Ties That Bind Us

Core

Village

National

Do Japanese care about national identity?

From a personal perspective, “yes” (food, costume, sports)

But from a basic daily- bread point of view, “no”

Thus, foreigners who can lead the breadwinner sector has a role and will be accepted

Core is sacrosanct to Japanese, everything else is weighed up in context of benefits and politics

Breadwinner focus: Company OR paternal family unit

Common bonds comprise a “village”: Sports team, community, school, business sector (Dango, bureaucrats)

National identity: Race, language, common education, socialist and feudal/capitalist conflicted feelings
