Japan is a massive market for reggae and has been for decades.
Not white artificial reggae but true Jamaican reggae.
Here is Tenor saw in concert in Japan in the early 1980s.

That was cool and I love seeing none blacks embracing black cultures because it only proves how great those cultures are.

The Chinese have been heavily involved in the raggae music scene in Jamaica since the 1960's!

For more information, just click on the following link:

Reggae's Chinese progenitors

Excerpt: "For a relatively small island with a population of less than three million inhabitants, Jamaica has exerted a disproportionate influence on the world's popular culture.

Reggae music, the unique, infectious hybrid put together by the island's masterful musicians in the 1960s, is now one of the most popular forms of music on the planet; the iconic figure of Bob Marley, often described as "the first Third World superstar", has been rightly feted as an exceptionally talented singer-songwriter whose universal messages of self-determination have struck chords with people on all continents.

Everyone knows Marley was Jamaican, yet few realize his first recording was made by a Jamaican record producer of Chinese origin, just one example of the crucial yet largely hidden role that Chinese Jamaicans have played in reggae's creation and dissemination."

Those East Asians are very good at copying, like they actually do it well. Also Filipinos are huge into break dancing.

I love this post because there is an assumption that people of any race or ethnicity should appreciate something worthy of acceptance when they see it. Reggae is powerful and should be embraced, period!!

Bob Marley, Whalers, Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spears, Jacob 'Killer' Miller and many others worked hard to get this music out and it is great it is being embraced across the world!!

Jamaican culture is not a black culture. It is just jamaican culture. I am a white Jamaican and I see plenty Asians, Indians and black Jamaicans that embraces our culture. There is no such thing as a black culture. Every culture is unique to their country despite the race.

BS... of course Jamaica a Black country with a Black culture. Just because newcomers arrive, it doesn't change the fundamental culture.
Howe many white or Asian reggae stars have their been out of Jamaica? How many jamaican traditional recipes were invented by whites or Asians? None... Jamaica shares similarities in cuisine with African-Americans because of our shared transatlantic slave history. You live there, but you did not create any part of the culture that Jamaica is known for and that tourists visit Jamaica for. You are just a resident. If I move to France, French culture doesn't suddenly stop being white European culture, just because I live their and am Black.
