I think so and I think it’ll get better as younger Japanese are more tolerant than their grandparents. There are still some scars from WWII that carried onto some people in how they think of foreigners and haafu. Some of that is still evident in Okinawa, if you talk to some mixed kids there that go to public schools which is why AmerAsian School in Okinawa came into existence.
I think in general Nihonjin tend to look at us a bit more favorably than your average foreigner but they still need time to figure out if we’re a good or bad person, a giver or a taker, real or faker, etc. Not to say they should do so but it’s one step to where Japan needs to be which is across-the-board tolerant towards anyone who is different from the masses and with that I include Zainichi, Ainu, Uchinanchu and any other minorities.
Nice portrait picture!
