I just thought i'd share this book with you, although you may already know of it / have read it. It's called The Cape: and other stories from the Japanese ghetto by Nakagami Kenji . I had already bought it when we had our visit from Koizumi Maya, but I was reminded of it when she was talking about the racial purity in Japan. It's written by a man from the burakumin minority, someone who does not fit into the homogeneous nature of the Japanese.
