So Japan is full of Japanese people, and you’d mostly be correct, but some of us live near a place we like to call Little Brazil (Ota) where a lot of the people are half-Brazilian, are Japanese but grew up in Brazil, or are Brazilian but have grown up in Japan.
This sword in the window was something unusual. Sometimes, it’s a flag (I’ve only seen Brazilian), sometimes it’s stuffed animals (like Pooh Bear or Hello Kitty). And sometimes there will be signs around the neighborhood in Japanese, English and Portuguese.
I guess my point is that there are more than just Japanese living in Japan. And I mean this besides the obvious foreigners. Just like that old saying, ‘don’t judge a book by its cover”.
Oh, and the guy who has the sword is apparently Brazilian.
