Yeah, I subscribe to several newsfeeds from Japan via my Googly portal - its very interesting to watch them thrash about it. I understand their fear of having their culture buried instead of newcomers smoothly integrating into it.... you only have to watch Europe's mixed results with that bag.

I dare say unless they start a massive breeding program and couple that with some serious attitude shifts on the part of the grumpy males they're hosed At the very least they'll need to get over the idea that you have to look japanese to BE culturally japanese. Hopefully, they're taking some notes from the occasional success of some countries in incorporating non-homogenous peoples into a single culture. I don't really want the world to become one homogenous culture though some overlap is fun.
