4. You forget to add that the Japanese insanely blame the 5% of the foreign or foreign ancestry population for most of their problems.Correction to above; more and more in Japan they try to TREAT foreigners the SAME as Japanese but only when it suits them.
1. low pay (like a Japanese)
2. no free apartment
3. you must speak Japanese
4. Taxed same
1. No bonus (unlike Japanese)
2. No local vote or rights
3. chased after to join pointless pension system, tax, insurance etc
In Japan, gaijin are now seen more as a powerless cash cow and second class citizen-but without citizenship.
So in these respects I still say China and Korea offer more, despite their other social ills.
97% plus of crime is done by native blood Japanese, but they will point the figure or be paranoid of any foreign face they see.
Many Japanese are of the mind that if there is a problem, its caused by foreigners and the solution is more inbreeding, xenophobia or racism, more immigration restrictions, and more looking inward. Minus the copying and cheating out of money of the same such foreigners they "despise".
