Asian Japanese are from China.
