I enjoy many of the The Japan Times’ articles online, but I do have one beef to share. I would appreciate it if you could interview more Asian Americans to get their viewpoints. You will find their views are very different from Japanese nationals and white-skinned foreigners.

As Asian Americans, we are not viewed as Japanese or as foreigners. Which are we? We lost our identity in Japan, only to find it once back in the United States. I’m sure this also goes for Korean and Chinese people who were born in Japan. They’ve got it harder!
